Buffalo Wild Wings is a chain of sports bar/ restaurants throughout the U.S. Our local BW2's is a fun place for people of all ages to enjoy. The bar is separate from the restaurant area, but you can get service from the bar in the restaurant area all night. There are large screen televisions throughout and you can play online trivia with people in the restaurant and all over the U.S. It's a lot of fun!
Favorite Dish: Their specialty is, of course, the barbeque chicken wings. They have many different sauces to choose from and several different basket sizes as well. Great wings, wide selection of beers to choose from as well.
I highly recommend the sweet BBQ sauce on the wings and a Blue Moon ale out of Golden, CO (with an orange slice). Excellent combination!

I needed a break...needed to clear my head. Leave behind the questions about my son's health and future and find comfort food. As Rochester Mayo Clinic sees thousands of patients and their families, I am sure that I not alone in the quest for peaceful solitude and nourishment.
The Clinic has a multitude of fast food offerings in their various subway and skyway courts. I needed 'home' and found it at Jaspers.
Favorite Dish: The soup was AMAZING! Any of them are fabulous, I am sure but I chose one of the Vegetable soups. The bread that was brought I wanted to avoid but could not - The Daube Bakery fame is evident. Oh, my! Carb cares vanished...
January in Rochester need not be cold and lonely. Find you way down a quiet side street to Jaspers and rest while experiencing a calming sense of place.

This is a restaurant that is connected to Goonie's Comedy club in downtown Rochester.
It had very good food, and friendly people there for a lunch hour.
Food there was good, like any other pub and grill.
Favorite Dish: I had the Buffalo Chicken Wrap. It was very good.

Hmmm, pros and cons...Well Redroom certainly has a certain ambience that many would love. Dark, candlelit, lots of brick and great music that still allows for conversation. The staff was friendly, but I think we had an off night as a new waitress was training and service was a bit sketchy (no worries, they informed us right away the waitress was new and we were in no rush)
I'm not sure what the dating scene is like here, as Rochester is made up mostly of families with 2.5 children and white picket fences, but this would be a great place for a date.
There is a small bar here with top shelf stuff and the sign of any true bar, Guinness on tap. Sadly, the bartender was not skilled in drawing a perfect pint of Guinness. I'm quite happy to wait a few minutes for a properly pulled pint. Still, he was friendly enough. The food was ok, not out of this world, but no real complaints.
I somehow feel we went on an 'off' night and would like to give this place a second chance next time I'm in town.
Favorite Dish: I had a buffalo chicken pizza. Not off the charts, but it was good. Others had apple cider pork, steaks, and salmon, all had the same opinion as me.

I had a nice meal here. The service was excellent and the food was good.However, I don't consider the Redwood Room a special restaurant. The next time that I'm in Rochester, I want to try the restaurant upstairs.

Sontes is a nice Tapis restaurant. However, you need a "bunch" of these small portions to make up a "full meal" -- which is quite expensive. The service was outstanding, the wine list is extensive and you are allowed to taste wines before selecting a glass or bottle. I'm glad that I dined here but probably will not go back when I am in Rochester again.

Jasper's offers outstanding food, very-good wine and excellent service!I visit Southwestern Germany and Alsace two or three times a year. If Jasper's was located in Colmar and I had dined there, then I would highly recommend it to my friends traveling to Alsace. Enough said...
Favorite Dish: The veal-tenderloin medallions with spätzle and asparagus was absolutely wonderful and served with a most-delightful sauce -- the best veal that I've ever eaten anywhere in the world.

I don't really trust it when people say something is the best in Rochester. It's such a small town (pop. about 100,000) that the best can't really mean much. Well, that's what I thought of Newt's. They have decent hamburgers, but nothing amazing. They do have some interesting selections (peanut butter??), but I probably wouldn't go out of my way to get there. It's a very bar-like atomosphere (along with free popcorn that most people decided to throw on the floor rather than eat), and very young... so older people might feel a little left out.

John Hardy's is a local restaurant that is not over priced and has some good food. The sauce although still based on the original recipe of John hardy is not quite the same as what it was but is still really good. Has some foods that I haven't seen any where else in Rochester and a small town cafe atmosphere feels homey. been a local favorite for many yrs and one place in town that is not overly commercial. they do have some non barbecue options for the kids as well. The meat is smoked and you can get the sauce on the side.
It is one of my favorites.
Favorite Dish: hard to pick my favorite but I'll go with the regular shreded pork plate mild sauce on the side with fried okra and jojo potatoes. The pork is most and good with or with out the sauce and that's part of why I like it, I went with the reguler plate cuz the portion of meat is pretty good, not sure if they still use the same portions. The fried okra is good, and I know of no other place to get it in Rochester. It's breaded okra then deep fried. Although If your not into the fried thing they also have stewed, but I've never tried it. jojo's are round thin sliced potatoes that are sliced in the the kitchen from fresh potatoes. all reguler plates come with garlic bread as well.

I went to this restaurant for a shop (Mystery Shopper) and took a co-worker with. As I had never been to a Famous Dave's, I didn't know what to expect. The staff were impressive! Not 'impressive' as an Applebee's or other 'in-your-face' restaurants, but genuinely nice. The interior is a bit cheesy, but the food smelled great.
Favorite Dish: I had the barbecue Short Ribs (3 itty bitty ribs), with a particularly good potato salad, corn on the cob, and a cornbread muffin. The ribs were fantastic, and the muffin was superb. It had the little bits of corn that is quite rare in cornbread.
My dining accomplice had the Famous Barbecue Burger (I must only hang around People that eat hamburgers!), that came with a jalapeño pickle (wasn't expecting that). Thick sliced fries/chips on the side. She said it was perhaps the best burger in Rochester.
I think I had about a half gallon of lemonade and she had a half gallon of Sierra Mist. The server kept bringing many glasses.
