A word from Christie's
Christie's transforms eating-out into a fun, hip and playful modern experience, all at moderate prices and always with great value. From the swing seating, to the outdoor dining, to the Neptune chairs and 20 person communal table, there is a fun spot for everyone to eat, drink and lounge. Christie's serves a menu of traditional New England coastal fare, including our Fried Oyster Po'Boy, Stuffies, Baja Fish Tacos, and lighter options such as our Beet Salad or Heirloom Tomoato Salad. Specialty cocktails, like our gin-based Salty Italian Hound, pair well with any dish and our Maker's Mark Adult Root Beer Float is the perfect way to finish an evening.

Christie's reviews from OpenTable diners
  • A little disappointed.

    This restaurant, for Memorial Day week was pretty empty. Had been there many years ago and was a little disappointed at this visit. Wouldn't be my first choice next time when in Newport.

    Christie's was a last minute find on a Saturday night in Newport. Excellent cocktails, comfort food on the menu, and a relaxed style makes me look forward to visiting again when we are in Newport for my son's wedding.

    Dined on 11/8/2012
    We had a party of 9 guests, we were at the community table, and it was a thursday night durng restaurant week. We were surprised it was rather empty. That didn't bother us, we still had a great time, and we were there for a few hours. The only complaint was it was a little hard to find. The skirt steak was better than filet mignon I had elsewhere, incredibly tender and flavorful!

    The food is good, but the decor and atmosphere are much more suitable for groups of 20-somethings than an older crowd. Even though it was mostly empty on Friday night of a holiday weekend, we felt somewhat out of place.

    Christie's was AWESOME! I found this restaurant on Open Table and made a reservation solely based on the reviews for a bachelorette party and am glad I did. The food was great (and so were the prices!) and the sangria was delicious. A fun spot for girls' night out and I would look to go back next time I'm in Newport no matter the occasion!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/4/2012
    Christie's was simply OK. The food was fair at best and our table of 6 never really was impressed with the overall service, partly because it was quiet when we were there, the time lapses between visits was disappointing. Should you go, have the salmon, which is what I did eat and was delicious. Stay away from the chowder, unless you like it more soupy versus thick and creamy. For the price of the meals, I was hoping for better quality for all the dishes served. A 3 out of 5 stars is an accurate review of our experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 7/5/2012
    We ate outside but a quick look inside revealed a well thought out decor. Sadly it was the only thing thought out. They seemed to have designed a graphic hip menu and then said "How do we make this stuff?" I enjoy fish tacos but never seen them hard shell (an observation overheard from another diner as well) soft tortilla better choice.. Deviled eggs looked delish, but 3 half eggs? Who ate the 4th half? They served a scalding hot clam-less chowder and while the idea of serving on boards instead of plates is somewhat novel,they should spend more effort on improving the product instead of the presentation. Staff seemed inexperienced and overwhelmed but sincere in their efforts to be of service. Cocktails were very well done.

    Had not been to Christie's in years....now I remember why! We ordered cheese burgers,it was the 4th of July after all .Only problem is that they don't have cheese! They did not run out they just don't offer it. The also brought plenty of tap water to the tables in pretty bottles ,which was fantastic as it was an extremely hot day and the corner we were in had no fan or breeze.When the bill arrived we were surprised there was a charge for tap water! It was not mentioned by our server or on the menu!

    The latest changes to Christie's are a huge disappointment. Southern style Menu is very limited & not inspired. Worse than being boring, execution is middling to poor. Grilled Lamb Ribs ($20) were fatty and not particularly tasty, and sit sadly on the plate (side orders cost $4 or $6 additional)

    Dined on 9/6/2011
    The "new" Christies - in the space formerly occupied by "The Cheeky Monkey" in Newport - has a good menu and retro-chic / avant-garde decor. I am a regular diner there every time I am in town. This time I was SLIGHTLY disappointed by the service - I felt the wine portions were small and the special request (no fries) on one dinner was not handled as well as it might be - but these are MINOR quibbles in a fun place, with good food, reasonable prices.

    weird evening due to hurricane. We arrived and other than a wedding party at the bar, were the only customers there. They said it was ok but told us of a mandatory evacuation by midnight. Then, as appetizers came, they told us they needed to close as soon as we were done with dinner....so weird night but not due to anyone's fault. Just an anxious bunch of folks trying to prepare for hurricane and prepare their restaurant. We like this place which is why we come back....

    We had a late reservation not knowing that the place turned into a dance club. As we were trying to eat dinner, people were dancing around our table. It was hard to talk but it was still an okay experience for a young 30's crowd. Food was good, they were 45 minutes late seating us even with a reservation.

    It was a cute place, but we were there rather late on a Saturday, so the bar scene was hopping and kind of overtaking the dining areas. It was quite loud and we ended up sitting outside so we could hear each other. The food was not as good as expected, especially with their burger being ranked one of the top 10 in New England.

    We were lucky enough to dine at Christie's of Newport, RI on a night they had two great specials: The Newport Martini and the Fish Tacos. The decor was interesting and the service was prompt. The only negative is the limited menu. The calamari appetizer was notably excellent, but the rest of the menu was a bit lacking.
