After an exhausting day doing the sights of NYC it was great to rest our feet in this bar. It was vey quiet due to it being Labor Day weekend when a lot of people leave town, but the staff were very friendly especially Barbara with whom I had a good chat. Good selection of beers and food at reasonable prices. Being a Brit I had the best sausage and mash since leaving the UK 3 years ago, transported me right back home, I told Barbara and she seemed genuinely delighted!

Enjoyed our meal - just had burgers but they were very good! Friendly staff and close to hotels in Newport. Only complaint is the noise - music is too loud - not the place to go for a relaxing meal.

Ladies, if you are wanting to go where the boys are, this seemed to be the place. The bartender makes some very lovely specialty martinis, the men were very nice and chatty -- I was with my husband and they were even chatty with him!

The men on either side of us -- maybe mid-30s or so -- were actually talking with their male friend about their relationships with their girlfriends! And it was so refreshing to hear them actually WANTING some advice from their buddies!

The pizza appetizer -- you have to ask for it, it's not on the HH menu -- is very good especially if you request LOTS more basil.

We walked to the restaurant on a snowy night and were pleased with the quality of the food. They had a corned beef and cabbage special and a good reuben sandwich. The shephard's pie was a nice sized portion and very tasty.
