“Great Water View”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

We really enjoyed this place and I loved getting lobster in New England. The view is really great with the sunset and the yachts. They had live music in the bar that was pleasant but not too loud. We even had time to check out the shops after dinner. Next trip to Newport, I'm sure we will eat there again.

“Very good food, but over priced”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

Would have given this at least 4 stars if the service and prices matched the food. Service was so-so. A bit slow and unremarkable. Had the Lobster Crepe which was absolutely fantastic, but for $19 the portion was a little small. The fried clams were very good but overpriced for the portion. The little neck appetizer had 5 clams I think. We were wondering where the rest was. The food was very good though. If you don't mind paying for the view, maybe the small portions and high prices wouldn't matter.

“The Pasta Sauce Tasted Like Spaghettios :(”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

The first word that comes to my mind...bad food and bad service! Most of our food was sub-par. Some of the seafood seemed to be frozen. However, my father ordered the "lobster mac-n'-cheese". First of all, they placed the "lobster" on top, which definitely seemed like it was frozen, and it was very chewy. Also, the pasta had NO cheese in it, even though on the menu it was described as "mac-n'-cheese." Instead, the pasta was covered in some sort of marinara/red sauce, which actually tasted like either spaghettios or chef boyardee. Disgusting! Even worse, out waitress was rude when I asked a question about one of the menu items. Lastly, when my father told the waitress that the food wasn't good, and she brought the check, she didn't even take the mac-n'-cheese off! She said that "nothing was wrong with it". We had to talk to the manager, who also seemed annoyed. Eventually, however, the mac-n'-cheese was taken off the check. To conclude, DO NOT EAT HERE! There are other places that are much, much, better by the wharf!

“Great view, not so great food and service”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Fabulous view of the sunset. Food is average at best. Service is just ok. Have been a few times and the food has never been great, nor has the service.

Great location, great setup- you can be inside, outside, multiple floors, etc... but this place seems to be a magnet for large groups & bachelorette parties. The DJ on Saturday night was great, the bartenders were super friendly & moved fast- but the crowd was just too much for our little group to manage in. Aside from the crowd, the establishment itself was very nice & I'll probably give it another shot the next time I am in town.
