Hard to find for an out of owner but weIl worth it. Exciting menu, daily specials are really enjoyable. Situated in an old brick building of some historical importance I'm sure. Beautiful patio area and the interior is equally beautiful and warm feeling. Had the daily special pizza and an order of black & tan onion rings. Pizza was stellar,... More

Went here for the first time on Thursday with two friends. Nice atmosphere and the place had a buzz of people. Food was very tasty, I was very impressed by the menu selection and really enjoyed our dinner. Service was good and prices were reasonable.

Gate House has always been one of our "go to" places. Now that they've moved to a new location it's even better. There's more room but still has the same good quality food and pleasant unrushed service. The burgers are imaginative and delicious. I'm a fan of the Wambach, a Grilled turkey burger with Grilled Pineapple, avocado, pickles onions and... More

Two of us had dinner at the Gate House on a Sunday evening. We were in Rochester for a day trip, and it was our first time eating there. We each ordered a beer. My partner had the buffalo chicken tender dinner, and I had the grilled salmon. We ordered a side of the black and tan onion rings as... More

I love the Gate House, I've never had anything I didn't enjoy here. Burgers are amazing. Great for a date night, it does get pretty busy here so there will probably be a wait.

Enjoyed a delicious lunch today at the Gate House Cafe. We were able to sit outside in the courtyard area of Village Gate. We had good service. Nice atmosphere. Our food was prepared quickly, served nice and hot. I had the MAG pizza - nice tomato sauce, cheese, breaded eggplant pieces, mushrooms, spinach. Pizza was cooked perfectly - not charred.... More

I see lots of reviews about the burgers but the vegetarian selections are great here too. We have dined here many time and always had excellent meals and service even when very crowded. The new digs are larger and the outside seating option is great on a summer eve. Drinks are also very tasty. No this is not the least... More

We recently ate lunch at the Gatehouse. I have been here before and I can honestly say that it is always fantastic! I ordered a Mediterranean small plate - grilled pita bread, grilled zucchini and peppers, fabulous hummus, olives, and 2 perfect falafel! It was delicious! And far from being a "small plate", I ended up having to bring half... More

we have gone here many times - but it has probably been over a year. I have to say a $92 meal for four people with two beers and one drink was pricey for what we got - we all got burgers and it will be the last time. you can put as many toppings on a $16 burger you... More
