Today is National Lobster Day! In Newport, Rhode Island, aka the City-By-the-Sea, we love lobster! Here are just a few of our favorite spots to enjoy a lobster meal in Newport.
Straight off the Boat - Aquidneck Lobster Company is located in the heart of downtown Newport on Bowen's Wharf. You can buy live lobsters or they will cook them for you and you can plan a picnic. And new this year, the Lobster Bar, offers dining right at the dock. The lobster is fresh off the boat and the view of the harbor is awesome (see below)!
Narragansett Bay View - With so many picturesque locations in Newport it is hard to pick the best! Here are two of our many favorites.
Pineapples on the Bay - It has a casual atmosphere with lobster dishes like Lobster Quesadillas and Lobster BrieLT Sandwich. Most nights there is live music and an unbeatable view of the Newport Bridge. Bring your flip flops!
Castle Hill Inn - Eat outside on the lawn to experience the full view. Keep an eye out for our 12 Meter yachts sailing by, make sure to give us a wave!
Newport Beach View - Spiced Pear at the Chanler. Located overlooking Easton's Beach this is where you eat "fancy" lobster! It's a bit of a splurge but perfect for a special occasion.
On the Water - Sailing on a 12 Meter yacht in Newport, of course! No we don't make you haul your own traps! McGrath Clambakes offers "Bakes to Go" that let you bring your lobster sailing. Complete with bibs and crackers Bakes to Go are perfect for a lobster picnic on a boat.
