Two couples wanted some comp for dinner and decided to eat here. We have been before and had no problems returning. Right along the lake, very popular spot with locals. Loyal customers who return frequently. Saturday night is, like many WI supper clubs, prime rib night. 2 of us had the large prime rib, 2 had the Bengali shrimp, one... More

Located on the shore of Lake Michigan with great views. Ample parking and easy handicapped entry. Menu for any tastes from lighter fare to full meals. Friendly staff and owner always on premises. Have a cocktail before dinner a large bar overlooking lake. During the summer there is outdoor Patio seating with live entertainment Fri and Sat night.

The food is great. So much to choose from. Even the picky eaters can find something here. In the summer stick around outside for live music. The views of the lake are breathtaking.

Newport Shores is a great place to see old friends while enjoying a very good fish fry on Fridays. Their burgers are also very good. They do a brisk business year round, and it can be a little difficult to get a table sometimes. They are right on Lake Michigan, and it is possible crashing waves could give your car... More

WOW! Fun - that's how I'd describe our first visit to Newport Shores. We were in Port Washington doing some shopping at Duluth Trading and Pear & Simple, just doing some pre-Thanksgiving sightseeing when we found Newport Shores by accident. We were driving along the water when we came upon Newport Shores - a quaint Wisconsin Supper club with spectacular... More

Newport Shores is a great local institution! Jeff, Buzz and Larry will take great care of you! Definitely try the Shake of the Day. Food is fine, view is awesome and ask John to see the special Wine list.

The owner is great - just mention his Facebook posts and you're in for some great deals. The menus online doesn't exactly match the in-house menu, but the food is still very good.

If you are in Pt. Washington, plan to visit Newport Shores. It is located near the harbor and has a wonderful view of Lake Michigan. Summer finds the restaurant busy with tourists and locals as well. While they are known for their perch, the menu features a variety of fish and steaks. But as an added surprise, ask John to... More

We discovered Newport Shores through Trip Advisor. We loved the casual outdoor setting (one can dine inside also) with picnic benches and music on a Friday evening. Both of us had the fish fry - very good and the chowder which was also quite tasty. Fun casual dining on a warm summer evening!
