The Lawn Terrace

An Al Fresco Dining Experience

Savor New England coastal specialties at The Lawn Terrace, featuring unparalleled views of Narragansett Bay and beloved as one of the most enjoyable Newport restaurants on the water. In warmer months, alfresco dining is offered on our terraces overlooking the rolling lawn. As fall and winter approach, we offer the same casual, a la carte menu indoors in the comfort of the main Agassiz Mansion. For decades, locals and visitors alike have savored our take on regional cuisine, fresh seafood and cocktails that evolve with the seasons.

Terrace Bar
Sit and linger at The Terrace Bar, where the view is spectacular and the food and drinks always flowing. Order from The Lawn Terrace menu, with all the sips and bites you might be craving, from blueberry lemonades to sunset palomas, to native oysters and grilled flat-iron steak. Open 7 days: 11:30am – 8:00pm daily for food and until 9:00pm for drinks.



Lunch: 11:30-3:30 outdoor seating reservable online and by phone, indoor seating by phone only
Dinner: 4:30-8:00 outdoor seating reservable online and by phone

Brunch menu is available on Sundays from 11:30 to 3PM.

Please be aware that all tables reserved for outdoors are weather dependent.  These tables do not have a backup space indoors!  In the event of inclement weather, we’ll call those guests to let them know that their reservations will be canceled.


As the summer season begins to heat up, take some time to enjoy it all and feast on a fresh-made Lobster Roll or Fish Tacos. Indulge in the bounty from New England farms with our Farm Inspired Salad or dive into some fresh raw oysters farmed by local harvesters. Finish your meal with something seasonably sweet like our homemade Strawberry Rhubarb Tart.
