Well attended by the local crowd.They had music the night we were there and was a good spot to go outside of the village of Cooperstown. There was smoke inside but we can still smoke in the bars in Montana, so not a problem for us.

The Genesee is a small town watering hole frequented with locals full of characters and welcoming. The surprise when visiting the Genny is that their food is very good and reasonable. You'll want to get a "Genny Burger!" It's out of this world!

The Genesee has been around for decades- family owned and personal. A fun bar when you walk in the front door with friendly service and a pool table, juke box, dart board, foosball, and cool things hanging on the walls. After walking through the bar you walk into a cool eating area which features delicious American food made in the... More
