Located on Newport’s historic waterfront.
For over 35 years, we have provided our guests with warm hospitality, crafted beverages and ‘top-of-the catch’ seafood, including an award-winning wine list and bountiful raw bar offerings. Our indoor and outdoor seating is complemented by a lively atmosphere, panoramic sunsets and nautical views of Newport Harbor. In the warmer weather, appreciate our mahogany-planked patio floating over the water for an unmatched maritime alfresco dining experience. We welcome you to join us and discover how we create and elevate the traditions of New England seafood cookery to a whole new level of taste and enjoyment.
