My favorite restaurant experiences are the are ones I 'discover' without any reference or referral. I just walk in and they proceed to blow me away. Such was the case with The Port. I was strolling along the wharf around 8pm with my nose pointed toward the parking lot with my car when I came across the back entrance of... More

Very busy place - our first stop on our Newport visit. Had a feed of delicious lobster, at quite reasonable prices, which is nice because the pretension of putting an "e" after grill normally makes any place very expensive! A very pleasant evening, and can be recommended. The only downside was a pretty awful singer,

If you're not looking for this place you'll never just stumble upon it. It's tucked behind a building right on the water. The view is beautiful. The staff is friendly and accommodating. There's always happy tropical music....sometimes a live band. The food is excellent.

We were looking for a nice place for dinner and just happened upon this gem. It is outside overlooking the wharf. There was live music and the service was very good. My wife had the lobster and I had lobster tacos. Best tacos I had ever had. There is a happy hour which we missed, its over at 6:00. Happy... More

I've been looking forward to the shellfish the farther north we go. This restaurant is part of our hotel and it's amazing! We shared the steamed mussels, they were amazing. I had the lobster bisque, I loved it. He had the crab cakes, not as good as the ones at City Tavern in Phillie, but he's had them about 6... More

I never think to go to The Port and I don't know why but I am very happy that I remembered it tonight. Met a friend for a drink and stayed for dinner which was an excellent decision on my part. The burger was excellent and the service was terrific.
