Foursquare Tips

  • What could be better than pasta and seafood? A local favorite tucked away on Thames Street with a bustling environment thats perfect for a feast before hitting the bars.
  • The wood grilled Lobster is pretty good here .
  • The raw bar is TO DIE FORFreshest shrimp I've ever had. They serve them fresh every day. Cyprian, the bartender, is the best. They don't have a happy hour, but he'll make it a happy hour.
  • Our favorite seafood restaurant in Newport. Everything was delicious especially the scallops.
  • If you have a large party try the Lobster Fra Diavolo! It says it serves 2 but it can accommodate up to 4.
  • Salmon bad mussels are so good! And this warm chocolate cake really hit the spot
  • Get the Sicilian little necks! To die for :)
  • Cash only. No reservations. Don't be caught off guard.
  • Lobster for 2 delicious! Extremely fresh seafood.
  • Live Greg said- cash or check only! Strange this day in age
  • There were over 12 scallops in my order of Scallops Marsala! Delish!!
  • The oyster shot with beer is a maze ing!!
  • Calamari is delicious!
  • Cash or check only. No credit cards. Very lively. Very fresh seafood. Menu changes daily, written on a blackboard.
  • Good oyster bar. My food reviews about this place are mixed. Some are good, others are ok or average, nothing in particular to point out, other than the oysters. Fresh Fish on the grill is decent.
