We visited on a Tuesday evening. We had a 7:45pm reservation, arrived at 7:35pm and was seated around 8:15pm. They were busy which is good. They brought out a bean, tomato and cucumber salad which was good. We ordered the appetizer platter which was small and pricey. We ate most everything on the table while waiting for it. Main course... More

Food is very good whether you eat up front in the bar area or in the back restaurant. Oyster selection is usually pretty good in the bar. Reservations are recommended.

Tecnically this review is for Kabin Krusers which is the bar section in front. Great seafood, noisy "ambiance" with a separate seating section from the bar. Mussels are great. Service was excellent.

We were there as part of a wedding celebration. As such, I can only comment on our banquet experience. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was excellent. Looks like a pretty nice, if small, place. It would be fun to go back as dinner guests and explore the menu a bit.

My wife and I have yet to have a bad meal here. Although seafood is their specialty, their salads are tasty as well. Make sure you order a martini! Considered the high-end restaurant in downtown Rochester.

This is the more formal section of the total restaurant - Kabin Kruser is the less formal front end of the restaurant. You can never go wrong with a Bill Kruse restaurant. The food quality is always excellent and the service is also excellent. My favorite is Charley's Chowder followed by Salmon Lawrence. But everything is always dependably excellent. One... More

A good place to go for a special night out. Good surf and turf at this place. I had the beef and treated myself to a 6oz Tenderloin. My wife enjoyed the roast rack of lamb.
