We had been to the northside Newt's several times, so tried the downtown version. To reach this location you must climb an iron fire escape stairs to the second floor of an old downtown building and it is more of a bar with food than a restaurant that serves drinks and is about 1/3 scale of north. I had the Hickory Bacon Cheeseburger; ordered medium, arrived medium rare (??) and was a little salty. But taste was good, and bacon was actually hot. Fries soft and tasty. Wait staff was accommodating and professional. Place needed to be deep cleaned (disregarding Newt's usual free popcorn on the floor) as the ceiling tiles around air ducts had fuzzy/oily lint-dust all over, and windows overlooking the downtown street scene below, were dirty and streaked. A little TLC would improve this place a lot. Overall, stick with Newt's north.

Stopped in to newts for their delicious bloody Mary's and got there early enough to get the breakfast menu. Their portions for breakfast are just as big and hearty as dinner and supper!
New favorite breakfast stop!

I like the fact you can substitute a salad instead of fries at no up charge. You can also substitute the chicken for the hamburger. The chicken wasn't tough and the hamburger is not greasy. Food good. Diet Pepsi tasted great. If you like bloody Mary, try this one. Meal in itself. Includes an egg, slider cheese burger, olive, etc.

Great place to eat and have drinks. There are now three different locations in Rochester. They have been awarded best burgers on several occasions. Also have a great taco salad and popcorn. They play classic rock music.

Went for the first time las week, to start the popcorn was great. We ordered the chips with guac, it was good! The juicy Lucy was good but missing salad, the only bad thing were the fries. The fries were so over done that we couldn't eat them. Good prices and good music.
