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.

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.
