Went for dinner on Superbowl Sunday. Regardless of where you sit you can watch a TV. Menu is mostly burgers and other sandwiches. Has a nice selection of draft and bottled beer. I had a cheeseburger which was large and tasty. My wife ordered the buffalo chicken nacho appetizer which could feed four people. Really nice kick with the sauce and Jalapenos! Waitstaff is attentive and friendly. Nice sports bar atmosphere.

Thank Joseph B

We went to Rochester for Gold Rush Days and stayed across the street from Newts close to the county Fairgrounds,
Food was excellent, will be going back for sure.

After having a couple of bad experiences at two other Rochester bars, we decided to stop at Newt's South on Nov 16, 2017. I had almost given up on pleasant and attentive service even existing in Rochester bars. We sat at the bar and before I could even ask, the bartender handed us a list of the brews available and pointed out the taps behind him and asked if we'd like to try any of them. Not only was he attentive to our presence, he was sincerely cheerful. He offered a couple of samples and when we landed on one, he offered his thoughts about the beers, so he clearly had sampled them himself and knew what he was talking about. He discouraged me from one just knowing my preferances, and after tasting it, I'm glad he did as he was right. We had already eaten, so I cannot comment on the food, but the attention at the bar in this location cannot be beat. We ended up staying for 2 beers and it was because the place was welcoming, comfortable and the staff was attentive to not only us, but other patrons at the bar. We will return and plan to eat there next time as well.

We visited Newts south and the food was very good!
Had the ground chicken burger platter and chicken quesadilla.
The portions were large (too much for one person) and the waiter (male) that we had was so polite and prompt !!
The atmosphere was cheery and they are family friendly.
Would definitely recommend and will return again !!

We stopped on a Friday evening around 7. The restaurant was busy but we only waited about 10 minutes for a table. The woman that greeted us at the door was super busy but always smiling. Our server was friendly and fun and super helpful making recommendations on what to order. The food arrived fairly quickly and the burgers and fries were soooo good!
