By  |  0 Comments

Downtown restaurant experiences ownership shift, new name.

After seven long years, it appears that The Barking Crab (proper) out of Boston has cut ties with Barking Crab Newport and sent it on its way, unaffiliated. This has resulted in new ownership and a new name.

Newport, we present you…

the boat yard

The Boat Yard Bar & Grille

Find them on the web, on Facebook and in the Brick Market Place at 151 Swinburne Row in downtown Newport.

Looks like they’ll be opening March 7th, so don’t expect too much of a change initially.

UPDATE 9/20/16:


The Boat Yard is now closed.

UPDATE 6/30/17:

The location has now re-opened as…

The Backyard Patio & Grille

Backyard Patio & Grille Newport, RI

Check out The Boatyard website to see their menu, drinks and all that good restaurant info.
