We ate lunch here twice in the past week. They have a good menu with a lot of choices. The restaurant is conveniently located near Mayo Clinic. The staff was friendly. A good choice if you are in the area.

I wish this place was where I live in Omaha because I would go back in a heartbeat. The chicken wings as an appetizer were outstanding and the Blackberry Jalapeno burger was equally good. There were so many things on the menu that I am...More

Within close walking distance from Mayo ... a nice little get away from a day with doctors. Indoor or outdoor seating provides different dining experiences. The menu is so good. It’s a must... I go there every time I’m in Rochester.

My wife and I enjoyed the Sunday brunch this morning. The Bloody Marys were spicy and the meals delicious. Skip the buffet (scrambled eggs, bacon, etc., etc.) and order off the menu. And if you are really hungry, indulge in the biscuits and gravy.

There are not too many good restaurant choices in Rochester. One of them is definitely Chester's. Nice broad menu (something for every taste), good food, nice staff. It is suggested to make a reservation ahead of time. They are normally pretty packed.

We have eaten here multiple times for lunch and dinner while visiting the Mayo Clinic. The food is excellent, the service is friendly and fast. It has nice ambiance. This is our “go to” place when in Rochester.

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!
