Excellent spot. We arrived early hoping to be seated before our reservation time of 7:30. The restaurant was extremely busy so we had to wait but were seated very shortly after our reservation time. Food was excellent and our waiter who was extremely busy but was very attentive. Would definitely recommend to others. Would love to go back when you could eat outside. Great outdoor seating and the view is awesome.

What a wonderful brunch at such a low price in such a pleasant surrounding! This cannot be beat. They serve excellent Bloody Marys. It is good for couples or groups. It was fun to walk down to the beach afterwards.

Primavera was Primavera!
The pasta primavera was excellent - the vegetables perfectly cooked and the sauce oh-so-creamy!

Nothing to say.... it's very good. Monday - Thursday Early bird special is so great. $10.95 for a soup and an entry....

We had plenty of seafood including oysters, shrimp and sole and everything was fresh and delicious. We had an excellent waitress too! I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Great on a summer morning
Relaxing & enjoyable for brunch on a warm summer day. The buffet offers a nice variety of dishes.

Great for brunch
The Sunday brunch offers a wide variety of deliciously and beautifully prepared breakfast and lunch foods. There were many healthy selections that satisfied the vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike at our table. It was a feast that was very reasonably priced with good service and a view that overlooked the beach. I've been to the free jazz afternoons before too and that was also really pleasant.

Ate there on a Sunday night.
Ate there on a Sunday night. Restaurant was pretty empty so we opted for the bar which was mostly full. What made this meal noteworthy was the excellent jazz band that played that night and the $31 lobster bake. You better be hungry if you order the lobster bake because it contained lots of steamed clams and mussels, lobster, two different sausages, a hot dog, two pieces of corn, a potato, and a salad. Great value for the money and very tasty to boot. Our server was great also. Over all, enjoyed it a lot but not sure I would have been so happy without the band.

All around great experience
First I must say the old fashion New England Clam Boil is by far the best around! Right as you exit your car you can feel the warm salt water breeze. You can choose to eat on the patio or inside. The only negative I will say is that if on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon your looking for a quite place to eat by the ocean then don't come here. There is a loud band and "Jersey Shore" characters everywhere. With that said on those days and any other day you can dine in the luxurious dining room or in the bar are with a fine dining setting. The staff was very accommodating and extremely children friendly. I was part of a party of four and everyone's meals were excellent.

A great meal on the ocean
A great place for a terrific meal, moderately priced. You cannot beat the location, with the moon shining on the crashing waves. The clam cakes were light , not greasy, with clams, went well with the steamed mussels. The Bouillabaisse had two colossal shrimp, tender salmon, squid, mussels and claims in light tomato broth - perfect. The Seafood Sample had two stuffed shrimps - stuffed with scallops and fish, Nantucket Scallops which were excellent having crumb topping and cheese, baked scrod with a crumb topping. The dessert we had is a must to savor, Caramel Basket with homemade vanilla ice cream, done as an ice cream Sunday great way to end a perfect evening. Service cold not have been better. The waitress was attentive not bothersome/

The food was excellent, starting
The food was excellent, starting with a delicious creamy lobster bisque with chunks of tender lobster meat. I had the meat of a 1.5 pound lobster sauteed in butter. The meat was tender and sweet. My wife ordered a striped bass special for the night which she said was very good. All dinners are served with a garden salad, a starch, and vegetable. There is a full dessert menu. The restaurant is not limited to seafood as there was a wide range of meat and poultry, including duck, on the menu. The service was good especially since they were catering two weddings at the time. One was upstairs and the other was outside under a tent facing a scenic ocean/Long Island Sound. This was a Saturday night and they had pleasant entertainment at about 9 PM

My fiancé and I dined at the Atlantic Beach Club on June 28, 2013. It is our 6 year Anniversary and we were also celebrating 1 year until our wedding at the ABC! We had Maria as our waitress and she was very nice and the food was amazing! The weather was windy and foggy so we couldn't really enjoy the view, but the ABC has a special place in our heart and we know it is a great spot! Well, obviously because we chose it as our wedding venue!! Thanks Maria and the ABC for an amazing anniversary dinner!!!

Great Dining Experience
The restaurant was an excellent experience overall. They had food my two children (7 & 9) enjoyed. We had the Surf and Turf, and it was the best steak I have had in a LONG time! Our waiter was awesome. The place was extremely busy and he still managed to serve us with excellence. The timing of appetizers, salads, and dinner was perfect. I will definitely be returning.

Romantic birthday dinner
My husband and I enjoyed the ABC for my birthday dinner. The service and food were great and reasonably priced for a nice restaurant on the water near Newport. We enjoyed the view of the beach and then had drinks at the outdoor bar after dinner. I recommend ABC to anyone who wants a nice dinner and night out while enjoying Newport.
7/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
All Around Great Spot
Whenever we're in Newport, we make a point to dine at Atlantic Beach Club. Delicious food, well-made drinks, attentive service, and a great ocean view - what more could you ask for?
7/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always amazing. No matter if it's drinks with my husband at the bar or bringing out of town guests the menu never fails!

Wonderful Sunday brunch
We sat outside at the tables for the Sunday brunch. The food was delicious and the service was friendly and accommodating. We have already recommended the brunch to some friends who will be in Newport. There is not a huge variety of food, but everyone at the table enjoyed everything on their plates and it is VERY reasonably priced!!!!
Breakfast items: scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, eggs benedict, fresh fruit, muffins, omelete station
Lunch items: seafood "casserole" (super yum!), green beans, potatoes, chicken with veggies, bread, ham, roast beef (I would have liked it rarer, but it was tasty)
Sweets: brownies, lemon cakes, cookies, coconut/raspberry bars, mini-cheesecake tarts
Ok, I am ready to go back for seconds. Enjoy!!

