    Great place!

    Great atmosphere, met us with a bowl of ice water for our dog, on the way out they gave our pup a little doggie bag with a few treats. Highly recommend checking it out if looking for pub food and beer with your pup.

    Most pup-friendly restaurant in Newport!

    We visited O’Briens on our last night in Newport and it was hands down the most dog friendly place on our trip. We walked in to see a handful of groups with dogs on the spacious patio, and we were easily accommodated when we asked to sit further away from the live music (our dog doesn’t love loud noises).

    The server brought her a nice big bowl of ice water, and though we didn’t peruse the “doggie dining” menu (we had just fed her), they also brought out 2 milkbone treats along with our human food.

    Everyone was super kind to us and our dog and we would definitely come back for that experience, plus the ambience and the food!

    Super Dog Friendly Place

    I was traveling on business in Hartford, CT and extended my trip a day to spend in Newport, RI. My partner and I stopped here for a quick, light bite to eat before our harbor cruise. We had our pup, of course! The food was great and reasonably priced. The staff was very welcoming with the dog and (I think) the owner was very playful with our dog and gave us a doggy bag with treats :) Great spot!

    Cool spot!

    This was a nice, chill bar spot to bring our dog and hang out in the Newport atmosphere. Nothing special about the food...just your typical bar food, but they brought two little milkbones and a bowl of ice water for our pup! Will def come back here again!

    I was treated very well at O'Briens! I was given a dog bowl of ice water and ordered the grilled chicken off the dog menu. It was great, and I felt welcome!

    Great dog friendly pub!

    We had lunch at O'Briens today with our 2 Portuguese Water Dog puppies. As others have mentioned, they were both given a bowl of ice water and a bag of treats! It was so awesome, especially since is was a 90 degree day. The love for dogs also made us feel very comfortable. The sandwiches we had were great and the entire menu is very reasonably priced. We will definetly go back!

    Our new go-to

    Very accommodating. We sat down and our dog got his bowl of ice water before we even opened our menus. From their menu for dogs we ordered our little guy the 4 oz burger. He loved it. Super friendly staff. We will be back.

    So Welcoming to Dogs

    They were so welcoming to our two large Dobermans. They each got a bowl of ice water and a baggie of treats. The service was good and the beer was cold. Highly recommend!

    great atmosphere

    the staff was very friendly to the dogs. A bowl of water was supplied right away, and there was even a doggie menu! There were about 5-6 other dogs there when we went to lunch on a Saturday afternoon. We would definitely return.

    Doggie Heaven in Newport

    O'Briens Pub is a great place to go as a pet friendly eatery. When we got there, they greeted our little dog Muppet with a big bowl of water with ice. They also had a special doggie menu, and we ordered her a hamburger, which came cut up into small pieces. As for the human food, it was quite good. The lobster roll was great, and so was the New England clam chowder. Whats nice is that other than a few barks from the dogs, it was a quiet place.

    Great Place!

    We visited with our Shar-pei mix puppy, Leela. It was a warm day, so the hostess immediately came out with a bowl of ice water and dog treats. There was plenty of shade and places for Leela to lay down and relax. The human food was good. Bar-type food, but done well.

    Great for dogs and owners

    Great doggie menu (hot dogs, beef burgers, and chicken) plus excellent beer menu and food for their owners :) The wait staff was very kind and LOVED having the dogs around. upon arrival dogs were greeted with an ice cold bowl of water and a doggie menu! My husband, Gunner (male boxer), Ellie (Female Boxer) and I enjoyed the spacious patio and the company of other dogs and their owners :) plus EVERYONE there, with or without dog, enjoy the company of all dogs on patio! A great place to visit!
