    Warm & cozy, crackling fireplace - the perfect place to be in Newport in wintertime! Great service, delicious food - and the bar pours generously.

    If you want to have the perfect meal that I would have over and over again, order the crispy Brussels sprouts, the crispy duck and spinach salad, bread pudding and a nice bottle of Sauvignon blanc.

    Been here 10+ times
    Top menu choices: Steak Frittes, Salmon & gnocchi, the burger (hands down the best burger I've ever had) & the lobster mac & cheese. Also cran-apple crisp and berries & dark choc are awesome desserts.

    Perfect evening sitting at Jackie O's! Table. Service was as incredible as the food: oysters, duck scotch egg followed by the best beef Wellington w/foie gras mousse inside + perfectly seared scallops

    Special place. Oldest tavern in the country. Warm and cozy interiors. Order locally sourced products on the menu. Oysters, scallops, Brussels sprouts were standouts.

    Sit by the fireplace in the winter. I love that this is the oldest tavern in the US. Fish was delicious, along with lobster bisque. Clam chowder isn't creamy like you would expect, more brothy.

    Very cozy with a large old fireplace. Romantic candlelit tables and very quiet. Beef Wellington was amazing. The Lobster Mac'n Cheese was good but I didn't care for the crunchy garnish on top.

    Sautéed calamari is a bomb! Very cute patio that is pet friendly. Chicken fried sandwich pretty solid.

    Every item we had was terrific, but I found their clam chowder, NE Cheese sampler and butterscotch bread pudding all especially great! Service was top notch as well.

    Love the cozy colonial feel here, especially on winter afternoons and nights. It takes me back. Better lunch menu and prices than dinner.

    Have a house old fashion or a proper Guinness and you will be pleasantly surprised with the company of the bartender. The friendliest guy ever.

    Historical building with interesting high end menu but the servers are very bizarrely rude. Get a reservation or don't even bother.
