    The menu includes things like artichoke dip, flatbreads, a Maryland lump crab cake, a lobster Cobb salad, buttermilk fried chicken, and a "Chester burger" made with a Pat LaFrieda patty.

    One of the greatest restaurants I've ever been to! The staff was extremely friendly and attentive, the food was delicious, the portions were reasonable, and I had an overall great time!

    Oysters and Steak Tartare are both great starters. The buttermilk fried chicken is a great comfort food option, the black pepper biscuits should come by the basket!

    My friend and I went for cocktails. I tried Westside, is not my favorite. I then order Gabbiano Chianti wine. Delish! Ambience is casual, good playlist!!

    The Bitches say: B. The Chester offered a reliable, elevated bar brunch in a fun beer garden space with the promise of a party for later brunchgoers. Read more

    Not a bad spot to grab drinks prior to dinner. Outdoor and indoor bar options, but be prepared to part with that $. Somehow dropped +$80 on 4 drinks; my entire dinner at Santina ended up costing less.

    The pink lemonade cocktail is great! The muscles are a large serving and each one is big too!

    Great bartenders! The entrees are huge so split if you want appetizers as well.

    In case they don't tell you, the outside Biergarten has a limited menu. Still a great vibe though!

    Service is friendly, but they take a while to place your order and to actually bring out the food. Best to go when you have no other plans afterwards.

    It was quiet, we had appetizers and drinks which were fine. Nothing to write home about, but also a good place to catch up with friends.

    The food here is great! Service not so much. Be prepared to wait at least 30-45 min for food to show up on your table.

    Some of the cocktails that sounded most appealing in the descriptions turned out to be extremely sweet, e.g. Cinnamon Hot Toddy, and Astor Martini.

    Kitchen is way way too slow. Took over 30 minutes to get oysters. Wait staff and manager mean well and try to be helpful. But they can't get the food on the table. Don't come here if you are hungry.

    Some people like the candied, I found it too sweet. The tuna is great if you can handle spicy!

    Jalapeño waffle fries are not very jalapeño-ey, but they are well done otherwise.

    Service was extremely slow during brunch despite not being busy. However management was flexible on the absurdity of it and gave a discount

    If you're there and it's dead, you better sit at the bar, otherwise the service sucks.
