A must place to eat in Newport! The scallop chowder is awesome. The wait staff is top notch and the view is great

Enjoyed a great dinner and had a cozy table by the fireplace! Highly recommend the "uptown salad" which has shrimp, lobster, etc. Perfect Fall evening!

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.
