Great pub near the water

Excellent selection of beers on tap. Nice menu, a cut above typical bar fare. The lobster roll is to die for!

We went in on a Saturday night, the place was busy but most folks were drinking their dinners. We got several orders of wings, both traditional and boneless. The wings themselves were very good, my gripe was that it took nearly 45 min for our food to come out. If the service improved this place could be great.

Had lunch here Saturday with the family and it was pretty quiet. That said, I would not recommend this place for families with small children and there is no children's menu. Our son is older. Service was great and the fish tacos were fresh and delicious. This place has a great beer selection with beers I've never heard of. Lots... More

We were trying to decide where we wanted to have dinner, Cork or Rose Alley. Coin flip and Rose Alley won. Basically pub food, not bad but not super good. My husband has to try the clam chowder every restaurant that offers it, and this was no exception. He said wasn't as good as the one at Sail Loft. He... More

If you are looking for a great place with a wide variety of beers... Look no further than RAAH. Great selection of local(NE) beers, with better than average food. The wings are very good, with a wide selection of sauces. They range from tasty to fire!! If in the downtown New Bedford area, and looking for a place to eat... 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

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 groups of... More
