Best. Lunch. Ever.

We stopped for lunch today and not only great service, but a fantastic lunch. Our waitress was prompt and friendly throughout our meal, and the kitchen was speedy getting everything out.

My husband ordered the special which was corned beef hash with eggs and said it was fantastic. I ordered the Reuben - the best I have ever had, seriously awesome. They use real corned beef, lots of cheese, great rye bread, in-house made sauerkraut, and a great dressing. You must try this sandwich...it will ruin all other Rubens for the rest of your life... Steak fries were crispy and great as well.

Our entire lunch including two iced teas was $25...a great deal.

I'm so glad we found this place. It is quaint and inviting with a beautiful outdoor patio. This is a must stop eatery in Newport, you will not be disappointed!

My husband and I were traveling with our puppy, so we decided to try Nana's as they provide outdoor dining. The food was wonderful and we had an enjoyable time. We were sorry that we couldn't stay for the live music, but I'm sure it was great!

You can't go wrong at Nana's. Offering delicious food in a friendly pub atmosphere, it's a popular local hangout well worth trying. We plan to eventually, over time, make our way through their entire menu because it's all good! So far, all the "pies" (meat, veggies, potatoes, and gravy served in a bowl) are wonderful (my favorite is the Shepherd's pie) as are the tasty bangers and mash, and the Scotch eggs on the lunch menu are the best I've had outside the U.K. If you want to try the Tuesday, corned-beef-and-cabbage special ($10), go early because it's so popular they occasionally run out. They have a full bar, a large variety of yummy coffee drinks, and on weekends, live music has the place hopping. On a beautiful day at lunchtime, it's also nice to have the option to sit outside. Tip: For dinner, go early for a good table and the full experience--or go late for an abbreviated menu, lower prices, and faster service.

Nye Beach in Newport is a calm retreat from the grind of Highway 1. And it offers one of two great places not to be missed to eat at when you are in Newport. That place is Nana's Irish Pub.

The atmosphere is authentic, the food is delicious, the prices are right, the service friendly and efficient....oh yes, and the drinks are readily available; this a pub after all. But, for those of you with kids, this is a family friendly location.

The last time we visited this location I enjoyed the Corned Beef and Cabage dinner. This is not to be missed. The corned beef was at least 1/2" thick. (Perhaps thicker, but this may have been a "beer" perception.). This was accompanied by ample quantities of cabbage and potatoes! Simply heaven.

My wife enjoyed the Bangers and Mash. There were more Bangers in this dish than we ever expected! And the flavor delectable. Try as both of us could, we were unable to finish this dish or mine, even thigh we were sharing as much as we could.

If you are looking for something just a wee bit different, with character, quality and value stop by Nanas for lunch, dinner or a pint. You won't be disappointed.

One thing Newport seems to lack is variety in eating choices. It seems like everything around here is seafood, Mexican or Chinese. Nana's Irish Pub is a great break from all of that. The food is wonderful and the atmosphere is fun. It is always packed. Even during the down turn in the economy the last couple years, Nana's always seemed to be busy, even on weekdays. It's suitable for a family dinner or just to hang out with friends. Come early and have a pint after watching the sunset on the beach only a block away, or come later for the live music.
