Welcome to The Gate House

Gourmet Burger & Wood-Fired Pizza Cafe

Our goal at The Gate House is to provide our customers with an affordable and casual dining experience without compromising the quality of ingredients.

We believe that food is best in its most natural state, and despite the higher cost, we support humane and organic farm practices by serving cage-free eggs and organic dairy, and we operate 100% on solar and wind power. In the summer, our organic garden provides fresh herbs and many items come from our local farmers at the public market. We strive to bring our guests the tastes of our region, infused with world flavors, and prepared and presented in a healthy and beautiful way. Please enjoy.

Order Online

Pickup orders and gift cards are available for purchase online.

Note: We may suspend takeout orders when our volume exceeds our ability to fully accommodate our in-house guests.

Famous Burgers

Named after several Rochesterians who have left their mark in our community, our Angus ground chuck burgers are NEVER frozen, and are created using quality local ingredients and artisan rolls.

Landmark Pizzas

We pay homage to traditional Neopolitan pizza making techniques by using Tipo OO Italian flour, tomatoes from the San Marzano valley, fresh mozzarella and a 700 degree oven.

Sunday Brunch

The Gate House is now serving brunch on Saturdays and Sundays! Join us with your friends and family for a fantastic brunch experience, complete with mimosas, our famous Bloody Marys, and our chef-inspired brunch menu.

Current Events

We understand that people can assume that when they ask for the manager, they’ll be greeted by a man. That’s the patriarchy at work, deeply entrenched in our society, and difficult to shake off.

So we’d like you to know that if and when the time comes that you’d like to speak to someone in charge, she will likely be a woman. Perhaps a middle-aged woman, or a young woman, a pregnant woman, or an older woman, but she will certainly be able to handle your needs with swiftness, competency and compassion.

Not to take anything away from Chef Josh, who is most definitely The Man👨🏽‍🍳, or Co-owner Mike, who wisely recognizes that things are often best left to the women to handle.🤷🏻‍♂️
