Knapps has the best burgers in town! A side of fries and a milkshake are must haves with your burger. It's an old time diner setting, very cute.

The shakes at this place are good but the staff has an attitude as if they were doing me a favor and allowing me to dine there. A hair was in my daughters float and they said they will make another one, which they did but we didn't even get a simple "sorry about that". I wish I could post... More

Have eaten here a few of times to please my granddaughter My turkey burger was flavorful and as you've heard the malts are worth the trip! One order of fries is more than enough for two. A window seat is fun to people watch all the activity on Main St. Kids love the counter stools. On the down side it... More

the burgers and buns are fresh and delicious. The food is great and the shakes are a must try. If you are in Rochester and want to get a burger and fries or onion rings, stop here and you wont regret it. Leave room for a milk shake!

Every time I'm in town I always stop in at Knapp's. I usually get a burger and those ridiculously large yummy onion rings.

This restaurant has been in downtown Rochester for EVER. A fun place to have a good burger and milkshake in an old fashioned soda shop atmosphere.

I love the donuts at Knapps! I would give them 5 stars but they didn't have any bags when I went and the woman gave me a home depot bag to put my take away donuts in.

Ok.. It's an old school malt shop. I get it. It brings back an era of when things were simple. The food was standard issue coney, but the prices were gourmet. I took my 4 kids there and our bill was $77.00 + 20% tip. We had burgers, fries, pop and each we all had shakes. The bottom line for... More

Great food - good atmosphere - slow service - very dirty! But you can't pass it up - the ambiance is what you are there for!
