Service was great, food was pretty average. The menu wasn’t very extensive and it was a little pricey for the value. But it’s a beautiful location and a great and easy spot for a nice dinner!
We have always enjoyed the Skiff Bar. It provides a beautiful view of Newport Harbor with sunny or umbrella covered tables. The bar menu changes frequently, so choices are increased over time. We, and our family, have never had a less than excellent appetizer, sandwich or full meal at Skiff Bar. At our last visit yesterday, we had two exceptional servers who worked well together. Sam(antha) and Debbie. They were so good, I actually stopped to tell the manager, also very professional, on the way out. Highly recommend.
Would like a few more choices on the menu such as nachos, BLTs, steak and cheese sub or pizza.
The Food was inedible and overcooked.
Online menu was two years out of date and all the dishes we had wanted were no longer on the menu.
Outdoor dinning was great , really liked the fish and chips . Great service
Fairly Quiet 2nd floor outcropped deck on Long Wharf overlooking the North end of the inner harbor. No loud music, great for conversation with friends while enjoying a a view of harbor boats coming and going!
I was at Skiff bar last night for an early dinner with 2 other adults and my two small children. The waitress, Stephanie (or Samantha, I apologize I don't remember her name) seemed to be the ONLY person working the outside patio, and every table was full. The service was a little slow, being there was only once waitress, which we understood and was never rude about it. But she shouldn't have been alone, I know and understand staffing is hard in these times but we saw other employees there that I felt could have helped out. She was amazing and in good spirits every though she never stopped moving and running around! Food was wonderful as usual. Shoot out to that lovely waitress, your restaurant is lucky to have her!
Waitress did a great job.
Nice place. Needs to have more signs in the lobby on how to find it. Had a nice waitress and the food was good
Food was very slow in coming out once order was taken. Waitress explained that kitchen was severely understaffed. (I attribute that to the pandemic's effect on employment). The food was good (calamari, clam chowder and veggie burger).
Great spot to unwind with drinks and great food
It was a perfect” 1st date dinner”. I just wish you had a salad with steak on it.
We had lunch at the Skiff Bar. We ate outside and had an enjoyable meal. The food was good and the service excellent. We did miss the lobster rolls that they used to have.
We were the only people in there and the server/bartender waited on us. He was so friendly and efficient as we were under a time crunch. Food was delicious. Glad we chose this place.
Worst service we’ve
Excellent food. Period. Highly recommended. I'd be comfortable taking anyone there.
Egg breakfast was ice cold and by time the server came around to see how everything was it was another 20 minutes at which point we didn’t even bother saying anything.
Very convenient location, bright and airy with view of the harbor. Food was all fresh and delicious.
Fourth of July fireworks on 5 th of July.
Food is very good the clams with spaghetti was too spicy for my kids to eat. Our waitress said we wouldn’t be able to see the fireworks from our seats so we left in a hurry. My husband said we would’ve been able to see the fireworks from our seats!
A great Waterfront setting and Stephanie provided Superior Service!
Beautiful views of Newport Harbor, great food and wonderful service by Stephanie!! A must for those visiting and residents of Aquidneck Island!!
We sat outside with a beautiful view of the water for lunch. Service was outstanding! Food was good!
Love this place
Overall the dinner was pretty good and had a pretty view of the water. However, we were underwhelmed with a few of the dishes and drinks. Great location but the food was nothing special.
Food was overpriced and bland. Service was incredibly slow. View was nice but not worth the downside of the place. Definitely more of a hotel bar vibe than a place to sit down to a dinner. Nice for a cocktail but that's about it.
If you think this restaurant might not be a comfortable atmosphere, you are wrong. Loved it… view of the water, outside dining with heaters, menu with a little bit of everything and great service by Dani!
Graduation celebration. There were several drunk patrons. Alcohol was continued to be served despite them falling down multiple times by the bar. Had to apologize to my guest. It is irresponsible for the bar to not provide some oversight to what is going on in there premises. I will never come again because of the lack of ambiance.
Greatly enjoyed this restaurant. Beautiful roof top dining. Excellent service. All staff very attentive. Waiter found additions to drink menu one person requested. We all enjoyed our meals. Top dish: linguine with clams; nicely spiced sauce and plentiful whole clams beautifully presented. Thank you!
Food was great, staff was sweet an accommodating, pretty view from terrace. Highly recommend!
Server was very unhappy I don’t think she likes her job
Excellent location overlooking the Newport Harbor. Food and drink very good.
Host at the door with attitude. Items on the online menu not available. Still tried to make the best of it, then the outdoor heaters came on and we were cooked. Sad.
The service was super slow for have few people eating there. The food was good and worth the price.
The food is good, the wait staff is very nice but they still have a problem with their management. They don't appreciate return customers.
Perfect place to have lunch, brunch or meet up with friends. The food is good, service is excellent and the price reasonable.
Awful! Shrimp and chicken wings were under cooked. Calamari was very oily. Fish was overcooked and dry.
Bartender was very attentive. Menu felt to have limited options, however Highly recommend shrimp tacos. Sangria was delicious too!
It was ok. We were put in a separate dining room for overflow because they were overbooked. The service was ok, the food and drinks were ok (blueberry lemonade cocktail was very good).
