“Very disappointing”
Review of Cecil's Dirty Apron - CLOSED

Visiting Newport and decided to give this dive a shot, unfortunately. We ordered the bacon wrapped chicken, it came out burnt with NO bacon. The chicken was very dry and the sauce tasted like mustard with vinegar. The chicken tacos were okay although the chicken was dry again. Don't waste your time or money. Also, the atmosphere sucked and it was freezing cold. Couldn't wait to get out of there. Oh, the waitress was VERY awkward also.

Thank Becca I

Just tried a breakfast there. It was okay - pretty much a standard omelet and fixings. Coffee was average as well. Quick service.

It's called a rag, use it. From the highchair to the "toddler books" to the table, everything was sticky and stinky. Definitely not for children...or adults.

When we walked in and sat down it took at least 5minutes to be noticed and another 5 to receive menus. The owner was out server and had the worst attitude. He acted like we were a problem and inconveniencing him. Being rude when asked if they had regular mayo. It took at least 45 minutes for our food to come out and it came one plate at a time. Then We were not asked a single time if we needed anything else and we did not see him until we hunted him down to get our tab.we were charged $1 each for small sides of ranch and more for what was supposed to be a kids plate. The bar area seemed pretty much what his focus is on and I would never go back to eat there.

I would give it 3.5 stars if that were an option. Fish and chips were good, the fish is one big piece and some might prefer smaller pieces so that there is more breading but the fish was fresh, thick and had a crisp breading, The burger is good but is smaller in diameter and tall which looks appealing but it is hard to eat. I didn't have the salad but it looked great, will try it next time. The one dessert looked pretty, a waffle with a sweet glaze, ice cream and chocolate but it was very hard to eat and we only ate the ice cream.
