This is a popular place in a great location. The portions are large and the service was good. We had lunch. The lobster sandwich was fabulous.

The views are really gorgeous, and we were there on a cloudy day and it was still breathtaking. The appetizers were so delicious and their bartender knows how to make delicious drinks!! It’s a wonderful place for special occasions, or just because.

Visited on a Tuesday night in mid July for dinner. We had reservations, and were seated within 5 minutes after arrival. Did not receive antrees until 1 hour later. Food was OK, but don’t go if you need prompt service.

Food was good, nothing out of this world but great setting right on the water. Restaurant is loud so hard to talk at long table.

Highly recommend the lobster croissant and grilled chicken gyro. Wonderful water view on the patio with all the yachts. Beautiful location and ambience. Reservation is a must and better to plan ahead. This place books up quickly.

After a few hours of touring mansions and walking Newport, my husband and I enjoyed a late lunch at The Mooring. Was given a choice of an outdoor table either in the sun or shade. Sat outside with a pretty view of the boats in...More

Had a nice dinner at the Moorings. Started out not good as we had to change our seats. The chairs on the outside portion of the restaurant were not comfortable and confining. We were moved to another location that overlooked the outside portion and we...More

We were at the Mooring for dinner, so we did dress a little nicer, but there were people coming in with Jeans, etc. If I were going for lunch and it's a nice day, I would definitely wear shorts. I hope you enjoy the... More

Hi Pat, There is no fixed dress code as far as I know, so you will see people dressed from very casual to very dressy there. For guys, Docker type shorts and a polo or button down shirt (tucked or untucked) is perfect for... More
