  • Gaslamp Grille

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Newport Restaurants

    This is a really nice restaurant here in Newport, the food and service are quite good, but be careful if you think you'll enjoy a quite dinner especially if you happen to be here on a Saturday night past 10:00 pm. There is a band that starts playing at that time and it can get quite loud and you'll find yourself shouting at your party over the...

    We were looking for a place where we could grab a late night meal and a few drinks within close proximity to our hotel and we happen to come across this place. You enter from a corner door which is directly in the bar area with the dinning area just behind in a separate room. The restaurant was empty aside from us and another table but the bar was...

    Newport Restaurants

    Ferni and I needed something light in our tummies after touring The Elms and decided to stop at Griswold Tavern for a drink and a quick bit to eat. The bar/restaurant/pub is a casual place, although a bit dark, it was quite welcoming with wood paneling and hardwood floors. I'm glad we decided to stop by for a quick bite and a drink. The menu has...

  • Wharf Pub & Restaurant

    Newport Restaurants

    Our first visit here was after experiencing dissapointment at the food selection of the Food Festival we wandered into the Wharf Pub. We had a seat at the bar area. There was plenty of room in the dining room but we decided to relax and hang at the bar instead. I orderd a Magner's and Liz had a glass of Sauvignon Blanc. We were having a good time...

    Newport Restaurants

    This is always a nice place to grab a drink and a snack at the bar or enjoy a meal. Yesterday's is located in Washington Square which makes it rather easy to walk to from most of the area hotels and very close to shopping on Thames.

    We've been here a few times and during this particular trip, we had lunch one day and then Sunday Brunch the following morning as it was pouring outside and we weren't in the mood to go looking for another place to eat.

    Newport Restaurants

    Newport has many places to eat. We decided to stop here during our visit in July 2005 and cool ourselves off in the air conditioned dining area. The service was friendly, and the food was good, but nothing special. This is a popular three-story restaurant with an airy feel to it. There is a huge menu selection with frozen specialty drinks and of...

  • Black Pearl

    4 out of 5 stars

    Newport Restaurants

    This restaurant has three dining rooms: the classic Commodore's Room, the Tavern, and the Waterside Patio. This review is about the Tavern, which tries hard, and succeeds, to create an old-time New England atmosphere. It's very nautical and dark, and is an authentic sailor's tavern. It closes from January 3rd to February 12th. The clam chowder is...

  • Puerini's Ristorante

    2.5 out of 5 stars

    Newport Restaurants

    Puerini's is a smaller restaurant, with two floors and room for outdoor dining. The restaurant isn't big on decorations or ambience, but the service and food more than makes up for that. Personally, I go to restaurants for good food, not to look at what's hanging on the walls. The restaurant makes its own pasta, which was delicious. The menu is...

  • Vincent's on the Pier

    Newport Restaurants

    We were walking along the waterfront and decided that our hunger was getting the best of us, so we stopped at the closest place, which happened to be Vincent's on the Pier. The atmosphere is fairly nice, although we wanted to sit on the outdoor deck and were unable to because of a private party. We ended up at a table right by the hostess stand...

    This is your typical nice hotel restaurant and bar although I hear great things about their yet unsampled by me brunch. I really enjoyed hanging out here that Friday evening because they had both the Red Sox and the Yankees games on. The service wasn't bad nor was it great. And two of the three desserts I've had here were great. OMFG in the bad...

    The Rhode Island Quahog Company has become a must for every trip we take to Newport.

As we entered we were immediately seated in a booth and handed...

  • Scales and Shells

    Newport Restaurants

    Suggested by the hotel concierge, this was an amazing seafood experience. The ambience is nice but VERY crowded, not suitable for a romantic dinner! Waiters run all the time and have to shout to let you understan the menu, which is also desplayed on a black board. Nevertheless, she misunderstood our order because of the noise. Anyway everything we...

    While I was walking around Newport trying to decide where to explore next, I came across this "pizza" place.

