Billed as Rochester’s finest restaurant, we had to try it while in the area. The food was just not good. My wife’s halibut was way over cooked and the famed rotisserie chicken was good, not great. It tasted slightly better than Costco’s chicken. What really...More

We love the atmosphere and the staff in Chester's. Have Guinness in cans and not many pubs do. Food is always great. The chicken is fabulous.

The rotisserie chicken was amazing! The mashed potatoes were almost as good as the chicken. I would definitely recommend Chester’s to anyone traveling to Rochester.

"Why Chester's?" We get asked this often and the answer is quite simple...it's a friendly, comfortable and traditional name. This is a direct reflection of how we want you to feel in our restaurant. The other connection we made is a tribute to the city, Ro-Chester's! We love Rochester and we're glad to be a part of this community. Comfort food, steaks, fresh fish, pasta you name it we have it!
