“Great spot, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2012

We made another wine trip to the Finger Lakes and stayed with friends in the Rochester area. They took us to Pineapple Jack's near their home. We were surprised that they were so busy on a weekday night. We sat at one of the bars and a young girl was working by herself. She was very busy, but greeted us with a big smile and we had our drinks in no time. The tropical decor was great, the music was just what we needed, but watching this young girl (Morgan) work was a treat. She never stopped filling drink orders and yet made everyone feel like she was only taking care of them. We asked how long she had been doing this (she looks like very early 20's) - she told us that it was her second night of bartending alone - ever. Amazing!!! We will return again and hope that she is there!

“Wow”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2010

I havent been to Pineapple Jack's in a while. The food had gotten so much better, along with the atmosphere. Plus, service was fantastic. More of a bar scene, but if you get there a little earlier (before 8) it's still pretty relaxed. I'll definitely be back.

“Cavernous, cold atmosphere, gimmicky, smells like smoke.”

It would be unfortunate if a traveler ate here and formed an opinion of Rochester based on their experience. The place is awful. If you MUST eat in that part of town, there are probably 4-5 better places within a 2 minute drive. Pull into the parking lot of the Wegman's supermarket and ask a local.
