“If you want to experience a true New England seafood restaurant this iOS it!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 via mobile

We visited Newport to attend a wedding and upon our arrival we were searching for a real seafood restaurant . This is it! Walking up to the building that sits over the water you may think that you want at restaurant a little more upscale. Don't let this fool you! The chowder is the best it town. Sit at the raw bar and talk to the attendant. We asked what was good and he suggested the chowder along with the clams served in a brown bread stuffing and baked in the shell. Pour a little if the chowder over it and you will want more!

“Definitely a place to eat!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

On our first meal in Newport as we were getting the lay of the land, we came upon The Lobster Bar. We were so pleased with the freshness of the fried clams, which were some of the best we have ever had. The lobster roll was delicious too, as we're the libations. Our waitress was attentive, without being a pest. We did not feel rushed.
We sat out on the deck, overlooking the Marina on a beautiful summer day - it doesn't get any better than this!

“Funky Flavor's”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

We have enjoyed drinks on the dock before, this time we choose to have lunch. Service was top notch unfortunately I can say the same for the food. We both had a lobster roll, his hot with herbs and butter, mine traditional with a light mayo. Mine was horrible, all I could taste was dead seafood, fish or a funky fishy taste, not sweet as it should be. My mouth had a lingering taste for hours.

They did a great job of serving mine gluten free, no bun and salad on the side.

We would not return.

“Great food and views”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

This place is right on the dock, and has a fish market that's been there for many years. It's a great atmosphere for a seafood restaurant, there's a big bar, lots of outdoor seating, and pretty much all of their tables have a nice view given that it's really right on the dock. The food is excellent, last time we were there we split the lobster bisque and lobster fritters for lunch and that was plenty for the two of us. The lobster bisque has tons of huge chunks of lobster meat, I've never seen anything like it. This place is expensive, but it's really good and you can't beat the location. The service was excellent too.

“Best Hot Lobster Roll Ever!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

If you're looking for the best hot lobster roll of your life, go here!!!

My friend and I shared the steamers, and then each had a hot lobster roll, as well as imbibing it the delicious Dark & Stormy (ginger beer with rum) - the weather outside made it very appropriate to be drinking a Dark & Stormy but my belly was full of sunshine by the time we left! One of the most satisfying meals of my life.

Friendly staff who let us chill there as long as we wanted to without bothering us to leave.

Love this place!!!!!!!
