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.

At lunch on a Sunday, I wanted to watch the football game why my wife wanted a window. The hostess brought us to the perfect seat for both. The service was very good and the food excellent. The stuffed clams are some of the best I have ever had and I have had a lot of them. My wife had... More

Right in the heart of Newport. There were two things I did not like about it. It was too crowded. Guess I shouldn't complain about that but it is a small place and people were packed in like sardines. The second is the noise level. I can't hear a thing the others at my table were talking about. However, the... More

I had my favorite pizza in the world. Spicy Shrimp Pizza and my Husband had the fish tacos which were absolutely out of the this world. The spicy shrimp pizza was so simple, olive oil, garlic, spices, the shrimp cooked to perfection and just a enough bite to make your mouth warm. Wonderful atmosphere, excellent service. Probably one of the... More

Worth the half hour wait for a table. We ordered the lobstacado (lobster/avocado salad) which was great. Another in our party had the fish tacos. All delicious, and not the overwhelming portions of the "full dinner" menu options. Great drinks too -- we had Mojitos which were generous for the price.

Although this restaurant is set back from the piers, it is definitely worth the lack of scenic views. Spacious, large menu, friendly staff and the food is great. All at a great, low cost. Close to shopping to stop in and give it a try!

Title says it all. Good soup and salad bar, large menu, fun atmosphere. Really good GF menu... Though be warned, the table next to us said their GF entree was highly contaminated.

Went to Newport in July late at night from Naragansette. Great town, first time there. Used the Trip Advisor Mobil app to find Brik Alley. Got us completely lost this time (usually on the money). Got there just as they were closing but they were awesome and still took us anyway. We ordered apps and I had a burger. Food... More

Lunch at the Brick Alley Pub was part of our "Must-Do" list on a recent day trip to Newport. We went for the famous Lobster Roll, but when we discovered the Lobster Reuben on the menu...we decided to order that too. The Lobster Roll was yummy--but the Reuben was very scrumptious and imaginative! Portions and servings of lobster are generous,... More

We stopped by here for a beer and to relax for a while as we had done a lot of walking around all day. We had already eaten elsewhere prior to this so we were just going to enjoy a beer or two at the bar. It's a pretty cool place. The decor is really interesting and keeps you looking... More
