I didn't expect much because of the name and I was looking for seafood. However I ordered clams that came in an amazing broth and were the best I've ever had. And then ordered the Cajun scallops and again amazingly prepared and fresh and the best I've ever had. As I looked around I saw a great-looking dishes and smiling... More

Such a busy location but great food and great service. You may have to wait a bit because it's so popular but the food is worth the wait.

The menu clearly states their fish and chips are not beer battered, but I was willing to try something new. Although deep fried, the fish seemed a little dry to me and whatever type of coating used, gave a rather bland taste. The french fries and salad were just fine. The rest of our group thought their dinners were excellent,... More

We stumbled upon this little bar and had the greatest bar food ever! I love how it had an Irish feel to it and also served Irish fare. The Irish food is pretty close to what is served in Ireland! Also, it had pretty interesting drink menu!

My companion and I spent the day in Newport. We came across the Brick Alley Pub. It was inviting and the menu was appealing. We stepped in and were seated quickly at a corner table for two. I love New England Clam Chowder. I have tried many chowders since I spend my summers in Maine. I can say i have... More

We've been here many times in the past but today we stopped in for an appetizer only because we arrived in Newport late in the day. We split an order of Nacho's with beef brisket. Let me say that I'm glad we didn't order anything else to share because it was plenty for us to be eating later in the... More

We not only ate there once on our trip, but made a second stop because the food and atmosphere were both excellent! We can see why this is one of the best restaurants on TripAdvisor and believe me you won't be disappointed! We ordered the delicious lobster roll and believe me it was delish! We both had some drinks. I... More

After a hot summer day visit to Newport, we were in need of a place to cool down and have some lunch. I looked on TripAdvisor, as I always do, to find a good spot near by. We were able to park right across the street so decided to try out the Brick Alley Pub. It was very busy due... More

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.

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.
