We spent a weekend in Newport as a couple. We did the tourist things like tour the mansions. But when it came to food, we visited a few different places, but never saw anything on the menu we wanted or it was very expensive. We always ended up at the Red Parrot. Short wait times, extensive menu and even though... More

We had been to the Red Parrot this past summer when our adult children told us we had to come to try the frozen drinks. Huge frozen drink menu and very yummy! This recent trip we actually sat in the dining room and had dinner after a great day at the Newport Seafood Festival. The menu was extensive with something... More

We've been coming by for several years, the place is huge, three levels, therefore it there is a wait, its usually quite short. Very good staff. I always have the Surf & Turf burger, just because I've never seen it anywhere else and its very good. I've been known to have that meal two or three nights in a row.... More

Enjoyed a nice meal....coconut shrimp. Reminded me of being in the Caribbean. Our server, Mike, was friendly and very knowledgeable too. There is a wide variety to choose from on the menu to eat and drink. Would definitely go back the next time I am in the area.

Red Parrot brings you to the Caribbean, with Bob Marley playing in the background and some Jamaican menu items that make this place interesting, along with lots of wood décor. Although we haven't visited to Jamaica, we've been to St Thomas, Haiti and the Bahamas, and this place made us remember our visits to these places. Again, we picked here... More

This is a popular place and can be very busy and quite noisy at times. The menu is fairly extensive with lots of choices. Everything we had was well prepared, although a burger was somewhat overcooked.

We enjoyed a great meal... fish and chips were very tasty, and big enough to share. Service was top of the line.

I had a wonderful chowder with a simple Caesar salad... service was quick and polite, my friends were happy with their food. The place is rather loud I think in part because it is huge with high ceilings and a lot of hard surfaces. So not a place for quiet romance!!'

My wife and I had dinner here on a Monday night in October 2016. We enjoyed it very much, mostly because it was a beautiful place to sit and enjoy the surroundings and scenery in this lovely section of Newport near the waterfront. My cocktail was fabulous (and most bartenders don't get good reviews from me). The waitress was very... More

Recommended by family who had been some years ago. Nice and friendly with wide selection of food and drink. The lobster Nachos were great and ideal for sharing. The main courses varied in quality. My wife had the stuffed shrimp with green beans and sweet potato fries. Was okay but looked like it was just thrown on the plate. Son... More
