Description: At Brick Alley Pub we have it all: "pub style" comfort food to modern multicultural cuisine all served with genuine down-home hospitality. Like America itself, Brick Alley is one big melting pot of ethnicities, flavors, and fun. If you are looking for stiff, over the top formal service with small portions of over-priced food, we are not that place. After more than 30 years as one of Rhode Island's most popular restaurants with locals and tourists alike, the Brick Alley Pub & Restaurant has earned landmark status. Located at 140 Thames Street across from the Brick Market Place in Downtown Newport the Brick Alley Pub & Restaurant offers a warm and cozy fireplace in the winter and comfortably air-conditioned dining rooms in the summer. The Brick Alley Pub & Restaurant specializes in a blend of flavorful steaks, fresh local seafood, pastas, and seasonal specials. Begin your dinner with a selection from our cocktail menu or choose a wine from our extensive wine list. This wine list features over 250 different vintages and has received the Wine Spectator Award for Excellence. Open for lunch and dinner, Brick Alley Pub & Restaurant accepts reservations and offers an upstairs function room that can accommodate up to 170 people. The Brick Alley Pub & Restaurant has received favorable reviews from countless local and national publications including: The Providence Journal, Travel-Holiday, Ford Times, Rhode Island Monthly, and Newport Life Magazine. In addition, Jameson Irish Whiskey bestowed the restaurant with their "Best Irish Coffee Award" for three consecutive years and inducted the Brick Alley Pub & Restaurant into their Hall of Fame.

Great place for dinner! The entrees come with a buffet salad, but you can add it if your meal isn't an entree. There's something for everyone no matter what your tastes are. It was so difficult to choose something to eat.

Ordered fish tacos, came plain in big soft taco, no nothing on them. Very disappointed in that respect. The sweet potato wedges, however, were terrific. Service seemed like it could have been better, had to wait to get the bill, had to wait longer to pay it.

Most of the restaurants in Newport are geared to tourism, but the Brick staff was very friendly, the décor was a bit overloaded with memorabilia, but the main event was the food- it was all very good at reasonable prices.

If you're looking for a great sandwich place, this is it!!! Had an unbeatable burger...HUGE...with a mound of thick, crispy French fries. We also had the Lobstercado sandwich, which if you're looking for a taste of New England seafood, this was fabulous!!! Huge portions of great food!!! A 45 minute wait for an off season week night, but definitely worth... More

Place is part tourist and part locals joint. Nice atmosphere. Very helpful staff. Food was very good. We had a salad, a pasta and a salmon dish in our group and all were good despite being a little pricey for lunch.

We stopped here in the late afternoon. So accommodating. The choices are varied, and while we wanted a window table-they cleared it immediately and set it for us. We both had special dietary requests, but the waitress didn't bat an eye and made helpful suggestions--can't say enough about this place. The food is always great--and everyone is always happy and...

Excellent food & staff. Best lobster roll I ever had. They were accommodating to younger children, as well.

This place is full of décor. It is very busy all the time. We ate there for lunch during a holiday week and it was packed by the time we left at 1pm. The menu is huge and has a great variety of items from ribs and burgers to seafood. My husband had the lobster melt. The avocado with lobster... More

This is definitely a very popular establishment-the place opened at 1130am and already had customers waiting to enter. There is a wide menu selection with fun drinks, brick oven pizza-very good!, sandwiches, etc. The place has a lot of character and the decor is similar to the Hard Rock Cafe. Service was prompt. Our waiter wasn't overly friendly but the... More
