My husband and I stopped in for a light lunch. The "lead lady" appeared to be too busy for niceties. Witnessed her railing an employee, short with another patron waiting to be seated and overcharged us. When told to have a good day, her reply was, "Yep". I would not go back. Food was okay but high priced for a... More

This restaurant takes you back in time when everyone cared about each other.The waitress saw one of our friends not eating her soup and determined that she didn't like it. She brought something else for her without any of us asking. That's real customer service!

The last time I dined here with my partner, the server literally threw our food onto our table from a foot away- it was clear from the start she was not pleased to be waiting on us, and I have never before had such (at first) passive-aggressive and later, outright aggressive, service. None of the management seemed concerned. We will... More

This was a great place for my sister and I to sit and relax. The service and food were exemplary. Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for breakfast.

Great choice for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The prices are reasonable and service is great. The restaurant is located in a restored coal tower so it kind of neat. Sunday brunch is wonderful. Don't worry if there is a line. Things move quickly.

We brought our visiting relatives over to Schoen Place on the Erie Canal for an unplanned afternoon of sightseeing, it was about 2:00 pm. We stood at the waterfront taking pictures, and decided to get a bite to eat, so my husband inquired at the restaurant we were standing in front of, with open air waterfront seating, but he was...

Great Fathers Day Breakfast. Just what we were looking for on our weekend trip to Rochester - casual and comfortable homey feel right across the street from the Erie Canal. We sat inside, but nice outdoor seating. Service was excellent even on a very busy Sunday - our waitress was very busy, but she was still very attentive. Very reasonable... More

We've eaten breakfast here for years and always been pleased. Large portions, well prepared food and quick, friendly service. Stopped for lunch and again were pleased. The Rubin sandwich and onion rings were great. I had a roast beef patty melt with perfectly toasted golden sour dough bread, tasty roast beef, lots of cheddar cheese and a tomato. I love... More

Breakfast was excellent. I had corn beef hash for the first time and it was delicious! My husband had eggs benedict and he said it was the best he has ever had anywhere.
