An average salad served up fast in plastic. Hustle, bustle, no frills lunch. Looked like a lot of patrons like the fries. Nothing memorable about our visit.

I was excited to go to this place after spending the entire day "doctoring". Kind of a cool location in an alley and up a steep flight of stairs, fine if you are ok, but not good if you don't feel well. First strike for hubby. We waited just a short time at the bar for a table, we were... More

I usually taking the fries, the fries are really great and the atmosphere is wonderful. I like it when it's less crowded, you'd better try it during the weekdays rather than weekends

Newts is one of my favorite restaurants in Rochester. They have great baked nachos, burgers and popcorn. They always have about 5 specialty beers on tap.

Comfortable, friendly environment! When our cheesesticks came I was impressed. They appeared hand battered and delicious. When the Nachos came we could not believe it! The plate was piled high with layer after layer of goodness. We could not even finish 1/4 of it. It was yummy. Super nice waiter!

Overall, probably the best burger in town other than typical fast food. Wish it wasn't quite so pricey, about 25% higher than should be expected for food, ice tea, and atmosphere. Bet their clientelle would... More

Newt's has a great menu to choose from. The portions are generous and the burgers are fantastic. The craft beers available compliment the pub style food!
