I love this restaurant. My favorite food to order is the Chicken George, which is no longer on the menu but still available, and their house salad with cherries instead of walnuts. It is one of my favorite meals. The staff has always been friendly and the wait time usually isn't terrible as long as you expected that your food's... More

I've been going to Kruse Muers since the first restaurant opened in Rochester about 1988 I have done them the standard that I judge all other restaurants on because of the quality of food and service combined with a great atmosphere. I have noticed though that the absolutely wonderful bread that they serve has been slowly becoming skimpier and thinner.

This is one of our family's favorite restaurants in the area. Kruse and Muer never disappoints! The Michigan salad is great!

Their food is always great and atmosphere is great too. Family friendly or romantic - both work here. Their homemade bread is addictive ;-) food is always fresh. They do wine tastings a couple times a year and those are always fun too

My boyfriend and I almost always choose to come here for our birthdays and anniversary celebrations. The food is consistently good, atmosphere is great, and we've always had great service. Any of the seafood meals are delicious, you really can't go wrong. The corn chowder (I can't remember exactly what they call it) is DIVINE. Do yourself a favor and... More

We called ahead and they said there wasn't a wait. When we arrived we there were several tables available, but the chose to keep up waiting. Then they took us upstairs to a banquet room where we sat by ourselves. It was dark and basically was an attack. The floor hadn't been vacuumed in weeks. We only had a small... More

Great fish house in the Muer tradition. Unreal bread by the loaf. Nice soups and special house salad. Lot of energy and atmosphere. Highly recommend

Very friendly, and attentive, wait staff; and an elegant dining atmosphere on a mid-range budget. I ordered the clam chowder as an appetizer, and it was fantastic. It had more clam bits in it than I have ever received anywhere else; and it had a wonderful flavor (wish I could have had more). The main dish (grilled salmon with coconut... More

Very quaint atmosphere. Smart casual. Staff is professional. The only reason I did not give it five stars is because the service can be inconsistent. Also sometimes the specials can be very little seafood and a whole lot of noodles! The manager did refund the one dish I ordered and brought me another at no charge. We do go here... More
