Description: "Why Chester's?" We get asked this often and the answer is quite simple...it's a friendly, comfortable and traditional name. This is a direct reflection of how we want you to feel in our restaurant. The other connection we made is a tribute to the city, Ro-Chester's! We love Rochester and we're glad to be a part of this community. Comfort food, steaks, fresh fish, pasta you name it we have it!

The food is excellent here however it is located in a mall so not much of a view. We came here twice - once for just happy hour and another time for dinner. For happy hours we ordered the prime rib sliders and they were excellent except for the bun - it was a little on the soft side. For dinner my husband and I ordered the Cranberry Walnut salad that was really excellent and The Chester's Favorites and we shared. The Chester's favorites had chicken, meatloaf and a pork chop. My husband is fussy about meatloaf and he liked Chester's. The chicken and pork chop were excellent. The Chester's Special is a good buy - you get a lot of food. We splurged and ordered the Banana Pie for desert. To call this banana pie doesn't do it justice. There really was enough for eight people to share. The custard and crumb crust were to die for - they add whipped cream, bananas and a drizzle of chocolate sauce that sends it over the top. The wait staff were efficient and friendly. We would definitely go back. If you arrive around 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm expect a wait as this place is popular.

Lots of good food choices. People should find something they like. Lobster Mac and cheese is a favorite. This restaurant was voted number one in Rochester for 2017

Stopped in for lunch and the rotisserie chicken was excellent. The salad was also delicious. Great atmosphere and our server was excellent. Will definitely go back when in the area again!

Was in Rochester for Mayo visit for about 10 days. We went to this place 2 times in that 10 day period. ALL excellent visits! First visit, Had the Walleye Fish & Chips-BEST I've ever had. Wife had the Mediterranean Angel Hair Pasta, also Excellent. Second visit, Had the Prime Rib-Best I've had in 40 years( I used to roast prime rib in a restaurant 40 years ago), wife had the strip steak-Absolutely incredible! Also had the walleye crab cakes-A MUST! Wedge salad was made with AmaBlue cheese, an artisan amish cheesemaker in MN and was over-the-top! Desserts, bread pudding- awesome, choc cake-awesome! Both times the place was hopping and the service was excellent, portions large, pricing very reasonable. If you're looking for a well-rounded menu of items for a great meal, you can't miss at Chester's
