My husband and I stopped by for a quick lunch. The food was really good. Make sure to make reservations! It can get really busy at lunchtime.

We stopped in for lunch on the recommendation of a mall worker and were very pleasantly surprised. The parmesan crusted walleye was excellent and the oriental apple dessert a complete surprise filled with fresh flavors. The service was prompt, with a smile and attentive. You...More

Chester's was suggested by the motel manager as a good placeto eat. I cant recomend it. Upscale menu selection, upscale atmosphere, upscale prices. Poor quality chicken. My wife had the Salmon she said it was very good

Food was just palatable. Very expensive for what we got. Noisy and seating was very tight. Will not eat there again.

Solid menu and atmosphere with great food. Dining in, at the bar or to-go to take back to the hotel works well. Often a crowd, but worth it. My favorite near the Mayo Clinic for lunch or dinner.

"Why Chester's?" We get asked this often and the answer is quite simple...it's a friendly, comfortable and traditional name. This is a direct reflection of how we want you to feel in our restaurant. The other connection we made is a tribute to the city, Ro-Chester's! We love Rochester and we're glad to be a part of this community.
Comfort food, steaks, fresh fish, pasta you name it we have it!
