Excellent food Corn Bread Skillet, Dessert Flight! Excellent service by AnnieB! Excellent Rye Old Fashioned.
Novel food we find no place else. Other patrons "better dressed" than most places in Rochester so it has a classy vibe.
The food is always tasty at Chester's. It's nice to be able to count on that!
The Blackberry Mojito is luscious. And, almost any type of chicken at Chester's is exceptional, including the wings. The cornbread just kind of missed the mark! It was dry and had an odd flavor. We don't usually get dessert, but the chocolate cake was dense and rich and with the fudge sauce and ice cream, it took the decadence to another level... and the portion was enough for two or three people! The staff is always very friendly. THANKS!
Best key lime pie EVER!!!
Food is always amazing...make a reservation.
As always, loved our experience at Chester's. It's our "go to" for great dining in Rochester.
Large and varied menu - all tasty and well prepared. Staff was great and while a bit noisy, sitting away from the bar helped. Carrot cake was superb !
Good service, good food, good drinks!
It was easy to make a reservation and and it was a pleasant experience.
Our choice for our first time eating in a restaurant in over a year. It was still up to its high quality on all levels. The blackened salmon was perfect as was the raspberry chicken salad. One of the best in Rochester!!!
The service was exceptional and the food was amazing!
We love Chester’s. Always look forward to a meal there after a 5 hour drive!
The scallop piccata was excellent. The flight dessert was enormous & incredibly good. Would eat here every time we have a stay in Rochester.
Grilled shrimp was good. Steak was ok. I will try the chicken next time.
Promptly seated and had fantastic service throughout. Prices very reasonable and food was fresh and delicious. We has salads and flatbread pizza with a side of the cornbread, and all were excellent. Cannot say enough about the service. Attentive and accommodating personnel all around.
Went to celebrate a birthday and had great service, great food and loved their chocolate cake with hot fudge! So amazing! We will definitely be back.
My son tried the spaghetti and loved his meal. I had the salmon and asparagus salad. It was delicious.
Most wonderful food! Wife described her food (Parmesan-crusted walleye and rice) as the BEST food she has ever had!! I had the bacon wrapped filet and shrimp ...also very good. You are our favorite restaurant in the world! We'll be back! We were in town for a Mayo appointment. We are from Marshfield WI (250 miles away).
The wait staff was excellent. Very attentive, genuine, and friendly. The food was decent, salmon especially was cooked perfectly. The cocktails were good as well. Nothing over the top excellent but a reliably good, meal with options for the whole family.
Food was delicious as it always is. It can be noisy but given that people are excited to go out much less finally be with friends for the first time in a year, it can be expected. Wasn't bad though.
Pace of service check-ins rushed us.
Brunch every Sunday; consistently, a pleasant time
First I would say, our waiter Chris was awesome! Very pleasant and knowledgeable. Next the food, for a starter we had the steak and blue fondue whick is always our favorits and tonight was excellent. For main course we had one minute chicken, Santa Fe salad and steak and scallops.. Most of the food was great except the steaks....they had kind of a funky texture and there was only one medium size scallop which was disappointing. We shared a dessert sampler amoung 4 and this was all delicious but the overall favorite was the banana cream pie. All the Chester cocktails we tried were very good as well. Overall a pleasant evening.
Excellent food and service! We shared an appetizer of walleye cakes, a burger with blueberry jam, jalapenos and brie cheesecurds with sweet potato fries, and finished with strawberry rhubarb crisp with vanilla bean ice cream. Fabulous!!!
Very convenient location downtown. So many delicious-sounding choices that it was hard to pick one.
Meeting a friend from out of state
Nothing special. Waiters not very well trained. Food nothing special. A bit disappointed. Likely won’t be back.

Wonderful food and service as always.
We really enjoyed our Sunday brunch at Chester's on Apr. 4. We would certainly go back again.
The restaurant was beautiful inside! We were there for Easter brunch and our food was all very good, large portions and reasonably priced. Our server was great and offered suggestions when we asked questions about the menu. We will definitely go back again!
Always a great time. The food and service outstanding!!
Great food. Great service. Always a top choice when our family goes out
