I am allergic to shellfish, so trying to find a restaurant by the water in Newport that offered an alternative to seafood other than the usual chicken breast was proving to be difficult. My husband and I must have checked out a dozen or so...More

I have never encountered such a rude owner devoid of any customer service skills. He came over to our table and asked about a dish we sent back. He shows up doesn't say who he is and just states what do we want here in...More

The food was great, people around me seemed to love the cocktails. The wine by the glass list was just ok. Service was excellent, would definitely return.

Parking can be tricky - so allow a few extra minutes. Bowens Wharf has a small paid lot, there is another paid lot close by in front of the Mooring restaurant or street parking (meters take credit cards)
