One of my favorite places to visit when in Rochester. They have hands down the best Cuban I've ever had. It's was a little slow on service and our waitress wasn't great but it will not deter me from going there. Everything I have had has always been very good.

Stopped in for wings and a drink with my husband and our friend. Our waitress forgot our drinks and part of our order. It took probably 40 minutes for our food. Won't go back.

Some co-workers and I went there for dinner after a course at RIT. I ordered a cherry cider which was excellent. My friends ordered two beers that were also great. I ordered a buffalo grilled chicken sandwich and criss-cut fries. I really liked both. The roast beef sandwich one person got looked phenomenal and the burger looked juicy. Wait staff... More

We went for a Saturday afternoon lunch. My husband likes the beer selection. His beer and my soda were the ONLY thing our waitress got right. Husbands burger had toppings when he asked for it to be plain, I got a steak salad when I ordered spinach salad. She actually tried to tell me that I ordered the steak .... More

Very cool spot on Jefferson Road, not far from RIT - which means you can expect to see budding young engineers in here after 7:00 pm. Very good foot and about a million different types gold beer. The service is awesome. This is a team they really cares about their customers. Most bartenders are quite knowledgeable on what's on tap... More

My family and I drove past MacGregor's and it seemed to always be a happening place. There were many cars. We decided to eat there after the RIT homecoming hockey game and we were disappointed. It was a fun place with many people but the food was only decent. Usually I appreciate any food but here is was just disappointing.... More

This large restaurant/bar has a pub vibe between the food menu and the extensive beer menu. Our server was competent, and the "tatchos" we started with were very well received being both hot and crunchy. The burgers were as advertised, but both chicken sandwiches were small breasts that didn't quite fill up the slightly stale bun. The Cobb salad was... More

This was my 4th visit to the MacGregor's on Empire Blvd. We have celebrated my daughter's college graduation, her birthday and on our first visit, she was called by her future employer offering her a job. So, yes, there is a sentimental attachment. That said, the food is amazing. From the nachos and cheese sticks on the appetizer menu, to... More

Food was very good, but service was slow even though they were not busy. It was convenient to our hotel.

Four of us staying the night in Rochester, NY....met longtime friends at MacGregor's Grill and Tap Room near our hotel. As it was late, we had a light meal...although, they have an interesting and diverse menu. We had drinks first...they have a full bar with heavy concentration on beers, ales, micro brews, locals, and imports. Our orders consisted of Caesar... More
