The food was so so! The New York strip was good. It was cooked just about perfect but they don't offer much with it. The side of mixed veggies are bland an have no flavor. The mashed potatoes tasted like sour milk and dejion mustard. I almost spit it back out of my mouth upon first taste. Yuck!! My fiancé... More

The food was good, the beer choices were extensive. A friendly bustling place for dinner. We enjoyed our BBQ ribs, vegetable choices could be better, but it's a fine meat and potatoes kind of place. Cute curtained booths.

We did an overnight in Geneva and were looking for something local and different in restaurants. We choose Beef and Brew because of its rating. The atmoshpere is quaint -- you will feel like you are in an English or Irish pub. It can get a little noisy if there's a large group there, but it's fine for families. They... More

Food selection is good. Our meals were two of the pie selections, good not great. The service, however, was great. We were more excited to just relax and have a beer. What made it special was the person who served us. She was quick, attentive and intuitive. We were refreshed and she was a great part of that. Had other... More

On Thursday night, our first night in Geneva. We found this awesome place to eat. Oh my goodness the brisket was out of this world. So tender, you did not need to use a knife. The waiter, a young teacher that works in Spain and comes back to Geneva every summer to work was beyond friendly and attentive. I already... More

Out for our usual motorcycle ride looking for a new place to try lunch. Today we decided to eat at the Beef and Brew mainly because of the reviews. The waiter was very polite, attentive and informative. My husband had his usual cheeseburger w/bacon and coleslaw, which he enjoyed. I decided to have a turkey wrap and try the smashed... More

Went to the Beef & Brew upon recommendation. All in our group had sandwiches, myself the marinated brisket sandwich which was both tender & flavorful. Service was prompt & cordial. A good overall meal & not too expensive.

We're passing through, and the lady at the Hampton Inn mentioned Beef and Brew as one of several recommendations. My Chicken Pesto sandwich was excellent! Reasonably priced, and served pronto. We are glad we went! Thank goodness it wasn't another night at a national chain. Instead, a local establishment with excellent food and service!

My husband and I were on a mini vacation touring some of the finger lakes. We spent an evening in Geneva and happened to stumble across this fantastic quaint restaurant. The waiter and staff were efficient and friendly, not to mention I had the BEST fish and chips I have ever eaten. Wowzers! Great place to eat and enjoy the... More

Monday's lunch was outstanding, many reasonable choices. The special was open face prime rib sandwich! Tender and extremely well priced! We would definitely come again. Geneva closes on Mondays but this restaurant was the only one open in town, except for hotel dining.

Thank Marcia M
