Enjoyed the food very much. The steak was tender and lobster completely fresh. The waitress that assisted us allowed us to make changes to certain things on the menu and in turn it made everything perfect. It was child friendly and my daughter enjoyed the food.

We ate here for dinner and enjoyed it very much. Our steaks, sides, and appetizers were all delicious. The service was good and the atmosphere is nice as well.

Great seafood linguini and the service is out of this world. This was by far one of the best restaurant in have been to in a while. I sat out on the patio and it was great! A little pricey but you do get anew amazing dining experience. Worth stopping by if you are in Newport.

We decided to head to Newport from our home in Southeastern CT to celebrate our daughters birthday and return to college. Had a 6:30 reservation for 7 people, including my wife's parents. We were a few minutes late but were seated at 6:40. Pleasant waitress so no complaints about her at all. Appetizers came out in decent time, although it... More

Stopped into 22 Bowen's during a shopping excursion with family. Best lobster roll and burger in town! Waiter was also very welcoming and fun.

One last night on the coast for seafood. Out of a few options we chose 22 Bowens which is on the Pier. We had outdoor seating. Friendly and efficient service. We spoilt ourselves with a 2 lb lobster and a King Crab each and totally indulged. Just regretted my choice of wine (the New York Riesling, too sweet), but there... More

Went here and sat outside dock side for drinks and wound up staying for dinner. Reservations are recommended, we got lucky being only two for dinner. The polenta fries are awesome! I had the heirloom buratta salad and oysters! Wine selection is fabulous! Highly recommend this to any wine foodies out there!

On the waterfront in the heart of Newport this busy bar and restaurant offers good food and the chance to sit back and watch the world go by. Outside seating is best if you want to people watch and see the boats. Good seafood and hearty sandwiches.
