Good place for a yacht hang out in summer

Food is mediocre at best, but great place to meet other yachties in summer in Newport, winter becomes a student hang out. Also good for live sporting events

We loved the hometown crowd feel and enjoyed playing darts and enjoying their draft beers. It was full of fun people and good football game viewing.

Loved the way this place looked from the outside. It was very quaint inside and I loved the small setting, rustic feel, and gas fireplace. However I was disappointed when I saw the menu and wanted to leave. It looked very basic and it was our first time out to eat on our weekend getaway. My husband assured me he'd... More

What can I say? They have Kilkenny's on draft. Yum. Excellent Irish pub food, nothing fancy but very filling and the price is right. Good service. Booths so not so crowded. Interesting reaing in the loo -- English "wanted" posters for Irish heroes. Most of the folks at the bar are Irish (from the Old Country, not just the parade).... More

Steak tips are the best. Great draft selection plus pool & darts! Outside seating is great for people watching.

My son and I walked past this place on the way to another restaurant. We walked out of the other place due to poor service and came here. The fish was awesome and the fries were fresh cut. I was not disappointed and my son was happy with his fish too. The waitress, even being overwhelmed due to being short... More

Went to the Fastnet Pub for late night drinks, and had a very good time. Locals and yachties gather here for company and good times with very friendly servers and good drinks at a reasonable price. Would go back here anytime.

The place is great to meet old and new friends. They have live entertainment at times. We sat outside theres ping pong in inside pool table. The signs covering the walls are great to read. Food was like your regular pub food service was good. Will go again.

Went here to get a drink. Seems like a more college-age bar. Decided not to eat here since the menu is your typical bar food.
