Stopped in for a drink with the wife. Not much attention from the staff. Ended up going to Buskers up the street for dinner. Not that impressed.

A little pricy on some of the beer but nice staff and cozy little pub. Rugby was on tv and there was a fire in a small wood stove. Enjoyed it

Nice Irish pub with great selection of beer. We didn't have food but the table next to us had food that looked amazing. Dart boards available. Room for large groups. Friendly wait staff.

A real pub atmosphere with sidewalk tables and pool tables. The food was really good and priced right. I will definitely return here.

My family and I went to Newport just to walk around and enjoy an evening out. We got the cheeseburger, sirloin steak, and lobster rolls which were all very good. Our waitress was friendly and the outdoor seating was comfortable. However, because of its location, one needs to expect the food (along with all the other boutiques and restaurants) to... More

What a great find! We stayed at the Viking Hotel and wandered down here after visiting the Touro Synagogue. It is on a small restaurant street about two blocks long containing eight eateries one right next to the other. It was a very hot August day. We sat inside in the shade by the windows which were completely open and... More

Great music. Beer and pub grub. That's really good! What more can you ask for. Outdoor seating. Good prices. Monday night blues is great!

We stopped by for lunch and sat outside because it was such a nice day. They have a huge draft beer selection, I had to have a beer with my burger. They were both quite good. My wife enjoyed her lobster roll, all in all we enjoyed our lunch. The wait staff and bartender were both very friendly.

The bartenders and the waitresses here are rude and unfriendly. Nothing like the other bars or restaurants in Newport.
