Located in the Broadway restaurant district. You will feel at home served in a cosy environment by friendly and knowledgeable staff. If you are fan of whiskey you will not find a better selection in Newport. If you are visiting Newport do walk the extra distance to Malt and the other restaurants in the area, you will not be dissapointed

I savored a 100% satisfying dining experience at Malt. First off, we were warmly welcomed by the hostess and server. The owners, Chelynn and Tom, are often at Malt and will add to your welcome. My husband ordered the Malt hamburger, which he rated the best in the Newport Burger Bender contest. I had a few bites. The absolutely BEST... More

I have been here several times and never had even a mediocre experience. The food is always excellent as well as the service. I hardly ever drink beer at this type of restaurant but always order one here. If they have Shipyard Gingerbread on tap, I highly recommend it. Also, get the shrimp tacos, as they are incredible, and this... More

Malt was 5 minutes walk from the Beech Tree Inn and we went for dinner. The selection of single malt Scotch whisky is impressive and they have some aged whiskies you don't often get. We had a burger with our scotch and it was very nicely done and tasty.

We were a large party of eight this evening and had a wonderful meal and great service at Malt. We enjoyed a few small plates, potato croquets, Thai shrimp tacos, toasted gnocchi were a few of our favorites. The drink menu was extensive. Nice atmosphere. Recommended for couples and family

Rarely can a restaurant keep up with their service and food quality during restaurant week! But Malt delivered with both good service and great food! Impressive and we will be back to explore the rest of the menu and the bar area which both looked very appealing!!!

We had a nice family meal here. All of the food was very good, as was the service. It is a bit crowded a noisy. Hamburgers were cooked to perfection just how each person asked for them.

Decided to check out Malt because it was up on Broadway and away from the more "touristy" Spots. We went on Columbus Day just after competing the Cliff Walk and got there just as the kitchen opened. Donald; our waiter. was quick to make suggestions for drinks. I had a Firestone Luponic and my wife had a Mojito which she... More

In Newport, obviously, but looking to get away from the noise an stress of the harbour area then the restaurants on Broadway may be the solution. Recommended to us by a local was MALT and we can only but endorse this recommendation. The food, service and atmosphere were excellent. The menu choice vary dependant on the season but for us...
