We ate here as Marriott hotel guests. Breakfast buffet. Very expansive with options for individually cooked omelets, waffles, and eggs. Great choices of fresh fruits, bagels, muffins and cereals. Bacon and eggs on the buffet were excellent. Service was prompt and coffee and milk were part of the buffet. If you awaken hungry, this is the place to be. The... More

NIce restaurant. Not a lot to choose from but the hamburger was good, salad was excellent. A little pricey for what you get but nice setting harbor side in the Newport Marriott.

I went to Newport with my twin sister and mom to have a local kinda low key birthday. Initially we went over to the Brick Alley Pub for dinner but they had a 30 minute wait and we were doing a ghost tour at 8. The tour meeting place was right outside the restaurant at the Marriott so we figured... More

I went alone to this restaurant as it was in my hotel, expecting it would be just okay. I was really in for a surprise ... The Roasted Broccoli appetizer with prosciutto, shaved parmesan and golden raisins was amazing. I have tried to duplicate it several times since my return.

We had great views, the food was tasty. The waffles and omelettes were made to order by an energetic chef! I wish i didnt have to say anything negative, but the waitress wasnt attentive at all. We might as well have served ourselves.
