Extensive menu ranging from full meals including seafood, beef, chicken and much more. Great salad bar with soup. Generous portions! We recommend the salad bar, hamburgers and nachos and there lots of other choices, e.g., clams sautéed in their... More

Brick Alley Pub is one of my favorite Newport restaurants...food and atmosphere is great, although sometimes you do have to wait to get in.

Decor was a bit eclectic . No specific theme but the food was so good we went back the next day. I'm a picky eater so that means a lot coming from me. Even the soups were good and I don't usually eat soup

My wife and I had lunch here during our stay in Newport. The wait was almost 50 mins but our server was great to get everything going as soon as we sat down without feeling rushed. I had the steak wrap and my wife had the veggie burger. The French fries were excellent and the food was good as well.
