Just started working in New Bedford, MA and needed a sports bar so I could watch my Steelers on Monday Night Football. Anyway, the friendly staff at the nearby Fairfield Inn & Suites recommended the Rose Alley Ale House so I walked over there and hopped a seat at the bar (service at the bar is always better). As I'm... More

Love the beer selection which changes frequently. Lots of great pub food choices well done and some nice twists. The stuffed quahog is the best in the area hands down.

We had spent the morning at the New Bedford Whaling Museum near by and saw the Ale House from their observation deck so we decided to stop in for a little liquid refreshment and ordered calamari & chowda. Both were excellent. The lobster rolls were ok and our kids ordered fish tacos that they barely touched. I took the fish... More

Great pub spot with outdoor seating, great food and value, good drinks too. Been here numerous times, and the food is always excellent. Appetizers and pub food are great! 24-36 beers on tap....never leave this place disappointed unless you can't get a seat

Great draft brews, burgers, fish tacos, fish and chips, chowdah, sweet potato fries, and stuffed quahogs. Friendly service, relaxed atmosphere. Close to Whaling Museum and art galleries. Parking nearby, off the alley.

My husband and I came for dinner on a Saturday evening. We both had an outstanding brisket sandwich with fries and coleslaw. They were cooking the pig right outside in back. We frequently go on Saturday afternoons to enjoy the live music. They have a huge selection of draft beers. The service is friendly, the food awesome, and the atmosphere... More
