Brewster's was a welcome restaurant as we arrived New Buffalo in late evening and a bit hungry. It's a well kept building with a variety of seating choices, offering traditional Italian cuisine at good prices. We enjoyed our Chianti and Malbec wine choices by the glass, and purchased their Dinner for Two that offered 4 courses (and left boxes). It... More

We had a great meal here. We did the special couple deal and that let you get two salads, one pizza to split and one entrée to split. It was good and to top it off, you each get a wonderful, big cookie! Service was friendly and we had a nice time.

At least this restaurant was still open at 9pm but the food was pretty average. We had to move tables because of the very cold air conditioning. Not particularly good value.

I am soooo happy I found Brewster's. It's tucked away on a side street in town and I had an absolutely yummy meal here. Despite being a solo diner, the hostess led me to a great table originally set for four and told me to stop apologizing for taking up the space on a Friday night. My waitress immediately brought...

The... More

The innovative Char dish with a sundried tomato and pesto drizzle was simply excellent but when the bread basket is cold and the reheated pizza is worse than a Freschetta, you know something is not right. When you order cookies with macademia nuts and get oatmeal instead, you know something is not right in the kitchen. However, excellent servers with... More

The food was good and the patio is very nice for lunch. Went back for dinner the inside is small and not what you would expect for the price. There are better options right around this area for dinner.

First time there my two sisters and I were just looking for dessert, the tiramisu comes in a huge sundae like frosted glass with chocolate drizzled inside then there's the expresso soaked lady fingers, then the best marzipan cheese we have ever encountered to top it off it had fresh whipped cream. We have been back for lunch pizza soup... More
