Great stuffies (local name for stuffed quahogs with Portuguese sausage), rich "cream" clam chowder vs. tomato base. Service (Paul was our waiter) attentive and pleasant. Sometimes unusual for 2 women dining together.

My family and I have been here 3 times now when we have traveled from the Cape to spend time in Newport. We love the fun atmosphere and the food is consistently good. We love the French onion soup and the wings are good too....More

We usually visit the Brick Alley Pub at least once when we are in Newport. I enjoy the salad bar and the beef! The service is usually pretty good, but one can often wait for a long time for a table.

Great apps, beer, salad bar and meals at Brick Alley. Enjoyed Captain’s Daughter and the short ribs. Lobster roll a hit too.

This place bills itself as serving "Pub Style Comfort Food & Modern Multicultural Cuisine". However, I usually consider pub food to be greasy and bland - like everything was cooked together in the same oily skillet. This place is several steps (at least) above pub...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
