There are several sections in this restaurant but have only seen it busy enough once to use all of them. Can be noisy at times around the bar with talk and loud music. The service tends to be slow but the food is good, when you finally get it. Nice selection of beer, local prominent which is nice and it... More

Some of the best salads around can be had at the Back Nine. Wide selection of beers. Not the best place to go if you have to be on your way quickly after dinner. Can get a bit crowded and noisy at the bar. Nice collection of sports memorabilia on the walls.

Stopped after work with some colleagues for drinks. Service was great, beer cold and not so loud that we could not hear one another.

When we were seated the waitress took our orders for appetizers and entrees. After about 20 minutes she came back to say the chef said he would not take any orders for 1/2 hour! We were shocked, asked to speak to the manager who assured us the food was on its way. Our waitress came back to say she had... More

Great place to hang out with friends for a drink or a meal. Food was excellent. Mie was a great server. Arrived about 11:45am on a Thursday and after waiting about 5 minutes we had to look around to find anyone to seat us. It took quite some time for our order to arrive at our table so I recommend...

We stopped here for a bite. I was totally surprised at the extensive menu. From appetizers to entree's. I had the quesadilla's which were very good; my daughter raved about the salad she had; my grandson didn't like his cheeseburger, but loved the fries. Pricing is reasonable. Nicely laid out - separate bar for parties. Patio with comfy seating. Main... More

Wednesday lunch special - $5 burger and beer! Best deal in Rochester. Great place for a quick lunch any day but Wednesday is a deal.

A nice atmosphere. The adjacent roadway actually adds a nice surf sound that is pleasant. A semi-casual menu with plenty of choices.

We were six adults and three kids. We called to make sure they were serving brunch, but when we got there, they had only the regular menu, and none of it was in any way breakfasty. No eggs, pancakes, home fries, waffles--nada. We were under s time constraint, so we ordered for the kids, as two of the adults had... More
