The restaurant was extremely busy when we arrived but that did not affect the service one bit. Our waiter was attentive, the food was excellent and the restaurant is a well run operation. The atmosphere is casual and super friendly. If you don't like noice I would recommend that you go at a time when it is not busy.

6 of us went here for dinner on a Thursday night. Apps are 1/2 price before 6pm. We had wings, meatballs, and calamari to start. The calamari comes with sweet and sour sauce - different and DELICIOUS! Everyone enjoyed their meal. I had the Cuban sandwich, very good! Our server was so friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. Had a... More

We went here for dinner based on a recommendation. Seated immediately, but in the bar area which was VERY noisy (I had to turn off my hearing aids, it was so loud there). I almost asked to be moved to the other side of the restaurant, away from the bar, but I didn't. The service and the food were very... More

My husband and Stopped in for what we hoped would be happy hour. Unfortunately, we got delayed and missed it by 15 minutes so decided to have a full blown dinner. First let me say that this is the first place in Newport where my husband got a "large" glass for his favorite cocktail and it was a couple dollars... More

We went to Newport not knowing it was Restaurant Week. The Tavern was a perfect stop... You have to try the Calamari appetizer--absolutely delicious.. not deeply fried --- was in a sweet and sour sauce and the calamari were very large rings and extremely moist ...

Nice local restaurant on broadway, a sports bar updated with exposed brick. I ordered a chicken dish with cous cous fresh vegetables. I enjoyed it along with a cup of chicken noodle soup. My meal was excellent but expensive. My wife ordered a chefs salad which did not have ham or cheese in it. She's ask for honey mustard dressing... More

Ordered clam chowder, a fig and goat cheese pizza, and the arugula salad. All were very good and we had no complaints. Pricing was reasonable for the area, service was very good, and our orders were fast and accurate. Nice little spot for lunch off the busy main area. Would recommend.
