We stopped for an early lunch on a Saturday morning. They have a nice selection of things on their menu. I got fish and chips. It came pretty quickly and it was very good! Our server was friendly as well. It was a nice lunch.

I've been going to the Newtowne since the 70's - had my first eggplant parmigiana there back when that was a somewhat 'exotic' dish. Now friends meet there for great pizza, wings and draft beers. This place is a neighborhood institution, but it's also right...More

If you know what "townie" means, then you'll know what kind of place this is. Great drinking spot to shack up with some friends in a booth and put down pitchers of your typical beers. Also a great place for trivia on Thursday nights, where...More

this is review is for the billerica one. Worst service ever, but it was their first week. I'll maybe go back in like 6 months when they get the kinks worked out.
