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. Brick Alley has also been featured on The Food Network and is a favorite of Boston's Phantom Gourmet.

Great bar and grill!

Spent a great Saturday night with my BFF's. Very extensive menu, both entrees and appetizers. The variety made it hard to choose. House wines were fabulous and not over priced. My friends and I were able to talk to each other without struggling over noise. While it was a full house with a full... read more

Good food though busy and tight quarters. Staff is pleasant with up beat ambiance. Menu has a large selection, good portions. Price is comparable to all other restaurants in the area. A good place to hang and meet up with friends!

Definitely the best lobster roll south of Maine! Ahi tuna was an exceptional portion and prepared perfectly. Salmon with teriyaki and pineapple was tasty, just the rightful of flavored. Nachos could serve 2 for dinner easily and appetizers for 6. Portions were easily shareable and prices were on target for quality and volume. Would come back anytime!

The food and service here was very good. We had the potato skins as an appetizer which were very good. For our main meal the lobster mac n' cheese was delicious and a very large portion. The staff was very friendly and attentive. If you're in Newport and looking for good affordable food this is definitely somewhere you need to... More

Awesome atmosphere, big portions, reasonable prices. Very cool spot in the center of town. Had to wait for a table but it was well worth it. Great burger, very good nachos. Wife had the lobster on english muffin sandwich and loved it. Fries were OK. Overall great place and would definitely go back. Cheap drinks.

Every trip to Newport we must have lunch or dinner at the fabulous Brick Alley Pub. Food is outstanding and service is great. It's only slow service when they are slammed....so good things come to those who wait. It's worth the wait too. Haven't had a bad meal there in 14 yrs. So hats off the Brick Alley management and...

Stopped in for dinner on a cold Saturday night. It was crowded and we were told that there was a 15 minute wait for a table for 2, but we managed to get 2 seats at the bar within 5 minutes. On this night, they had a small, but interesting draft beer selection that includes 2 Dogfish Heads, 3 Newport... More

Great restaurant for both families and couples. Go in late afternoon 2-3pm for a seat. May have to wait but it moves quickly. Don't be fooled by the entrance-the place is huge. Food is great and prices are good too.

I have enjoyed the consistent performance of this interestingly decorated bar and restaurant for over twenty years. It is my go-to spot in that it has a reliably high performance in service, food and atmosphere. It is always clean. The food is well portioned, priced and flavored. It has a great variety of selections in what I would label American... More
