Combining its very good location in the heart of a historic district with the character and atmosphere inside, the Rose Alley Ale House is a great place to relax and imbibe in a beer or two. Very personable bartender, extensive draft beer selection, and good quality pub/bar food. The multi-colored glass beer mugs hanging over the bar area is a... More

Located In the heart of the whaling district in historic, downtown New Bedford, across from the Martha's Vineyard Ferry, I found this Gem! I visited Rose Alley on Saturday night after dinner with friends at Fathom's Bar & Grill (which I highly suggest at 225 Pope St). The décor, lighting, bar and flat screens make this place very welcoming and... More

Stopped in here for some beers and dinner. The location was picturesque and the outside of the building was very inviting. The seating is a little slim, but the beer and food were very good. The burgers were fabulous, fries and onion rings were delicious too. The steak tips were good. Would definitely come back again, maybe more for apps... More

In the heart of the whaling district in historic, downtown New Bedford, we had lunch on a Friday at this great old sports bar. While some of the décor such as original wood paneling, was retained, the restaurant was completely updated with many flat screen TVs and a great bar. Still , walking into the stark, stone building that is... More

While driving back from vacation on Nantucket, my husband and I decided to Google restaurants in New Bedford as we were driving by-needless to say we were quite pleased with our experience here! The buffaque wings were something I had never had anywhere else (regular buffalo were good as well), and the onion rings were to die for. The server... More

An historic old bar dating back to the whaling era, it was restored and brought up to date a few years back, and it is... More

After having a so-so experience my first time in, I was fortunate to experience a 360 degree turn on my second. Friendly, attentive staff, prompt service, meal was prepared and served quick and delicious! I tried the "rose-ambique" and loved it. Great job this time! I'll be back.
