“Mutt's is a great beach bar/restaurant. It's actually my husband's favorite spot. Usually not super crowded at night, it's hopping during the day. The whole menu is great from the pizza (my husband's favorite), to salads, sandwiches and even breakfast. And they serve schooners of beer. You can't go wrong here.”

“A fixture of Newport Peninsula since 1912, with live music of local as well as traveling acts. Burgers & steaks & great weekly specials (e.g. Monday 1/2 off NY Steak, Tues: 2for1 Burgers, etc.). A unique charm, especially compared to other spots in the area. 3rd story patio is a great place to catch the sunset & have a sundowner.”
