Enjoyed a few pints and apps with friends. Band was playing and made for an enjoyable afternoon. Reasonable prices, great food and great service.

When Rose Alley first opened, I felt I had found a small bit of heaven right here in New Bedford. Fantastic beer selection, great atmosphere, and simple but fantastic food. Service has always been slow, (sometimes painfully slow, don't bring the family), but with that kind of beer menu and good friends, you'd want to spend some time there anyway.... More

I came here in 2010 and the food was wonderful, they had a bacon blue hamburger that was just wonderful, since then they took that off the menu. Also there beer was better, they were known for having unique beers, like cream brulett, chocolate stout and assorted fruity beers. Also really good malt beers. Now its more commercialized with less... More

this is a gastropub. The food I tried was excellent. Some nights they have live music. I recommend the spicy chicken wings - med hot to hot, not the death defying ones, though you can ask for a small cup of the hottest sauce on the side...recommend trying with a toothpick. Located in the historic district of New Bedford.

Seating is limited in this little bar, but if you get a table, get yourself some wings! Tons of beers and different cocktails available for all discerning tastes. Their food is great but can be a bit slow on busier nights. Their wings are great. I only wish they had an outdoor area!

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
