If I were to go back to The Lobster Bar, it would be for the location and the views. The atmosphere almost makes me rate this restaurant a 4/5. But the food is just okay. We had a variety of appetizers to share: lobster quesadilla, lobster fritters, mussels, oysters, calamari. None of them were outstanding. And none were lower than $12. Newport can be an expensive area, but I would prefer higher quality food for my $.

We were looking for a great place to share a lobster for a special birthday celebration! We found it! Even though the evening was a bit misty we had a great night on the deck, a huge 3lb lobster...awesome New England Clam Chowder and fabulous Lobster Bisque! Perfect example of what we were looking for in New England! And super fun to just sit on the water and enjoy!

The staff was really sweet and nice too. Perfect evening!

Stopped here after a long day of exploring Newport. The wait wasn't too bad, but it took a while for someone to take our food and drink order. The bus boys were quick to take things away even before we were finished. We felt a little rushed because of that.

The food was great.

Every year when we vacation in Newport we go out of our way to make it down to Bowens Warf to grab a Lobster Dinner at Aquideck Lobster Company. We were seated outside on the outside deck overlooking the Harbor which is a wonderful location. The Service was great and the Lobster Dinner was first rate. We will be back next year. Great Job!!!

It is a fish market which did not bother us because it was fun to look at all the live lobsters. The food is just average, but pricey. But you expect that from such a touristy area. Had the fish and chips. The portion was a good size but very greasy. My dad had the lobster roll and it was fine. Should had better seasoning. The clam chowder was watery but tasty. And the fried calamari was good in portion but again greasy. We came here because it was right next to Sightsailing and the reviews overall was that it was decent. But, I think every place is the same in price and taste. But, it was nice to sit outside right by the water. We got there around noon so it was not as crowded and got seated right away. Any later and it would have been difficult to get a table. If you want a quick less expensive no frills meal, there was a stand around the way right next to Ben and Jerry's ice cream shop that sold hot dogs and bowl of clam chowder that looked really delicious.
