Anyone ever been? I'm trying to plan a dinner for work, about 100 people. They are considerably less expensive, so that's great....but kinda makes me wonder why as well.

    old-school newport - refurbished casino interior makes it worth a trip, if only just once, like the tennis hall of fame, it's great for the experience.

    compared to stuff like the neport restaurant group, the food's nothing to write home about - 'american' menu from a few deacdes ago with old standbys. big portions.

      Hmmmm, for a group as large as 100, that might be okay. Thanks for the tip!

        Nice atmosphere and service. I was not impressed with the entree BUT I did enjoy the Grilled Ceasar salad. a quartered head of Romaine lettuce grilled and served with the dressing poured over the top, much like a wedge salad.
