Have tried to eat dinner several times but there was always a long, long wait. Was in Newport this past weekend during winterfest and walked by the Brick Alley at noon, no line so we decided on an early lunch. Very glad we did. Seated right away. Drinks, two different Sangrias, were both delicious. Plumbys crispy chicken sandwich was the... More

Very good food. Very good waitress, even though she was overloaded. Clam chowder was pretty good. I might go back here again sometime.

We went based on the burger reviews. Was looking more for a pub atmosphere and found a very loud, hectic restaurant. The pub area upstairs was closed. Waitstaff very nice and accommodating. Burger was very tasty but needed a roll that could stand up to the delicious large patty. Would definitely try again but knowing restaurants was more family-oriented.

My family Fof five enjoyed our experience and meal at the Brick Alley Pub. I ordered the Ahi Tina Salad and absolutely loved the fried wontons, tuna and dressing. My husband and son ordered burgers and raved about them. Our waitress was great and the overall service was quick and attentive. Our kids loved all the neat signs, memorabilia and... More

This place was recommended by a couple of different people. We went there for a late lunch and there was a wait to get in. After getting our table we had prompt service. The food was average, nothing special. Not sure why it was recommended by a couple of different locals.

The food here (jumbalya and braised short ribs) were fantastic, and service was good. Atmosphere is pub-like: crowded (lots of elbow bumping) and noisy. The decor is in search of an identity. Football helmets, old license plates, and a rowing skull are just part of it. If you're a "foodie," you can't go wrong here.

We stopped by on a Sunday afternoon and were seated quickly. My husband ordered the lobster roll and i ordered the fish tacos (with a lime instead of a lemon). The tacos were amazing! They were so good that my husband stopped eating his lobster roll just to eat my food. The fish was fresh and large portion so 2... More

We stopped by for lunch on a busy Friday afternoon, we were a bit hesitant after not the best experience for dinner. So glad we went back. The lunch food was excellent! Fish and chips as well as a burger were all great and portions were large enough to share. We could have gotten one lunch and easily had enough... More
