Great spot on the water at Bowen’s wharf. My husband and I came here for dinner. Food and service were very good and the portions were generous. Had the New England clam chowder and fish tacos - very yummy. Would recommend it!

The Marriott is awesome and newly renovated. But the Newport Harbor Hotel and Marina is very close to the restaurants and is also nice and affordable.
