“Best Lobster Rolls in New England !”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

We were looking for somewhere for lunch during the Colombus Day long weekend - Newport was mobbed with locals and out-of-town isitors all enjoying the last of the 'summer-sun' - every restaurant in town had long queues....

I had been to The Pier once before for an early evening drink - and remembered it being just a little bit out of the way.. if you didnt know where it was - or you werent looking for it... you could easily miss it. Perhaps, we might not have such a big wait for lunch..... Bingo! We scored an outside 'Boardwalk' table with scenic views out on to Newport harbor - idyllic.

Erica our server was very prompt. In no time at all we were tucking into the best Lobster Rolls we have found (so far) in New England.

The venue could do with a bit of a facelift and make-over - but otherwise its a good spot for a casual lunch or informal meal - with great views and live-music during the evenings. Highly Recommended

“Very nice view of harbor, good food”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

We found a coupon for stuffed Lobster at $14.95 in local paper. We went with another couple who had prime rib. Both were very good food. The sun setting over the harbor was very beautiful. It is a little difficult to find but worth the hunt

“Amazing View!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

This restaurant has had several owners and names over the years. What never changes is the view of the small harbor that lets you know you are in Newport.
You can dine outdoors, partly outdoors, or indoors, with the wall open so it feels outdoors. It can't get much better than that in the natural ambiance department.
We saw that they offered a special with the choice of prime rib or stuffed lobster tails and we both opted for the beef. One salad as a starter and a dozen littlenecks got us going. Everything was cooked/prepared to perfection. The server was friendly, quick and efficient and the price was amazing. Regular entrees run from 23 to 29 dollars, generally. The specials were $14.99 and worth twice that price.
If you are looking for a nice dinner or just a few good drinks, consider stopping by The Port Grill and Raw Bar.
