This is one of my top two picks in the city for those looking for consistently fresh seafood in a relaxed yet trendy ambiance that is truly Newport.
AAA Inspector Notes
Boasting the largest raw bar in Newport, this is the place for oyster and clam connoisseurs. This is a modern, yet classic, take on your typical seafood restaurant. An updated, seasonal selection of New England seafood is served by a friendly waitstaff. Non-seafood fans will love the crisped-skin, pan-roasted chicken with rosemary roasted fingerling potatoes. The upstairs patio overlooking the bustling harbor and Brick Market district makes it one of the city's most popular hangouts. The trendy, nautical vibe with it's shiplap walls, wood beam ceiling, and salvaged boat names on it's walls make for great conversation starters. The bustling lower level bar is also a great place to enjoy a hand-crafted cocktail.
