“Reliably fresh seafood in an attractive setting...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2014 via mobile

Every year, we kickoff our Newport weekend visits with a trip to the Mooring and it never disappoints. The menu is creative and has something for everyone. The wine selection is also excellent. We typically start off with salads, conch fritters, and shrimp cocktail. Our entrees of choice are always fish, creatively and expertly prepared. We love the rolls being served warm in brown bags. These touches make this place a fan favorite for our whole family.

“Perfect ending”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

Had a wonderful day seeing Newport and choose this restaurant based on other reviews. Four of us had dinner. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed ours dinners. Service was great. We appreciated their asking about food issues. The server that delivered the meal mentioned our request which showed their attention to detail. Food was exactly how we requested and delicious.

“Great Bag of Doughnuts ( seafood fritters)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Enjoyed a lovely lunch at The Mooring. Started off with a Bag of Doughnuts ( a tasty fritter made from lobster, crab & shrimp & served with a chipotle - maple aioli). Then had a delicious Lobster croissant in a tarragon dressing with spiced fries. Excellent meal with a beautiful view of all the boats. Excellent service.

“Lovely outside seating”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

Went there twice....the first was for dinner. Had to sit indoors because it was a little cool to be outdoors. We had such a great meal, from beginning to end that we went again the following day for lunch. This time we sat outdoors and loved the view!!!!
Be sure to get the oysters. They were awesome.

We celebrated our 10 year anniversary here and they made us feel so special. We had a great server, Jessica. She was very attentive and made us laugh, too. Food was amazing. So fresh and unique. We would absolutely go back again!
