  • "We took a faculty candidate here for lunch. It was not crowded. Easy to get in and out and very good service. A nice surprise for a college town that lacks quality restaurants."

  • "Traveling from St. Louis and found this jewel. The meal was delicious and dessert was to die for. Go for the Choco raspberry And baked marshmallows with homemade graham crackers"

  • "Newell House is a tad on the expensive side but still pretty tasty overall. We had a couple of letdowns with the appetizers as the duck pizza was on of the best things ever according to the waitress but had far to little on it to make it worth the price. Then she recommended the pork bellies on a bed of kale but that turned out to be Brussel sprouts. Our main courses were good; I recommend the pasta jambalaya. Spicy and tasty!"

  • "Waitress was trying to rush us which I can understand a bit but there 8 of us, we all had a dinner, drinks up until we left and a dessert to go.. I though this was rather inappropriate considering we were all buying drinks the whole time we were there! Thank you!"

From the wine to the appetizers and entrees, to the bread pudding and Baileys and coffee for dessert, everything was fresh, hot and wonderful. The service was very attention oriented, and always there when we needed something."
