I have been to this restaurant many times over the years with friends and with family. The atmosphere bothers inside and in the garden is wonderful. The garden area is the best outdoor dining in town in our opinion. The remodeling in the original area makes that section appealing again. Food is uniformly and consistently delicious. Service is always great.... More

Came for lunch. Wife got Carne pasta and I got Seafood pasta. Both Delicious. Comes with small salad or soup. Our server, Peggy, was very friendly and did a good job.

The décor of this restaurant is special. The selection was small, service quick, noisy and above average prices ($30+ for a pasta dish). We had pizzas; the sourdough pizza was the best.

This is a very nice small town Italian restaurant. Very friendly staff and great service. We had the specialty salad and a pizza both of which were very good. The atmosphere is very nice without being too fancy. They have complimentary bread which is very good but I believe you do need to request it. Overall a great experience.

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.
