Take the water shuttle here for a nice lunch. Staff was quick and friendly. Shark bites, yum. Fish tacos good too. Excellent beer recommendations for my husband. Super view from the outdoor seating. Good music flowing.

We stayed on the Ocean Romance Bed & Breakfast yacht on Goat Island. We recommend the Marina Pub for lunch or dinner. Friendly staff and good food!

We had drinks here and they were very good. The only problem I had was the very loud noise even in an outdoor bar. The smokers feel free to light up from inches away from the open windows.

Yes, you can walk on the causeway from Newport to Goat Island...There is a side walk and nice views of the harbor along the way.
