“Good food and great views of the water”
Reviewed 4 December 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

The food and views on the back deck of the water were great. The service was lacking, but everything else made up for it.

“Seaside dining in Newport Harbor”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

Newport, Rhode Island boasts many fine restaurants, but the Mooring offers wonderful cuisine with a spectacular view of the harbor and the surrounding sights. The restaurant is decorated in a nautical theme with outside dining available when weather permits. The menu has numerous selections not just for fish lovers, but also for diners who prefer meat or vegetarian choices. The chef will accommodate dietary restrictions very willingly. Start with the bag of doughnuts, one of their signature selections. Deep fried shellfish that are so decadent! The fish and chips are ample and tasty. The specials are always a sure hit. Side dishes are well prepared and the wine list is very reasonable. Servers are knowledgeable and courteous. We were celebrating a birthday, and our server brought us a fabulous chocolate dessert on the house. The location of the restaurant is ideal, right next to Bannister's Wharf. Parking is available onsite.
