No idea Newks would ever have lobster crab bisque. Had it for lunch today and loved it with a small baguette. Two thumbs up! (Would have been better with a little sherry, but it is a deli, so....)

My daughter and granddaughter stopped by for lunch. I ordered their 10inch BBQ chicken pizza, expecting to only eat half and take the rest home. I don't know if it was the delicious flavor or the super thin crust, but I ended earing the whole thing!

I have been to Newks before when I was in Birmingham visiting with my daughter and son-in-law. This time my wife and my brother and sister-in-law were with us on a motorcycle trip. We stopped at Newks for lunch and we had a really good meal. Nothing fancy, but good quality food served fast. Their macaroni and cheese and sweet... More

Newk's great variety of food made from fresh ingredients and served in decent portions gets them the four stars and might warrant five. Their breads, sandwiches and soups are excellent. The variety of comfortable seating options makes it nice for the average weekday lunch but also for a small meeting of colleagues or students over laptops. This is totally subjective... More

Although quite crowded at 1:00 on a Friday afternoon, the wait wasn't long, and the food was excellent!! In addition to self-service beverage bars, there is a table stocked with terrific complimentary condiments, including pickles and cheeses! Prices were most reasonable, and the staff was... More

I have eaten here several times and keep coming back again and again. Great salads , sandwiches and soups. It is very busy with the lunch crowd from the nearby hospital, but the staff manages to deliver your order to your table quite quickly. Very friendly and polite employees. Even with the volume of business done here, the facility is... More
