We have gone to Brick Alley several times over the years when we visit Newport. They have excellent Chicken Nachos. The staff are very friendly. Sometimes the wait is long because so many people go to this place, but it is worth the wait.

This is a large restaurant, great for families, a huge menu, something for everyone. It is almost always crowded so prepare to wait. Also the tables are close so don't plan on having intimate conversations! There are a few booths if you are lucky enough...More

Nice salad bar & generous entree portions. Great brie/apple bruschetta & the lobster bisque was tasty. Their lobster mac & cheese had many large chunks of meat & the burger was thick. Our leftovers were enough for another meal the next day. Good atmosphere inside...More

Their lobster salad was sensational. I didn't want the roll, and so ordered a side salad with the lobster. The portion was enormous...their side salad being more like a main salad and the lobster salad portion was really generous. Yum!

This place was recommended by owner of Cupcake Charlie's. He did not steer us wrong. The lobster roll was superb and the decor could keep you busy for hours. There are so many photos and memorabilia on the walls that it is pure entertainment. Our...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

I do not think so. I suggest you call to check. Weekends are pretty crazy but if you are a couple or small party you can sit at the bar and order from the regular menu.
