You're in Newport, you want seafood, this is the place to go! All seafood, mostly fresh catch; extremely popular! You don't need reservations, although they are accepted; if not, be prepared to wait.

Our meals were delicious, the setting was open and pleasant, and the service was exemplary. Understandably a very popular eatery, so if possible, make a reservation well in advance.

I don't know but we had lunch twice. Entrees were between $15 and $25. The portions were of good size. I don't know if there is a separate dinner menu.

When I visited, there were no GF substitution options, but they do have a designated GF menu and several tasty options. Much more than the 'ol standby of a boring salad.

I am pretty sure this is in reference to the appetizers. The prices for appetizers are listed at 2 to 16 $s - the $2 appetizer is the oyster shooter. The menu at the restaurant will have the specific prices for each item as... More
