Location could not be any
Location could not be any better. We were greeted by a friendly and enthusiastic staff as we prepared for the St. Patrick's Day brunch. The food was outstanding, from the hangover burgers to, perhaps, the best sausage and gravy I have ever had. Cannot wait to get back to Newport and dine at our newest favorite spot.

@ The Deck once again...
We are regulars at the Deck even though we live out of state. You might notice that we checked both Fit For Foodies and Great For Outdoor Dining. Literally, there is a deck where one can have drinks and simple food while looking at the Bay. The view is so beautiful that visitors do not realize that directly behind them is a happening top notch restaurant where Matt the Chef always produces 4 to 5 star dishes--truly fine dining. And the best part about the restaurant's layout, if you get there early enough, is that you can be one of those lucky people who sit at the bar, watch the talented chef and his staff prepare the dishes from start to finish, while having a perfect cocktail. Always a favorite in this competitive restaurant town.

Delicious Food & Great Service
What more can you ask for? The potato-leek soup was amazing. Very flavorful! The prosciutto wrapped cod was cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. It was a great dinner experience!!

Waterfront dining in Newport
We had a great meal. We went all seafood, everything was fresh, tasty, and the presentation was innovative and fun. We started outside on the deck with a great view of Newport harbor and the sunset, then moved in to the bar as it got colder for dessert and a cocktail. Excellent overall. For those nitpicky types, there are only a couple negative comments: the deck seating was very informal- like a picnic area. In the defense of the restaurant I don't think they really expected outside dining yet as it is only mid may. And then one of us had a lobster-pasta dish which was excellent except it had a garnish of fried onions which didn't in our opinion go with the dish. Picked off, the dish was great. . Great service, happy fun crowd. Go

Safe Harbor on a stormy night!
Our first day in Newport, RI felt like the rainstorm of the century. We almost decided to order room service but then decide to venture into the storm. So very glad we did. We had a wonderful seafood dinner and one of the best Hencricks martinis ever. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable getting us started with the perfect blue point oysters. We returned the next night after dinner to enjoy the bar scene....great for people watching.

Perfect to take visiting guests
I have had drinks at the bar several times but this is the first time I dined at The Deck and it was very nice. The hostess and server were attentive. The food was very good and the atmosphere perfect for chatting with friends over a leisurely dinner.

Nervous after previous reviews
I was a bit nervous actually going to try this place out after some of the reviews. Reviews telling of bad service and horrible hostesses, but whatever was said must have been quickly corrected by the owner and management. Our waitress was awesome and the manager came by to ensure our meal was made to perfection. The food was amazing and the open air style kitchen is a real treat since you know how your food is being prepared! Great place and would recommend it to anyone!

I have eaten here numerous times over 5-6 years and despite a new chef in the kitchen, the level of food and service has remained consistently fine. It is always the first place i book when coming to Newport.

We were a group of eight so
We were a group of eight so there were six different dishes eaten. The only shortcoming was that the stuffed pork chop was a little overcooked. It could have been moister. The wedge salad was excellent. The steaks were cooked to the eaters request and very tasty. The service was excellent. The hostess was personable and made us feel wel44come. Our server was attentive and cordial. He explained the specials to us with knowledge of what the foods were. The wine list was a little lacking.
The décor could be a little warmer.
With the prices that are charged, the management should pay for the parking for the restaurant. We all felt paying $20 for parking at a restaurant that charges such high prices ($44 for a filet) was a little insulting.

Nice night out @ The Deck
We had a nice anniversary dinner at @ The Deck. The wait staff was very attentive and the food was delicious. It is a small place so the noise level is a bit high, but the piano was a nice touch. My husband got the Duck Breast Au Poivre and it was very moist and tender. I got the Apple Jack Short Ribs and they were also very well done. The carrot cake was delicious.

a quick visit
Visiting Newport for a quick getaway, stumbled upon restaurant week. Randomly picked The Deck. Made a great choice! Had a wonderful meal, great server, listened to some quiet background music. A very nice evening. My only complaint if that is finding the restaurant in the dark . No sign from the road indicating it's location. We ended up parking in a pay lot down the road and asking directions along the way. Walking down a dark alleyway was a little disconcerting, but we did find our way and had a lovely dinner.

GREAT FIND !!!!
I happened on this restaurant on Open Table not knowing where to go when in Newport for a weekend. From beginning to end: superb! Noted on res. that it was our anniversary, and everyone took pains to wish us well. Waiter was spectacular. Offered me tastes of scotch before I selected one; our wine was "iffy" and he immediately took it back and suggested a different (less expensive) one. The scallops and lamb shank were out of this world. Chef came to banter with us, and gave us a recipe. Dessert, a waffle bread pudding came with a lit sparkler and was complimentary. Ambiance: terrific. I can't praise this place enough... and by the way, the prices were extremely reasonable for what we received! Worth the 2 hr. trip to get there!
