When the weather allows outdoor seating, this is the place to go for after-work happy hours (locals), and a lovely spot for tourists. Even sitting inside, there are terrific water views. Service is excellent, with friendly wait staff. Menu has variety, but I'd rate the...More

This is an attractive seafood restaurant on the drive to Newport. The setting is nice, and for lunch we had mussels with fries and fish and chips. Both meals were excellent, better than expected for sure with the fish and chips. We had a lovely...More

Nice menu, chose the surf & turf which was very good. Restaurant not too large, but roomy enough so that you are not listening to your neighbors conversation. Waitress "JoJo" was a pleasure - brought drinks & food expediently. Dined there on Saturday night, music...More

Very good food, well presented in a nice atmosphere. A little pricey so may best serve as a place to come for special occasions. Beautiful in the summer when the deck which overlooks the ocean is open

Location is beautiful and thats what you pay for. Our service was slow considering it wasn't all that crowded when we were there. Food was good but not spectacular. A bit pricey for what we got.
