Chester's was once the Top Restaurant. Like its other restaurants, Terza and Pescara, I feel it was begun to slide. Not sure if it is a brand thing, or just lack of leadership, but the general experience has significantly declined. With every menu change (something...More

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!
