We were on a last minute trip to newort and have always had great food and wanted to try something new. From the outside this is a great eclectic looking place with a chalkboard menu and good service. When we got our food, there was no flavor and the sauces on the pasta were like water. The worst food we have had in newport and since moving to providence! Will not be back and would recommend that you spend your money elsewhere!

Pros: Great Atmosphere

Cons: No flavor in food

it had been a few years since my last visit and yes the quality has gone down, at least they're back to calling them french fries!

If you love seafood, you will love Scales and Shells. We have recommended this to many friends who visit from out-of-town and everyone has been delighted with the food and especially the price. Great seafood at a great price!

Served hot and fresh seafood in the same pan it is cooked in, # 1 for the seafood lover in you. Casual dining and relaxed atmosphere. Priced right. Place for foot traffic, on the main strip. I would recommend to out of towners who love seafood.

This is a casual open kitchen restaurant that buzzes with conversation and good times. Seafood is reasonably priced and is served often in the pan in which is was cooked.

I have been here more than once, never by choice, and each visit rivals the previous visit as the worst seafood dining experience of my life.

The only reason to go here is if you like your monkfish to have the texture of cheap calamari and the flavor of your paper-napkin. White tablecloths, no credit cards, but paper napkins?

If you are forced to go after reading this, prepare to yell (its loud), and bring a sweater or jacket to wear inside.

If you are in the neighborhood, there are plenty of other places to go for better seafood.
