    This is the place for Clam Chowder. The Filet is awesome as well comes with crispy fries! Dip the fries in the Bernaise!! The pub is quick but a bit noisy. You need a collar on your shirt in dining rm

    Delicious meal. I'm pretty sure grey sole I ordered was actually scrod or cod of some sort. It was very good nevertheless, but definitely was not grey sole.

    Amazing place, for sure going back, try the oysters, Baked brie and of course the clam chowder soup...

    The swordfish sandwich was pretty good. Cajun seasoning and blackened. If you enjoy spicy food, this will hit the spot. Comes with fries.

    The clam chowder does in deed rock! Forget legal seafood in beantown. Nice to sit out and have a margarita with the chowder. The margarita was kinda small though.

    Classic Newport. Great seafood and non seafood choices. Same prices as restaurant row wannabes. Sit in the pub side.

    The tavern is more a place for groups - much too loud for a nice dinner. But great food though!

    Good for a cup of chowder and a drink. Rowdier than most of the other spots around, but that's not bad

    The Clam Chowder is average at best (I live in Boston). The menu is small and limited, and gets even smaller in the evening. That said the chicken sandwich was pretty good.

    Too expensive. The tuna melt and fries needed more seasoning. For the prices they charge they should invest in seasonings. Would not recommend and would not go back.

    Don't go for drinks. Poor wine selection and draughts are $4.75 for a small glass. Choose Wharf Pub instead.
