This restaurant is more of a sports bar. Although the food was good it was expensive and the atmosphere was dismal with low lighting. I had to use my phone light to see the menu and check. HowEver, our server was terrific.
Wondering! View was outstanding!!
We had a patio table overlooking the water. The scenery was beautiful. The food was average. The service was unfortunately not good. Our waitress, who was also the bartender, was not personably and made us feel like we were bothering her when we asked for anything.
It was just okay. Expected more from a Marriott restaurant.
Service was great , the food was ok
The noise level was so high we had to leave. It was not set up for inside eating. The server was not very friendly. Would not go back.
All good. Tasty and hot.
Our bartender/waiter/do it all guy was beyond amazing!!! We had a 6:00 reservation on Tuesday September 7th and he literally was the only person working and the place inside and outside was FULL!!! Making all drinks which by the way…the BEST mojitos ever and serving everyone in and out!! Kudos to him and he should be rewarded as an employee because what he did was of superhero status! I would have been overwhelmed and left crying if I were him but he rocked it out like a superstar!!!
Asked for spicy sauce on side. Came already applied. Soft taco shells were stale and hard.
We were in Newport over Labor Day weekend for a wedding, and while the Skiff Bar team was short staffed, they did their absolute best to keep all their tables happy. They were polite and friendly and the food was fantastic. Definitely recommend!
It was just mediocre. Not bad but not something I can’t wait to get again.
Beautiful location and would be a great place to meet for drinks but i probably wouldn't go there to eat again.
The food was mediocre at best and the service wasn't very good. They got our order wrong and we had to ask for silverware. The waitress seemed cranky but wasn't outright unpleasant.
Perfect appt for outdoor eats and drinks.
The wings were really good. Fries were great and the burgers were good.
Forgot our order. Food stayed under the warming lites. Dry and overcooked
Staff was working very hard to provide good service. They were clearly short staffed due to pandemic issues.
Beautiful view when dining outside. We had a great, friendly server and appreciated the positive experience upon arrival and checking-in at the Marriott. Thanks!
Our original reservation at another restaurant was cancelled due to a storm. At the last minute we needed to find dinner at a place near our hotel (not the Marriott) and initially requested outdoor seating. When we realized it would be pouring down rain, I called to request a table inside. Randy returned my call ASAP and made the change for us. Our table was ready on time, and the wait staff was efficient and pleasant. Our food was delicious! We were wishing we were staying on site!
We understand the limited menu and staffing due to the pandemic. However, our allergy note was not followed, the burger was tasteless (the salmon dish was very good) and the better items were removed from the menu. We hope things pick up post-pandemic.
We were staying at this hotel and had just walked for miles, so were too tired to find a restaurant elsewhere. We ate between lunch and dinner, so only the bartender was doing everything (while the host pretty much stood there and didn't help her at all). Food was ok, not great. Bartender was too busy really to check on us (host could have - he was 10 feet away). But it served its purpose of ok food when we were starving and exhausted.
We were staying at the Marriott Hotel and went to have a drink at 5:00 pm at The Skiff Bar. There was no one in the bar and one couple on the patio. We were asked if we had a reservation and said no. She told us we could sit at the inside bar, but outside seating was booked up (she was lying)We walked outside and booked a table on OPEN TABLE
We came back and the same hostess didn’t recognize us and seated us right away on the outside patio. We had two drinks and passed on dinner as we had reservations for dinner elsewhere. Maybe three other couples came in and sat down outside. The place was still empty when we left at around 6:15. WHY WOULD YOU LIE TO CUSTOMERS?
Came here for lunch. Service was good. Food was good. Nice view of the boats on the water. Only disappointment was that their online menu was different than the menu we were given. Really wanted a lobster roll which is why I booked there, however it wasn’t on the menu. Asked and they said they didn’t have them.
Quiet and comfortable outdoor dining with a view. Good food and our service was fantastic! Will definitely be back.
What a great place! Food and drinks hit the spot and Steph was amazing!
It was a gorgeous Summer day, so sitting outside overlooking the harbor was perfect! I had a turkey BLT and an Arnold Palmer- the toasted bread in particular was delicious. The other food ordered at the table was fine, good- a mini pizza and another BLT. The service was good.
We were greeted with a friendly host at the entrance our waiter and all the staff at the location were amazing the food was beyond great as well as the customer service. We came to visit Rhode Island to celebrate my daughter‘s 24th birthday and I have to say skiff bar did an excellent job and the service provided to my daughter on her special day.
Very limited menu and not quite the view of the water we wanted. Service was good and friendly but the host was kind of a stiff. Food was meh. Limited selection and frankly not very good. I won’t be back.
The staff did a wonderful job! Very friendly and welcoming. We really enjoyed sitting outside with the water views. Food was very good.
Wow this ios NOT what I'm accustom to experiencing, It's a 5 Star Hotel charging $700 to $800 per night, poor every thing, tables, waitress, menu, food choices, etc....
Stephanie was a friendly, knowledgeable and helpful server!!
Food was great. It was obvious that they were short staffed, but they did just fine.
Best service in Newport. The food is delicious too.
Fair experience. Service just so so. Very noise venue. Food nothing to write home about.
I know that this is a hotel restaurant, however we have had two other very positive experiences here. This time, the waitress was clearly unhappy to be serving guests as she was quite unpleasant and only came promptly when it was time to give us the check. It was 85 degrees plus and I had to ask for a drink order, wait an extended time to get my drink, and then we were never offered refills. We had to ask for water on this steamy deck. I don't think we will return anytime soon which is unfortunate considering the location, but there are too many other good places to go instead.
The wait staff Stephanie and Sam were incredible. The view and ambience were also great and food was terrific.
Nothing awful and nothing great. We all had a Turkey BLT. Deli Turkey on toast. How can that go wrong? For Newport on a Saturday it was about as good as you can get for a quick bite without dropping $100.
The food was OK, but the service was really underwhelming. The host told us we were lucky to get a table even though we had a reservation made few days in advance, and the dining room was mostly empty. The waitress did not apologize for the chicken that was not fully cooked - just brought a replacement. We will not go back.
The Skiff Bar has some of the best Buffalo Chicken Wings In Rhode Island. Plus the Shrimp Tacos were amazing with a great sauce and slice of avocado.
