I ate lunch here with a coworker while we were doing business in New Buffalo. I had the calzone and my coworker had the Italian sub. We shared our order with each other to get a taste of both. I loved both sandwiches. The service was good and the prices were great. I like the courtyard feel of the decor,... More

We had a wonderful time. Very good pizza ( just right size for a couple). Nice inexpensive bottle of wine, the Pinot Noir. Good attentive service.

Hubby and I enjoyed our evening at Brewsters. Can not wait to go back when the weather is warmer as they have outside seating also. They have a great menu and great pizza. You can build your own pizza also if you would like. Their house salad was to die for. Love their home made salad dressing that they also... More

The food is below par. No other way to say it i'm afraid. It's fine. It'll hit the spot and fill you up. But the patio is great. They have a lovely little bar and it's pretty. I would recommend at least stopping in for some munchies and a drink.

We ordered takeout and enjoyed our dinner at home with the dogs. The queen margherita antipasti, meatballs in marinara sauce and Roma pasta were all tasty. I would certainly return.

This is our favorite Italian restaurant! It's a step above Olive Garden for sure and the atmosphere is fantastic! If it's cold or rainy sit inside and stay warm by the coal oven. If it's nice sit outside in the garden terrace area. It's divided by bushes and trees so you don't feel like you're on top of your neighbors.... More

Our dinner at Brewsters was part of a package with the Inn at Union Pier. In the summer, we had no luck in getting in and we found out why when we dined there this weekend. It looks small but the food is incredible - we had the dinner for two and could not believe the phenom soup, pizza, or... More

First off, I am a local and I have been here a couple of times for lunch in the summer. I recently decided to go for dinner since it is not the peak time of the year I thought it shouldn't be a problem to stop by without a reservation. We were seated promply and yes, the decor and atmosphere... More

I feel compelled to respond to your review in that it is a complete misrepresentation of events. First, our menu changes every meal, every day; thus, so do our prices. It is true that we made a mistake and accidentally did not change the prices in our computer system to reflect the menu prices. Although accidental, it was an oversight... More
