“A Solid Version of Standard Seafood”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

This is an attractive restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating right on the river. Any of the tables inside provide decent views and the service is attentive and professional.

It's a classic tourist restaurant and you will not find many deviations from standard seafood fare but it is all well executed, if not memorable. The exception was some spicy calamari as an appetizer. Otherwise, it's scallops, lobster, fish, oysters -- all reasonably priced for the setting, quality and service.

“Lovely location”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

Wonderful restaurant that I have frequented a number of times. On a nice day, its wonderful to sit on the patio and watch the boats go by. Went with a friend, we had two appetizers. The avocado dip was wonderful. For dinner I had the shrimp risotto, excellent and my friend had the cod which she also enjoyed. Our servers were excellent, especially Alex who not only did a great job but was entertaining also. Funny lady and lots of fun to have wait on you. GREAT JOB Alex!!!

“A lovely afternoon on the water”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

My husband and I had a lovely, relaxing afternoon sitting by the river enjoying a delicious meal. Alex and Kristen, our wait staff, were friendly and knowledgeable. The clam chowder and the oysters on the half shell were delicious.

“Excellent seafood restaurant”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

My husband and I were travelling to Newport and remembered that in our last trip we stopped there to lunch and had very good experience with the food so we wanted to repeat it. We were not disappointed:all was great, the seafood was delicious and the staff so friendly. We also enjoyed the view of the bridge and the relaxed atmosphere. I recommend this restaurant to all the seafood lovers!
