Good food, service a little lacking.

I had the New York steak, cooked exactly how I wanted it and tasted great. Place is small so I expected better service but it was okay. Waiter just didn't seem like he wanted to be serving anyone but did a okay job. For some reason he kept ignoring or messing up one of the persons in our party's... read more

We have been going here for Friday fish fry for years. Met some friends there this past Friday. They had arrived earlier and had ordered cocktails. One couple ordered Martinis. They were served in identical glasses. One glass clearly contained a good deal more liguor than the other. My friend pointed this out to the barmaid and she immediately copped... More

I moved away from Rochester 16 years ago and always make the Boulevard a meal-stop on a trip home. It's not the Ritz but it's a place where "every body knows your name." Neighborhood friendly and the best fish fry in town. What's not to love? You can't beat the value. Come to relax; come early if you have someplace... More

We stopped in on St. Patrick's Day for food and drink. Our second visit here in less than a year. Both trips wwere very similar - friendly service, a bit slow but we weren't in a hurry.. Our food was very good at reasonable prices too. This is a great backup place to eat in case your chosen restaurant is... More

I had dinner with four people tonight at the boulevard grill. I presented a restaurant.com coupon which I purchased in good faith and was told they no longer accept these coupons and should go back to restaurant .com to get our money back. I requested the manager at which time I was told they could not accept this coupon once... More

We often go to The Boulevard for dinner on Saturday night. Service is good(although we'll really miss Jason), soups and chowders are always superb as are burgers and prime rib. Try the Monday night Steak-out as well. It's a little rustic, but we've never been disappointed.

Food is so-so, the fish made a family member sick, place is dirty, the owner is rude.
