The Gulf Stream Bar & Grille
The Gulf Stream Bar and Grille’s creative menu offers coastal cooking with a New England Twist - taking delicious recipes from regions along the Gulf Stream, adding our own New England style and offering them to you. We use only the highest quality products, locally sourced and organic when possible. All of our dishes are house-made with the freshest ingredients and we proudly support our local farmers and fishermen.
We are housed in an original Quonset Hut, built in 1942 as part of the US Navy’s PT-Boat Training Center at Melville. The space was converted into a restaurant over 30 years ago and began operation as The Gulf Stream Bar and Grille in May 2016.

We always enjoy our lunch/dinners at Gulf Stream. Relaxed atmosphere and great food. I do recommend friends and strangers to go to Gulf Stream. We will be back!!
Love The Gulf Stream Bar and Grille. We visit at least once a week!
Sat outside beautiful view of marina but inside look very nice also. Food was good, portions not small, service excellent. If looking to get out of the hustle and bustle of Newport would recommend.
The debris sandwich was delicious! Everyone enjoyed their meal.
Great food and service. Loved the vibe of the restaurant and some great live music to top it all off.
Great food, great service. Always consistent. The new raw bar is a great addition. Everything was so fresh and delicious.
We ate outside, the service was slow and I wouldn't recommend eating the chicken
Great place to relax! Great staff!!The view speaks for itself.
As long as you don’t mind sitting next to a parking lot (and I don’t…it’s a boat and car parking lot!) food was great. Service was lovely. Great hot humid summer afternoon!
Lovely evening outside. Service was quite good. Disappointed that four of the menu items we had been hoping to eat were not available.
Long wait for food and drinks. Got the order wrong and the food was blah. Too bad as great location on the water.
The food was good and staff were nice but food was very slow. 2.5 hours for entire meal which would be ok but lots of waiting and then told us we needed to leave as people were waiting for the table.
The food was fabulous. They need more signage. Very difficult finding the restaurant. Will definitely go again.
Everything was overpriced and food & cocktails awful! The sangria was literally disgusting.
Great meal and location. Always fun. Love the music.
This place is fast becoming our favorite restaurant on the Island! Great food and drinks, friendly staff, the environment/ambience is awesome(it feels like we're hanging-out at a marina somewhere in Key West!), and we appreciate the nice, casual atmosphere.
Love the Gulf Stream! 2X a month is not enough! Keep up the good work!
Ashley was a great waitress!!
Google sent us here when we couldn't get into another nearby restaurant. It's location had great potential, being in a marina, but the food was poor quality. Service was very good, not their fault that the product was not up to par.
The waitress was friendly but not knowledgeable about food and drink menu items. (She told us that she had been employed there for five years which was surprising to us.) She didn’t know which beer on tap was an IPA nor could she pronounce names of menu items when we asked. About 10 minutes after we placed our order she informed us that my husband’s rice side was no longer available because they ran out of rice and asked which side he would like as a replacement. My entree was supposed to be served on a bed of rice but she didn’t mention any changes needing to be made so I assumed they had enough for my dish but not enough to serve as a side to his. When our meals were served I had no rice and no other side. When I inquired, she realized her mistake, apologized and asked if I wanted a different side. The food was just adequate. There was no other effort to make amends by reducing the bill. We won’t be returning there again.
Terrible experience. Worst in years. Loud Karaoke singer, WAY too loud for the venue. Tried to reach both indoor and out, but that made it ridiculous for indoor dining. Could not even hear conversation.
As for food, my jerk chicken sandwich was excellent. But my wife ordered tuna tacos. Out of tuna. Shrimp substitute. No problem. But two tacos had one shrimp and the third had two! What chef puts a single shrimp on a taco?
Service was super but the rest spoiled it.
We left disillusioned....
One of the best plate of nachos I've had in a long time...the Carribean pulled pork is a must!!
Great service...thanks Emma & Rita!!
Very pretty venue near the water. Food and service were great.
Better than average food in a causal setting. Pleasant staff and both indoor and outdoor seating. Very reasonable prices and easy parking. Good view of sunset over adjoining marina
One of the best lobster rolls i have had and the service was friendly and quick!
Though we reserved well ahead and requested outdoor seating, we were told upon arrival that the empty tables outside for 4 were for larger groups (our party was 3). Service thereafter was quite slow.
Fantastic New Orleans inspired food with a top notch rum list.
Great spot for a meal and some drinks!
I ordered arugula with chicken. Chicken tasted like frozen bag chicken. Horrible. I would go mostly for view.
We went on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was almost full, but noisy, even outside. Oddly, although in the marina it was set up in a way so that there were few views of the water. The food was fine but did not stand out. I had a bean and corn salad topped with ahi tuna which was tasty. The fish and chips was also competent, although the fries were a bit soggy. Beer is served in cans or plastic glasses, and so was not as cold as I would have liked. Although the staff was nice enough, the service was slow and left something to be desired. I would eat here again if I was in the area, but would not go out of my way.
I made reservations for my husband's birthday and I reminded them before he came to the table they said ok. My tacos was extremely dry and my cocktail blueberry lemonade wasn't all that great. When I ordered our dessert I was hoping they would sing or bring the cake out with a candle in it. When I told our waitress she said they didn't inform her it was his birthday. The only thing that was pleasant was the Oceanview and my shrimp cocktail.
Great, casual location away from busy downtown Newport!
Sat outside, enjoyed a Friday evening dinner. Nice accommodating server. Food was good
interesting menu and fun atmosphere. I will be going there again
We sat outside...many umbrellas out there and an area of roof. Staff were great even though we showed up 10 minutes late as I was lost. I'll be back!
The Gulf Stream Bar & Grille is a hidden gem! Tucked away in a busy arena, my husband found it by chance and it was well worth the visit. Our Server (Ashley) was friendly, extremely attentive and took fabulous care of us throughout our visit. We were delighted to see Hushpuppies on the appetizer menu (we only ever seen those down south) and they were huge, perfectly fried and the dipping sauce had a nice kick to it. I ordered the beef tacos and my husband got the mussels - we did not leave the restaurant hungry OR disappointed! Highly recommend, we'll definitely be going back next time we're in the area
Service was slow but overall nice spot
We have been here several times always a great experience.Music and special menu additions on weekends are fantastic.Staff is always super friendly. New outside bar with covering to keep you out of the elements on a rainy day and it's pet friendly. Great new raw bar. Make it a point to stop in
