Honesty I was not impressed by this place. Beyond a friendly staff, the food was nothing special and the atmosphere was extremely loud. If you're looking for good food and drinks in downtown Newport there are much better options.

Great atmosphere. The Jazz quartet was very talented and played music appropriate for the venue. The spinach balls are a great appetizer to share. We also recommend the chicken and waffles sandwich and the salad with grilled chicken.

Great bar atmosphere and no-wait seating in the restaurant half on a Saturday night, what else can one ask for? Well, how about an awesome mussel appetizer and great cheeseburger thin crust pizza. A good time was had.
