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.

Very authentic Italian food. I was able to get a type of spaghetti. It was sooooo good. So was the spit pea soup and carrot cake.

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...

I went with a friend to Brewster. She goes frequently and I had never been. First off we had to ask another server for our server to come to table.

Ate here for our anniversary in August. Came with another couple. Food is always great along with the service. Had the dinner for two. More than enough food for both of us! We try to eat here once a year when we visit New Buffalo! Highly recommend. Enjoy eating outside.
