The Pier Restaurant - Newport RI - Is it worth a visit?
We went to The Pier Restaurant on Monday even9ng. The meal, the atmosphere, and the service was excellent. We would highly recommend the restaurant to anyone visiting the Newport area.
My wife had the fried clam dinner. The batter was light, not a bit greasy, and the clams were sweet and tender.
I had the “Pier Platter” (baked codfish, stuffed shrimp and bay scallops). The fish was light and flaky; the stuffed shrimp was rich and buttery; and the bay scallops were tender and sweet. Both meals came with a side of steamed vegetables and a choice of potato.
The service was excellent. Used dishes were removed at a comfortable pace, and the water glasses were kept filled. We will definitely return again.
