Waitstaff could have been friendlier
by Lindsay B.
Backyahd barbeque IPA is excellent and very reasonably priced $5.50 tax in.
by Stefan D.
The clam chowder tasted like watered down Cambells.
by Scott M.
Do not sit outdoors unless you actually like communal seating. For the price you're paying they shouldn't have to sit next to strangers.
by Paige W.
Dog friendly on the patio!
by PupDawg G.
Best place ever. Ashley the waitress. Ask for her. Tell i sent you. Steamers are prego - but are so delish!!!!

As an out of towner, I was expecting more local seafood choices
by Jennifer A.
Food was good as was the service. Nice spot for lunch. Special was lobster bisque and it was amazing!
by Jen V.
Mike the bartender is awesome, very attentive and friendly not to mention very easy on the eyes...Wish I got to know him better. Food smelt and looked great but we only stayed for drinks.
Service was great. Food was good. We had the fishermen's platter, waiter was pleasant asked how everything was and brought our check quickly when asked to do so. Give it another try.

The oysters are decent. Give it a try, but as Sean Connery once said, "I'm waiting to be impressed."
by Stephen S.
Thanks everyone for the fair warning. We left!
by Ryan K.
The outdoor patio seating is quite nice for large group events.
by Jake S.
Nothing egregious, but nothing great. Go elsewhere.
by Ryan K.
Ask for John, as is John Daley, the drink...
by Tristan P.
Service was great contrary to other reviews. Staff went on their way to deliver superb service. Maybe they have been checking out negative postings here.
by Ian S.
Don't confuse the airhead hostess by requesting a different table...you will wait another 10 min while the bus a table next to 20 clean one
by Janice G.
Love this place! Always come here while visiting Newport. Crab legs are delicious! Sit at the bar, you won't be disappointed :-)
by Erin K.
Disguisting. After drinking my whole Mai tai , found out there was a napkin in the bottom of my glass under the fruit. I was horrified.
by Marisa M.
Nothing memorable about the food or the service...
by Kerem K.
Don't get the chicken fingers
by Erik B.
Bar tables suck. Too high. Servers have cute "got crabs?" shirts.
by Stephanie R.
Under seasoned and bad service
by Eric P.
Bad attitudes and okay food...keep walking!
by Ralph W.
ungoddly expensive for lunch
by John T.
Worst servers ever!
by Tanya S.
Service is slow but why are you people getting chicken sandwiches? Go to brick alley or red parrot for chicken, go to the barking crab for seafood.
by Peter G.
Turn Around Now! Service is so slow and food ranges from okay to flat out nasty. Soup's good.
by Chris J.
Awful service. Undercooked/raw chicken sandwich. No apology from staff and no compensation for the egregious experience. Do yourself a favor and stay away from this rude establishment!
by Danielle S.
Rude people. Horrible service. Sandwich was raw and wasn't given free. Will never return.
by Analeisa D.
Roasted potatoes taste like beer... Odd.
by Ellen W.
Julie is an awesome waitress!
by Sandra K.
The grilled sandwich wasn't that good, I'd try somewhere else.
by Hunter S.
The prices are insane! i had a way better Crabcake Sandwich for 6 bucks inland that kicked the ass of the $14 one here!
by Ryan S.
The lobster rolls are not very good at all, but the corn crab chowder is awesome.
by Carlos M. S.
They should model this Barking Crab more like the one in Boston. If they could be more informal and less expensive - this place would make a killing.
by Kala H.
Lobster roll is average, at best.

Off the wagon apprreciates your business. COLLEGE!
