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!

Known for their burgers. Really good fried onion rings, although server might have mentioned the up-charge from the fries, since he marketed the onion rings. 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!

Newt's has received several awards for best burgers and we saw and tasted first-hand why this was true. Service was excellent; kind of laid back, but never leaving you wanting for anything. The house Malbec was very good. My wife had Marvin's Burger which was great. I like to customize my burgers and this was no problem at Newt's. I... More

Casual pub atmosphere with roomy booths. Great place to meet a few friends for lively conversation & really good food. We always split a burger & fries and one order of nachos between 2 of us and go home with leftovers. Service is always excellent!
