    Great location and atmosphere. The biscuit is absolutely delicious. Fish and Chips are average. heavy greasy batter, did not enjoy. Good drinks. I think for tourist it’s good but my guess is there is better seafood elsewhere.

    We had a fantastic lunch at The Mooring! Their outdoor seating area has such a nice atmosphere, and our server was very kind and attentive. The appetizers were great and the lobster rolls did not disappoint!

    Food was great! Our server was amazing, so friendly, professional and helpful. The front of house however very stern and not very welcoming, hence the drop of a star. A hello, smile and goodbye can make such a difference! Everything else however made up for this :)

    Very good seafood in an upscale but not “too fancy” environment. Great service and hard working staff! Food is pricier for the portions but the freshness of the seafood is why.

    The service was excellent. The fish and chips were overcooked and over battered. The fish was not evident through the batter. The halibut was tasty but cold as were the mashed potatoes. Disappointing since we brought guests to our favorite restaurant in Newport. Also parking at $9 per hour is really out of line.
