This restaurant was close to our hotel, and we were kind of excited about trying a micro-brewery, since we are from an area that has a thriving micro-brew scene. The restaurant is very clean and nice - reminded us a bit of a TGIF, though, pretty chain-restaurant like. Our waitress was very nice and friendly, but the hostess definitely seemed as if she'd rather be anywhere else. The beer was very disappointing - pretty boring, nothing special. The menu and the food was the same - good, but nothing special. I think you could get the same meal at any chain restaurant, so I'd probably not go again considering all the other options in Newport.
