Big on Burgers

I've eaten here twice on visits to Rochester. The first time we all ordered burgers and they were cooked to order. They were good and tasty but medium was a bit too pink for my liking. Everybody else loved the. Last visit, I ordered the taco salad. It too was good and way too big for me to... read more

Had another great visit to Newt's. Food is always delicious and done right. Table service excellent, very friendly and helpful. Host staff leaves somethng to be desired, but I can get over that as the food is just so good.

Always a consistently great place to get a burger and a beer. Staff actually seems to enjoy themselves while working, you don`t always get that. Eventually I am going to have to try another burger, I am stuck on ordering the Marvin Burger every time. Always busy but they can handle it. Great spot for both the locals as well... More

After a particularly frustrating day of work for my wife, she and I decided to leave the kids at home and go for a few drinks and a meal. Even though it was quite busy for a Wednesday night, they got us to an open place at the bar for a a drink (I had a Summit tap, my wonderful... More

Packed at 6pm on a thurs eve yet got last table for 2 near the kitchen. Tables are cramped together and it is so noisey in there we had to nearly yell the whole time & repeat ourselves to have a conversation.  Worst Juicy Lucy ever...for one all the cheese melted out and was nowhere to be found so they...

This is the place to go in Rochester for deliciously cooked burgers and a good selection of craft beers on tap. Always hopping in the evening, yet they manage to get you seated and served in a timely manner. We love the Marvin burger - so tasty! Add a frosty glass of Surly Furious and I am a happy camper......

We were lucky to be seated quickly, as Newt's was very busy and we had a party of eight. This is a place for burgers. There are very few other items on the menu. However, the burgers are great, and they have many options. The fries and onion rings are also quite good. This is a typical sports bar atmosphere.

First off, best of luck even getting into this place, it is packed constantly. We got lucky tonight... Burgers are the best in town bar none. Every time. Nuff said.

We've eaten here several time when we've come to visit. It's one of our favorite places. When we first came in, it seemed like the one waitress was overwhelmed. It wasn't real busy, but it was pretty slow. A second waitress showed up and between the two the service was great. Very pleased. Food here is always great. Most definitely... More
