Fantastic meal. The pan roasted cod was the best I've ever had. Its served in a broth that makes the dish.

We stumbled upon this restaurant on our walk into Newport, the hostess was just getting set up outside and she greated us with a smile and hello as we passed by. We took note of the place and later in the day, decided to go back to it and have dinner. So glad we did! There was live music, the decor was pleasant, our server was efficient and polite and the $21 prix fixe menu was a nice surprise, it was exactly what we would have ordered: a salad, salmon entree, and a glass of wine or beer. We hope to dine here again soon.

Beautiful venue, great food (highly recommend the grilled shrimp dish), great live music, but questionable waitresses and bartender. The bartender was visibly drunk and kept going in the back room with a waitress in plain sight. That aside, mostly good service and we'll be back next time we vacation just hope the staff improves.

My husband and I just spent two nights in Newport, RI. Our first night we happened u[pm Jo's American Bistro. We had driven from NYC. It was late and we were happy that they were willing to take us at 9:30PM. We had a great meal. I had the lobster roll and my husband had the fish 'n chips. For dessert, we split a zabiglione with berries. All great. The second night, we considered eating elsewhere, but then decided to return to Jo's. That night, I had the grilled pork with sweet potatoes and bacon and my husband had the seared cod. Once again, we had a great meal. The service was unfailingly friendly and efficient. I definitely recommend.

I had an excellent lobster roll, they served it on really superior gluten free bread, french fries and cole slaw. Friendly staff, inviting atmosphere and menu has great variety.
