When I arrived I asked the server for butter and saltine crackers, which is part of my Good Friday ritual at the Green Derby along with the Halibut. A woman who indicated her family had owned it for 70 years stated they did not have them and had NEVER had them . When I said I had them every time... More

We visited the Green Derby for a special birthday dinner. The food was tasty, and very affordable. Our waitress was wonderful - on top of everything and had great suggestions. We had a great experience. The building is "old Newport", and could use some updating. But, we felt welcomed and had some great food. The bar area is separate from... More

Our service was very good from beginning to end. They have a large draft beer menu with numerous local brews. The menu was... More

An old time resident told me to go to the Green Derby years ago. It was an old Blue Plate Special kind of restaurant, that seemed to cater to the locals. Now under new management, the decor looks the same but with more lighting. Not sure that is a good thing. Same old look, a little tired. Server seemed to... More
