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

As a point of context, we are restaurant people. We've lived in Chicago for 13 years and enjoy trying new restaurants. We chose to stay in New Buffalo because we'd heard the restaurants were good - and Brewster's stood out among those we tried. Positives: Great bar area where we comfortably waited with our infant daughter for a table (which... More

We stopped for lunch here one day. They have a nice glassed in area with a bar off the restaurant with a fireplace for colder months. The décor makes you feel like you are in a quaint little place in Italy. There is also an outdoor patio area that also looked very nice. We had a pizza & salad. The... More

We have been there twice and enjoyed our meal both times. The outdoor seating is very pretty. Our most recent visit was for lunch and we had pizza and the spinach/artichoke dip (yummy!). Service was good and I noticed they also have baked goods for sale that looked really good.

We were a party of 10, and they do not accept reservations. We were hoping for a 6:00-6:30 dinner reservation on a Sunday evening. We called in the afternoon, and the hostess recommended calling about 5:30 to see how much of a wait there was. There was no wait, so we went over. We were seated right away, outside, in... More

The food was fine - not great, but no actual complaint. The outdoor area is so lovely, but everyone there was whispering. Which made us and our kids feel like we had to whisper. Would not go back - if I am going to enjoy a nice meal I would also like to enjoy the pleasant conversation of the people... More
