We stopped into this pub for dinner on a quiet Sunday night. We enjoyed excellent service and a great dinner. Both of us had the salmon special, which was cooked perfectly and tasted great. They also offer a nice selection of beer. It felt like a real pub. We would definitely stop in again.

We went twice during our last visit to Newport. The first night was just me & my husband - service was great, food fantastic. Brought the family back the next night. The waitress wasn’t sure if she could seat the 6 of us despite multiple booths open. We’re seated & no menus til we finally caught her eye 30+ minutes later. Then it was another 45 minute wait for the food - never once did she check back to see if we needed more drinks or to update us on our order. (They were Not packed). At the end of the night we were told they add an automatic 20% tip to parties of 6 or more. Really! Rarely do we see a tip added for parties of 6 & this service was so bad it didn’t deserve more than 15%.
Was very disappointed with the difference between the 2 nights & probably would have said something if we didn’t have the kids (ages 9 & 7) and didn’t have some time constraints.

Authentic Irish Pub with good food. The service was excellent and the music served up by Grace Morrison and friends was outstanding. Highly recommended.

This Irish Pub right down town was a wonderful stop for lunch. The rueuben was large and tasty and the burgers were wonderful. The home .made French fries were terrific. The service and atmosphere were very nice.
GREAT LUNCH STOP

We had an early supper here and enjoyed it greatly. We had arrived in Newport later than expected because of traffic in Boston, so had missed lunch and opted for an early supper. The place was not crowded and we had a choice of seating. I had the Irish mixed grill and was very pleased. A nice assortment of typical Irish food. As a beer drinker, I also enjoyed their nice selection of draft beers. We will definitely be back on our return trip to Newport.
