I travel to Rochester quite a bit. I make certain to always eat the WILD walleye at one specific restaurant. This last trip I decided to try something different, so I went to the Canadian Honker for the exact same dish: Parmesan encrusted wild walleye. I first phoned the Canadian Honker prior to my trip to confirm they indeed had... More

Being Southerners, we'd never tried cheese curds. These beer battered cheese bites were yummy, though very salty! The rest of the meal was very good, though the service was a bit slow, perhaps because we were there at a time between lunch and dinner peak times. We also ordered carry out the next night, and was impressed with the ordering... More

Had a recommendation that this was a good place to eat. Waitress was overworked and food was only mediocre.

Started out outdoors but the friendly staff helped us relocate inside when the weather changed on us! Shared a taste ribeye and split the coconut cake with another couple, yum!

enjoyed the wide variety of choices. Great soup and sandwich combo. Enjoyed the outdoor seating. Right across the street from St Mary's, making it very convenient for family and friends that are waiting for loved ones going through surgery. Wait staff very friendly and helpful! Highly recommend!

Tonight I was asked what I was interested in eating, I asked the specials and was interested in the Meatloaf and the Lobster Mac & Cheese. Choose the Meat loaf and it was great! Moist and many flavors! Thanks for a great meal!

If you want a good breakfast, check out the Honker. They put a spin on some of the favorites and have a goal to provide excellent customer service.

That about sums it up. You won't find a lot of innovative items on the menu. The fare seems pretty standard for restaurants in this price range. But, the food was very good, and it was backed up with good service. We were there over the weekend, so the lunch crowd was a little light and we were seated immediately.... More

we eat out a great deal and found this restaurant delightful. Fresh food and good service. Coffee cup never got more than half empty. Will definitely come back when we are in the area.
