Definitely go. We visited with our twelve year old. We have weird dietary restrictions. Gluten free, lactose and no garlic. Nightmare. They accommodated us perfectly. Mongolian ribs, pad Thai and chicken and gnocchi. My maple bourbon drink was killer!

Nothing better than a sunny evening hanging out at 4th Beach and then getting a table for dinner inside. Staff is super friendly and attentive. Drinks are creative. Parking is available - which is a huge benefit anywhere in Newport!

We visited on a wet, cold spring day. So the jambalaya seemed a logical choice. And boy was that a good choice. Huge bowl of beautiful seafood, chorizo, veges and spices. Such a taste sensation. Could not recommend more highly.

We went for lunch, off season, so there was no need. The place is surprisingly large, with several rooms, but I know during the season they fill up. If you are there on a whim, try it. The food is great!
