If you are new to Rochester you must try the Canadian Honker. The staff are so amazing, and the food is so good. Comfort food, yumyum. They have wonderful chocolate martinis too. The walleye is fresh and very good. Enjoy!

This place is so hyped up with the reviews however don't understand why! I had their ribs which were over cooked and so fatty. The rice which came with the ribs was minute rice which also was terrible. My meal cost 19.99 which was way overpriced for how bad it was. Very upset for a restaurant rank 4 in rochester... More

While visiting the Mayo we stayed next door to the Canadian Honker. The food was excellent and we even had it delivered once to our hotel. Everyone was friendly and especially kind during a tough time. The best onion rings EVER!!

I had a friend from out of state visiting and we went to lunch there. The food was served in no time and was wonderful. We then had the well known cake. That was the best cake ever.Need to get back soon.

I ate here a couple of times and the food was great. It was right next to my hotel so one night I ordered online and food was ready in 15 minutes. I went by to pick it up only to realize they have live bands on the weekends. Service was great. I had ribs one night that were as... More

Discovered this place during visit to Rochester. Excellent value for comfort food, and appears to be popular with locals as a place to dine with entire family. Wide variety of selections, including some "senior" fare with lower prices and smaller portions. Our salads and fish were very fresh and well-prepared. The service was attentive, even during a bustling weekend day.

I have worked in Rochester for over a year, hearing about this restaurant and how good it is. I decided to take my wife there one day for breakfast and we loved it! Everything we tried was over the top delicious. I ordered the Eggs Benedict, but requested corned beef instead of the ham. Amazing! Their coffee is awesome as... More

Service was very attentive and everything came hot! And because of what others said about the coconut cake we ordered a piece to share...glad we didn't miss... More

We ave eaten here many times, always satisfied. They have a senior menu for us old folks that is darn good. I like their grilled cod. They are famous for coconut cake, we tried it once, but wasn't a big hit with us. Breakfast is also very good.
