Our waitress was very inattentive. My water was never refilled and I was never offered another beer. When our food finally arrived, it was not great. I did love sitting on the patio and the atmosphere was good.

The outdoor eating area here is gorgeous! We enjoyed a beautiful evening here for a girls dinner. Now for the not so good part, I am not a complainer but this was not a good meal. The food was SO salty (I ordered the Carne)...More

Our group had various meals and everyone enjoyed their choices. Great service with all the extras you expect a Italian restaurant - good bread with oil and cheese, good wine and wonderful pastas and seafood. Would go back.

Hanging out near New Buffalo Michigan, you have to go to Brewster's. Just off the strip, it is delicious and reasonable. We had their specialty salad with a tasty piece of salmon and a pesto based thin crust pizza. Mmmmm.

The Italian entrees are always unique and scrumptious. The meal for two is a fabulous option for couples. It also solves the problem of debating between two entrees. We never have room left for the homemade cookies so they always end up a nighttime snack....More

We've been coming to this area for a number of years. Brewster's consistently has unique, flavorful food -- many vegetarian selections. The service is always great!
