“Lobster Bisque the very best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013

We just wanted a bowl of soup for a light dinner. We stopped in at the Lobster Bar and ordered the Lobster Bisque with extra lobster to go. The soup was everything you could ask for in a Lobster Bisque.

“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Like most other restaurants in Newport this one was not exactly a bargain, but the food was excellent, very fresh and the location was great. Our table was almost literally right on the water. Service was a little slow, but our server was very pleasant (though overworked) and the setting was gorgeous so who cared!

“If you like lobster rolls this is the place to come”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

My husband and I had lunch here overlooking the water and it was excellent. My husband had the lobster roll and said it was the best one he had ever had. I had the lobster bisque and stuffed quahogs which were excellent. The service was good and the view was great. We would go back for sure.

“Great lunch in Newport!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

I've been here a couple of times and always had a positive experience. This is not a fancy Newport type hangout. It's rustic...it's fun...it's worth it! You know the seafood is fresh since you pass through the shop on the way to be seated. This used to be only a fish market with some weird little shops inside. Now it is a great waterfront spot to eat, drink and be merry! Today I took my sister and brother-in-law who were visiting from North Carolina. They sorely missed the Rhode Island treats that are almost impossible to get in the south. We walked in, got a great table outside (nice warm day for October) and ordered a drink. The service was quick and pleasant. We decided on two orders of steamers which were delicious! With just the right amount of broth and butter, they were tender and flavorful. We also had the New England clam chowder. Although I prefer Rhode Island chowder, which is a clear broth, I thought this creamy version was very good and had lots of flavor without being "pasty". All in all a great experience. It was nice to treat my family and myself as well!
