The menu selections are innumerable and a bit confusing, so it's no wonder that selections can be hit or miss. We started off with some clam chowder and chili, both of which were fine examples of those standards. The lobster salad roll had plentiful lobster...More

I think this place is a gem mostly because it is Newport yet they are so reasonably priced. They also have a salad bar that I love. My tip is to arrive earlier than typical lunch and dinner times otherwise the wait gets very long!!!

I would say yes! They have a large room on the back and rooms upstairs as well. I would request the back one if they can accommodate you as it would be easier access to salad bar and people in your party won't have to take... More

I do not think so. I suggest you call to check. Weekends are pretty crazy but if you are a couple or small party you can sit at the bar and order from the regular menu.
