Chicken cutlets we not thin, not pounded just chicken breast and too thick.

Specifically asked what the chiefs pasta was and our waitress asked the kitchen - they said linguine but we got papperadel and it was too thick.

In the end we felt very bad for our waitress because she did everything right and asked all the right questions but the kitchen failed her.

We had dinner on the patio. It was just beautiful. Very private with many flowers. There were heat lamps as it was a little chilly that night. The food was very good, we had a variety of items and everyone enjoyed theirs. Don't miss the lemon cream cake for dessert. It was the perfect way to end a great meal.

Brewsters is quite simply the best, most consistent restaurant in Harbor Country. Service, food and ambience are always on point. Their patio is the perfect place to spend an hour enjoying the weather with some great food and drink. We have been dining at Brewsters for more than twenty years and have never been disappointed.

Took my girlfriend to the restaurant for her birthday dinner. Food was good and our waiter was excellent. I was not to happy though when just as we were finishing our desert we were asked to leave because they had another reservation they were trying to get in that didn’t want to sit at the bar. They didn’t offer to move us to the bar so we could continue our drinks we had only been there a 1 hr and 20 minutes. Up to this point I would have gone back again but after being asked to leave I would never return. I was very disappointed we were there to celebrate her birthday and and then we were rudely asked if we could leave. I won’t be returning and I’ll not be recommending this establishment

We had an awesome experience at Brewsters. The food was flavorful real Italian cooking. Nick was a joy to have as our server. We are usually a bit wary of Italian restaurants outside of Chicago area but this rivals anything in the city. Highly recommend Brewsters if you're in the New Buffalo MI area.

Best restaurant in Southwest Michigan! Everything is delicious. Charcuterie board, shrimp cocktail, entrees, specials and out of this world tiramisu brownie dessert (worth the visit just for that!) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
