Good find in New Bedford

We found the Rose Alley in New Bedford after driving around and looking for another restaurant I had heard about. The other place was crowded and had a long wait. We drove back and parked near Rose Alley and got right in. It wasn't too busy at first but soon filled up with a work crowd and small... read more

Rose Alley is one of those rare and awesome local hangouts with great food and an amazing beer selection! AND the servers are amazing! Always smiling and calm, no matter how packed the place gets! Darby and Christina are so great! Love when they have early music (late afternoon to early evening). Burgers, fish tacos and so many other menu... More

This place has a bit of Cheers feel to it when you walk in. Brightly lit, very well maintained with polished wood floors and a bar that immediately rises up to greet you. The staff is friendly and very accessible no matter how busy, the view of the waterfront is nice and they always have a local sports team on... More

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.
