I was unresponsive when I was told we were eating at a good steak place in Carbondale seeing how it is a college town that I am very familiar with. But I was told it was a good place with good food so I shut my mouth and just went along with it. I can honestly say that this is... More

Nice restaurant with nice menu. I would recommend if you are in the area and looking for a quieter but good meal. Menu is a little small but the party of 5 all liked our different meals. Menu is very reasonable with respect to price.

Interesting food, not overdone. A great place to get together with friends and have a quiet adult night out.

This is one of the nicer (non-chain) places to eat in town. It is more expensive than many places in town but the food is always good. The steak was cooked perfect and the sides were delicious. Most of the parking is across the street.

We had been traveling most of the day and looked on the internet for some place in Carbondale to stop. Even though it was mid-afternoon the drinks and food in the basement bar were excellent. Very friendly people. I highly recommend Newell House.

The Newell House is a nice place for a good meal in an upscale environment. We particularly like The Grotto lounge down stairs, they have live music on a regular basis, and serve a limited menu.
