After spending a couple of hours on the beautiful New Boston beachfront, my friend and I (still somewhat covered in sand particles) were starving! With not too many restaurants within walking distance of the beach, we decided Brewster's might be our best option! CORRECT WE WERE!!!!
Although there were several quaint little patio tables nestled outside, we decided to grab a seat inside the restaurant (largely due to the fact that I desperately needed to charge my phone). The hosts were eager to accommodate us, sitting us next to a table within a couple feet of a wall outlet.
Ambiance: The scene was somewhat dimly lit, and our table was positioned where we could get a view of the chefs and other kitchen staff hard at work. My only complaint in this area would be the bathrooms, which could've used just a little TLC (shredded t.p. on the floor, odd smells, etc).
Menu/Food: Brewster's changes their menu daily. The day we went, there was an option for a Dinner For 2 which included two entrees to share (one 2 topping pizza and one regular entree), two soups or salads, and two desserts for under $50. Since my "pseudo-vegan" friend and I have very different taste in foods, we decided to order separately...but this was a great deal for those who could take advantage of it! I ordered the filet topped with a crab cake, which was accompanied by mixed vegetables and asiago stuffed gnocchi. PHENOMENAL! My only very minor gripe would be the heaviness of the gnocchi, but overall I was thoroughly pleased. As a starter, I had a creamy soup with mushroom/beef that was DELICIOUS. I ordered a margarita from the full bar which was also perfectly made & well-priced! My friend ordered the grilled fish option (yes this is the same pseudo-vegan previously mentioned), along with the gazpacho soup, and a bellini. She was also thoroughly pleased!
Service: Our server, Nicole, was excellent! She was extremely knowledgeable about the menu, and made sure to come back to check on us just enough to make us feel important...but not enough to make us feel overwhelmed. Our food was delivered quickly and accurately, leaving just enough time to enjoy each course without feeling rushed.
Overall, we had a FANTASTIC dining experience here at Brewster's!!! On my next trip along the Lake Michigan coast, this will definitely be at the top of my list (well...right after the beach that is).
