A Must Visit Anytime of Year
The Mooring offers everything you want in a Newport dining experience; al fresco seating, expansive harbor views, and warm hospitality. Located along the historic wharves of downtown Newport, this classic restaurant has a lovely back “deck” shaded from the sun and with fabulous views of the harbor.
So many delicious menu choices, but one of our favorites is the the famous “Bag of Donuts”- crispy fritters of lobster, crab and shrimp. We also recommend a classic steamed or baked stuffed lobster; a signature version of the popular lobster roll; as well as chilled lobster claws or whole lobster from the extensive raw bar. Lobster salad or lobster tail is also available to top off any of the Mooring’s freshly made salads.
Open for both lunch and dinner (private group dining is available), the menu is complimented with an award-winning wine list; one of the most acclaimed in New England.
Why we love it: Fabulous atmosphere, food and service. It’s a wow!
