“Food excellent / service poor”
Reviewed May 19, 2012

We arrived for our dinner reservation at 6:30 and didn't leave until close to 9:30. It wasn't like we had a 5 course meal. We waited 45 minutes between the appetizer and main course and then another 30 minutes for our dessert. The food was excellent but either the waitress had issues (the other waitress near us didn't seem to have a problem) or there was an issue in the kitchen.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed May 6, 2012

We went to the restaurant because it has been recommend by the owner of the B&& at which we spent the night. The place is very noisy. The food is average and the service was slow and not effcient. As we were a group of more than 6 people a service charge of 20% has been charged. 20%; for a service below average this is to much.

“Great Food, Great Colonial Atmosphere”
Reviewed April 28, 2012

I was in Newport for a week trying different restaurants out and came upon this place by accident while strolling through the Colonial style village on the Point. This winds up being the best restaurant we ate at, food was outstanding, great Yankee Bean soup and Butternut Squash soup, awesome appetizer and top notch Tenderloin main course, even the bread was excellent. The atmosphere is really nice, service was great and they even had a soft piano player to add the atmosphere. There is a bar area in the rear in case you just want a nice evening with drinks. Only issue may be parking after May 1, so I suggest you park at one of the Newport public parking places and take a nice 5 minute stroll. Highly recommended.

“I just like this place. Try it, you'll like it!”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

The dining room is the first floor of an old house that has been comletely opened up with a small bar at the back. The atmosphere is very comfortable and the food is good. Service can be a little inconsistent from visit to visit in terms of being good or very good but never bad. Drop everyone off then park at the Newport Transportation Center lot.

“Awesome Brunch”
Reviewed December 2, 2011

I was pleasantly surprised with this place! If your not from Newport there's no way you would find it - it pretty much looks like a house but the food is amazing, and the prices aren't bad at all for what you get. Will definately be going here for dinner sometime.
