Great food and beer selection

This is not just a hamburger place; the menu is varied, and yes the burgers are delicious. I like the fact that there were a lot of beers on tap. Service was good, and the decor is inviting. Very nice choice for a casually nice place to eat.

My husband and I just went for a quick drink and were very impressed by the staff! As we were entering the establishment we were met with an enthusiastic greeting by the gentleman taking out the garbage out as he held the door open for us. The bartender was very accommodating and eager to serve us our drinks and even... More

Some might think it's expensive, but prices are in line with pretty much anywhere you go. Burgers are made to order with fresh beef. All varieties are good, but a simple mushroom and swiss or bacon cheeseburger will likely be one of the best you ever have. This is a great place to swing off of 52 for lunch. Beers... More

Went there expecting the best burgers. The bun was all sloppy as soon as I picked it up. The flavor was good and popcorn was good. The onion rings tasted amazing but after leaving restaurant we had a greasy taste left in our mouth like from bad oil.

Burgers are fantastic and the onion rings to die for. Be warned that the portions are what I call Minnesota Healthy so come hungry.

The cheese curds were heaven in my mouth. I had the peanut butter burger and my husband had the marvin. Great burgers. Best I have had in a long time.

We visited from central MN after a long days work. The food is consistently excellent, service exceptional and atmosphere fun. Despite the fear of no parking - all the times we have stopped one just happens to free up when we are driving around. Love this restaurant!!!

Went to lunch at Newt's with my wife. The food was mediocre, and that's being generous. The service was bad, that's also being generous. Had to wait 10mns after done eating for our waitress to come back to our table and ask if we we were done. Other tables sitting around us were doing the same waiting game. I can... More

Not only do they have a menu that lets you basically make your own burger, they have great service! I have stopped at a Newt's location each time I'm in Rochester. Thank goodness for the North location and just noticed that they are constructing a South location!! The downtown location isn't handicapped accessible but the others are. This is one... More
