Good Chowder restaurant near Newport Rhode Island

I will be in Newport RI and am looking for a good New England Clam Chowder, and possibly lobster dinner. Not looking for a fancy, more like something Guy Fieri would go to. Big and good/

      We did a food tour through Pikes Place Market in Seattle. One stop served Clam Chowder which they said was the second best in the US. They told everyone that the best Clam Chowder in the US was at the Black Pearl in Newport. Can't get a better recommendation than that.

        I must agree with the above posters. Black Pearl has the best clam chowder hands down!!!

    2. Anthony's in nearby Middletown, RI has very good clam chowder and to make it better for you, Guy Fieri ate there.
