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

Staff is the best! Super friendly. Great food though portions are a bit excessive which means take home leftovers.no big deal, though! Best popcorn in town. Would recommend ordering fries well done as at times are underdone.

Good place to hang out and have a beer. Decent food, although I would no longer award Newt's with the distinction of best burger in Rochester. The atmosphere is fun and lively. Lacks the charm of Newt's downtown. The service is consistently good. The place always seems to be pack.

Great place. Great service. We really enjoyed the fresh popcorn! There were a variety of great burgers and sandwiches to choose from. The fries were great. My daughter's chicken strips were tasty too. We will be back.
