Chester’s is one of my favorite go to restaurants in Rochester. The food and service are always great. I love to have a drink at a local pub and finish the evening at Chester’s.

The atmosphere is chic and the service is excellent. Try to get there early so you don't get seated outside in the mall atrium.

This is our "go to" place in Rochester. Always great food and friendly staff. There is always a wait, they could use more space in the bar when there is long waiting times.

We had lunch at Chester's in Rochester and really enjoyed the food. The service was great even though it was during a very busy lunch hour.

"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!
