Perfection if it only weren't for the NOISE LEVEL !

Too bad a loud and noisy environment would keep this place from being a gem. If it weren't for the noise, the food is awesome! Salads, burgers, and pizza are top notch and the sweet potato fries are to die for; some of the best I've ever had!

We used to think this place had it going on but our last visit was...our last visit. Yes, noisy, crowded, that's OK. To be expected at many popular restaurants. Server arrives and takes a drink order. Only a hot tea ordered (4 of us). Now I know from many years experience in the business that servers hate tea orders because... More

The food is fantastic here. I especially like the gourmet burgers but the salads and pizzas are also delicious. The service is friendly, albeit a little slow, it's worth the wait. The bar is a nice place to sit and wait for a table.

Difficult to get a table so make a reservation. Delicious food with great gluten free options. Loud for a couple but with friends you wouldn't notice. Friendly and helpful staff!

Burgers, Salads, Baked Chicken Wings, Apps, Pizza, Cocktails... it's all good here. The Highland Park salad is my favorite, great flavor & perfectly dressed. I have NEVER had a bad meal here... ever. The sweet potato fries are amazing, and the Bloody Mary's are absolute perfection on a Sunday afternoon. I may or may not have eaten here for multiple... More

We just moved back to rochester for a bit, and needed to grab a late lunch. Ended up here and shared a salad and pizza. Had plans to meet friends for dinner and the other restaurant we planned in was full, so we went back here. I shared another salad (same one!) and pizza with my brother this time, and... More

If you are visiting Rochester The Gate House is a must try! They have a wonderful menu that is Rochester themed (items are named after neighborhoods, streets, and famous residents). The service is fast and the staff is very polite. It is typically very loud in the restaurant so be aware of that if you plan on brining a small... More

I've been to the Gate House for casual dinners many times, the most recent about a week ago, and it has never disappointed me. There is a huge selection of innovative burgers, salads and pizzas, all typically cooked to perfection and delicious. The staff is helpful and attentive. One warning - the word on this place is out and they... More
