Most people from Rochester can tell you that a burger from Newts is amazing. What not as many people know, is that Newts also has an outstanding breakfast menu on the weekends. I personally love their french toast, but I have never heard a complaint with any of their menu items. Definitely a "must do" on your Rochester visit!

We were coming back to Minneapolis from a trip to Chicago. We had read Tripadvisor reviews for different restaurants in Madison and Lacrosse. Road closures and bad directions frustrated us into postponing our lunch until we hit Rochester. We read the review of Newt's and decided we wanted to give it a try... It was well worth the wait. We... More

My husband had the Blue cheese burger and I had the fish and chips. DELICIOUS!! The fish was moist and too good to stop eating, the burger was also juicy and huge! and we were both surprised at how good the fries are! The atmosphere is fun for all ages too. If you want the best burger in town, stop... More

I've been to Newt 's a few times and each time I leave feeling like "why did I go here again?". The chicken strips are good, the fish sandwich is blah, I've heard the burgers are good, the fries are decent, and the bloody mary's are really good...if I go again I'm going to drink my dinner.

Went back again, and the experience was great this time too. It is hard to find a restaurant that will serve a rare burger rare but they did - enough to make the bun nice and soaked! Love it. Great deal on pitchers on Tuesday nights. Wish we lived closer!

Yummy - nice meal. The burgers were rare, tasty and well prepared - nice flavorful combinations. The bar was excellent - 1/2 price pitchers on Tuesday night but not just your average cheap beer - this included the really good stuff too! The bartender was terrific - knew his beer well. Would definitely go back!

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.
