We were in the area on the weekend and dropped by this scenic canal side area for dinner. This seemed like a quaint restaurant and we gave it a try. It is a typical American diner and was quite busy. The server was friendly and prompt and we decided to try the specials of the day. I selected the halibut... More

Newishly renovated the Coal Tower is an excellent place for breakfast, lunch and dinner - good food, nice atmosphere and reasonably priced.

I was told that the Coal Tower had a good breakfast. Unfortunately we were their for lunch. It was average. We were seated outside which was nice and pleasant. I had a tomato bean soup to start which was very good. After this promising beginning, the reminder of the meal was just average. My tuna salad was bland. My wife... More

I was expecting something unique but was disappointed in the decor, food, and service. The food was that of a common diner not good. The waitress did not smile once. The place is very small and I assume she was trying to turn over our table to get to the next party. I would not go back. Price reasonable but... More

Coal tower has many diner favorites to choose from for the perfect unassuming and quaint breakfast or lunch. Don't let the old building fool you though, many a Pittsford deal has been likely struck under this roof. The coffee is always good and hot as it should be and service is fairly quick. You can't go wrong with this little... More

Had breakfast with a friend & had a great meal. The food is freshly prepared and delicious. I got "the barge" - yummy home fries covered with cheese, with bacon on top, and 2 eggs on top of that, served with Texas toast. I've been there before, and will return again.

My friend and I went for an early Friday night fish fry at the Coal Tower today; very, very disappointed. The fish - while a huge serving - was 'fishy' tasting with a lot of 'black' skin...the French fries - also very abundant - were cold and very salty. The cole slaw I had was good, but my friend's macaroni... More

Another great breakfast spot in Pittsford, with a scenic location on Schoen Place beside the Erie Canal. Come with a group or just the two of you.

Stopped by on a recent Sunday morning. Waited and waited for our food, while others who came in later were served. How long does it take to cook eggs and toast? Our breakfast finally arrived cold and with no apology or excuse. We won't be back.

Had a few wonderful visits to this great little find. Great breakfasts that can satisfy even teenage boys! Pancakes with beautiful, fresh blueberries, solid corned beef hash, fun signature dishes. :)
