I expected better. It all started with a watered down drink. The hash browns were cold, the egg omelet was paper thin. The cheese is my ham and cheese omelet did not exist and the ham was pre cooked salad bar style ham. I am not impressed. And everything was cold. Looks like I'm heading back to Brothers for my...

This place has a great way to start your mornings. Just get there prior to 10:45 or you will miss out. It also has very good burgers and cheese curds!

I have good food at this restaurant. I'm sure that anything you order, it would be good. Fries were very good also.

I had been wanting to try Newt's since we had been in Rochester. We finally went the night before we headed home. We got there a little before dinner time and the place stayed steadily busy. I am not sure that plating or pics do their food justice. It is probably not heart healthy food either...but it was delicious. We... More

We were passing through Rochester and stumbled upon Newts. Very welcoming, cool vibe, great beer selection and I loved the grilled cheese. My husband said his cheese burger was delicious. Our waiter was excellent and very personable!

Newts truly has the best burgers in Rochester. NW location is on the small side but they are great at getting you in as quickly as possible. Great family restaurant...one place we all agree on! Offer gluten free buns for burgers and fries are GF too!

Always voted the best burgers in Rochester and it's easy to see why! The Fish tacos are my wife's' favorite and I also like their Reuben. They have a fast & friendly staff as well as a great beer selection. My only complaint is they tend to skimp on the french fries.

Thank Steven V
