Best food, best people!

Best food, best people! This small jewel in Geneva New York is one of the nicest places I've been since moving to the finger Lakes a year ago! Their home made fare, such as their beef stew, or Irish shepherds pie, is to die for! Their fish and chips is great as well! I have been to this... read more

I was really excited about eating here on our anniversary trip, but left pretty annoyed. We sat at the bar because we were told it would be tough if we didn't have reservations, which I understand and was fine with. However, our bartender spent the entire time talking to the guy next to us and really never checked on us... More

Nice pub atmosphere, and very good food. The garlic mashed potatoes are excellent. I had the beef and Stilton pie which was rich and flavorful...I could licked the plate! My husband had the fish fry, which was ok, but over cooked. Large selection of beer. We will be back!

Restaurant pickings are surprisingly slim in Geneva. We went back a second time to Beef & Brew - we could walk there from our B&B on South Main Street. Good pies and stews. Servings can be very large - we did not have enough self-restraint to refrain from eating too much. A good choice in downtown Geneva

Beer list is fair, wine list is ok. Food was mediocre. Service a little off. Actually had server stop taking our order to help another server reset a table for 2 even though place was empty.

Good food, many choices for picky eaters. We had the stew, pot roast sandwich, roast beef and cheddar sandwich and the fish and chips. The craft beer was good too! Service was friendly and fun. Would definitely stop again.

Perfect casual pub, located in the center of Geneva, with delicious food!My husband ordered the beef stew, which was served on a bed of mashed potatoes, which was amazing! I had the pie with stilton cheese which was equally excellent. Start with the beer cheese soup. We shared a bowl, and were licking our spoons!

Service was great and the food was delicious. We had a very private booth in the back which was wonderful after a long day of winetasting!

Great food, great service. Will visit again when in Geneva! The kitchen was out of several things that evening, but followed the recommendation of our waitress and the food was excellent!
