Had to wait about 30 minutes for a table...they have updated the bathroom (much nicer). There were 4 adults in out party. The food was outstanding, they do charge for an extra basket of bread..which was overpriced. Will return

Brewsters is a great spot for dinner, make it even better by grabbing a table outside. The food is always spot on; relaxing atmosphere, come early or definitely make a reservation.

We do not accept reservations. However, once one entire restaurant is seated, we begin take names for seating. Call about a half hour before you come in and we’ll get you on the wait list! Check in with us when you arrive... More
