I've dined in every restaurant in Newport for decades... This place is a rare Newport Gem! A Star-Sapphire! Unique combination of pub feel and reasonably priced excellent food, conversation and friendly service from a very well trained staff. The staff's wine suggestions were spot on....More

Prime rib for Philly steak sandwich was tough and overdone. Acoustics were annoyingly loud. Could not hold conversation. French fries were good though.

Its rare I will respond to a review of our restaurant, but from what my staff told me about you I wish there was a Trip Advisor review for customers. You'd get zero stars, you were rude and we will not welcome you back again.

Plenty of other places in the area where you can get better service and better food. Saying this place is mediocre is being kind. We were charged $2 for each drink with brunch even though the menu stated they were free... Not really an issue...More

Stopped here while out with friends because it seemed child friendly. We weren't wrong as they placed a high chair at the table and stowed our stroller. The waitress was very friendly and gave input when asked. As craft beer drinkers their list was comprehensive...More
