This is a favorite for me and the wife any time we are in Rochester. The smell coming from this place as you walk up makes your mouth water. Great staff, huge beer selection and the BBQ is amazing.

The family and I really enjoyed an early dinner at this restaurant. The food was good, the atmosphere (especially if you sit overlooking the falls) was great, and the service was fast.

Been here a lot- atmosphere is great but not for quiet intimate dinners... Live bands are excellent. Food is beyond!

Great food but it is always busy. If you can make a reservation in advance that is your best bet. Very popular but definitely worth the wait

We were here for a late lunch/early dinner and there was no wait. Great bar-b-que choices with many sides. The brisket was lean and tender. The black bean pulled pork nachos were large and flavorful. The service was fast and friendly. A fun eclectic place.
