In Newport RI last week, I was looking for a seafood restaurant to try the local lobster rolls. We came across The Landing Restaurant & Lobster Bar at number 30 on Bowen's Wharf. The location is great. The outside portion of the restaurant is right...More

A casual restaurant with an open, airy feel and views of the marina. We ate at the bar for a quick bite to eat. My hubby and I shared a bowl of clam chowder and the fried clams platter. Clams were really fresh, as expected,...More

The claim chowder was wonderfully creamy and not at all fishy! The lobster rolls (both hot and cold) were delicious! Will definitely eat here again on our next visit to Newport.

If you are looking for delicious lobster of just about any size, you won't be disappointed. The clam chowder is rich and creamy. They are located right on the water with excellent views. Our server, Mary was extremely friendly and kind. Give them a try!

Overpriced, watery clam chowder, bland cod fried fish tacos, as seen on menu "lobster bisque $6 , with meat $9" what?? For amazing seafood go to Galilee.

This place is great. They have lobsters up to 5 pounds and a wide range of oysters. The beer menu is great too because it includes local beers. Most of all the view is spectacular.
