Spent a lovely Sunday with my husband in Newport. Had a delicious brunch and even more delicious Bloody Mary's . The only unfortunate part was how we were treated by the staff. From the time we walked in the door to the time we left the staff fell all over some customers and not others, including us. My husband and... More

This is our second time here and we loved the food and ambiance and service! Whether is the dead of winter or in high season in August, the food is always delicious and the staff is so attentive and friendly. Don't miss this place in Newport!

If as and when in the vicinity of the Wharfs in Newport, stop by The Clarke Cooke House and sample their wares. Mine was a beer with friends though they havea good menu too. Drink selection is more than ample to pick some thing. Decore is heavy on sailing theme but this is a waterfront location in Newport RI so... More

From the outside this place is questionable (in the winter anyway). But so glad we took a chance. Fantastic atmosphere, service and food, the bar was super busy while we waited for a table but the barman was excellent serving many people at once - sorry didn't catch his name. We were only in town two nights, the first night... More

Fine Dining at its best. Amazing View any time of year - and absolute delicious food. Went for my birthday one year and had such super service. Love the Cooke House.

The oysters are perfect this time of year. The prime rib was a great piece of beef but the lobster looked great my daughter ordered. For desert you have to order one of the best in the galaxy..."the snowball from hell." The ambiance is well done and give you a great taste of Rhode Island.

We look forward to Memorial Day each year as a sign that the summer salad is available again at the Clarke Cooke House sushi bar until Labor Day. After 4pm, we share a pre dinner Summer Salad and a sushi roll as we watch the many tourists stroll by. The freshness of the crisp, crunchy salad and it's tangy Asian... More

We have been dining here for at least ten years but notice the last few years the quality of the cuisine is not what it used to be. Although the oysters were very good the shrimp appetizers were wet and soggy. We were wondering if they were frozen ? The tuna entree was ok but a bit tasteless and although... More

We had Thanksgiving Dinner at Clarke Cooke House. Seating was done promptly despite a packed restaurant. Dinner was delicious. Had the traditional turkey dinner and pumpkin pie. Tried their version of the New England Clam Chowder which I have learned is different from the Boston variety. It was different from what I'm used to but delicious. Meal was served warm... More
