Delicious food!

I made my reservations through groupon.com. It was a very easy process. The person who greeted us had already our name and reservation time on the waiting list. I wish that groupon had no limits on days of dining. All food we ordered was outstanding. We enjoyed every bite of it. Our waiter... read more

The brick oven pizza was very good, the burger was overcooked and the rosemary fries were hollow and overcooked. Waitress was pleasant but food took forever to come out and the 2 of 4 meals had clearly been under the heat lamp awhile. The booth seats were cracked and lumpy and the multi sex bathrooms were not kept up well,... More

We went on a Saturday afternoon at 2:30, and it was really crowded even then! We had the burgers, and a po boy and they were delicious! They were amazing, and I would really recommend all of them: Gram burger, Duffy burger and the Po Boy with the pickled onions that were apparently delicious! The service was not at all... More

I met up with friends and this place is great for casual yet slightly more upscale dinner fare. I love a place that makes a great plain pizza, ,ie no fancy toppings, just good thin crust, red sauce and cheese. I find that hard to find in Rochester and miss all my neighborhood pizzarias from down state. However, the gate... More

I absolutely love The Gate House. Juicy and flavorful bugers, incredible pizzas plus a tasty drink selection. Definitely a place to visit. The only down side to rhis place is that it is quiate loud inside, so sit outside to be able to engage in leasure conversation and be heard.

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

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!

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!
