    Dinner was excellent. Alcohol prices a little steep for what you get. On the rocks drinks are packed with ice. 3 sips and it's gone! Wine is barely a half pour.

    I celebrated a birthday with friends, and they went out of their way to make the evening special with custom menus and a decorated plate of dessert complete with candles. The server was amazing, attentive, and professional, yet fun and personable! The food and drinks were delicious and presented beautifully. If you need the perfect night out, it's at Brewsters.

    We were seated next to the kitchen so the noise level was increased. But we appreciated the promptness of our reservation. Our server was not overly friendly (was due to being busy) but was attentive to our every need. We will definitely return.

    We were seated in the other side with the fireplace which was really nice and cozy on Wednesday. Came for breakfast, which was delicious! Nice touch with the cinnamon chip mini muffins. Really good service and really nice, engaging server. You’re a favorite of ours for dinner, and we just recently tried you for breakfast. Yummy for either!!

    Came here last summer, and my wife had to have the cacio pepe again. I tried the bolognese and loved it. It was huge too, which is always a plus. But that huge piece of peanut butter pie was my favorite part. Thanks for a great evening!

    Three couples enjoyed meeting up for dinner at Brewsters this evening. Each couple chose the “dinner for two” option and three courses of their choice. From the drinks to dessert, everyone was pleased with the presentation and flavors. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. We love sharing Brewsters with our friends; never disappoints. The Bloody Mary is one of the best as is the fresh ingredients on the pizza and the tri color tortellini with fresh basil, tomatoes and freshly grated Parmesan . Delicious!

    We were visiting from out of town and decided to give this place a shot for breakfast. First I have to say the food was incredible. Apart from my own mother’s biscuits and gravy these are the best I’ve ever had. The server was incredibly kind and very prompt with service. This was an overall lovely way to start our day! We will definitely be back next time we’re in town!

    We always keep coming back to Brewster's but you always keep being amazing, so it's really your fault, not ours! The special this night was a pork tenderloin with a sherry cream sauce and black-eyed peas with mirepoix. This was fantastic - it was one of the best entrees I have ever had at Brewster's, and I wrote this review just after having the leftovers, which were also amazing. Drinks, as always, awesome. The Dinner for Two deal is always excellent, although regular ordering off the menu is equally great (the dinner for two is a lot of food - expect leftovers). Anyway, we love having Brewster's in the New Buffalo community and we'll be back soon.
