My wife and I have stopped in at Midtown on two occasions while wandering Newport. Both times the food and drinks have been great. We especially enjoyed their roof deck for the air and view of the street level antics outside. Not the least expensive of the offerings, don't expect a light wallet hit for your visit.

The evening bar scene is active but we really enjoyed watching the World Cup with some great specialty drinks, beers and appetizers in the afternoon. This relatively new spot is very popular. Oysters are excellent, the bar is comfortable and servers are friendly and attentive. Evenings get very busy so be prepared.....

My husband and I live near by so we frequent Midtown a lot due to the fact that their prices are reasonable for cocktails and the food is good. The last time we were there we had entrees, one was the striped bass and the other was the blackened Mahi Mahi. The Mahi was a bit on the small side but tasty. The bass was huge, and the mango salsa (I think) was wonderful. The only thing that was a bit disappointing was the lobster risotto. I swear they put a whole stick of butter in it. I couldn't eat more than a few bites. Overall it's a great place to hang out, especially on one of the upper decks. People watching in Newport is always amusing.

A group of us came here for lunch on a Saturday from a recommendation of a friend and what a great place! Upon walking in the place has a pretty large bar area with a raw bar in the far corner to your right. Ahead is general dining room and then there are two more floors above that! The second floor is general seating, a private room, a bar and an outdoor patio. The third floor is rented for parties and has another patio. The entire restaurant is done very well, it is bright airy and clean. It has a great nautical and restored wood feel to the place and has great lighting from the outside.

We had basic lunches which were fantastic. The biggest hits of our table were the mussell frites (we ended up getting two orders!) and the fish tacos - realy great, ask for a side of coleslaw, you won't be sorry. The entire menu was enticing and it was hard to narrow down all of our meal choices. This is a great place and the staff was helpful and visible throughout the meal.

I can't wait to go back to Newport to eat here again, but next time for dinner! Go here. Enjoy yourself.

The dinner was very nice, the food well prepared and very tasty. The tables are large...maybe too large for a party of two when factoring in the noise level. Still, it was a great meal. The service was good. Oysters were wonderful as were the stuffies and the caramelized sea scallops. My wife said her striped bass was delicious.
