Fantastic food, staff and service is what I experience each time I go here. The food is big enough to share and is fantastic. We go every time we are in Newport.

Nice little spot by the water. Great for a quick drink and some oysters on the half shell. The market and surroundings make for great people watching. Sit at the bar outside.

I am not sure why I continue to eat out in tourist cities. My experience is when a restaurant has a built in transient clientele, the product tends to suffer. The service was impeccable as would be expected at an upscale restaurant. The food however was hit or miss. If you could taste presentation, this would be a 5 star... More

They have a gluten free menu and hit gluten free rolls, what a treat, even GF croutons for our Caesar salad. This made us feel so welcomed there. I had the Atlantic Salmon that was delicious and grill asparagus. My husband had a Caesar salad with grilled Shrimp, ge said it was the best he's ever had. We had sorbet... More

Stopped in for a casual lunch during the Newport International Boat Show. The staff is very attentive to food allergies (mine,) and they modified the menu slightly. Food was really good and the staff was outstanding. Will be one of our prime stops in Newport.

Our last night in Newport we headed to 22 Bowen's for a wonderful meal. The restaurant has indoor/outdoor seating as well as seating upstairs. They have an extensive wine list and, although there is a great seafood menu, they are primarily a steakhouse. The service was impeccable and the food was perfection. During our meal the place got very full... More

I had the Portbello sandwich which was very tasty along with some crispy french fries(have choice of side) and daughter had French Dip of which I had a bite... More

We were here on the first night of the International Boat Show so the place was hopping inside and out. Fortunately, we had reservations. Menu offered a variety and some unusual seafood dishes. I ordered salmon served over barley, spinach and something else and it was excellent. Everyone in our group of eight enjoyed their entrees and we shared desserts.... More
