We enjoyed a great meal here while walking around New Buffalo. We were staying in Union Pier for a few days and the owners of our accomodation highly recommended this place. It did not disappoint!

Stopped by for lunch, wonderful ambiance. Had just soup and salad but it was very good, my husband raved over his steak salad. The iced tea was some of the best I’ve ever had. Mashawn was our awesome server. She was attentive, sweet, and anticipated...our needs. Definitely a keeper! We will be back.More

We met friends and with no reservations, we did not get an outdoor table. And this is a Tuesday at the end of September. A varied menu included a number of attractive sounding salads. I had the Cobb and my husband had the special sale...which included a fresh piece of grilled salmon. We were both pleased with our choices and so were our friends. We will come back--but make a reservation next time. the outdoor patio is lovely and we want to take advantage of the fall weather.More

All of New Buffalo was out of power. Nothing open except two places. We originally tried to get a reservation but the wait was 3 hours. We left and searched for a restaurant that was open in nearby towns. Nothing. On the way back I...called Brewsters and they had two seats at the bar. The bartender Melissa was awesome and was doing the job of 4 people, all with a smile and great attitude! That made it for us !More

Good service plus generous servings at this gem of a place in New Buffalo. Good bartender as well. We had a reservation and were seated promptly.

We had a party of 11, and when I called to try to make a reservation, the staff was very helpful and worked with our date and approximate time as best they could. We stayed flexible and glad we did as our dining experience was...excellent. Our waiter, Dan, was good, and the food was very good. A little something for everyone on the menu. Really enjoyed the sausage and peppers, burrata caprese, and Italian sweet corn salad appetizers and would recommend each of them. I personally had the lasagna, and tried the meatballs (consider ordering with short pasta rather than long) and the Roma entrees, both of which were very good. A couple in our party tried the dinner for two special and were very happy with that option both because the food was good, but also was economical. Finally,our server provided us with cookies - would highly recommend the lemon blueberry cookie, it was delicious!More

Amazing Italian food. Friendly wait staff. Can’t count how many times we’ve been there. Would go again in a heartbeat!

First visit here. My husband had the lasagna based on the recommendation of someone we met in the parking lot who said it was great. It was, with lots of flavor and cheese. I had shrimp and sausage with paparadelle? (wide homemade pasta) without the...chili flakes. Delicious and ample portion! We split a tiramisu for dessert. Very good but definitely to share... unless you make it your meal. Nice atmosphere and friendly, attentive service. Prices very reasonable for the value.More

We had lunch with friends on the patio. Excellent service & food. Pizza was delicious as were our lunch specials. They have the best house dressing for salads. It was a creamy balsamic. Highly recommend.
