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.

This is a spot that no matter the time of day, or the season the food is always good, the service is good, and a decent value for the price

This restaurant is deceivingly big, despite walking into a cramped, busy entrance to get to the hostess stand. We were promptly taken upstairs after maneuvering around the other patrons, and had a very nice server who was great...she had a great demeanor, and was very observant (she got me a refill before I had to ask!). Unfortunately, despite a very... More

We (my wife and I) don't get to Newport too often but when we do we always eat here. Great staff and great atmosphere. Huge menu with great selections. We had the spinach artichoke dip to start with and it is easily the best we've ever had. My wife had the soup and salad bar and I had the reuben.... More

Before checking in to our B&B, we stopped here for lunch based on the TA reviews. They were spot on. The eatery has atmosphere, excellent service (from Ashley), tremendous selection, and what we had was well prepared. My wife thought the chicken piccata was among the best she's ever had and I was happy with the no charge extras available... More

Wow! Brick Alley is always a favorite for locals and travelers but they added a new pork rib sauce this season that is delicious! The menu is varied and will meet many dietary needs, nachos are the best, but low carb people can select from a variety of fish and salad bar options. Always fun, always good. We are local,... More

The Brick Alley Pub had no problem seating our rather large group of 8 women. We had a late lunch with a large selection of menu items to choose from. Service was good, food was good, though portions were not especially large.
