We went out to dinner and I had very good pear salad with chicken. Also the walleye special was good. But the popcorn with beer was excellent.

We happened to be here on a night they were celebrating Oktoberfest, so it was a little German that night instead of Irish, but was still great! The Guinness was yummy, as was the Shepherd's Pie and we really enjoyed sitting at the bar, talking...More

Sat at the bar. Bartender Lee most un friendly bartender I have ever met. Always seemed mad. Margarita was good. Food was mediocre. Won't be back.

There aren't many restaurants in Rochester with a nice outdoor view, most are just outside. So, it was with some excitement that I found this place located on a pond. However, all that quickly faded over the course of dinner, which started at 7:30pm. We...More

I ordered the bacon wrapped sirloin steak. It was not cooked medium rare as I ordered and the bacon was just gross. It was as if it had been boiled in water. Now I know that probably isn't how it was prepared but that is...More
