Dined in the bar and service/ atmosphere was great. App/ salad excellent. Found a great French burgundy on the menu which carried the meal. Ribeye was only average, unfortunately. Dining partner had a strip steak which was similar. Overall a good meal just passing through Wichita.

We had an amazing time! we were seated in the just-opened Lakeside Room at a "date table" with a great view of the lake. Our server Daniel was outstanding, he is personable, knowledgeable, polished and sophisticated. Per Daniel's recommendation we had the mango-infused tequila cocktail: very refreshing and delicious. For a starter we had the Philly cheesesteak rolls. Our entre was the 36 oz T-bone and for dessert we had the bread pudding. Every dish was delicious, I highly recommend the mango infused tequila cocktail, the T-bone and the bread pudding,

We will be back!

From the start the service was very slow starting with waiting for a hostess when we arrived , I was standing at the front desk for almost ten minutes before anyone helped me . Once we were seated things didn’t get any better, they had plenty of staff waiting on the tables but it still took 2 hours from the time we arrived till the time we left . Food was good but not worth the wait .

Was glad to get a reservation at late notice. We got the porterhouse special and shared it. It was still plenty to eat and the sides were very good. Ordered the steak mid-well and the cooking was inconsistent. Some areas were medium rare, some medium and some just right. Noise level in east dining area was quite loud most of the time.

Chesters is one of the top 5 dining experiences in Wichita. It is currently uncomfortable because of the heat due to construction. This has been ongoing far to long and I can wait for this to be completed. Food is always excellent as usual.

On a road trip from Texas. Picked Chester’s from the positive reviews. Wonderful choice! Filet was fabulous with the light seared crust! Melted in your mouth! Server Dakota Dodge was friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful! And don’t miss the chocolate croissant bread pudding! Only negative…during this surge in COVID…no one had masks!

The noise level for the type of restaurant was a little more than I would expect.
Wife and I both made comments about how loud it was in the restaurant. We were there for a quiet meal. Sounded like a school cafeteria.

My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous anniversary dinner at Chester's this week. The food was unbelievable (Swordfish and steak entrees), the drinks were well crafted and the ambience in the restaurant was amazing. Even the soundtrack of songs was classy, upscale and perfect for the environment. Kudos to the ownership and staff!!

A/C was out. They were up front about it when we arrived, but would have liked to have been called when we placed the reservation. It was hard to enjoy the food when it was that hot inside.

Everything else was great!

The best thing was the service. We felt the food was just so-so. We had calamari to start with and it was tasty if a bit chewy. Our salads were good. My dinner partner had a filet which arrived on plate with nothing else on it. A sprig of parsley or something might made a better appearance. On the other hand, my trout was well decorated and look appetizing although the sauce on it pretty much masked the flavor of the trout. The creme brulee was excellent.
We probably won't go back any time soon.

Food was great, service was good except for the dessert order took 25 minutes for a tumbleweed and 2 ice creams. The atmosphere was not so good. It was extremely warm inside with some kind of portable coolers and fans set up everywhere. This may have been related to the ongoing construction or maybe an HVAC failure. I would have preferred if we had been informed from the start that it would be that way and have the choice to come when the building was in better condition. Thank-you, Diane Elder

Another great Friday evening adventure at Chester’s thanks to our waiter Yonick who understands the nuances of food and drink ingredients and describes them in detail. Great filet and an inventive mahi mahi special we’ll remember. Good warm ambiance and excellently managed. We will be back soon!
