The four of us enjoyed our meal here. I had the lobster roll which while not on the traditional split-top hot dog bun was loaded with lobster. One of our party had a pasta dish with clams and sausage in a white sauce which he proclaimed as very good. All in all while not a supreme dining experience it was very good.

This Restaurant was recommended to us by our Bed and Breakfast, the Cliffside Inn. This is one of the best meals that my wife and I have ever had. Our waitress was Tracy and she was outstanding! She also helped make this one of the best restaurant experiences that my wife and I have ever had. We were tired after traveling all day and very hungry. The food was tremendous! The portions were very large so prepare yourself. Tracy and the rest of the staff were great! We most strongly recommend this restaurant.

Took the family there based on other TripAdvisor recommendations. Outstanding meal - had the striped bass, wife had pepper crusted tuna, both excellent and very generous portions. If I lived up here I'd be a regular at this place. Highly recommended.

Overpriced, trendy, to be seen and who cares that sthe food and service suffer under this establishments own self importance.

We were treated poorly by the staff upon arrival, as if we smelled badly or something. We are in our early 50's, so this must have meant to hide us in the darkest, hottest corner only to be left for nearly a half an hour before anyone ever came to our table. I understand busy, I understand an off night but when I witness younger groups being serviced long after our seating. I do not begrudge their positive experience but my money will surely not line this establishments pockets in the future, nor will that of our extensive family and friends who frequent our Newport RI vacation home.
