“Great, location, food and service.”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

There are many waterfront dining options in Newport but the Mooring is firing on all cylinders. Without reservations we were still treated like valued guest, seated directly on the water, a seasoned waiter, and excellent food.

“Great place to spend an afternoon”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

The atmosphere, service and food are all great treats for a summer afternoon. The seafood entre's are great and the beverages are unique. I highly recommend a visit to the Mooring when you are in Newport.

“Some good, some awful”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

There are some really good things about The Mooring; 1. the staff are friendly, quick & efficient 2. the outside deck is great w/ wonderful views 3. the lobster croissant is really tasty w/ lots of meat on a fresh, tasty croissant although there were way too many dry tips for my liking. However thats not enough to overcome some of the issues: 1. expensive parking- $15 for a 1 hr meal is a bit much 2. the fried oysters w fried pickles were downright offensive- seriously- how can they justify 4 nickel sized oysters, overly breaded & salted hidden amongst a bed of fried pickles- all w/ Wellfleet- home of the world's choicest oysters- just a stones throw away!!! I can't forgive that.
