My husband and I came here for dinner tonight and for the life of me I cannot understand why this restaurant is getting such poor reviews.
Let me just start with WOW.. What a view! We opted to eat indoors because the sun was very hot and we wanted to be cool and comfortable. The indoor seating is surrounded by glass doors so that you can see the water from whatever table you are seated at.
As far as the food.. I mean I'm not going to say it was the best I have ever eaten, BUT it was pretty good.
For starters, we each had a cup of chowder. It was a good chowder, creamy with a hint of bacon flavor but not overpowering, the clams were the star!
I had the Lobster Mac and Cheese. The cheese sauce was very good with a lot of flavor and it had a descent amount of lobster meat in it, I only wish it had more noodles. It seemed to have more cheese sauce than pasta.
My husband had one of their specials, the Crab Stuffed Filet of Sole. He said that he enjoyed the dish. It had good flavors and a large amount of crab stuffing, he just wished the texture of the crab was more coarse instead of so minced.
It was one of the better meals we've had in Newport.
