“Yuk”
Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

No atmosphere. Poor service. Gave wrong order. Then overcharged. We pointed it out and asked them to correct the error.....and they brought back the same bill 10 minutes later. Food only average. Too many better places close by. Avoid.

“Too Much Like National Chains”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

Out of convenience, we ate at the Distillery in Victor several times during a recent long weekend in the area. I've been going to the original Distillery on Mt. Hope for decades, love the place. It has a great local tavern feel. This knock-off in Victor is quite the opposite. It has a corporate feel, like a Friday's. Food is average, but prices are high - $10 for wings, $10 for a mediocre burger, very typical. The Buffalo chicken dip was a standout. The place is also very loud, and seemed to be filled with middle-aged adolescents. There are ample TV's to watch a sporting event, but watch is all you'll do because of the background noise. Beer selection is good, but again seemed overpriced.

If you are looking for another national chain-like place to eat, the Victor Distillery is for you. If you want a great neighborhood sports-bar tavern experience with better food, go to the original on Mt. Hope Ave in Rochester.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I love Distillery. I have never had a bad a bad meal there. Great loaded fries. Burger is almost always spot on with temperature. Management has been very attentive and it is clear they believe in and strive for great customer service. We eat there Almost monthly.
