We spent an hour looking for something to eat and couldn't even find a fast food joint that was open at 11:45pm. After visiting several pub style restaus in the downtown area and finding the kitchens closed, we were directed to Acme. We got takeout. The food was flavorful and prepared with care. The tater tots were AMAZING. Also the... More

Acme's pizza is New York Style thin and to die for. Their wings are not bad either. They have many drafts and bottles of beer. They have pinball and a jukebox and TV's to watch games on. Their canjun tots, and fried pickles, as well as subs are all filling and tasty. They also do a great happy hour. This... More

This is a great bar. The food is delicious especially the wings. (They also participate in real beer week.) So they have lots of specialty and craft beers on tap! Pool table in back. Use restroom with caution (haha) On street parking

One of the best dive bars I've ever been to. Great pub food, good beers, and pretty cheap. The atmosphere is great.

Surprisingly delicious pizza! It's dingy and smells like piss/beer, but the beers are actually good, and the pizza is great!

A group of us met after work. Basically this place is a bar located in a busy city neighborhood . It's kind of hard to find a place to parking at times. Inside is very warm and friendly.The variety of Beer in this place is astonishing. A glass case with lots and lots of different bottled beers. The food offered... More

In the Monroe bar district in Rochester, this is arguably the best one. Always has a good crowd, and beer specials. Fun place to watch a game. Only complaint is the hallway leading to the bathroom downstairs is kinda shady, but overall, great atmosphere. Always friendly people, and cheap pizza.

They serve the best pizza we've found had since moving to Rochester a year ago - thin yet substantial, with a chewy crust. The beer selection is great; we recently discovered Founders beer, which is a Michigan brew that we hadn't been able to find in New York state, even at Beers of the World! I thought my husband would... More
