We sat at the bar of this old, historical Newport landmark. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the food. Try the chowder. Friendly wait staff, efficient. We'll revisit.

Words cannot express just how amazing this restaurant is. The whole staff is amazing, the food is great, the atmosphere is out of this world. I'm a Newport local and I'm always reminded just how great this town is every time I go to Clarke Cooke House. It's very nautical, very preppy, very high class - basically a yacht club.... More

We stopped by for a pre-dinner drink and were introduced to Rick. Could not have had a better time. He made us fantastic cocktails, including a custom cinder and spiced rum that took care of any chill we had from the cold fall day.

I was in town with several coworkers and we stopped here for lunch. While the food was pretty good, the experience we had was unacceptable! Thus the reason for only 1 star. We were seated at the first table in the restaurant right by the waiting area. There is a couch, coffee table, and chair in the waiting area next... More

The atmosphere was nice. The food was good but not the best. Our waiter seemed not in good spirits. He was a little dour but the service was good. All in all, for the price I just couldn't give it more than an average rating.

We had lunch at the Cooke House yesterday on arrival to Newport for a brief vacation. The food was ok. We got a burger and a salad with sea scallops. Neither plate was interesting nor inspiring. As I looked around I thought that it looked as if they have not done one bit of improving or updating to the property... More

We were in Newport for the day and decided to stop at The Clarke Cooke House for lunch. Food was tasty and it was a nice ambiance. $130 for 4 of us with tip, no alcohol. Definitely a nice seafood spot!

First time I've been to Clarke Cooke House, it was for a 70th Birthday party for a friend and the meal and service we had was beyond good. I would would highly recommend CCH to anyone for a special meal. The atmosphere is just great. If your looking for a special place to dine this is it.

an excellent lunch as always. I enjoy a meal at the Clark Cooke house when ever visiting newport which is sadly only once a year or so but have been a customer for almost 40 years now. The food is great and the atmosphere very special.

After a negative experience next door with the Black Pearl Restaurant (upon which I cancelled my takeout order), I walked immediately next door to the Clarke Cook House; a cozy, colonial-style restaurant and bar. The waitstaff was very pleasant, as I explained my negative experience next door. I placed my order and enjoyed the ambiance while I waited. I would... More
