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.

We ordered the apple, balsamic and lettuce salad with lobster added. We were visiting for one week and ordered the salad 3 times! Other items on the menu were all quality dishes. On occasion, rack of lamb is available and we lucked out! Fabulous

Brick Alley Pub was suggested by our hotel and we really enjoyed the lobster cakes and Newport clam chowder. The atmosphere was lively for a Sunday evening.

It's one of those places that it feels cozy and your friends with everyone. Great beers on tap and the usual pub food with a Newport twist.

Heard about this place on trip advisor, traveling through Newport I figured this place had a big selection of reviews and I needed to try it! Well I'm glad I did, super friendly service and super good food! Large portions and the price isn't too shabby! I love the old decor on the walls, always something to look around at!

I have been to Newport many times and never missed a stop at the Brick Alley Pub. It is a must do when in Newport. The New England Clam Chowda is my favorite. Get the blackberry Sangria if it is available. They have a salad bar and great lunches.
