We enjoyed a tasty dinner sitting on the street level, enclosed patio/ porch. The portions were almost too large, but enjoyed every bite!! The wait staff was friendly, knowledgable and attentive. Though the hostess was friendly, she seemed indifferent about finding us a table. Overall...More

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.
