“One Boston Cooler and one Malt to go!”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

I wish every town had a dairy bar. We had a Boston Cooler and a chocolate malt.....all good! Will be back again to try a milkshake (or two).

“Best chocolate malt around served here”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Food is good, but shakes and chocolate malt are definitely my personal favourites here. The place is small, but that is what this place s all about. Personal service and friendly is their priority.

“Not much seating, but inexpensive”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

50's diner feel. It's nice for a quick stop while downtown. The only problem is the seating is very limited. Booths only sit 2 people, then there is some small barstools going around the counter, that's it. So don't bring a big group.

“A step back in time!”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

Knapp's is one of the greatest places in Rochester. You walk in to a 50's diner, with bar stool counter seating, black and white tile floor. the malts and milkshakes are EXCELLENT! Fried pickles are great! Burgers, soup, wonderful, Onion Rings bigger than your head! Check this place out!!! You won't be disappointed!!!

“All for American Icons but, you must deliver!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

I like the fact that we have traditional American places like this to keep the American tradition of a time that will never come back. However, the menu needs a inside make over, to work on the ingredients and the flavor. Execution of the burgers and dogs also need some re-engineering. In one word sloppy.
MAKE IT WORTH IT FOR US TO COME BACK AND GET YOUR FLAVORS RIGHT!
