Hubby and I needed a fun spot for dinner. Alley’s food was excellent and flavorful. The atmosphere was lively and packed with people enjoying each others’ company and a jovial St Patty’s night out. Service was excellent.
Definitely a local hang that’s spunky, loud, yet still quaint enough for a date.
We’ll be back!
food and service was very good. A little to dark as we could not see to read the menu.
Quite the gem! Amazing brunch spot. Staff is so amazing and friendly!
Always super friendly with very good service and food. A nice local consistent spot !!
We went specifically for the bottomless mimosa which are a great deal. The staff makes sure your glass is never empty. Service here is great even when they are at full capacity. I would probably stick to the breakfast menu for brunch. I had a chicken club sandwich that was not great, but my friend had eggs Benedict that looked amazing.
I’ll be back for sure. Always a good place for weekend brunch with friends.
The ribs are the best. The service is excellent. The prices are great.
Went here for brunch. I actually frequent this place for brunch about twice a month. They have Saturday brunch and Sunday brunch. Saturday’s are pretty quiet but Sunday’s are busy. They have a small patio, bar seating and tables. The inside is a bit dark. You can not beat the service! Everyone here is so nice. They have $10 bottomless mimosas and when you buy a meal and they always keep your glass full. Plus the food is really good as well. I’m obsessed with their cheesy potatoes! Overall as long as you aren’t looking for a fabulous patio or fancy brunch dining then this is definitely the spot for you.
Service was excellent.. all were courteous and pleasant
Great place to eat or have a cocktail in a warm comfortable ambiance. Service is great and prices are reasonable. They do have the best pour on the shore!
The Alley has great food and service!
Great food and fantastic service as always at the Alley!
This is a nice neighborhood restaurant, with a nice bar, generous drinks and good comfort type food of good quality. We eat here often with friends.
They didn’t have our reservation in their system, even though it showed on my account. This happened one other time there. (It’s never happened anywhere else.) They were willing to squeeze us into a small table, but we wouldn’t have been comfortable. It was also REALLY loud.
outstanding great !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Alley has dinner specials Mon-Thursday. Great value and food. The service is the best !
The Alley has great food and service! Monday night ribs are our favorite!
We've been to the Alley many times and are never disappointed in the food and service --both were excellent, as usual.
Fantastic BBQ Rib meal with great service and drinks that can not be beat.
Walking distance to our home along with the great service and food makes our new go-to restaurant. Angie was the perfect server and made great suggestions for both specials and cocktails. My wife had a pasta and steak special and I had the Porterhouse steak. Both were amazing.
We will be back!
If you're 50 and single - this is your spot
Always great! My favorite go-to place for an informal dinner.
Was up in the area and had past restaurant a few times and wondered how the food was there. Went on Open Table and it had good reviews. Made reservations and took the family. The service was awesome, great waitress. The food was delicious. My wife had to concede and tell me I made a good choice. Will eat there again when up that way.
We dine at the Alley on a regular basis. Always good food and service!
The service was slow and it was quite warm in the restaurant.
First time ever in years of using Open Table the restaurant had no record of our reservation. I showed the hostess my phone with the reservation and 35 minutes later we were seated. This is a very busy restaurant and while mistakes do occur other reviews have mentioned this problem. Food is good, prices reasonable, very noisy atmosphere but will return. Have been going there when in the area for the past 15 years!
My wife and I enjoy the Monday night rib special. The ribs are tender and fall off the bone. Comes with one side for $12. Excellent dinner salad as well.
Food and service were excellent. We appreciated the patio seating so we could bring our dog. They even have a dog menu. The cucumber margaritas are fantastic!
The Monday-Thursday specials are a great value! We love the Monday night ribs!
The Alley is such a comfortable, nice and cozy restaurant/bar for any occasion or not. It's like the favorite neighborhood place. Their saying "best pour on the shore" is true. Very nice and friendly servers and bartenders. It is casual dress yet dressed up parties come on all the time. Love this place!
Always great food and service at The Alley! Their specials are always special, too!
All the food is great with the exception of the Mexican food. The drinks are always great and the best service in town. I wish the patio had more ambiance and I would have had my son wedding rehearsal dinner there.
Great friendly atmosphere good food Definitely go back it's a great get together place
Great lunch, dinner and weekend brunch. We go about 3 times a month. Great Monday night ribs
Per other reviews I have read, the restaurant seems to have a technical problem with OpenTable reservations. Ours did not go through but hostess was great in accommodating us.
Portions are huge - you may want to split entrees.
First time with hubby and I thought the place was quaint. Love the dim ambiance and service was awesome! Didn't have cocktails but the bar was busy. Will have to go back to do brunch on the weekends.
Driven by this place for years and finally decided to try. Five star food and service without the price or crowd of your typical Newport restaurant. Friendly staff and laid back environment. More of a locals place. Easy park.
Went for a late Saturday breakfast, but ended up having lunch. Clean and nice place with fair service. Food took a long time to come out, then was pretty greasy. Someone in my party felt a bit dyspeptic the remainder of the day. I think it may be more of a late night place!
Was looking for a place that would be convenient to get together for a brunch
Found the Alley and the food was awesome and reasonably priced
About the only downside to this place was the noise level
Rather difficult to be able to carry on a conversation
Would likely be a better location for a couple or smaller party than 6
