About Us

Webster’s Bistro & Bar is an inviting neighborhood restaurant in the tradition of a true French bistro. 

Since purchasing the landmark building located at 102 Webster Street in North Tonawanda that was home to Nestor’s Texas Red Hots for more than 30 years, Webster’s was born April 3, 2013.

Setting out to build upon a historical location where many fond memories were made, Kevin and Barbara Hughes and the entire Webster’s staff have strived to offer the same quality found in favorite small neighborhood bistros in Paris and rural France – a casual and warm environment with fresh, creative cuisine and a classic bar featuring an array of fine wines and spirits.
