I haven't been to the Green Derby in years.....some friends went to lunch there a month ago and told us how good the food was...a big menu and good prices. So we tried it last night with three other couples. I was impressed, the food was delicious....I had fried grouper, macaroni and a huge side salad ...of course a beer... More

Have been supporting the establishment for years. Food is average drinks prices are high. Like to visit the restaurant because I like the old Nostalgia of the restaurant Average spend when we go is about $95.00 for a special on menu and a meal or sandwich off the menu. A little pricey to say the least. Owner and son are... More

OK, it was election night and not very nice weather. I walked in to get a table for 3 of us who were wrapping up a road trip. When you walk in it is confusing. The hallway ahead looks like it goes to restrooms, and the hallway to the left looks like it goes to the restaurant. That's where all... More

It was my first time at the Green Derby because we volunteered at the Hosea House. We stopped in for a quick dinner before going home. The restaurant appears to be pretty popular and a neighborhood gem. The menu is filled with comfort food dishes and even frog legs! I wanted to eat lighter so I had the blackened cod.... More

i keep giving this old resturant chances. Have had service issues at times. A little pricy for the amounts you get at times. But if you go, the hot slaw is a must. No matter what I order, I get the hot slaw.

They have grouper, cod and halibut to choose from for your sandwich. The halibut is award winning and the best in town. My husband got the fish in chips. Fabulous! It's made from cod and they make the beer batter fresh. It's like the old Arthur Treachers from "back in the day". We love this place!

Love the Derby. Was a little worried when it changed ownership but the food remains delicious and the atmosphere is the same. The haddock is out of this world. Service is great; food is great; what more can you ask for?

Wow, I can't say enough about the food and service. Every time we go I say I'm going to try something different, but I can't because the fish-n-chips are so good. It's been around for a very long time, it has a lot of history. It's always been a landmark in Newport. I feel a hundred percent confident that you'll... More

Great place to grab some real food if you are sick of the hustle and bustle of fast food. Step back into a traditional family restaurant with good comfort food.

Greated nicely. Sat in a very crammed room. Food took almost an hour to come out... Three of our meals came out, buy not my husbands... That came out 6 minutes later with an apology.... My pasta was cold and runny.... Never again.
