THANK YOU for your patience and support while you navigate this new dining experience with us. We’re incredibly thankful for your patronage and appreciate your help to get back to “normal” as soon as possible!

We're going back to our old, normal ways! Starting Monday, June 1st, we will no longer be taking phone reservations and will go back to accepting walk-ups (first come, first serve) only for our outdoor patio!

We will still be requiring the party's full name and phone number for contact tracing initiatives.

Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted at this time :(

Please avoid waiting or congregating on the sidewalk. Mandatory 6ft. social distancing at all times. Facial coverings must be worn at all times with the exception of eating and drinking.

Welcome to O'Brien's Pub


Dog-friendly O’Brien’s Pub is located in the fifth ward district of Newport, Rhode Island and has been operated continuously since 1945. Our current operation was established in 1979 and has continued to be a local favorite among Newport residents, tourists and furry friends alike.


O’Brien’s Pub is open 364 days a year and is available to host large functions and special parties. In summer months, the outdoor garden patio has grown to seat over 175 customers and dogs and is an enjoyable place to meet for cocktails and to sit for lunch or dinner.


Children are typically kept busy at our outdoor play fish fountain located in the center of the patio, and your furry friends are also welcome! In winter months, the fireplace inside adds warmth and coziness to the pub. During day time hours, video games, pool tables and our TV’s offer entertainment for all ages!
