The Mooring is one of my favorite restaurants in the whole of Newport. Lovely views of the harbor, excellent food, and amazing wait staff. It truly does not get any better. They may have 4 out of 5 stars on Yelp, but they have 5 stars in my book. I have been a regular at the Mooring for about six years now. It is safe to say that I am a devoted guest to this incredible establishment.
Above are some of the pictures from the evenings meal. My favorite part of the meal of course is all that seafood, all the Lobster, the oysters. The only thing missing, I would say are crabs legs. Yummy. On their website, they boast themselves as having the “Freshest Seafood” and they are not lying. Just look at my images, they truly do have some of the freshest seafood that I have ever seen or eaten. You can check out their menu here. It is extensive.
Also, if you can, make sure to make a RESERVATION. I cannot stress this enough. On busy days, the wait can be as long as three hours.
