from Memphis, we were hungry and didn't want fast food. Newell House was on our flight plan and we were happily surprised at the quality of the food and the ambience of the restaurant.

Nice restaurant with nice menu. I would recommend if you are in the area and looking for a quieter but good meal. Menu is a little small but the party of 5 all liked our different meals. Menu is very reasonable with respect to price.

Interesting food, not overdone. A great place to get together with friends and have a quiet adult night out.

This is one of the nicer (non-chain) places to eat in town. It is more expensive than many places in town but the food is always good. The steak was cooked perfect and the sides were delicious. Most of the parking is across the street.
