“Didn't even stay”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Decided to get lunch during our stay in Newport. After we ordered our drinks we reviewed the extensive menu. Our waitress came over several times to see if we were ready to order finally when we were ready she was no where to be found. When she finally came back we asked her a few questions and ordered. I ordered the Red, Red Russell, which was suppose to served warm roast beef sandwich with cheese. My husband ordered the Sunset Strip Burger. When our food arrived my roll was toasted and totally stale. When I lifted the roll it crumbled into pieces. The roast beef looked like shoe leather. I sent it back. Then I looked at the bacon on my husband's burger, it was over cooked and if you picked it up and tapped it on the plate the bacon shattered like glass. We sent his back and then decided not to be bothered staying, we had wasted enough time. Don't waste your time and money.

“I love their chili!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2012 via mobile

Stopped in for lunch and a beer, Stella Artois, my fave! We split a bowl of chili and I had a lobster quesadilla and he had the chicken popeye sandwich. The chili is soooo good! The sandwiches were delicious. All in all, a good place to eat at a great location in the city.

“GREAT MENU SELECTION & ALWAYS GOOD FOOD”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

When in Newport, we always make it a point to dine at "The Parrot" and have never been disapointed! The menu is eclectic with many choices and the food is delicious! The atmosphere and location add to the many reasons why this is our "go to" place!
