First time visit to Newport. Got in after a long drive, tired and hungry - recommended by lady at hotel desk - sure glad. It was also restaurant week so we got the 4 course dinner. Everything was wonderful. Good service. We even went back again after our friends got there and we seldom do that when we travel because part of the fun is trying many new places.

Midtown Oyster Bar now has a special on Tuesdays from 5-7 p.m. Buy a glass of Champagne and receive 3 complimentary oysters OR purchase a bottle of Champagne and receive a dozen oysters. At any time, these 6-8 varieties of oysters are the BEST.

Stopped in after seeing the cool fire lite outside on the 2nd floor. It was just too cold and windy so we sat inside. The waitress was a tad short tempered and never mentioned that it was restaurant week. She was annoyed take we only got appetizers, drinks, and dessert. The octopus and salmon appetizers were great. Good music and atmosphere.

They offer a little bit of everything here in terms of atmosphere. Bar/pub, restaurant, roof top with a water view. We sat outside on a chilly night with a view to the streets and also a view to the indoor t.v. screens showing the night time football. We had a lovely meal, after we got past the first rather testy server... I would love to see steamed clams on their menu. Very hard to find in Newport, but something I would expect to see! Maybe I am missing something - they do serve clams, so why not a bucket of steamed clams? Just a suggestion. We really enjoyed our evening at Midtown Oyster Bar and would definitely go back.

Love this restaurant because of the service, atmosphere, incredible oysters and cocktails, and the most professional management. My husband and I spent the night in Newport for our 5th anniversary and wanted to try this new restaurant. I LOVE oysters and could not be happier that Newport now has an oyster bar in a perfect location with great atmosphere and service. PS the Duxbury Oysters are my favorite. Large, sweet and just superb. Next time I will only order Duxbury Oysters! Great selection of beers and the hot cider is to die for, spiked with Grand Marnier! Steak salad, very good with shaved parmesan. Husband liked clam chowder. Said it was unique for a clear and he enjoyed it. We ordered fish tacos and had to speak with the manager but he was AWESOME. Friendly, knowledgeable and a Newport native. The wait Staff could not have been any better. This new restaurant is in Newport to stay. We will be back.
