Son recommended this place when he was here last year. Place was packed due to NCAA games but my wife and I were lucky to get a table. Start off with great service here. Besides our server, two others also checked on us through the night to make sure we were doing OK. Beers and wine were good. Split the... More

Recently visited Newport for the Nth time. Found this pub and greatly enjoyed it. Nice beer selection and friendly bar staff. While we did not eat here, we witnessed some mighty yummy looking plates. Bender burger & a pastrami sandwich. Another time? Just an FYI, if want seat at bar, need to arrive early...fills up quickly.

Stopped by for a beverage after work with a friend, this is one of the most pleasant places i have stopped by recently. Maybe I'm getting on a bit but the atmosphere was PERFECT, not a fan of loud sports bars, the this one could be for you too. Also, their beer selection and pourers knowledge, VERY GOOD. Next time...

In mid December, this place was hopping. Easy to get to, right on Broadway, you could miss it if you're not looking carefully. There is no doubt that the locals come here so there is great people watching. One of the few places open in the winter. appetizers. Prices were reasonable and the staff is extremely friendly. The pub food... More

We popped into the bar because we loved the name, and we are glad we did. They had a fantastic jam band that played fun tunes all night. The beer selection was wide ranging and good. The bar was packed but the services was great. After we had been in the bar for an hour, the bartender came over and... More

After the Awesome reviews it got it was a no brainer. All the reviews were true. Small pub type restaurant with a long bar and about 12... More

We walked here after a business conference near by. There were A LOT of us. This was on a Tuesday night. The bartenders looked a bit nervous when we all walked in but they handled the crowd great. Quality drinks, friendly staff, nice customers.

Thank Marie N
