We commonly go to Brick Alley for dinner and have our favorite dish there (steamers on the app menu) but tried something different this time- guess that was a mistake. The sirloin tips was more like sirloin chunks and instead of Demi glaze, it was in a heavy gravy. My husband got a burger, he says it was ok. The... More

Looking for a place to eat lunch on a very crowded weekend visit to Newport. Stumbled across this establishment only a short distance from a parking lot.Were able to get a seat at the bar while we waited for a table. Nice selection of beers on tap and bottled. The wait was less than 20 minutes which was good as... More

We we're looking for a restaurant that would have a full bar and good variety in food I was happy to get both, I had the seared tuna 9oz. Excellent if you like it, my wife had the braised short ribs moused and full of flavor, and to top it off they have a salad bar with soup, very good... More

Seafood here was great. Amazing clam chowder - if you do not like that salty of soups, this chowder is perfect for you. Salad bar wasn't the best with selections, but that is not the highlight of this restaurant. All entrees were perfect.

Don't recommend going on a Holiday Weekend. Food was terrible, seating way overcrowded, service was just OK. Stick to the salad bar if you choose to dine here.

This is one of our favorite places to eat when in Newport. The day was pretty cold and there was still a 45 minute wait at 2 pm so be prepared. The food is excellent and the wait staff are fabulous.

I ate here on a Saturday night, and as early as 5:00 there was a half hour wait, but the wait was totally worth it. Everything was really fresh and delicious. The salad bar was fantastic, and the dressings did not appear to come from a bottle. The bread was was fresh, light, and warm. The Cajun scallops were cooked... More

Never fails - the kids love it here - Wings - Soup and the parents can order a cocktail! Right in the middle of everything - always open, always busy (but plan a head and it is not a problem)!

Great place for lunch. My husband and I were there for a late lunch and although it was crowded, we were seated in a timely manner. The staff was extremely courteous and kind. My husband had the gourmet burger and I had the crispy chicken BLT. Both meals were delicious. The pub is central to the shops and a short... More
