Been here numerous times when we want an awesome burger. My favorite is the Marvin burger. Usually busy....But I've always had minimal wait times. Last 2 visits the waiter took our orders of 6 people with no paper...Completely memorized and every order was modified off the menu! Completely impressive! This restaurant is a top 5 favorite of mine! Love it!

The restaurant was very busy so we stood in the doorway for a good 5 minutes before anyone even asked us if we had been helped. We had plenty of staff people look at us, but no one acknowledged us. It was about a 10 minute wait for a table. Our waitress was great!!! Not overly attentive, but she didn't... More

Took my son and his friends for a B-Day celebration. Many menu item choices. Something for everyone. Also great selection of tap beers with a local brewery on tap also. Great to see them support local. Food was great. Some of the best burgers in town.

One of the best burgers you will find in Rochester. There is a reason it has won awards for the best burger. All I can say is, try it for yourself!

Burgers are great! Hand-formed (it seems) patties, excellent buns, and a wide variety of choices. Excellent fries and onion rings. The popcorn while you wait wasn't bad either! If you want a good burger, this is the place to go (though there are other sandwiches on the menu as well).

We love Newts North. This time we got cold fries. Tip: Send them back right away. Waitress said she would make it up next time. Wondering if we will ever see her again.

Free popcorn is their trademark. We usually eat at the bar and bartender never disappoints. The service is a well oiled machine. Most burgers are also available with chicken breast. I went w Marvins Burger but w chicken. Went w a side salad instead of fries. Enjoy the option to change up the sides. Great local feel w solid pub... More

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...
