Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $5 - $14
Cuisines: American
Description: NO shoes or shirts required! You order at the counter, when your food is ready we call your name and you get your own food. We have plastic tables. If you are looking for upscale dining there are many fine restaurants in Newport. We are famous for Twin Lobster Rolls, Clam Cakes, Fried Clams & Fish & Chips Great prices for freshly prepared seafood. Enjoy your meal on our deck over looking Easton's Beach and Newport's beautiful Cliff Walk . We are NOT your average snack bar but we are a snack bar!! History Established in 1998. Our twin lobster roll special started when our bread supplier shorted our 9 inch rolls that we used to make our single lobster roll. Instead of cutting 6 inch rolls to make a 9 inch long roll we added a little more lobster and made twin rolls. Our customers were surprised and delighted to get two for the price of one so we kept them on the menu. It's such a great deal! We are open everyday

The snack bar is right on the beach and has a fabulous view of the ocean. The food is really good and very affordable. The lobster rolls are probably the best thing on the menu, I had the fish and chips, which were very good. We also had the clam cakes, which were good but could probably have done with more clam. A tip would be not to park in the public parking there is free parking just afterwards.

Was on the beach and got hungry.
Walked up to the snack bar.
Ordered a half dozen clam cakes - they were awesome.
They didn't taste greasy and weren't over cooked.

Stay away from the iced coffee -- no good.

It is mostly concession stand type food, but you can get a little fancy if you'd like.
Prices were actually more reasonable than I thought.

Watch out for seagulls, they'll take the food right out of your hands.

Had the fish and chips ...It was easy access but food was bland. Flooded it with ketchup. Would repeat if hungry and on Easton Beach.

My wife and I were shocked to have such good quality, and well prepared seafood at a "snack bar" by the beach. We are going back to Rhode Island this year from Toronto just for the Lobster Rolls and the Crab balls. A must have, especially for the price.

Exceeded my expectations for lobster rolls at this price point. 2 medium sized rolls and fries for under $12. The roll was stuffed with a good amount of fresh lobster meat. The mayo was light and didn't overpower the meat taste. It was so good I went there twice in a weekend. Also had the chowder which was good but nothing special. Parking was $2 though at the short term parking lot.
