I had a salad in the late afternoon and it was delicious! The service was great and the price is right!

Many people that sat after us got served way ahead of us. Not until we summoned the manager did we get it and very soon after that. Wait staff looked over worked and had a hard time keeping up which is on manager's shoulders. When leaving...my response to "how was the clam chowder soup?" was..."The gespacho was good"...the server immediately took it off our bill. We thanked her but the overall experience will lead us in another direction next time.

Went for lunch, were quickly seated, that is when it slowed down, it took at Leasr 10 minutes just to get the waitress to acknowledge us,to take our bar order. I would have mined but the restaurant was not crowded. We put our order in, 50 minutes later our late lunch came out. No apologies for the time it took. Can't imagine if this place was busy. Never again!!!

Terrible service... after an hour never got our food... thought this looked like a nice place... sat outside and the place was not crowded.. it took 10-15 minutes just to order ... got our drinks and waited 50 minutes for our fish and chips... when we finally asked the bartender he said the kitchen is a bit backed up.. seemed weird since the place was mostly empty, hardly anyone in side and people after us were served ... decide not to wait any more... bartender didn’t even apologize ...
Not coming back

This review is overdue. Stopped into The Pier for drinks and a light dinner in July while walking around in Newport. Dave & Rachel at the outside bar were more then helpful with suggesting places to go and things to see. Drinks were awesome and there was a was a one man band playing music.
