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.

We went here several years ago and remembered it was very good so we thought we would return. We were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the service was good. The staff was friendly and helpful. Their seared tuna salad was great as was everything that our table ordered. If this is your first time in Newport or your 20th time - you must eat here. You will be glad that you did. The biggest surprise was their wings as they are broiled not fried - they were better than most fried wings - crispy and moist not over cooked. The pulled pork quesadilla and their salads were also enjoyed by others at the table.

I got the lobster mac & cheese which was delightful and filling. Being in New England, I had to get their clam chowder which I would recommend. Not as good as it is in Boston, but still great! The service was relatively quick and friendly.

Went on a Sunday after seeing a movie at Jane Pickens. Was pretty crowded but we were seated quickly. The burger I had was perfectly cooked as I ordered it medium rare (too often places overcook it). Everyone in our party of six enjoyed their food. The service was exceptional, our waitress was friendly, attentive and offered honest opinions.

This place was great! Amazing food and the staff were very friendly. The atmosphere was great as well. We were in town for the first time from CT. We decided to walk down the road and this place just looked inviting from the outside. We didn't continue to look for any other restaurants and we were glad we didn't. I had the pulled pork sandwich with a salad. The salad was so fresh. My mom had the mozzarella squares. Freshly made; not frozen. The food was amazing!

My husband and I frequent the Brick Alley Pub quite often in the summer. We love the salad bar and almost anything you order is delish! The wait can be long at times but well worth it and the area stores and little shops are a great way to enjoy the time. The only down fall is finding parking but a great place to eat and visit.
