Went to the Tap and Mallet for the first time yesterday. My wife,son and I had a few beers and appetizers. The bar was friendly the food was very good and the beer selection was excellent. The service was great. Had a fantastic conversation with two elderly gentlemen that made the time fly by. I would definitely visit again.

Smoked salmon BLT was very good, aioli was perfect. Here for lunch on a work day so no beer sampled from an amazing list. Very nice wood and brick decor, simple and not overdone with bar kitsch. I must come back.

Nice pub with good menu pub and dining room seating and outdoor/street-side in good weather. Our server was attentive and checked on us constantly - mostly to assure us that the kitchen was also catering to a pre-wedding dinner in the full dining room. The menu is not huge and over promising, mostly favorites and locally sourced specials. Good (enormous)... More

Tap & Mallet seemed to be the place creating most buzz in our short visit to Rochester and it certainly delivered on the beer and food front. Atmosphere-wise, it was quiet, being a midweek night during college vacation, but it's easy to see how the place would be jumping on a more typical night. Great beer selection and very tasty...

Visited while on business in the area. Had the Fish & Chips and a couple of beers and was thoroughly satisfied for under $40. I'll definitely be stopping again

They have a million kinds of beer, but they don't serve Guinness here. I was craving one, and was pretty bummed that a place with a pub menu that includes Bangers n Mash has decided it would rather not include Guinness draught in its lineup of 50 plus beers. I asked the bartender why as we walked out to go... More

Tap and Mallet has varied food menu, and if you like burgers or poutine, then this place is up your alley. Their bacon scallion poutine, regular, and buffalo chicken are foodgasm for my mouth. The beyond the jelly burger is treat as well. If you are looking at appetizers start with some buffalo tofu bites. There are a myriad of... More

I really want to like this place but I went on the wrong night and it just ruined it for me. They were having an event in their side room so it was a bit crowded in the other room but they found a space for my guest and me. We then found out that because of the event, they... More
