I usually keep to local restaurants but went for a friends birthday and we had the best experience with Patti , she made our night! She was a wonderful server and VERY knowledgeable about the seafood.

I just enjoyed a wonderful fish and chips lunch, Loved it. Be sure to try the malt vinegar on your chips for an extra good taste. We were served rather quickly as we had a group of 10 people. Everything was good.

For us, this restaurant was by far the best restaurant among all the rest of the restaurants that we have been to in Rochester so far. We dined around mid afternoon so there were literally no lines or whatsoever to sit down on our table. Everything was timely and appropriate. Brad was our waiter; he was very attentive and he...
