Not only is the food fantastic but the staff is unbelievable! My family was in Rochester recently for an extended period of time due to my mom being hospitalized. It was a very difficult time for my f...amily and the staff here made us feel so welcome, almost like we were a part of their family! I cannot possibly say enough good things about this restaurant. The staff there will always hold a special place in my family's heart � See More

This place is a total staple of Rochester. Super family oriented and welcoming. Meals are always huge and tasty! Show up early on the weekends because everyone loves a good breakfast!

The food was delicious and plentiful, the setting was homey and friendly, and our server was a fellow fan of The Who. Whats not to like?

Been going to Mt. Hope Diner for years. Always take out of town friends and family for the best breakfast in town. Now they ask when they come in town and Mt. Hope never disappoints. My favorite diner.

Truely one of the most poorly run and dirtiest establishments in all of Rochester. If the rude staff and disgusting booths don't dissuade you, the place is literally crawling with bugs! My girlfriend ...and I went today and we had to move tables due to a 2" cluster of over 50 ants at our booth with a trail across the whole right side of the wall. I brought it up quietly to the server as to not draw attention. She moved us to the other side of the diner and brought us our food. They messed up my order so I sent it back because at that point I had lost my appetite. At the register I asked them to adjust the bill for my meal only! The manager refused to adjust the bill and gave me attitude for wasting the food. How are these people still in business??? Clean up your restaurant!!!!! See More

What makes it a pleasant place, is the people. Mind you the food is excellent but the way they treat you is just is great.

We have been going to MountbHope for years. It is like a home away from home. It's lively, always festive in one way or another, and they take good care of everyone. Food is good diner-style - very fi...lling, well-prepared. See More

For those who long for the days of old....
Where the waitress knows your name and what your drink is...
Where they take your order, without writing it down.......
Where your coffee cup never goes dry...
Where your meal arrives hot and delicious...
Where the place is cozy and familiar....
Where the bill is fair, and worth every penny....

I've gone here for years. Great All American Diner. My dad and his wife (Fred and Jane) were regular customers for eight years. When they became sick and then died Mike and their favorite waitresse...s mourned with us. The Mount Hope Diner is the best! Fast service, great food, good price, friendly staff!! See More

Several students from the UofR and I, wanted to enjoy a breakfast as part of celebrating our senior year as well as D-Day 2017. The staff was completely rude. Upon entry into the diner we were not dir...ected to a seat and was forced to wait almost an hour without a menu and service. After 45 minutes passed, an individual from my party had to go request menus. We were still not serviced. We decided it was in our best interest to leave as we felt that we were not being respected nor appreciated for supporting this business. As we proceeded to exit, a rude employee commented "Great, we're good".

I am appalled, and beyond upset about this experience. I am a mature Rochester native and have never experienced so much disrespect in a business that prides itself on providing optimal customer service to paying respectful consumers.

I will NEVER eat here and will continue to inform others of the poor service and disrespect.
