We came by for dinner on a week night, there were only 6 other occupied tables and a few folks at the bar. We thought they may have been a bit understaffed, or not deplyed well as it took a while for anyone to get to us for drink and then meal orders. Long wait for our meals and the... More

Very nice place - we stopped in for a drink and to catch a little of the game - bar tender was very friendly. Very nice inside - drinks were made perfectly - we didn't eat there but would definitely go back and try it out

We stopped into the Gas Lamp for dinner after a day of touring. We were seated quickly, our server arrived approximately 5 minutes later ready to take our drink order. I ordered the grilled salmon. My other guests ordered the Spicy NE clam chowder and a salad, and a pasta entree. The clam chowder was served in an oversized bowl... More

Ordered lobster pizza for $26 and the dough was soggy and only ate outside of pizza. My wife ordered mac and cheese for $14 and would have been better off with Kraft Dinner cooked in microwave at hotel.

This was our second visit to The Gas Lamp Grill. Service was friendly and fast. I had the warm pear salad with steak and my spouse had the apple walnut salad with scallops. Both salads very large, bursting with flavor. We have eaten at another pub near by, that has much higher ratings, however The Gas Lamp Grill is by... More

Wandered in for a little lunch after walking around Newport. We were seated quickly and the service was ok but the food was just average. Had the house clam chowder which was good but nothing special. The crab Rangoon appetizer again was good but not exceptional. The place was full of Patriots fans watching the game so it was a...

Had the tuna wrap and the pulled pork sandwich. Both are good but the cost is too high. You can do better elsewhere. I will say that their French fries are excellent. More like a chip

We were the only ones in the restaurant and yet we were constantly looking around for our server. No water nor did she ask. When our food came we never saw her again. Had to go to the bar and ask for water, our check and for our server. She came with the check and immediately came back for the... More

We recently visited on a Monday night. Service was a little slow but there was a large group there. I had the fish and chips it was good. My husband had the steak tips and they were awesome. Very tender and great flavor. If you go there order them!

Thank dobyflorida
