Three forks for the meatloaf sandwich! We were in a hurry to return to Mayo Clinic. Wait staff had us in and out in under 45 minutes.

Everything on the menu looks delicious! My favorite is the Lobster Mac & Cheese. In my top 5 best things I ever ate! Service is great. You may have a wait/line to get in....it's worth the wait! Or go early...4-ish😀

We had a mix of appetizer and entrees for dinner. The lettuce wraps were a hit, the walleye fish and chips had a nice light batter. Service was fine. I’d go back.

Chicken tortilla soup is great! Love it.the waitresses and waiters are very courteous. Good wines and beer too. My favorite entree has always been the roast turkey.

Description
"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!
