This restaurant is great if your really looking for a Rhode Island setting. The view is amazing, and if you go at sunset its beautiful! I really like the clam chowder, it's nice and creamy! I have to say, I loved every thing that i ordered! I got the lobster, clam chowder, and the fries. This might sound weird but... More

I have been here many times, and the quality of ambiance beats that of the food. After having lunch here about a month ago, I realized I had left my sunglasses behind. I called them and Sierra the hostess told me she had the glasses and that she would place them in lost and found. I stated I would return... More

The Cod strips appetizer was scrumptious. Great bloody Mary's as well. Casual, but nice ambience. The service was prompt and excellent.

Pasta was amazing and fun atmosphere. Service was upbeat and pasta was perfect! My husband had the penne vodka and I had the broken noodle. Yummy and dessert ended the perfect meal!

Arriving a little early for our reservation for 8:15, we were told it would be a few minutes. The restaurant is so large with a huge outdoor seating area on the water, that both the indoor and outdoor dining areas require separate reservations and have different menus! The owner, who was running around making sure the guests were happy, even... More

On a hot and steamy night in Newport, we arrived at this big lively spot at the end of Waites Wharf way down on Lower Thames Street. We were glad to have made dinner reservations for inside the restaurant, where the a/c was cranked way up. The restaurant has a huge deck/bar/dining area outside (where the Patriots' The Gronk had...

We were not sure what we would find but the Deck now scan hidden gem. On the wharf overlooking the harbor. We ate on the outside deck. Do not use opentable if you want to sit there. You will be seated inside. There was good live music. The food was excellent. I had swordfish and the chef asked if I... More

We wanted to stop in for a drink and be on the water. We ordered drinks and they were served in plastic cups, including a draft beer. Not impressed by that. The time we visited was mid-afternoon so we viewed the menu hoping to find some interesting appetizers - they had very basic apps to choose from, nothing exciting at... More

Last summer I came here for a group dinner. I don't know if our waiter was new, but it's safe to say he was overwhelmed. We waited forever for our drinks, and then I had a food allergy and they apparently couldn't accommodate anything on the menu for a dairy free dinner. I left last summer feeling very upset and...
