- 1 Waites Wharf Newport
Lonely Planet review for West Deck
With lots of open-air seating at the end of a wharf, the West Deck attracts big crowds ordering bottles of beer from two separate bars. Most evenings you can find Rhode Island’s preferred form of entertainment – lame cover acts playing the tunes of stereotypical bands from the last half of the 1980s. The crowd ranges from young guns to dudes with overdeveloped retirement plans.
