    First off the ambiance was wonderful. It was quiet, lights everywhere outside, and a nice feel. Offering gluten free pizza is why we came, and it didn’t disappoint! Our server was sweet and attentive, and the drinks food, and dessert were all amazing. Prices were very affordable. Can’t wait to come back!

    Hostess was not nice at all! She was a terrible first impression walking in. We had a reservation and after waiting 15 minutes past time and asking her about getting a table she went off on our party. Bar tender was great and ended up sitting at the bar with him instead of having a table. Food was good. Just unfortunate as we’re locals and like to come in this restaurant.

    There are times after a difficult day when stress has me down. When, after these days, we dine at Brewsters my spirits are lifted and feel so much better. Part of this is because we are never disappointed with the food and always great service. Over 20 years and you are still our favorite.

    Cafe was a recommendation to us from someone who lives in the area, but the food was underwhelming. Tortellini tasted store bought, as did the bread. Spag and meatballs had different temps for the balls, sauce and noodles indicating all things not made fresh.

    Took a friend who had not been to Brewster's before but had heard it was a favorite in my family. He enjoyed it very much, both ambiance and our great server Brandy. Had a reservation; for some reason the hostess took us to a small table for two. When I asked for a larger table she did not hesitate, and we had elbow room in a lovely spot. My friend reported the pastrami was very good. I always enjoy Brewster's food.

    Food was SUPER !!! I had the spaghetti and HOMEMADE meatballs in HOMEMADE sauce. 5 BIG meatballs in a bowlful of perfect pasta!!!! Fabulous!!! My wife had one of the specials with chicken, risotto and tiny little peppers that gave it a really good zip. Wine was very good and a reasonable price. Desert was a Lemon cake that was delightful. Went back the next day for really good personal sized pizzas. Brewsters is a WINNER!!!!! Only "negative" is that they ask for you to add a tip for the cooks. I did add a few bucks.
