About
"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!

We had an early dinner. Ribeye and the bacon wrapped filet with scallops. Both were fantastic! Perfectly prepared and the grilled asparagus was delicious. We also each ordered the cornbread appetizer- wow - it was a huge wedge that could be easily split three ways!

Conveniently located near Mayo Clinic and accessible without having to walk outdoors from Mayo. The service and atmosphere is outstanding. Quality wine, cocktails and beer choices. Unique and delicious appetizers and entrees. There is something on the menus to please the pickiest palates.

We ate here on St. Patrick's Day and I very much enjoyed their take on corned beef and cabbage with Guiness flavored jus. My friends enjoyed the baked fish and burgers.

Have never had a bad experience at Chester’s. Flatbread was perfectly cooked and seasoned. Love the Healthy Bowl, but recommend substituting their rotisserie chicken in place the grilled chicken. Excellent service.

It’s to die for! Lots of lobster meat, a toasted breadcrumb topping, and a delicious pasta with cheese. It was amazing! The special that day was also very good - grilled mahi mahi with wasabi mashed potatoes and greens. Good service and great food!

I went for a business lunch and they had fox news playing in the bar. The food was average and the service was excellent but until they don't play Fox news, we won't be back.

Stopped in for dinner. I had fried walleye and my wife had a chicken dish. Both were wonderful and the quantities were large. Chester's is very close to the Mayo Clinic and we had interesting conversations with several very nice folks who were in town...More
