We went very recently. Once inside, we were served quickly and in a very friendly manner by the family who runs Jim's. The diner was clean and well laid out. The prices were very good for the quality of the food. As a result, Jim's was nearly full, but never felt crowded. I had one of the daily specials: a... More

Jim's on Main is a cozy, recently-renovated little diner right on Main Street at the edge of downtown Rochester. A family-run business with good food, fast and friendly service. Comfortable, relaxing atmosphere that's very welcoming to the locals and regulars and also out of towners!

Nice little find in Rochester. The prices were extremely reasonable and the service was a very friendly. I had the Black Russian Melt - corned beef, swiss cheese, dijon on pumpernickel - and it was very tasty. My son had the Philly Cheese Steak, but it was a little bland (needed some more cheese too from the looks of it).... More

An awesome local dinner serving amazing breakfasts and lunch daily. Daily specials on the board are always a great choice. Coffee cake changes daily and always very good. Family run and always wonderful service. Plenty of parking next door. It's cash only but they have an ATM in case you're short on cash despite prices are in line with the... More

Had a great breakfast here during our stay, will definitely be back next time we are in town. We were looking for the Strong museum and were hoping to find a restaurant nearby, and a local pointed us to this great spot. So glad they did. One piece of feedback is that the bench where you wait for tables is... More

Stopped in for breakfast on Sunday morning. It's a busy spot but hit a turnover moment and we were promptly seated at the counter. Tastey plates of Eggs Benedict and Scrambled Eggs with bottomless coffee were quickly served up. A pleasant experience worth checking out.

Greeted with smiles, coffee served before asking for it (it was like telepathy cause I needed coffee!) the breakfast was prompt, delicious and the crowded room was full of happy customers. BIG NOTE: Get there before 10 am on Sunday or be prepared to wait in line (which didn't seem to matter to the block long line as we were... More
