Lovely Menu and Atmosphere

With a menu unlike any other place I have ever been, Gate House was delicious! The service was prompt and friendly (except the one girl who asked to clear our plates after we had hardly touched our food). I love that they offer hot apple cider, the salad was so fresh and it was a clean place!

Actually, I have had very good burgers and other fare at the Gatehouse many times over the years and they are my favorite stop for such things. As a result, when my family was in town for the holidays I planned to get us all together for a nice meal there. I made reservations by phone for an 8:00 dinner... More

My wife and I have been here several times and never disappointed by the menu selection. There are a variety of pizzas with tasty combinations to choose from. If you supplement a medium-size pizza with one of the appetizer salads such as the one with fresh vegetables, you and your partner will not be disappointed. A couple of glasses of... More

We had a big family meal on a Sunday afternoon after a concert. Love the funky setting of the rehabbed area. My burger was delicious, actually cooked medium rare which you can't always get in a restaurant anymore. Everyone loved their meals. Service was pleasant even though the restaurant was crowded. There is a flea market on Sunday afternoon in... More

I have been to this establishment about 5 times for dinner and/or drinks over the last couple years and have always been extremely satisfied with the service and the quality of the food. They offer a wide variety of items, including a number of burger dishes named after Rochester, NY celebrities/landmarks and some excellent choices of pizza (as well as... More

One of a few casual dining places with a great menu. If wood fired pizzas are your favorite? Then this is it with many choices to choose from. The salads are vast and each is savory with every bite. The burgers are just as great here as well. You can order them to your liking instead of being over cooked.

Stopped in for "the best burger in Rochester". The burgers (2) was ordered med-well, the arrived med-rare. And the size of the burger is to small for the size of the bun and proportions of condiments. But it was a fine tasting burger. Fries didn't look like anything special, but were great! The cole slaw was amazing

This is a hip, happening restaurant located in the historic Village Gate. The burgers are juicy and tasty. The pizzas are perfect. The black and tan onion rings are to die for and their rosemary fries are splendid. You have got to check them out today.
