Great Italian atmosphere, great food, GREAT service! Priced reasonable. Their alfredo sauce with the seafood ravioli....AWESOME. Their white sauce is something I have never tasted like this....order extra! You may be taken home a box with the food they serve with the dish. Order the breadsticks with cheese. Enjoy! Fast service They have take-out, too

This a small but nice Dairy Queen. Everything was good, a clean place and nice people. It was freezing cold inside though! That would not stop me from going again though. Good place. Go try it out!

Puerto Viarta

Reviewed By DawnZHebron - Hebron

I have family in newton and have always been so disappointed when visiting because there is nothing good to eat. This mexican place was such a pleasant surprise. Had shrimp chimichanga and was fabulous. The salsa is excellent along with the rice. Nice atmosphere and good drink special.

One of the best grilled tenderloin sandwich - very flavorful - only a dollop of mustard required. The cooked carrots and green beans were served piping hot. Connie, our server, was so friendly and attentive - our waters and coffee never were empty. Dad had the walleye which he said was very delicious - he didn't share a bite!! This restaurant, which is in a bowling alley, is definitely a hometown experience. Everyone is treated like a friend. Trying to decide if I have room for the yummy looking pie!! Exceptionally priced meal!
There's a separate room used for special occasions and meetings (posted sign for weekly Rotary meetings - and they know a good place.)

Had Schezwan (sic?) chicken. Great sauce, not much chicken -- but lots of crunchy veggies. I ordered takeout. I asked the front desk if they used flour or cornstarch for thickening, and one of their daughters jumped up and asked me questions, then told her parents that I had an allergy. Cute kids, but I would have had to leave if they hadn't been there.

Pizza Man

Reviewed By hardwicksteve - Newton, Illinois

Don't let the appearance of the restaurant fool you. This place puts out the best pizza in town. Each pizza is individually seasoned and made with fresh ingredients. The interior of the building leaves a little to be desired but the pizza makes up for the decor. If nothing else - order carry out.

The best prime rib I have ever had. It was also the biggest prime rib I have ever had. The ONLY complaint is that their a/c wasn't working and it was quite warm. But the food totally made up for that.
