though more seating than before, the atmosphere is such that you can still talk and be heard. The food is excellent, no matter what i have chosen. The appetizers are bid enough to feed 2-3 people. Had the short ribs with pomegranate molasses...a circus for...the mouth! Going back soonMore

I made reservations two weeks early for our anniversary dinner. When we arrived, on time, I was told that our previously selected booth was unavailable and that the best they could do was to provide a table with our guaranteeing we we have but an...hour to enjoy our dinner. Needless to say this is not a level of professionalism one would expect from such a highly rated restaurant. Perhaps going elsewhere would be in order.More

Nice spot in New Buffalo. Very broad menu. They offer individual size pizzas which are very good. The Caesar salad I had was only ok. Service was great

We usually eat here twice when in the area, breakfast and again for either lunch or dinner. We have never had a bad meal here and the staff is great. By far one of our favorite restaurants.

Everything was great. Everyone kept telling us to go to Brewster’s and we are glad we did. We sat outside, the dining area atmosphere was 5 star. This was a girls getaway and we went for lunch. All had salads/soups. The gazpacho was wonderful, full...of flavor and just enough spice. Everyone was very happy with meal choice. Dressings were light and flavorful. If we were there longer, we definitely would’ve been back.More

Brewsters has great,friendly service . They have restaurant management down. The bar is a bust—$12 martini was half a drink. House wine with dinner for 10.00 was a half a normal wine pour. Manicotti was delicious, but don’t say it has sausage; it was basically...meatless. I know it is sausage crumbles, but you would need a microscope to find the few crumbles. Have your drink at home or go to another place worth the money . Cutting corners to save a Buck, causes customers to find another venue.More

A mixed review. We had dinner here one evening and the food and service was so excellent that we decided to return for breakfast. Mistake! The frittata had been cooked so long that it was burned around the edges and really dried out, and the...fried potatoes were closer to cold than hot. The waitress was indifferent when I mentioned my disappointment. I say stick to dinner. It was outstanding.More

This felt like a bad chain restaurant experience. Our waitress zipped by back and forth barely noticing our existence. Our food was out probably 5 minutes after we ordered it. Nothing seemed to be seasoned. A pasta dish & a steak salad, how hard is...that? Very disappointed.More

This restaurant seats more than you would expect but remains intimate as seating is divided into small home like rooms. It gives off a very authentic Italian vibe with a good drink selection, impressive array of pizza options and generous portions. My chicken parm was...delicious and could easily feed two people.More

We had a couple of chicken dishes and saw (and smelled!) several other dishes. They were very good. The portions were neither excessive nor chintzy. The service was very muted - not in your face, but always there when you needed a dessert menu or...a drink topped up. The restaurant has an amazing looking patio (we did not eat there) and a fairly formal indoors section.More
