We came here in a group of six. They do not have an extensive menu, and they were out of a few items by the time we got there, but it wasn't a big deal to us. My husband and I split a steak salad and a pizza, and I really loved them both. It was all freshly made and... More

Have frequented Brewster's Italian Bistro in town. Fireplace in the main dining room with tables all around. Not your regular loud Italian restaurant, but more of a classy establishment. No dress up required, just a nice family Bistro. Prices are very good, relish tray before meal. You will not be disappointed!

A family run restaurant it is cozy, welcoming, and the food is excellent. In the heart of New Buffalo and Harbor Country, this is not your usual vacation spot restaurant. It is a place to go any time and to make a destination. The service was as good as the food. Definitely a place where I will frequent as often... More

Great food, great atmosphere, great drinks. Within walking distance to beach and shops! Great in the winter and great in the summer. Always a different menu depending on what they can get fresh.

We go to Brewster's every time we visit New Buffalo. My husband always gets the pizza, which tastes just like the pizza we got in Italy. They have some very unusual combinations on the pizzas but they are always delicious. They have a different menu every day. We like eating in the bar area when the weather doesn't allow outside...

They serve bread while waiting but You need to know that. It was wonderful! We ordered spinach artichoke dip which was heavenly. The bread or crust served with is very... More
