One of the best overall meals... More

We had to wait for a table, but we were able to sit in the bar during the wait. My husband and I had the dinner for two which was way too much food for us even though it was so delicious. We enjoyed the pictures on the wall and wondered if they were family members. Try this restaurant if... More

Always enjoy this place when driving to New Buffalo. The dinner for two is always a great choice for couples or parties with two. The pizzas are very good and come with the dinner for two with a shared entree. Each person selects a soup or salad, a pizza and shares an entree and each gets their choice of cookies.... More

If you enjoy Italian food, this restaurant is for you! Our group had a variety of entrees and all raved about how good they were. Service was excellent, and the outdoor dining patio is beautiful with a variety of plants and flowers.

Every time we come to New Buffalo we end up hear. The food is very good, as is the service. We had a pizza to share as an appetizer (margarita). My wife and son had pasta and I had the fish special, mahi-mahi. The beers were surprisingly reasonably priced. I love sitting outside on a nice summer evening. It really... More

Would not allow us to sit inside, pizza & pasta took 45 minutes, crust seemed like frozen pre-cut circles. Not worth the 30 minute table wait. Friendly but sloppy service, had to ask for water, forks, food.

On my family's trip to New Buffalo a return to Brewster's was made because the first was so good. Our service was great. All staff were friendly and welcoming. We sat outside on the patio and upon entering and exiting the doors were held open for us. The patio is very pretty and cozy. First visit it was about 80°... More

Italian food that is well prepared. In the summer there can be a wait for seating and food preparation, but it is worth it.

We celebrated my daughter's birthday at Brewster's Italian Cafe on our recent trip to New Buffalo. The service was very good and the waiter was extremely pleasant. Our appetizers and wine were excellent. However, several members of our party were very disappointed with their entrees, particularly the meatballs. For the price, we expected much more! The restaurant is way over... More
