Great Beer and Food

If I lived closer this would be my neighborhood go to. I love the beer selection and like even more that all staff can answer my questions, particularly about stouts which I love. As a vegetarian I also appreciate the unique flavorful dishes available ~ try the CLT. Fried pickles are crunchy but... read more

Plenty of places advertise hundreds of beers. It takes guts to compete as a beer lover's tavern while limiting selection to a few dozen brews. Tap & Mallet carefully chooses all kinds of beers, ales, porters, ciders and other varieties -- including rare finds. Prices are reasonable. Service is great. Location in Rochester's South Wedge is nice and edgy. Food... More

I like that they do not have mixed drinks here...keeps away the younger "party" crowd. Many different beer options that you can't find at many bars. They have the best vegetarian chili!!! and their spinach and artichoke dip was pretty fantastic as well!

met a friend for an overdue catch up and chat session here, for a few beers and some food. Beer selections are very extensive... With the current options on available clipboards for review. All seemed expertly poured and served in proper style glassware. Bar staff congenial and helpful. Food menu was very nice, I had a Cuban sandwich that was... More

We went here because it was on the top three pubs list. Sat at bar for 20 minutes before a snooty guy with dreads walks up, looks at us, and walks away without saying a word, We got up and left immediately. Horrible service, Atmosphere was really snobby too, Draft beers were WAYYY overpriced. Will never go back. Do not... More

Tap and Mallet has a ridiculously good, rotating beer menu. The bartenders are knowledgeable and can give good recommendations. The food is average. Not terrible, but not the best I've had.

What a selection of beer! Maybe too much, if that is possible. As usual, when I go to places like this, I am only able to try two different brews. I went with a recommendation of a local IPA, and also a black IPA. Both were great. We had sandwiches and appetizers. The wings with Mallet sauce were some of... More

We dined on a Friday night at the Tap & Mallet, and we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The restaurant was familiar to two of us (from the local area) and new to two of us (from outside the area). It was a good suggestion. We really enjoyed the food, including several very imaginatively prepared and tasty vegetarian options, and the... More
