We had a good meal at Chester’s with a great waitress. The food was nothing special. It was good, not great.

We can’t go to Mayo without eating at Chester’s for one meal or another. It never disappoints. The wait staff is always great and the food comes hot and in a timely manner. Tastes great. Highly recommend!

Good menu variety without being over whelming. Erin D was our waitress, and she was amazing! Very helpful and polite. She made our evening a lot of fun. Food was excellent, a little pricey but worth it.

This restaurant is very popular and really busy. It does have very good food and great service - try the Walleye. It is attached to the University Shops and you can walk around before or after dinner. There are not a ton of good options...More

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!
