We stop here about twice a year when in Newport. Great burgers, sandwiches, and beer. It is always very busy here all afternoon, but its never a long wait at the bar for a table.

Filet mignon with onions and garlic mashed potatoes was delicious. Steak was cooked perfectly and cut like butter. Cajun scallops were also delicious. The salad, soup and bread bar is an added bonus. Fun atmosphere and good service too. Definitely recommend.

Great place to begin or end your Newport visit. Been there several times, and always enjoyed the food and experience. Lobster Mac & Cheese should not be overlooked.

I really enjoyed this Pub! The food was wonderful and the staff was friendly. They have TVs to watch the games on. Go early if you want to be seated. They tend to fill up fast. I like sitting in the Bar. No wait.

I'm here for work maybe 3 times a year, and the Brick is a go to spot when you are looking to make everyone happy. Large menu does not mean mediocre food. They do seafood well, and the burgers and salads are pretty darn good...More

I would say yes! They have a large room on the back and rooms upstairs as well. I would request the back one if they can accommodate you as it would be easier access to salad bar and people in your party won't have to take... More
