    LOVE Brewster's. It is consistently amazing. Our server was great. Food was great. The dining room we were in was amazing. My only room for improvement is that both of us ate half of our meals. We had them boxed up. Completely forgot and walked out without the food. Usually the people cleaning up tables are all over when a group leaves. It would have been great if someone would have stopped us before we got out the door.

    Sure is nice to have an attentive server! Many thanks to Kim who did a fantastic job both in taking care of my elderly mother get seated and in serving us so well throughout the dinner. We loved the food, although prices are up quite a bit. Not a fan of the 3% service fee for paying by credit card. Carrying around the amount of cash for a dinner for 3 and wine is generally not a good idea nowadays. Strongly encourage getting rid of that fee.

    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.

    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!
