Definitely the best chowder in Newport...we have been there multiple times and enjoy it more and more each time we visit. We bring back quarts of their wonderful chowder home every time. We bring a cooler with us just for this purpose...worth the trip!!

What a great location for dining. We visited on a glorious day in October , queued for a few minutes , staff keen to get us seated and served quickly. The sea air seemed to make the food and drink even tastier. ell worth a visit

Yuck. Steamed broccoli, bland rice and small microwaved portion of fish covered in breadcrumbs and "cajun spices" (salt). Probably because of the glass put over tablecloths, you can hear everyone's silverware clanking. Can only assume that this place has been around so long because everyone tries it once...

This is not the restaurant's fault, but what's with people (male diner two tables down) who mistake their linen dinner napkins for Kleenex???

Stopped for lunch, supposedly have world famous clam chowder (I don't eat it so...you'll have to find out for yourself).
Something for everyone, from salads to full dinners!

We love chowder and no one beats the Black Pearl's in Newport, Rhode Island.

It's filled with clams, every spoonful has at least 3-4 clams, it's thick with fresh cream and just the type of spices you don't forget. It's a secret recipe . If you have never tried it, you don't know what you have missed!
Take a trip! One bowl is a whole meal.
A cup leaves room for another delicious food choice!
