Located here on America's Cup Avenue is this little bbq place. We stopped by on a hot summer day to have a few drinks and just relax after so much exploring and walking.
We didn't order any food, but the place was packed with dinners and many locals hanging out the bar.
It's a great place to relax, catch your breath and enjoy a few brews.
UPDATE - This is a seasonal/summer restaurant which operates May-Sept)
I met several locals in Newport and when I asked where I needed to go to eat the place mentioned most often was the Smoke House Café. This is where the locals go for the best slow-cooked BBQ. It is definitely not fancy but if you are looking for great food, good service and a nice bar, check this place out. Closes in the winter but reopens in the spring.
Favorite Dish Baby Back Ribs were great!
