We stayed in the Rochester downtown skyway/subway complex in December / January for Mayo consults and visits. Chester’s was our “go to” dining choice most days. Great service and food. Prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity. They never let us down.

Was in the area again so I decided to try the much recommended lobster mac and cheese. The flavor of the mac and cheese was on point, however the lobster was a disappointment. I don't think this place would serve anything but fresh lobster however...More

The entrée salads at Chester provide generous servings with special ingredients throughout - cheese crumbles, dried apricots, walnuts, beets, raspberries. This is not a bowl of greens with a thin layer of the special ingredients. These are created on the spot, not pre-made and pulled...More

My daughter and I just spent 3 weeks in Rochester for Mayo Clinic appointments. Chester’s is easily accessible through the subway and skywalk from many hotels and Mayo, and the food is excellent and dependable. Nothing pretentious—just very good.

The food, service and atmosphere are really good. Every visit to Rochester, we go with our kids to Chester's. It's that great.

Stopped at Chester’s for dinner while staying overnight at Mayo Clinic. The location is great and can be accessed from the skyway to avoid the outdoors. It’s a 10-12 minute walk from the Mayo/Gonda lobby. Food was pretty good but wasn’t paced well. I ordered...More

Chesters is the go-to place in downtown Rochester to take visitors from out of town, friends, business lunch, or on a date with the wife. Chesters is a unique, non-chain option with a wide variety of menu options, and the food is always great. Wait...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!
