We love Brick Alley. They make the best burgers. The ultimate nachos with lots of guacamole on top is one of our favorites. The corned beef ruben was very good. Their ice tea is tasteless. It was our only disappointment. They have good service and...More

Stopped in for lunch while out shopping, very busy pub, so always a good sign. I had the Sedona burger and my partner has a lobster roll. Both delicious. Great friendly service along with fab drinks and food. What more do you need?

Very good food and atmosphere. Can be crowded if a cruise ship is in port. We eat at the Brick 1111alley Pub most every time we are in Newport.

The baked stuffed shrimp and the service at The Brick Alley Pub are outstanding. I noticed that a lot of local restaurants in Newport, RI don't offer baked stuffed shrimp. Back in the day, the Viking Hotel had the best, but it's not listed on...More

Although the menu has a wide variety of offerings we chose the Unlimited Soup and Salad Bar. The soup of the day was a Posouli Soup with spicey pork! Delicious!!!

Two people, 5:30PM on a random rainy and windy Monday. Nothing less than an hour wait so decided to head down the street. Looked nice but will have to try another evening.

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
