It's close to the U of R and one of the main drags. Food is not bad. and parking is beside it. Serves the usually diner fare.

Adjacent to Collegetown and walking distance from Strong Memorial Hospital and University of Rochester, it is easy to miss this diner's small non-lit sign walking on Mt. Hope street. Walking in is like walking into a genuine eatery of the past, with tasty very inexpensive basic food prepared simply. Nothing remotely fancy or pretentious; just genuine simplicity. Breakfast served at... More

We had a 5 year old with us and he was asking about when he was going to eat. 10 minutes later... More

I always enjoy stopping at Mt Hope Diner they have friendly staff and great food. The place is always busy and regulars always go there. When I'm in the area I always stop!

The place was clean and service good, but eggs over easy came out raw and pancakes still doughy. When the food gets to the table within five minutes of placing the order, something is allways undercooked. Plenty of other options in the area.

This is the second time my wife have had lunch here on our trips to Rochester. I ordered the Cuban sandwich on Ciabatta bread off the specials menu. My wife wasn't very hungry, so she just ordered an egg salad sandwich. Her sandwich was fine, and my Cuban sandwich was wonderful. It came with fries which were crisp and not... More

Today is Easter and I realised a lot of restaurants were closed today so I came here as I always wanted to. I order the entree chicken on rice with soup. It's nice and inexpensive. I will come again!

I ordered broil fish with baked potato and coleslaw - was delicious. The fish fry was as good s the broiled one. Order to go for the kids. Since that time I have... More

Typical Greek owned diner with good, hearty, basic food. Reasonably priced as you might expect. Service can be a bit slow sometimes.

By average diner standards, this was an average diner! Dinner was filling, although a bit on the salty side. The turkey dinner was typical, yet not bad. Not expensive at all. Friendly staff. Fruit pie was delicious and HUGE (too much, actually...way too much whipped cream). Not sure we would make this a must-do restaurant, but not bad as a... More
