Chester's never disappoints! Our go-to dinner spot whenever we are in Rochester.
Good food and service. Was nice to sit outside even on a brisk day. Thanks!
I love Chester’s, when I’m meeting friends in Rochester they are always my first choice.
I’ve traveled all over the world, this restaurant has always been in my top 10!
Brunch was AMAZING!! Our waitress was attentive and helpful. Our meals came out really fast. We brought out two kids, and they loved it as well. I would love to go back!
Love this restaurant-they have the best salmon ever! I get it everytime.
Great dinner close to hotel, great service, super rotisserie chicken
Food was great. Service was good. The place was busy and a little louder than I was expecting.
Chester's is very good at serving excellent food. Sometimes service is a bit lacking, but overall Chester's is a good value.
Our experience at Chester's was excellent. Our server, hostess and manager were very accommodating in moving us away from a very noisy table of 4. It was quickly handed and the manager addressed the problem right away also.
The walleye and Chicken Raspberry salad were both excellent and enjoyable. Our server was very efficient and personable. Overall an enjoyable meal. The restaurant has implemented very good separation of patrons and used protective masks and gloves.
We were able to eat outside and were reassured about all of the safety precautions in place. We were seated far from other diners at an end table, which was nice. The sun was too hot and there were bugs around, but that is hard to escape when eating outdoors in the summer. Our food was good as always.
We ate dinner outside due to the pandemic, and we appreciated the precautions being taken by the restaurant. Rain began to fall lightly about 40 minutes after we arrived, which the young man who seated us hard warned us about, but because he put us against a wall and under an umbrella, we did not get wet. The food was great as usual, we had wonderful service from a young woman who is from Rochester, and we enjoyed not eating at home for a change. We always eat here when in town for Mayo appointments.
Absolutely delicious food and great service by our waiter Terrance!
Wonderful! I had the lobster Mac & Cheese which is always outstanding and my wife had the Parmesan encrusted walleye which was excellent. The fillet was large. We eat here often and are never disappointed with the experience.
Got the Walleye special at our last dinner there. It was one of the best I have had. The service was excellent. This restaurant is a must whenever we visit Rochester.
Food was great, server was professional & friendly. Had booth right next to open, bustling kitchen. Rattling dishes, etc is not for me. Next time, I’ll choose patio seating.
We are frequent guests @ CHESTERS, sitting in the bar. Pleased they have the HAPPY HOUR menu back and the outdoor seating.
Our waiter was great, took our drink order not long after we sat down and came back for our order with our drinks. The menu has a variety of choices in it, the corn bread is outstanding, but it is huge.
My husband ordered the fall-off-the bone ribs. I ordered the Buffalo shrimp and side salad. We shared the strawberry-rhubarb crisp with vanilla bean ice cream; everything was delish?
Great food and great service from Ashley.
Great food and dessert. Waiter was excellent meeting all of our needs.
Amazing food! They keep the favorites on the menu, but the rotating specials are also delicious!
The filet and salmon and broccoli were prepared exactly as we asked. Our server Amy was attentive but not intrusive. Only negative was too loud music.
Great service and ambiance. Couldn’t sit outside because there is a ton of construction around there and some of my group has hearing issues; but the outdoor area looks really nice.
Great as usual! Steaks was prepared to perfection.
Diner before mayo physicals
Excellent food and service! Highly recommended!
Service was Great... Food was great albeit a little overpriced... ABSOLUTE NIGHTMARE TO GET THERE WITH ALL THE CONSTRUCTION!!! Will no return until 90% of Construction GONE!!!!@
Our server was great, drinks were awesome, food was even better! Definitely coming back!!
A good after church meal.
Anniversary and requested a booth but got a table
The minute chicken was fantastic
I had the special for the night which was two 7 oz. pork chops. They were cooked to perfection and the seasoning was great. My wife ordered a ribeye steak. Normally she uses steak sauce. She said she didn't need it because the steak was seasoned just right. Their hashbrown casserole is a great side choice.
Delicious as always
Major road construction going right next to the patio. Made very a very distracting lunch. Food and drinks were amazing!!
Good take out experience
We went to Chester's for our anniversary. The food & service were wonderful. The only thing I didn't like is that the restaurant was cold.
Excellent food and service, but noise level is way too high.
I’ve going to Chester’s for the last several years and never have had a bad experience the service is great food amazing . Only problem I can never decide what to eat because all the choices are amazing . Kudos to you Chester’s . I skyways try to tell people to go there for a great dinner ,
Always great food and service. One of our must-haves when in Rochester!
