We ate lunch here before taking a boat ride on the Erie Canal. It's a fun place with a warm and charming atmosphere. The servers were prompt and friendly. I had a sandwich and pumpkin soup. The sandwich was good, but the soup was wonderful!...More

We have gone here several times, as have our children with their friends. We love the food and the relaxed atmosphere. The food is served hot, there are many selections at each meal time and the servers have always been friendly and prompt.

Coal Tower Restaurant is located in Schoen Place in Pittsford Village. Good affordable food--breakfast, lunch, dinner and in between. It's a busy place but counter space--our favorite seat, is always available. Good food, friendly service, reasonable prices.
