The Office bills itself as a taproom, and a fellow we met last year -- we've had a place on Canandaigua Lake for 50 years -- recommended we stop in to try some local beers. So on a rainy Tuesday afternoon we did. The office had 8 taps going -- four with locally-made Naked Dove -- but we couldn't get served. There were two old guys at one end of the bar, each with a half-filled pint-glass, and two 40-something women at the other end, again each with a half-filled pint. We sat at the bar for 10 minutes. The woman bartender was in and out during those 10 minutes and never made eye contact. The owner was also past us a half dozen times -- asking the women if they'd have another and placing an NFL bet with one of the old guys, but we weren't greeted, we weren't asked if we wanted a drink, we were totally ignored. After 10 minutes, we left, and we're crossing Eric's Office off our list. Not sure what's wrong with us-- 60-something boomers with a yen for local beer -- but they didn't want our business. Think twice about giving them yours.

Eric has been in business for many years. If you are looking for a local place with good food and nice people, Eric's is the place. I enjoyed being outdoors last week. Inside is a bit noisy for me so if I want to carry on a deep conversation I would go elsewhere. It is apparent that Eric takes great pride in his business and if you are not satisfied, just ask for Eric as he will easily take care of it. It does get real busy at times (the local's know the good spots!). Eric's is a great local spot for a good value!

This restaurant is always busy, but the food and atmosphere is the reason! Love that they have local beers on tap and portion sizes are huge. Sometimes the wait is the only deterrant to going here.
