This review is done by someone who has lived in Newport for many years and has dined in the majority of restaurants in Newport and the surrounding towns. The menu has quite a few options from burgers to seafood and steak entrees. The atmosphere is more like a bar than a restaurant. If you choose to dine later in the evening the restaurant has a band starting around 9 to 10pm. I have eaten here a few times and I would suggest not choosing the steak or seafood options as they tend to be poorly cooked and well done. The scallop and seafood dishes tend to be well done on more than one visit to the restaurant, and needed to be cooked again. The prices are typical for Newport (entrees $20 to $30 dollars) and I do not have a problem paying for properly cooked and well presented food but the chefs have failed on more than one visit. Another review stated that they have the best chowder ever, and I have had chowder throughout New England and I must disagree. Service by the wait staff is also poor, however I have found that dining at bar tends to have above average service. This restaurant fails from food quality, price, and especially ambience and I would recommend you dine elsewhere in Newport, unless you are looking for a burger and a drink at the bar.
