The beer is flowing and some unique and tasty menu items are coming out of the kitchen at The Wharf Pub in Newport, Rhode Island. The Wharf offers a bunch of local and non-local beers on tap and by the can. I was happy to order a Wachusett Blueberry draft. There are also many wines to choose from.

You've got to order some tater tots at the Wharf. These aren't your ordinary tots. The Big Pen tots are wrapped in bacon with cheese sauce, scallions and BBQ sauce. Mmm. We enjoyed the Truffle Tots, which are tossed with herbs and truffle oil and served with black garlic crema for dipping. They are so good. Other apps include friend pickles, beef sliders, shrimp, wings and calamari. The Wharf also has a raw bar and seafood chowder.

There are several salads and burgers for lunch and dinner. Their grilled cheese made with Texas toast looks quite tempting. Some of their more unique entrees include BBQ pork mac & cheese, friend chicken & waffles, shrimp grits, and their Big Hoss Pork Chop. I ordered some pasta during this visit,  their Capellini al Fresca. It's served with a generous portion of shrimp, capellini pasta topped with shredded romano. Very tasty and filling.

Cheesecake and panna cotta are among the desserts. There are also several vegetarian and gluten-free options on the menu. 

The Wharf Pub is one of the newer restaurants in downtown Newport and Eat Up New England is already a fan! I'm looking forward to sitting out on their back deck when the weather warms up.
