I visited for the first time, after being told how great the place is. I was impressed by the openness of the floor plan and yet there were booths with high back to allow for privacy and conversation without yelling. The wait staff started with an interruption of our conversation to draw attention to her appearance. There was a bit... More

We needed a late lunch after a 6+ hour drive and knew that the Tap & Mallet was serving all day. We had a large salad, chicken tacos (3 of them) and a turkey Ruben. This is pub food, nothing special, but tasty and satisfying after a long day's travel. As usual, there are enough beers at the T&M to... More

Our group came here for dinner after work. We had heard very good things about this place. The first problem was that I was served the wrong side dish, but I was ok with that. Next, my burger (ordered it cooked medium) came extremely rare in the middle. I brought it to the attention of our server, who apologized and... More

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
