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.

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.

Our accountant notes that we invest a significant amount on decor and plants, asking if itโ€™s worth it. The answer is always YES. People notice, and appreciate the seasonal changes, the attention to detail, and the greenery. Thatโ€™ll never change. ๐Ÿชด๐Ÿ๐ŸŒป๐ŸŽƒ๐ŸŽ„ ...
