From their web site: The Scotch 'N Sirloin is a Central New York landmark. Established in 1967 in Syracuse and 1972 in Rochester "The Scotch" serves central New York the finest aged USDA steaks, fresh fish from Boston and specialty dishes available anywhere. Everything from appetizers through dessert is homemade and cooked to order. Our rustic setting, Wine Spectator "Award of Excellence" winning wine list and professional courteous staff will round out your visit. If your plans do not include dinner, enjoy a cocktail by our large open-pit fireplace in our Coppertop Lounge.
The Rochester location had a lot of charm for being located in a strip mall. Dark, candle-lit atmosphere, with lots of wood and stone - it feels kind of like a log cabin inside. Open kitchen. Very large bar which makes a fine place to wait for your table by the fire. Many decent draft beer choices, with regular tap specials.
The food: simple and substantial. Big steaks, big chicken breasts, big hunks of fish. Prices are in the $20-$35 range for most things.

2006-04-30 19:17:02 A lot of competing steakhouses just opened, so the competition is heating up. —BrentIrvine
2006-10-26 14:13:01 Had our anniversary dinner here this past Saturday. Wife & I were totally satisfied with our Prime Rib/Steak respectively. Acorn Squash was overdone but great w/ brown sugar. Mint Parfait's were oustanding for dessert! —PeteB
2007-07-10 15:16:32 I was just in there, so I can guarantee it's still open. It's super old school, complete with salad bar. If you're looking for trendy and cosmopolitan, this is not it. —RocGirl
2007-08-30 16:45:42 The Rochester, Buffalo, and Syracuse locations have been around for a long time. The Rochester location still looks the same as the first time I ate there in the 80's.
The food is ok, but there are better steak houses in Rochester now.
Just an average steakhouse, similar food quality to the chain Houstons. —MrRochester
2008-01-24 22:19:53 Nice place for family dining. I wouldn't call it upscale but it certainly isn't applebee's either. Nice place to go if you have a family with well-behaved children. —JohnCocktosten
2008-05-17 21:13:38 great steak —Dustin
2009-01-07 08:38:43 Great place- we love the Teriyaki sirloin and the salmon. Salad bar is wonderful, though we miss the old caesar garlic dressing. Interesting concept of rotating wait staff makes you feel like you have a "team" of servers (who look like medical interns in their white coats). Our favorite staff: Ashley and Brian. I hope they continue their 35% wine discounts on 35 wines on Monday and Tuesday nights, but I fear it was just for 2008. —LeGrandChien
2009-03-21 18:17:52 Although I don't think my fish was a "big hunk" (above) meaning it was small for the price, it was good, and the place is just tacky enough to make me beleive it is still 1975, when canned peas and cottage cheese were exotic salad toppings. We had a great time and very adequate meal for the price. Staff was good and mostly attentive (what is with the long white coats on the food servers? To look like butchers or lab technicians?) Would go again... —SFear
2009-04-10 21:28:32 Amazing salad bar, amazing Steak Terryiaki, and a great "team" of servers like mentioned above. We love the marinated mushrooms and artichokes on the salad bar. Very reasonable if you use a Buy One Get One free coupon found in the Entertainment book/Enjoy the City book. —ChefRamsey
2009-05-07 11:53:30 This restaurant is amazing. Definitely not trendy but has a very rustic feel with the wooden floors, heavy wooden doors, and the bar. This place is great in the winter...come early to allow for a "happy hour" in the bar, where you can enjoy the wonderful smelling fire, a reasonably priced drink, and eat peanuts and throw the shells on the floor. The salad bar is great and the shrimp scampi with curried rice is amazing. Use the entertainment book coupon and you can have a great evening for cheap! It's a good place for couples young and old as well as families. —GoldenGirl
2009-07-21 20:15:02 We went here last week. Wonderful. My boyfriend ordered the Teriyaki steak and he loved it (too sweet for my taste if you ask me!) I got the petite filet which was simply seasoned. Both of us ordered them medium rare and they were a TRUE medium rare...FANTASTIC. Definitely not trendy, but worth every penny, and I'd go back in a heartbeat. —KellyT
2010-06-06 12:09:58 Great Chicken French, great salad bad, and my wife was very happy with her petite filet. Good diverse wine list. Not cheap, but not exorbitant either, and there are coupons in the Entertainment book, as someone else here mentioned. Highly recommended. —TimCrist
2013-01-23 07:32:13 According to their website, "Rochester Location Permanently Closed" —UncleScam
2013-01-23 11:32:26 It is awful that they closed, this was always a reliable good meal. The place was always packed, not sure why they went out of business. —karlos
2013-01-23 14:15:12 damn, i always wanted to try this place out too. Just never got around to it —Damiankumor
2013-01-23 16:59:38 Suz and I had a cpl anniversary dinners here. Very dissapointed it closed —peteb
2013-01-24 16:54:39 Why are people on just about every Rochester-related website making such a big deal about this? —EileenF
