“The Best”
Review of Swan Market

Swan Market
Ranked #3 of 1,328 Restaurants in Rochester
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $5 - $10
Description: All meat at Swan Market is hand-cut, all sausage hand-made by owner Barry Fischer, who apprenticed with German master butchers to bring you a taste of Germany that's authentic down to the last detail. Swan's renowned German lunches are served Wednesday through Saturday from 11 to 2. Grab a seat at one of the communal tables and hoist a glass of imported German beer. It's impossible to go away hungry! There's also live German music on the last Thursday and Friday of each month. Wan can also cater events of any size, with anything from cold-cut trays to a full pig roast.

Great Germany food in a simple family deli style. Shared tables, great people and beer. You can't go wrong. Don't mind the neighborhood.

Having lived in Germany for several years, we had a yen for good German food. Hubby loves wursts of any kind. He was thrilled beyond belief. Not a sausage fan myself so i got the cordon bleu. $8.95. ridiculously cheap. Great, friendly service. In a bit of a sketchy neighborhood, but still o.k. Waitress was fantastic. Real German beer in big glass steins. Go there, but be prepared to wait.

We celebrated Memorial with family outside of Rochester and we were blessed to have brats on the menu! I had never heard of Swan Market before this - but as the locals have testified - they are a local favorite...and are they right! Any time we return to the area again, we will put in orders with our daughter and son in-law for consumption then and there as well as to take some goodies home!
