Dress is fairly casual. Pretty much what you would wear to a nice restaurant or theater.

The Newport Playhouse was established in 1983 and has been a favorite with locals and tourists ever since we first opened our doors. We are a family-run business and we cater to your needs as if you were a member of our own family. Our airconditioned, handicap accessible theatre is conveniently located at the foot of the Newport Bridge and has plenty of parking. Our dinner theatre is unique...enjoy a great buffet--a wonderful play and a fun-filled cabaret. Our extensive, hearty buffet does not skimp on quality or selection. Everything is prepared on the premises. We offer a large variety of hot and cold foods, main entrees, side dishes, beverages and homemade desserts. A full liquor service is available either tableside or at the comfortable bar. You will not be disappointed! Our intimate theatre is just a short stroll from the dining room. There you will have reserved seating to enjoy some of the finest entertainment available. Professional actors will delight you with a wonderful play worthy of Broadway. Then it is back to your original table...or you may enjoy the view from the bar...where the dining room has been transformed into a delightful Cabaret where our Company Members continue to entertain you with songs and laughter. A great night out! Just as you would expect it to be!
