Located in Graystone Plaza, this is the Original Newport Family Restaurant.

A dining original for over 30 years.

When Maria and her husband Sam opened the Newport Family Restaurant in 1982 their goal was to provide wholesome, flavorful meals for the working family. Times may have changed, but not the quality and value of the food. Come in with your family and friends. Enjoy a meal cooked to order with a reasonable price to match. Order one of Maria's weekly specials - but come in early, they don't last long!

Maria is an immigrant from Rome, Italy. She move to Toronto, Canada and met Sam who was an immigrant from Greece. Both of them came from humble beginnings in their countries and immigrated to North America for a better way of life. Eventually they found themselves in Wilmington, DE and in 1982 began Newport Family Restaurant. Sam passed away in 1987 and Maria has been running the restaurant on her own ever since.

Over the years a loyal following of regulars has developed. We love serving them everyday! But we're also honored to have occasional VIP visits. Senators, governors, Vice President Biden and his wife, and even singing legend Johnny Mathis have all dined in the restaurant!

Maria makes homemade crab cakes, cole slaw, potato salad, chili (which is the best ever) rice pudding, and much more! Have some some fresh salsa with your omelet. While breakfast is one of our favored meals (it's served all day) there's a wide variety of home-cooked entrees to satisfy most any appetite.

To keep our costs down we keep it old school: Cash only, please.
