We had a good meal. Our waitress was very friendly, and attentive. It isn't a restaurant to get dressed up for, what is anymore unless you want to go to a restaurant that is very high priced. This restaurant has a range in prices, and a variety of menu selections. We would go again if we were in the area.

Everything about this restaurant was delightful. The decor was great and the food was delicious. The beer/cheese soup was an unusual and tasty appetizer. My beef pie reminded me of French onion soup with chunks of yummy meat. It was topped with a melt-in-your-mouth pastry. I would have awarded five stars, but my husband was disappointed with his fish fry.... More

Beef & Weck kept appearing on menus in the Finger Lakes. Finally, I tried the sandwich, and really enjoyed the bun's seedy, salty top coating perched on a mound of tasty beef. My wife raved about her shepherd's pie. Good beer, too. We wanted to come back for the "whole pig roast" on the weekend-- all you can eat! Maybe... More

I had looked forward to the big selection of 35 drafts. Place was basically dead. Owner was talking to the staff bragging about how they make more money by not pouring full 16 ounce pints, which seems unethical and if not illegal. I'm never going back. Stay away from this mis-managed rip off joint.

Chicken kabobs weren't done through while other things were over-done and dried up. Piano player beats on the piano instead of playing it. Pricey for the food, service and atmosphere combined. We put too much into everybody else's great ratings on this one.

Good food and great craft beers. Was a very hot day and we were very happy to be able to sit and relax inside this quaint pub.

We had a very comfortable and enjoyable meal here. The service was very friendly, there were plenty of meal options across a range of prices, and the food was prepared well. We especially liked the atmosphere of the restaurant, which felt like a tavern. The food was, as the name suggests, hearty and focused on central and eastern European dishes.

This was our second time eating at the Beef & Brew. Service and food were very good Restaurant was only a 1/2 mile walk from our hotel. Price for a class of wine higher than average, but all other prices were reasonable.

We arrived here on a busy Saturday night only to find they had somehow lost our reservation. No problem, they said, it may be a small wait, but we will get you a table. So we sat at the bar and attempted to order two glasses of wine. First of all, their choices of wine by the glass are extremely... More
