This place has a great menu and equally great food. It's also a lot of fun as it
is like a seafood market and a restaurant. Right on the waterfront where the
fishing boats come in.

Wow, what a great place to eat. We had the special of the day mango, prauns, rice Noddles, delightfully cooked in a mildly spicy sauce. It was so fresh and absolutely delicious. We will definitely eat there again each time we visit Newport. Highly recommended.

Small facility right across the street from the fishing fleet with a retail seafood counter and seating for no more than 30. We arrived on a Tuesday evening around 5:15 p.m. figuring it would not be busy. Wrong! We had to wait for a table - but only about 5 minutes. After eating I'd have waited no matter the length of time. We started with the Calamari - we use this as a "bench mark" all over the world. This as super fresh and grilled. We both think it is now our #1- clearly a 5. One of us had Pan Fried Oysters - another 5. One had Crab Soup - a 4.9, and to finished the meal one Fish Taco - about 4.5 - way to HOT for my wife to even taste - and for me it missed the mark a little. Our server Carly was super and had great recommendations. Yes, I sure wish we lived closer. Other restaurants in Newport have been recommended, but if we are back here I know were we will be eating.

Walk in and see the local, fresh seafood that is about to be perfectly prepared for you. Great location right next to the marina. Our lunch of soup and crab melt for me and fish kabobs over fresh veggies was so good. The kabobs had a wonderful glaze and sauce with an asian feel. We left talking about the fact that we definately wanted to have at least one more meal there, before our trip was over. We did make it back for dinner and we were not disappointed.

This time we split some crab cakes(excellant) and a crab cocktail that is not on the menu, but they will make it for you. Just could not get enough of that dungeness crab! My husband loved the fishwives stew and my halibut was great. Even though we were stuffed, we split one of the berry, mango shortcakes, it was out of this world. This is a casual setting with high quality food. Don't miss!
