Where to Eat Dinner In (And Around) Newport, Rhode Island
Newport, Rhode Island is known for their seafood and variety of restaurants, so choosing a few places to have dinner during a recent vacation wasn’t an easy task. We read reviews online and took recommendations from friends and locals and came up with a list. Below are some places to eat dinner in (and around) Newport, Rhode Island.
The Mooring Seafood Kitchen & Bar
This was the best meal of my trip. We somehow got a prime table outdoors on their deck with a nice view of the boats on the pier. Although it was hot outside, they had fans that seemed to really help, so I didn’t mind. The staff and service were good and the place was very busy – so make sure you make reservations. For starters, we had some rolls (they were SO good and came in a little brown bag) and James had the Mooring Caesar Salad. For our main dishes, I got the Half Roasted Chicken and James got the Atlantic Salmon. Both were really good, and the chicken portions were huge. My favorite part was the whipped yukon gold potatoes.
We did, however, not get seated until about 15 minutes after our reservation time. The greeters were not doing a great job seating people, giving updates, or keeping track of… anything. But our waitress herself was amazing and made up for it.
I love Newport! It’s been years since I’ve been and for sure want to go back. I’ll keep these places in mind.
I definitely want to go back next summer with our son!
I’m sure they are all great places. The food looks so delish. You look pretty!