Friday is Jazz Night
ABC has a small jazz ensemble every Friday night that entertains the crowd in the bar area that is outstanding. We have been going there for the food, music, atmosphere, great sunsets, and great service for years now. It is a must try.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
All my guests dined on seafood, all appertizers and entrees were great. I stuck to my all time favorite dish here, The pan roasted duck breast. Superb, the best I have ever eaten. Will return soon.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent, highly recommended.
My friends and I visited Newport last weekend and had brunch and mimosas at ABC, which was recommended to us by a frequent Newport visitor. We were so glad we did--the food and service was amazing, and the views of the beach were even better. We parked our car next to the restaurant and laid out at the beach for hours after brunch, hearing the music the live band was playing. Highly recommended.

The food was excellent. We both enjoyed our selection. I had the Filet of Sole stuffed with crabmeat and spinach it was the best I have had. A little noisy on outside with patio and loud music but if you sit in dining room not so bad. Will be back

Twilight Jackpot at ABC
Thirty years ago, my wife and I found continuing amusement in the Newport Restaurant community's Twilight dinner specials, meant to offer good food at great prices to the retired community.
Lo and behold, we now find ourselves and family taking great advantage of the timely late afternoon offering from The Atlantic Beach Club. The menu offerings were complete, will stuffed scrod as the item of choice for 3 of our party of 5. It was highly praised around the table. with a delicious lobster sauce as well as delectable stuffing. First courses of Chowder or salad rounded out the meal nicely. Mixed seafood on linguini was highly praised as well, with its generous portions of mussels, scallops and other sea-born delights.

Gorgeous beach front restaurant
If you want a beautiful restaurant Right on the beach, then this seafood restaurant is for you.
Offers outdoor seating as well as a formal indoor dining room.
Outside also offers live music, but it can be very noisy.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Atlantic Beach Club offers excellent food, service, and views at great prices. And if you are there when the band is on in the lounge you can even enjoy some great music.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was excellent, restaurant on the shores of the Atlantic can't beat the view. Service on the other hand slow, at times forgotten. Overall I would still give an 8 out of 10.

What a beautiful spot to have
What a beautiful spot to have lunch with friends on the patio looking at the ocean! I always enjoy eating here with its friendly atmosphere and helpful staff. The turkey, bacon avacado sandwich was great and they switched the bread choice for me from white to multi gtrain.

A GOOD CHOICE!

We did a 5;00 dinner reservation for our 55th anniversary celebration. Food was excellent, wait staff was excellent and very friendly. The ambiance was a bit thin as we were the 2nd couple seated for dinner that night so it was kind of sterile, but the outside sunset wedding provided an interesting distraction while waiting for the food. The dinner was expensive, but that was not a shock as the Atlantic Beach Club was selected for the quality of the experience and the cost was part of the consideration. Next time I'll book for 7:00 and enjoy the bustle of a busy quality restaurant during prime time.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
d been to abc before,but we forgot how nice it was. It was very reasonably priced and the view was beautiful!
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful dining experience
This is a wonderful dining experience; very upscale without paying the upscale prices. The food was very well prepared,the seafood was extremely fresh, and of course the view was breathtaking! The entire staff made you feel like you were the only customer in the restaurant. I love this restaurant and we love to bring our friends here!

Baked stuffed lobster
We went because of Restaurant Week. We all had the baked stuffed lobster which was delicious. A great deal for $30.

Loved the lunch selections for restaurant week, we had surf(fish & chips) and turf (peppercorn tenderloin) both were excellent, with a crime brûlée that was amazing!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will go back

On Sunday, our party of 5 went for a Restaurant Week Lunch. The menu was great, but when we saw the buffet, we opted for the buffet, and were NOT disappointed. There was a great selection; the food was hot and really delicious. Go for lunch or go for brunch. you won't be disappointed.

Restaurant Week in Newport
Nice selections available for Restaurant Week fixed price menu. The chocolate ganache for dessert was superb. Lovely ocean view and easy parking. They still have Sunday afternoon music--jazz, we asked. Happy to have chosen this of the many Newport restaurants participating in the Restaurant Week venue.

Pricey, but worth it.
Although not directly in Newport, the restaurant is right on the line. It's pricy, but the scenery and food are well worth it. Was only 5 minutes away from our hotel. Great location for wedding, function, business dinner, or a romantic dinner for two. I'll definitely be going back.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
one of my favorite dining sports!
I love eating here - and I live in Newport! Food is always amazing. portions are perfect. Seafood is very fresh. The waitstaff is attentive without hovering. highly recommend dining at ABC!

A pleasant surprise.!
What a pleasant surprise! The restaurant wasn't crowded on a Saturday night (although I expect in the summer months it is) The service was very good. Jason was outstanding! Great drinks, food was very good and they offer $20 bottles of wine! I had a steak/lobster combo that was excellent. There was live entertainment that was very good. The surprising thing was the prices. I couldn't believe how reasonable the prices were and big portions. This isn't five star dining but it was very good. Cheap enough to bring the family. Great desserts were offered but I just didn't have room. I should have stayed to listen to the band. It's nice to see there is a place to dine in Newport that doesn't break the bank.
