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.

Chester’s has great food, nice atmosphere, and some of the best servers. My husband and I went twice while in Rochester. The first time we split a half slab of baby back ribs and the shrimp appetizer. Both were really good. The flavors of the...More

Day of walking leaves one super HUNGRY. Found great tasting food and excellent service at Chester's Kitchen & Bar. Decided to sit outside because it was beautiful plus soon it will be too cold!

Atmosphere is nice but a bit loud. Side room was more quiet than main dining/ bar room. The rotisserie chicken was recommended by the server and although, not too excited upon ordering, it was the BEST chicken I've ever eaten. Generous portions for the money....More

My favorite restaurant in Rochester. A little pricey but honestly worth it. We always have to get the Brie cheese curds. To die for!

We ate here three times (lunch and dinner) while visiting the Mayo Clinic; it is at most two blocks from the Mayo/Gonda buildings and is in a small multi-story shopping center that has some very interesting shops. The food is fresh and good - we...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!
