One of the best seafood meals I’ve ever had. The lobster Reuben is next level - one of the best sandwiches in the country hands down.

Melanie was a great, very attentive server!

My daughter and I had lunch there recently. She had the fish tacos and I had a salad with Cajun salmon. Both were generous portions and delicious. The server was very pleasant and efficient. The tables were set far apart from each other in accordance with pandemic protocols.

The salad & soup bar was sorely missed (Covid). Our waitress was great as were our drinks. Food was solid, always good, never have had a bad meal here.

Brick Alley never fails! Food was really good, served by a friendly waitress. We got the ultimate nachos for the table, a few of us got burgers and others, sandwiches. All were cooked correctly to order. Fries excellent. My "Bob W" expresso martini the best. Potent!

This was our first visit during the Pandemic and it won't be our last. We felt very safe, protocols are being followed closely. Our server Christine was very attentive and kept the mimosas flowing. The food was impressive - get the short ribs (delicious and a huge portion)! We also enjoyed the ahi tuna wontons for an appetizer.

Always a great atmosphere here. We are locals and have been in the brick many times but we were disappointed this time. Fish and chips was very dry and overcooked. Our service was average at best

The three of us "only" had burgers, but all were excellent, including the fries. The seared tuna sliders app was really great too.
My only concern was that we had heard restaurants in Newport were supposed to be serving at 25 % capacity due to covid. To be sure we got a table, we made reservations a week or more in advance. However, almost every table had people at them when we were there and anyone who walked in was given a seat.
The place was clean, as were the restrooms...

We always dine at Brick Alley when in Newport. Cup clam chowder and French onion soup to start. Delicious! Hubby had the Short rib dinner! I had the baked scallops! Always delicious! We also had our annual Cosmos!! Our waiter was a very nice young man. Sorry I forget his name. But he made sure our dining experience was perfect. Definitely try drinks and eats at Brick Alley!!!

We have been going to the Brick for over 15 years. This visit was the worst service we ever had. We were able to sit at the bar and the staff acted like they didnt want to be there. It was a once in a long time experience but I did need to note it.

My family and I were in Newport for the week and were looking for something a little more casual and inexpensive than some of the other hot spots on the island... this did not disappoint! Not only was the food AMAZING, but the service was even better! Our waitress was so friendly and outgoing and truly made us feel welcomed. The bartender also made a MEAN spicy margarita which was *chefs kiss*. Thank you for having us Brick Alley!

It was great but we did have a fight breakout at the table behind us but it’s ok our waitress stepped in and took care of the problem. Great service in more ways than 1!!! Would definitely go back.

Can't go to Newport and not order fish. Got the scallops baked in white wine, sooo good! Scallops were cooked perfectly. Also recommend for a fun Fall drink, the Pumpkin Mudslide; makes the perfect dessert!

Don’t do it! This is one of those places that survives due to location and transitioning tourist populations. The appetizer and lobster bisque were pretty good. The wings were terrible...they were WAY over done, chicken Parmesan was below average, nachos were just ok and the shrimp pizza was excellent. We ordered dessert and the server said there was no menu just brownie sundae, apple crisp or cheesecake. Ordered 2 brownie sundaes....full of nuts. Seemed like she should’ve mentioned that. We are some of it because we’re not allergic just hate nuts in dessert and there were tons. Overall a very unfortunate and dissatisfying meal for $210 for 6 people. Service was less than great as well. Sat 10 minutes before any greeting, had to ask for refills, slow, etc.

Great atmosphere, decor and food options for a “pub restaurant”. Calamari app was great, plenty of local beers to choose from, and my wife and l both loved our burgers. Great classic rock playing and attentive service made it a worthwhile stop.
