Great food. Lively, happy atmosphere. Comfortable seating for our small group in the midst of it all. Close to our hotel.

my family was looking for a good place for lunch after a soccer tournament and so I consulted TripAdvisor. Newt's had received great reviews, so we thought we'd try it out. It was busy, since there was a Vikings game going on, but we only waited 3 minutes instead of the 15 the hostess first told us. The burger selection... More

Like Min4597, we visited because we heard the burgers and atmosphere were great. Two appetizers we selected from the menu were no longer being served. We decided on the onion rings the server recommended. They were okay. We ordered cheese burgers, which were tasty. We arrived mid-afternoon so there were few patrons. The service was good and the price was... More

We stopped at Newts because we heard it was really good. Much to my surprise it was nasty. Service was awful and the gal was awful asked for mayo and ketchup and 15 min later I finally got it. The burger had a odd flavor. The fries was good but overall it was awful for the money

We stopped here to meet some family members and have a beer. It seem like it was a great sports bar with lots of TVs to watch football and baseball. They also offer fresh popcorn what for while you wait for your food to be prepared. They had a decent amount of draft beers on tap, and the bartenders seemed... More

You wouldn't expect the kind if interior you meet by the outside if thus building; it has a very cool atmosphere. The burgers are innovative and it us family friendly.

Typical bar food. Very little parking. Had to park across the street. Enjoyed the chicken strips more than other places I've been. Not exceptional though.

IMHO, Newts is highly over rated. I have eaten here several times over the years, and although the portion sizes are good, the flavor of the burgers is very mediocre. In fact, I believe their best sandwich is the cod fillet, and it is NOT a burger. Also, the fries are very inconsistent from visit to visit. I go here... More

If you want a good juicy (and big!) burger, this is your place. They are known for these but also have chicken, salads and appetizers. We love the Shroom Burger but also have to get the nachos. Go hungry- the portions are huge!

I chose this restaurant due to the close proximity to my hotel. It was really the only non fast food restaurant within walking distance. I loved it and would definitely choose this as my "burger joint" if I lived in Rochester. I was alone, so I sat at the bar and I didn't know anything about the popcorn, so I... More
