The reviews were inconsistent. Atmosphere was pubish. Beef on weck was something I've seen on travel shows but never had. It did not disappoint. Very tasty! Beer & cheddar soup also very good. Beer selection excellent. Too full for desserts. Staff very friendly &accomadating. Nice place to go after... read more

The food was very tasty and well prepared. Unfortunately, the meat portions were skimpy. We had the barbeque beef sandwich and a burger. We were there on trivia night (Tuesday) and the bar area was extremely noisy. Fortunately, we were seated in a different room, but the noise was still objectionable.

There were 5 of us for dinner without a reservation on a Saturday at 7:00. We went to a couple of other places that were booked so this was our Plan C. The bar area is trendy, but the restaurant is a bit dated looking. The food however was excellent. I had a burger which was cooked perfectly and tasted... More

I read a review about this restaurant and I wanted to see if it was true. What a wonderful restaurant with my wonderful server Mia an African America woman from the Finger Lakes. The review I read said the restaurant was racist but I didn't experience that at all.

The beer and cheddar soup was delicious. Also had the roast beef sandwich aujus. Very delicious as well. Lots of beers available but unfortunately I was not able to sample any of them on this visit!

Four adults went here for dinner on a Tuesday night. It was very noisy because it was trivia night in the bar. We tried sitting as far away from the bar as possible. The food was very good. The brisket sandwich was thin and should have a little more meat in it. It was delicious. The hamburger was cooked perfectly... More

Went here with a group of girlfriends. I had the beer cheddar soup, which was SOO good! I also had the pot roast sandwich which was also good! The other 5 loved their meals too! I'd go back.

My wife and I like to go for weekend drives in the beautiful finger lakes wine country and often stop for lunch at local eateries recommended by Tripsdvisor. Sad to say the recommendation for this restaurant was a mistake. We waited for 20 minutes while people coming after us had their orders taken. The interior was dirty, dark and dingy.... More
