As our waitress said, "We are known for our portions" and they certainly are. Food was not high end, but it was what we expected: Great atmosphere, authentic local food, moderate prices, large portions. Wine list lacking, but this is a beer and booze town....More

We found the food here to be very good, and the location is nice since it is on the corner at the edge of Thames. Would go back here in the future.

Always love going to the Red Parrot when we visit. Newport. The restaurant has an extensive menu. The food and service are great. The restaurant and bar are quite large, so you rarely have to wait to be seated or served.

large, crowded, groups, noisy, tourists, but good for a decent meal that is large & generally satisfying. Large menu that will please anyone. Annoying that they do not take reservations...so during weekend nights or tourist season, you could be waiting 45-1 hour for a seat...

We ordered appetizers got the group These were served on a lazy Susan and were exceptional. Only complaint was the access for folks in a wheelchair- not easily accessible and very difficult to maneuver
