    We were a large party and therefore had to be seated indoors. Other than not being able to sit outside, our experience was very good. Our server was great and the food was very good. Would definitely recommend Surf Club.

    First timers searching for great pizza . (we’re spoiled by New Haven CT) moved here recently and our search has been futile until tonight! We’ll be back for Pizza for sure. Just hoping the summer crowds don’t get in the way lol

    We noted in the reservation that we had two toddlers who needed high chairs - they sat us in a large booth and then the host practically ran away without getting the high chairs. Finally we got someone to get them for us, but because it was a raised booth it was difficult to get the table close enough to the high chairs. I don’t recommend bringing kids there at all

    Service left much to be desired. We were one of only 3-4 tables in the room. Our server had to come back to the table to confirm our order on 2-3 separate occasions. Including an entree which was delivered a few minutes after the rest of the table, which I can only assume was due to it not being rang in based on the fact that I watched the salad be made after our server came to the table to ask what we were missing. Not the normal experience we have at Surf Club and won't prevent a return visit. thank you

    Overall, we really liked our brunch at this restaurant. The menu is interesting, the food was great and the ambiance is nice. Our only criticisms were that the coffee was lukewarm at best and they do not have cream or half and half (?!)--only milk for coffee, which seems strange for a restaurant serving brunch. We would still go back, and would like to try it for lunch or dinner, too.

    Very very loud and extremely small portions. Had to order 2 taco entrees for our son. Speaker on our booth could not be turned down so we put our coats over it to muffle the noise. Drinks were very good.

    Great experience overall. Had the deep fried green beans as and app and they were excellent. Followed that with the meatball pizza, also very good. My only complaint is where we were seated. I wanted to sit at a table as I don't care for high-tops (most of the restaurant is high-top seating on backless bar stools), and was seated at a table way in the back of the restaurant which was not a bad location, but every time a staff member went by and opened the back door, there was a cold wind across my back. I solved the problem by placing my coat over the back of my chair. I would eat there again, but I'm not sure I would sit at that table again, particularly in cold weather.

    Saturday night - warm salad, small portions. overpriced for portion size, inattentive wait staff - did not offer to refill soda during meal experience (55 minutes), limited menu (if you do not want pizza). Lots of other great restaurants in the area.

    We stumbled on this place and what a good find. Everything we’ve tried and the menu has been good and decent size portions. The beer menu is a little bit lacking as there’s only so much on tap. The place is a little bit noisy when it’s full. Will keep going back.

    Kids buttered noodles were burnt (???) and Vietnamese bao buns would be more aptly called V bad buns. Also, no hot tea to be had? Disappointing and not cheap. Our service was delightful - that was the brightest spot!

    Love everything about Surf Club. Food is always fantastic but let’s be honest, I always come back for the Pineapple Painkiller! I think I need to ask the bartender for the recipe. Usually a summertime visit, welcomed with Reggae playing. A warm and rustic interior sets the perfect vibe….and the bathrooms, you have to check those out! Gorgeous decor, dim lighting and tropical vibes, right up my alley! This recent visit was the day after Christmas so it was quiet, no Reggae because football. Newport was beautifully and magically lit for the season. Next time I will definitely be checking out their brunch!
