I had the lobster roll and mashed potatoes, both of which were fantastic. The bun was one of the best I’ve had while GF. Our server was very knowledgeable and brought my food out first so I knew it was safe. Their fries are not GF due to CC but the mashed potatoes are so good I didn’t miss them.

Great experience here. My server was well versed in GF options and told me that they have a separate location where my food would be cooked; she allowed me to make substitutions without question. The spinach artichoke dip is GF & delicious- had it with GF toasted bread that they delivered separately. Will return!

GF items marked on menu, educated on CC issues. Salad dressings labeled GF on salad bar, but placed next to gluten contains ones? ☹ Spinach artichoke dip amazing & scallops were some of the best I’ve had. Atmosphere is fantastic- old school New England waterfront! Fantastic bar- love this place!

I'm a Newport local and have been going to Brick Alley since before I could walk. I absolutely love this restaurant and they're menu is extensive. That being said, I was slightly disappointed with the small number of gluten free options. I'm not a huge meat eater and I felt that most of the GF options revolved around meat and veggies, no bread or chips of any kind and they also don't have a dedicated fryer. However, the pizza I ordered was totally celiac friendly and was super delicious. I had also never thought to try spinach and artichoke dip with veggies instead of chips, but I think I actually prefer it that way!

Very accommodating. Plenty of waiting room at 2 bars (upstairs and down). Food was okay. Four stars because I appreciate the effort they made with GIG training to make it safe for Celiacs.

I feel pretty neutral about this place. On the one hand, my waitress was knowledgeable and I did not get sick, so that's a plus. On the other hand, the gluten free menu is pretty blah. "Sandwiches" without bread, salads, and a few expensive entrees (such as seafood and steak) minus various seasonings. I got the scallops (minus bread crumbs, mashed potatoes instead of French fries) and they were good...but other than that there wasn't much else on the GF menu that interested me. I felt safe eating here, but wasn't super impressed by the options.

The gluten free menu had a bunch of choices and the waitress was very aware of celiac and what was safe and what wasn't. I enjoyed my first lobster "roll" since being diagnosed celiac. Felt like a Rhode Islander again. It's pretty loud in here and definitely busy but the food and service were good.

Brick Alley was very good, the staff was extremely knowledgeable and they have a separate GF menu! One of the few places with sweet potato which is an added bonus for me! Once they add GF bread/rolls they will be 5 stars!

GF menu is essentially steak and salad. No real GF options for people who want a meal. The soup is almost never GF.

I have to say I am shocked Brick Alley is GIG Trained! Waitress was not fully educated. Just had a family dinner there and I am quite sick. Had the Roasted chicken with garden salad. Tasted great, apparently it was cross contaminated. This is my first time getting so sick. Brick Alley was my home and fab restaurant for 25 yrs. Once diagnosed can't say I have even enjoyed it. Was nice to see that they developed a gf menu. Very limited and there is nothing to interest me to return. Five of us are Gf in our family, I am the most sensitive. Looks like I will need to contact the manager. Have to say even if they offer a gift certificate,. I will not return there. BEWARE. Will take several days to recover from this one!
