Stopped in for lunch while shopping along Thames St. in Newport. The staff was excellent and attentive. Food was brought out on time and hot. The best French dip sandwich that I have ever eaten, and I have eaten them at hundreds of places. Kudos.

Very nice informal meals. Good location and acceptable menu. We enjoyed sitting by the window and watching the crowd walk by.

This place is very popular, and for the right reason. It has a BIG menu, but it also has delicious food. The lobster nachos were really good, could've used a lil sulsa and sour cream like regular nachos, but a decent amount of lobster meat was on them. I got the fish and chips and they were outstanding. Tons of... More

Went to the Red Parrot twice for lunch during my trip to Newport this past June. Both times the staff was friendly, food was good and the atmosphere was great. We would definitely go back next time we are in Newport R.I.

This restaurant is conveniently located in downtown Newport. The menu was eclectic making it hard to decide what I was in the mood for. But, the food was good. The service was fast and efficient.

I have been here several times with friends. Off season in Newport is the best time to go. But, if you go in the summer, it is noisy and crowded! However, the lobster roll is worth it! It is gigantic, delicious, and served with fries. Be sure you are hungry, then eat, drink, and be merry! They have lots of... More

Red Parrot was a last minute find during our family vacation, but it was well worth the visit. Great dining experience overall (family friendly or couples). Our serve Madlyn was phenominal (friendly, accurate, and fast). The mixed and frozen drink lists were delicious and tasted good (strawberry lava, oreo blast, chocolate banana). The food was great as well (Clam chowder... More