  • Oysters raised here

    This is just a shack and a deck, but the seafood is fresh and mostly raised or caught locally. How local? The oyster bed is just a mile away from the restaurant. They do give tours.You check in, then have a few drinks with oysters while you wait for your table and food. The ambiance is very simple, but the food is the story. I loved my lobster...

  • A Watch Hill Institution

    Right on Bay St. in downtown Watch Hill you will find the Olympia Tea Room. Open since 1916 there is quite a tale attached to its history, which I neglected to memorize from the menu!

  • Good food in a relaxed atmosphere

    Ask to be seated in the bar. It's much less formal and, if you want something smaller just ask for the "tavern menu" as they won't give it to you unless you do. We ordered from both..Shelter Harbor Inn is in Westerly, RI is also a B&B. I didn't see the rooms, but the public spaces were very charming..Ate dinner in the bar a week ago, just before...

  • I got my lobster roll!

    I'm afraid I was rather insistent about needing a lobster roll. So on our day trip to Newport we headed for The Black Pearl, only to get caught in one way streets and ended up here. It was fine!No idea what anyone else had. I only had eyes for my lobster. It was a very traditional one with just mayo and celery and a bit of salt & pepper. I'm not...

  • Sundowner Snacks

    Our hosts had translated the African safari, "sundowners" tradition to the middle of Ninigret Pond. They have the packing for this event down to a science. These scrumptious shrimp, along with some excellent cheese were our hors d'oeuvres. We threw the anchor over on a sandbar and enjoyed the end of the day. Great fun! It's the shrimp.

  • Real RI Chowder and Clam Fritters

    This restaurant is not fancy, but the food is good and the staff is nice, so who cares? They have the clear clam chowder that is distinctly Rhode Island, but that you can't get everywhere in the state. It's yummy. They also have great clam fritters (yes, I said fritters, that's what they are!) though lots of places in RI now call them clam CAKES....

  • Lobster Rolls!

    Christies is the oldest waterfront restaurant in Newport. It's in the center of town, surrounded by water and many boats.

  • Pricey, but sooooo good!

    Great food and perfect location in Providence, right on the Riverwalk and next to Waterplace Park. Location, atmosphere, and friendly staff. It's expensive, but worth it for a special occasion.

    I wish I could remember the exact name of this nice restuarant where we ate, in the area of Westerly in Rhode Island. I think it was called The Family Diner, or something like that. I was not going to post any infoprmation on it since I can't remember the name, but thought I would anyway since the food was very good. We had just driven through the...

    George's of Galilee is a dining institution on the channel used by the Block Island ferries. You can read its story if you click on the second picture to enlarge it. You can do Take-Out, or eat upstairs, either inside or out on the porch. The porch is much more fun as you can see the boat action in the channel. Their fish and chips are superb,...

  • Gourmet comfort in Olde European style

    This is the most quaint, lovely, romantic, relaxed coffehouse you may ever set foot into. First, it has a homey style to it with a vintage, European feel. The furniture is mostly antique and the setting is intimate. The service is very personal and relaxed. For as upscale as it is it is a very relaxed and casual place. Just steps away from the...

  • Sushi to drool for

    Unlike other traditional Japanese sushi restaurants, this is a Korean restaurant, family owned and operated. They pay close attention to details and owner Jim and his sushi chefs whip up plates full of artistic expression that taste as beautiful as they look. This is a very non-traditional sushi restaurant and I love it because of that. They have a...

The pasta is very good as...

  • On the grill ...

    Any home-cooked meal in Rhode Island is likely to include seafood. In this case scallops wrapped in bacon were headed to the grill, along with some steak and portabella mushrooms. They were EXCELLENT! It would be hard to choose - but I'll vote for the scallops ;)

  • Where the local patrons dine on RI...

    This Restaurant is located right on a dock where one can see boats coming in with their daily catches. One can hear the New England accents of the patrons. The seafood is prepared modestly but delicious. Try the 1 1/2 lb Lobster as well as huge scallops and oysters.
