Went in here every night during a recent work visit to New Bedford. It's s really friendly bar & had live music one evening, live sports on TV's the other nights. The chicken wings are top notch & we ended up having these every night too. They also have an extensive list of good craft & IPA beers on draft,... More

I visited here for the first time this week (longtime New Bedford Native here). The question I ask myself is...why did I wait so long? The food was great. I had the fried pickles and fish tacos. Fries were really delicious, too which is very important to me! Lots of beers on tap. Unfortunately I kicked the keg of the... More

Breakfast is served only on Saturday mornings, but it's worth the stop. They serve a full bar and have about 10-12 choices from the food menu. The food is always good, and the staff is awesome.

Went here for lunch based on our hotel's recommendation. It is not much to look at from the outside..we almost didn't go in. Glad we did. The atmosphere is casual and there are lots of TV's to watch sports. The fish and chips was excellent and the drinks were strong. Good portions, great prices but service was just ok

Great place to go and try some new beers. Wide variety of taps and cans/bottles to choose from. Common every day beers as well as out of the box new types you may be interested in trying. The wings were great! Many flavors and sauces to choose from. It was a real surprise to me to see the steak tips... More

...a great lunch can be had within these rather plain, if not ugly walls. The clam chowder is stellar, full of chunks of clam and thick, The choices of local, craft beers are good and can complement whatever one orders from a fairly typical pub menu for this part of the world.

Went here after dinner on friends suggestions, I was very impressed, if I still lived in New Bedford this would be my local hangout. Its not that large of a place, but its one of those that I can tell everyone knows your name. We only had after dinner drinks, but very accommodating there was a band, not too loud... More

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.
