On our way back from Goat Island, we stopped in for a drink. It's too bad they don't have a rooftop area or outdoor seating for when it's a nice day. Only had a drink but noticed that the prices were reasonable for food and drinks; cheaper than other places in Newport.

Low key pub good for playing keno or bingo and having some good, cheap drinks. We went for a night cap as it is directly next to our hotel. We ordered a cheese pizza and ours and the persons next to us came and burnt. It was visually unappealing and tasted bad even after drinking all day. Props to the... More

Not crowded for lunch on a Saturday. Sat at the bar. Small place with pool table. Limited lunch menu. Food was good. Good selection of beers.

A great Irish pub right on the water. We had sandwiches and a beer. A friendly, local bartender with much knowledge of the city. We loved the ambience. Very reasonable prices.

Comfy leather chairs around a small fireplace, lots of TV's, pub food, long bar, lots of bistro tables and chairs, a pool table, jukebox....there's something for everyone there. Couples, families, guys killing a few hours while their wives are shopping, just around the corner from Wyndham Long Wharf and convenient to shopping area on Thames St. MacKenzie is the friendliest...

Came by on Sunday night while we visited in Newport to watch the football game. They had a decent beer selection including some local options. There was a nice crowd of people without being overcrowded.

We were trying to avoid the tour-bus chain restaurants after a morning of mansion-viewing and luckily found a local lobster pound near Goat Island causeway for lunch. However, the Shack didn't serve beer; and since Celtica had the look of a well-used local Irish pub, we made an after-lunch stop. Inside was a fairly authentic Irish Public House décor, lots...

We stopped in on a Friday night late in Sept for drinks and karaoke. The place was empty except for a few locals. We were a group of young and middle age adults (14 of us in all) (with one 18 year old family member in tow) celebrating a naval officer graduation. Unfortunately, we were asked to leave at 10...

Great beer, delicious food...would highly recommend the lobster roll and steak bomb! The people who said it had bad service didn't appreciate the small town family atmosphere- you just go to the bar and get your stuff. Everyone is super friendly. Prices are very reasonable!!
