Like America itself, Brick Alley is one big melting pot of ethnicities, flavors, and fun.

To begin with, the food was delicious. I ordered a pizza and was bummed I didn't get to go back for a second one. The beer selection they had on draft was wonderful, a lot of variety. To top it off, the staff was very friendly and welcoming.

Had a wonderful evening at the Brick Alley Pub. Went in for a pint of Guinness with friends and has such a good start in terms of service and ambiance that we stayed for dinner. I had the lobster ravioli with broccoli on the side. The meal was so large that I skipped the salad bar that was included. Service... More

Stopped in earlier today and had a very nice time. The food was good and the service attentive, but not smothering. The atmosphere is comfortable, too. I'll definitely stop in again.

For A Tuesday night this place was packed the food was delicious our favorite was at appetizer spinach and artichoke dip . The dip could be a meal in itself and a must try. Our meals were very good. The service was also very good. The brick alley pub will be our new tradition.

Pub food at its best. The lobster bisque was delish. The salad bar was huge and everything fresh. I had the fish tacos. Very tasty. And my husband had a jambalaya. Busy and energetic environment. Can't go wrong here.

Even though we've been visiting Newport for 20 years we just discovered Brick Alley Pub! It is consistently enjoyable - good food, relaxing environment, attentive service. Some of the best burgers ever!

Consistently good pub food. Love their nachos. Most recent visit I tried the lobster bisque - it was delicious. We always eat at the first floor bar and enjoy it very much. Excellent bartenders and we prefer the atmosphere at the bar rather than sitting at a table.

This place is centrally located, has a great atmosphere for couples or families and a broad menu selection. We had the chili (excellent), nachos (WoW) and pizza (so so) the burgers are also good and the place is fun, very popular. Just about everyone seemed to enjoy their food.
