The greatest bar on the planet, hands down! I have a hard time getting myself to go somewhere else at this point!

Gem in the heart of the city

An incredible gem in the heart of the city. Awesome food, great prices, exceptional service. The atmosphere was fun, and full of great pop culture references… We had a blast.

Local art on the walls

Their mashed potatoes are absolutely amazing. The buffalo tofu bites are even better… The whole staff is always welcoming and friendly. I also love that they have local art hanging on the wall that changes every so often.

If you haven’t been here you must check it out.

Best chicken sandwich ever!

Law & Order: KFC – best chicken sandwich ever! Drinks are always unique and delicious: Not sure what you want? Ask the staff, they make great recommendations 🙂

Nerdgasm. This is Rochester’s answer to Hogwarts.

Awesome dungeon-esque doors, impeccable decor, an apothecary look behind the bar.. every detail is artfully perfected. The drinks take their namesake from some of the greatest characters we have ever known and loved, and there is a secret menu to boot…
