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

    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.

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

    Chowder here is their best seller...always perfect, not too thick and just the right amount of everything.

    Clam chowder is delicious! But everything else was very salty and overcooked.

    I'd skip this place if I were you. Chowder was very runny and servers were rude.

    As good as it gets... first bowl in 1989; second bowl in 2013 -- and still amazing.

    Service is amazingly slow, inaccurate and at times rude. Chowder is good, mussels are not.

    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

    Order a Dark n' Stormy (Bermudian Ginger Beer and Gosling's Dark Rum) for a taste of Newport's favorite summer drink.

    Do not come here, they always tell you there's a long wait and make you walk away, while there are lots of tables open

    A classic New England bar on the wharf. Definitely get the clam chowder.

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

    The best Bloody Mary in Newport, and arguably the best burger.

    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.

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

    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.

    Clam chowder is really good, but I've had better. Burgers are good too. They charge for soda refills, though.

    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.

    Best lobster rolls! You can only get the lobster rolls at lunch until 5:30, they aren't on the dinner menu.
