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

“Super place!!! Great comfort food!!! fun!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014 via mobile

If you're looking for a great sandwich place, this is it!!! Had an unbeatable burger...HUGE...with a mound of thick, crispy French fries. We also had the Lobstercado sandwich, which if you're looking for a taste of New England seafood, this was fabulous!!! Huge portions of great food!!! A 45 minute wait for an off season week night, but definitely worth it. We were easily entertained by the locals and restaurant ambience!!!

“Very good bar food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Place is part tourist and part locals joint. Nice atmosphere. Very helpful staff. Food was very good. We had a salad, a pasta and a salmon dish in our group and all were good despite being a little pricey for lunch.

“Comfortable food, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

We stopped here in the late afternoon. So accommodating. The choices are varied, and while we wanted a window table-they cleared it immediately and set it for us. We both had special dietary requests, but the waitress didn't bat an eye and made helpful suggestions--can't say enough about this place. The food is always great--and everyone is always happy and satisfied--large and small groups.

Excellent food & staff. Best lobster roll I ever had. They were accommodating to younger children, as well.
