We thought the food here was really good. The lobster bisque was great, the lobster quesadilla was packed with lobster and came with a side of lobster bisque for dipping. YUM. Bread pudding was decadent. Service was friendly. We were surprised to hear the waiter tell some people that came in shortly after us, around 6:30PM on a Sunday evening, that they were out of lobster. huh???!!! Maybe we ate up too much of their supply...

A lot of reviewers and locals gave this restaurant a big thumbs up. I wanted out before the menus were brought to the table. Service was slow, food quality was okay but everyone (guests, servers, bartenders) was loud! Not worth a repeat even in the off-season. Management needs to decide how to they want to market this place because it is central to everything and not worth the price or the patience.

My husband and I stayed in Newport for a few days on vacation. We always eat at least once at the Gas Lamp Grille. My husband had the lobster and mac cheese. He was really pleased with the huge yummy plate he received! Large chunks of lobster really looked appetizing! I had the chicken parm sandwich with frys. You have got to try the FRYS!!! They are sooo yummy!!! That is why we returned another day during our stay, for another yummy dish!! and yes....I got the frys!! oh by the way.....the drinks were not skimpy in any way!! Another great lunch in Newport!
The service was fantastic both days we went!! Nice Job!

My husband & I were in Newport for a long weekend and stopped in for a couple beers our first night in town. They were busy & we were exhausted after a day of driving. Brian met us for 5 minutes, was friendly, funny & had our 2nd beer to us as before we were even done with the first- regardless of how busy the bar was. He was literally one of the best bartenders we've run into- one of the few that we remember in our travels- which is what reminded me of the Sam Malone character from Cheers;) We were only there a short time that night because we were tired but went back on Sunday night for drinks after doing the sunset cruise on the Madeleine Schooner. Again, we sat at the bar, great service & conversation & drinks were to us quick. Also, they had an acoustic guy, Matt Hartke, playing as well (very Jack Johnson-ish but with wide range of songs, new & old) who was super talented. Very cool, laid back night. Again, we stayed a couple hours & had to get up to drive again. Next time we're in town we will totally stop by again!

We had the steak tips marinade and we had no regrets. It's great pub like atmosphere with some noise from the bar and plenty of TV screens to catch a game. We were able to find quiet where we sat. Service was good and menu had a decent selection.
