I had put in the notes that we needed an additional high chair, and they accommodated with no issues. GREAT service, excellent food, breakfast cocktails were out of this world. Really made my Mother's Day. Can't wait to hit this place up again!

I had a reservation for 8:30 P.M. through Open Table and upon arriving, the host did not have the reservation on his tablet. After pulling up the reservation on my phone and showing the host I did indeed have a reservation at 8:30 P.M. for 4, I was told "Well that's too bad, I don't have it on my end, how do you expect us to have a table for you? It's going to be 30-45 minutes for a table."

OpenTable is a partner in which your restaurant chooses to work with in order to accept reservations. It is not the customers fault that your technology and partnership failed in this circumstance. The way in which this was handled by the host was unprofessional. I would suggest the next time someone shows you that they have a reservation made and if for some reason you don't have it on your end, that you get a manager and figure out a solution to the situation. I also suggest offering an appetizer or a drink for having if there is a wait to have to figure out the best solution.

The Wharf Pub is mediocre at best. First of all, there was no Ketel 1 vodka in the house. Martinis were served in the old-fashioned type martini glass, not my favorite. The children’s grilled cheese was made with a thick, gloppy, heavy yellow cheddar cheese. The fries she was served were rosemary fries, admittedly a mistake on the part of the restaurant but we refused a replacement. No other accommodations were made. The marchers pizza was very thin and over seasoned according to our taste The tater tats were the best part of the evening.
With soooo many restaurants to choose from in Newport I’d look elsewhere.

Normally I really enjoy the Wharf Pub—this was an off day. Food was still great, but service wasn’t good at all. We were put at a table right on top of another party when the restaurant was empty, so we requested to move. New table was fine, but the food took an eternity to come out (again, the restaurant wasn’t busy at all). Our waitress didn’t check up on us for drink refills either. Food quality is still there if you don’t mind waiting forever, but the service has slipped.

The Wharf Pub is a great place to sit back, relax, and have some drinks and food. The oysters we had out of Matunuk were fresh and delicious. The beer list was long and many good choices. We kept to eating pub food choices so I can’t talk about the entree menu but the burgers and shrimp were good. A great place to relax!

Disappointed with the food quality and high prices. Service was decent, but the overall experience was not up to the level that many other places we go in Newport. Again, not terrible but there are many other choices for the same or less money.

We were in New Port over the weekend. We were able to get a reservation which was great because everywhere around the wharf was on a hour plus wait for 2. Atmosphere was fun but our server was kind of well, rude. We got seated and he was at our table as we were picking up the menu we asked for more time since the drink menu has a lot of great things on it. He looked at us like we had 3 heads sort of mumbled and walked away. We had to ask for water 3 times and finally it arrived as we were finishing dinner. Pub Weiner was delicious but we were disappointed not more seafood with its location. But everything was tasty! Definitely a good vibe in there if you want to be around people:)

I had fish and chips and the fish was good but the chips were a bit small-sized and amount. Probably because we were there late, after 9 because we went to a different restaurant first.

Great location. Menu seemed interesting and fun. Tater tots were great but small portion (we shared.) Waited well over an hour for our entrees which were ok not outstanding - we all had burgers of some variation. Would consider trying again - maybe we just had an off night.

Had chicken and waffles. Chorizo was a bit overwhelming for the dish. Not enough chicken. Also had shrimp and grits. It’s was delicious but the Chorizo was almost too spicy and takes over the dish. Waiter was mediocre. Drinks were good. Overall We still enjoyed it.

The food was great. Not outstanding, but definitely tasty. The ambiance inside leaves something to be desired. I was disappointed that because we booked a rez on Open Table we had to sit inside. The outdoor patio is a real selling point of dining at the Wharf. I would go back to check out their beer selection.

The hostess was rude and said she could not honor our reservation becaue they were made 45 munutes earlier. She actually laughed at me. I showed her the conformation through open table and she said we have to wait until a table was available or we coould sit in community bar area. I complained and we were seates about 30 minutes later.

Visiting from New Jersey with friends and saw the Wharf had good ratings online. We were seated promptly at our reservation time and offered drink specials. Extensive drink selection. I went with a porter first and then the paloma after. Both were very good. We had peel and eat shrimp for the appetizer and the flavor was great. I ordered the BBQ brisket sandwich and the thing was a beast. So much flavor was packed into the sandwich and it all went together really well. Tater tots on the side were hot and crispy so that was a plus. There was some love music which was cool, and not too loud. The overall atmosphere and decor was cool too. Great spot to meet up for dinner, would definitely return if I’m ever back in Newport.

Friendly server but terrible food. Beef Sliders were literally identical to my son’s kids meal but double the price. Another burger was totally over cooked and our request for ketchup went unanswered. All in all, a waste of money!
