delicious food, awesome atmosphere – My boyfriend and I wandered into Buskers pub only because the italian restaurant was occupied by a wedding party. This was the first place I saw so we walked in. We went during restaurant week so I got the lobster bisque, duck with creamed spinnage and cheddar polenta, and bread pudding. The lobster bisque was phenomenal. Huge chunks of lobster! When the duck came out I was surprised that it was slices of the duck breast. I've always had duck looking like a whole duck with bone in. The duck was delicious despite the fact it was a little tough, and had a lot of the fat still on it. The spinnage and polenta were to die for. Its a huge portion, i couldnt finish my plate even though i wanted to!! The bread pudding was too much for me, because i was so full! But it was very very delicious with the baileys carmel sauce. My boyfriend is vegan so he had the veggie burger with fries. He says its the best veggie burger he has ever had! Everything here was awesome. Two days later we went back for brunch and I got the eggs bennedict with salmon, i forget the name of it. but it was really amazing as well. We will definitely be going back here whenever we are in newport again!

Classic pub setting, but food not that great – Went in on a Thurs. afternoon for lunch. Thought it would be delicious tried & true pub food, but it wasn't. The service was fine at least although I ordered shoestring fries but still got the Busker's. The chicken sandwich and the cheeseburger didn't come with any mayo, lettuce, tomatoe, onion, anything. The buffalo chicken sandwich barely had any buffalo flavor and didn't have any bleu cheese. Wouldn't go back. There are so many other good places around. It wasn't the worst place ever, but definitely disappointed.

Absoutly Awesome!!!! – This is the BEST Place in Newport. The food is great; The service is awesome, Great Bar Tenders. There is no better place to stop in for drinks, watch soccer (they have all the channels), football, Baseball, UFC, Hockey and everything else. Come Check it out, Have some food, drinks, listen to music I guarantee you will be impressed.
