Seriously, the bar atmosphere is great, the drinks better and the food off the chart! I’m always here for surgery but have to have a Chester’s night first.

Right in the center of downtown Rochester at Peace Plaza. Naturally with Mayo Clinic providing quite a large portion of the business here it is always busy. We tried dining here on a recent Friday night (without reservations) and the wait was over an hour...More

Every time I go to Rochester I make sure to eat at Chester's! Their food is amazing - homemade, always delicious, generous portions. The meatloaf is to die for. Fantastic salads! And be sure to try their banana pudding - so different and delicious!

Food is quite good and service is excellent. They're located inside a downtown mall, but they have a cute "outdoor" seating area. It's a fun place to eat, but has a high noise level.

Chester's is accommodating. Beyond the excellent job they do on their food, they are willing to make sure they meet your health restrictions. Being in the heart of 'Mayo Country', not to mention right on top of the Mayo Clinic, there are many people who...More

Had the fish and chips, it was OK wife had the grilled meatloaf and said it was OK too. Nothing outstanding and nothing terrible. Service was kind of slow.

Lots of good food choices. People should find something they like. Lobster Mac and cheese is a favorite. This restaurant was voted number one in Rochester for 2017

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!
