We loved this place - great food and fantastic beer. We would happily return if we're in Rochester again. The belgian beers are stronger than regular beer and you can get smaller glasses and, I think, flights as well. Great pub food; nothing about this...More

Smaller place to meet some friends and visit. The Tvs were set up for sports the night I was in but it was great. I did not have to yell to visit.

My first visit here and I was not disappointed! The Bloody Mary was awesome as was the toastie sandwich! Very friendly staff! Great selection of craft beers if that is what you are looking for! A cozy, friendly bar and restaurant......probably Rochester’s answer to Cheers!

Thoroughly enjoyed our experience here. Delicious food, a couple glasses of wine, and a wonderful server. I had a 1/2 beet salad along with a toastie (panini), my cousin had the toastie with a cup of soup. So glad we stopped.

The first time we were here was because we had a gift certificate. This time we were back because this place has just about everything we like in a dining experience. Smaller-more intimate, great service, reasonable prices (for the quality-not quantity received), good food. On...More

Stopped in for an early evening drink. So many choices. Regulars weighed in. So many good choices of beers that I haven't seen elsewhere. We will be back
