Newk's is a great place for a casual dining experience. The food is always good and fresh. I had the Italian sandwich with pasta salad. Very tasty. The pasta salad is a bit sharp, so if you aren't into pasta with a bite, you might...want to try something else. Service was fast and the dining room was clean. I love the ambiance of the place.More

Ordered the Cobb Salad. When it came it looked more like a Caesar Salad. Lots of romaine lettuce tossed in a heavy dressing to the point where most of the components of the salad were unrecognizable. I never saw or tasted any Gorgonzola cheese bits,...bacon crumbles, green onions, or pecans. The eggs were chopped so fine that they too were unrecognizable for the most part. There were 3 grape tomatoes and 3 croutons. I asked to speak with the Manager and when he finally showed he was immediately very defensive even before I had a chance to say anything. He then proceeded to continually blame me for not requesting the dressing on the side (which wasn't even one of my concerns) and said that next time I needed to be sure to request the dressing on the side. At that point, I just said that I no longer saw that as a problem as I wouldn't be revisiting the restaurant.More

We eat here regularly for lunch. We have never been disappointed. The soups are very good as are the sandwiches. I was disappointed with the shrimp poboy. The shrimp were served boiled and not fried. A choice was not given.

A good variety with healthy choices. I had the avocado shrimp salad. We also had soup and dessert. Everything tasted pleasant. Friendly staff and the restaurant was clean.

I ordered the roast beef sandwich and half salad with reservations. I was pleasantly surprised that the sandwich was so much better than I expected. I wish we had Newk’s in Michigan. We also ate at the Newk’s in Auburn two nights before and I...ordered a pepperoni and sausage pizza that was also very good.More

They got the order messed up a little but it easy to see why. This place is clean, has good food, friendly staff. Lots of choose and not too pricey.

Stopped for lunch and was not disappointed. Suggest you review the menu on the wall before ordering. I had a burger and it was great.

The toughest thing about eating at Newks is picking just one (or two) items of that huge menu board. I have loved every choice so far. The greatest thing is not having to apologize to my body after the meal.

We have actually eaten here several times since the first time in June. The have great salads and sandwiches. The staff is friendly, and they have a great porch for outside dining. The last trip was during the Iron Bowl in November and they were...packed! They handled it well though and the was was not unreasonable given the traffic they had. Both my son and I have the Ahi Tuna Salad and it was marvelous! We can't visit Auburn without eating here at least once!More
