We were attending our first play at RBTL on a Wednesday night, so made a reservation for 4 people for 4:30. When I called they said usually 5-5:30 patrons arrive for the theater, so we decided to go a half hour early so that it...More

The weather was perfect for outside seating. The food was good but not great. The "Sirloin Tip Hash" was not really a hash - it was a number of pieces of steak on their cubed "home fries" with egg and too much sauce. My companion...More

We found ourselves in Rochester on our way home to Seattle and decided to stop by the Gate House Cafe for lunch. We were delighted by the fun decor and happy with the tasty food. I particularly enjoyed the asparagus, goat cheese, beet salad. The...More

Very cool place. Food was good. Service was pretty good. The only negative? We've been there several times and the bartenders are rarely friendly. I don't get it. Typically one bartender working a long bar AND service bar. Not good. No wonder the bartenders all...More
