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.

Went Back For a 2nd Visit!

We went to the Brick Alley Pub on a recommendation and ended up going there a second time because we enjoyed our first visit so much. Great atmosphere and great food and at a reasonable price. It's hard to beat. Nice selection of beer and hard ciders also. I highly recommend the French Onion Soup!

Had lunch here and whenever you have to wait a few minutes on a weekday, that usually means it's popular for a reason! Great food, service was excellent and quite a substantial menu. Family -friendly and great memorabilia to look at all over!

Our second time here, visiting Newport. Brick Alley was a must do on our list, it's so awesome. Casual atmosphere with delicious food. The machaca nachos are packed with flavor. The nachos are topped with 8 hour slow cooked seasoned shredded beef. They are so delicious and filling! This visit we just got apps, because we ended up wasting our... More

The restaurant is huge and the menu very diverse. Honestly props for there meal descriptions but the actual product does not match the prices. My husband got the steak frites, it was a super small yet fatty sirloin over fries, needed A1 and it was a 30$ meal. I got Mikes Portugease Clams over linguini, the favor was good but... More

This restaurant is a winner for all the reasons noted in the title, plus the prices are very reasonable and the atmosphere is fun. My party was impressed with the amount large servings and the salad bar, with soup, is really very good.

A little on the pricey side but: 1. Friendly and helpful staff 2. Food a little pricey BUT you get more than you can possibly eat with just the entrée.

Go early! No waiting. Menu is huge, with lots of options. They even have an all you can eat soup and salad bar. My college student loved that! The Portuguese Kale soup at the salad bar was delicious. It tasted home made. The tuna was possibly the best I had in years. Stuffed shrimp was tender and buttery. The apple... More

Even in the middle of a midweek afternoon this pub was very busy. We only had time for a drink but there was a good atmosphere but not a lot of room to be seated. We had a couple of beers, Nangasett Lager and Newport Amber Ale, which were both good. The food being served looked good and the prices... More

We had a birthday dinner, for 10 people, here last week and it was very good for a large family meal. Portions were very generous and the staff was super attentive. Everyone loved their dish.
