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.

“Great place to stop for lunch”
Reviewed August 19, 2014

I was in Newport just last month and although we've been here a million times we never went to this place, thinking it would be over crowded by tourists. It was busy but we got a table and ordered. The food was awesome and the service was incredible. Even better that the place was decorated in a fun pleasant way and the music was not too loud. Great place to go and will definitely go back, perhaps in the off season.

“Mother daughter vacation”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

We past by this restaurant the day before it was crowded so we went somewhere else. We decided to go a little earlier. We had a nice table the server was extremely pleasant he couldn't do enough for you. Our glasses were always full and he checked on us often. I ordered the buffalo tender salad it was delicious and a lot for the money. Had enough to take back to my room and ate it later. My daughter had an apple,cranberry salad i tasted that it was Delicious also. All the platters had a hugh amount of food on it. Food came out fast, the atmosphere was nice. Bathrooms were clean. Great place for adults and family to eat. I would recommend this Pub restaurant to anyone. I would definitely eat there again.
