We chose this restaurant because it served Walleye and was near our hotel. The walleye was actually good, but the rest of the meal was not. The soup tasted like Campbell's cream of whatever and the potatoes were just that. The wine was edging towards vinegar. The atmosphere is a bit like eating in a nursing home. Most of the... More

The wine was a little weak, but my husband loved his halibut and we shared a tasty appetizer of cheese curds. I am still regretting not getting the coconut cake--it looked luscious and is a mixed opportunity.

We ate here 4 times in 5 days while my husband was in the hospital at May. Loved it! And good Canadian Lager Beer too. My father-in-law liked their Summit Pale Ale. We had walleye, soups and hot roast beef sandwiches over the 4 times we ate. Each item was delicious.

We eat at the Honker every time we are in Rochester. They have a large selection of good food at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is casual and comfortable, and service is good.

Came here for breakfast and had the special, "meat lovers eggs Benedict". Was really tasty, great hash browns and loved the way the meat and mushrooms etc. was cut into small cubes. Two minor things were only decaf lattes etc (regular coffee was ok!) and the poached eggs could of been softer. Was up there with one of my best... More

Everyone should try this place at least once. Great place to eat right across the road from St. MARY'S @ Mayo. Portions are huge. Enough for two people. Try it .
