I couldn't pass up the chance to head over to this joint after learning how many taps this place had. Besides, my hotel was just down the road. The beer selection was good, with a large variety of ales, stouts, hefeweizens and lagers on tap. Nothing really jumped out at me except for Sierra Nevada Celebration. In July?? Must have been a left over keg from back in November. I stuck with a couple of Ithaca DIPAs which were very tasty. The food was pretty good, with large portions that I had a hard time finishing. Service was average. Basically, the bartender ignored you unless you asked for something. We went on a Sunday evening and the place was nearly empty. Maybe the locals were resting for the upcoming work week. Overall, this is a good place for BAs to come and have a pint. With over 130 taps there are plenty of beers to choose from. If work brings me to Western NY again, I'll definitely head over to Macgregor's.

MacGregors is my all time favorite place in Rochester. Their wings and boneless wings are not to miss! Especially their Chipotle BBQ sauce, that's definitely one of their most unique items and definitely the best sauce they offer.
Their outstanding selection of drafts and reasonable prices are a win too. Their specials are great, usually different selection than most places for an affordable $9.00/pitcher.
Whenever I leave Rochester and come back to visit, I always have to go here. This location is far better than all of the rest. I think I have only ever been
Disappointed with this place maybe one time out of the last 30 times I've been here.
Do not miss :) the food is delicious and the beer is outstanding!

A decent spot if you are in Rochester. Settled in last night just prior to the Bruins game.. The beer selection is large.. Too large. The first sip of the first beer told the story. Dirty tap lines everywhere. It's one of these places from what I consider the last generation of craft beer bars. Ones where more tap lines were considered better. There is no way they can sell that selection of beer and keep their inventory fresh... a taste says it all. Don't get me wrong, the selection, itself, is pretty nice... But a disappointment that My Great Lakes Commodore Perry IPA had that obvious dirty line taste...
Service was fine, but a little thin. Once you caught their eye, they were fine, but after sitting at the bar for 2+ hours, you'd think you'd get a "how are you doing" at least once...
Had wings and onions rings. The wings were actually pretty darn good. Nice to have a place make a VERY spicy wing when they call it one. The sweet/Chili was also very good.
Onion rings were sadly frozen versions.... (I had expected more)
Bottom line... If you are in the area, it's fine. Don't go out of your way.

Compared to other places I've been, this bar has an impressive variety of top-notch beers; based on pure volume of different beers, this is one of the best places to grab a drink.
Additionally, their food is tasty. They have a number of dishes worth trying--most of them being of the heart-attack-inducing variety! It's a really cool place!

The place is filthy, the food made me sick. The glasses taste and smell like feet beer due to the rinse system. All around horrible place to be, have been here twice. I will never go back. Only good thing is variety of beer but much of which tastes old or flat. The owner and his counterpart seem to be very bad people according to the locals.

Great atmosphere to hang out with friends. They have TVs with multiple games on, darts, pool, arcade games and the back patio is great during the summer.
The quality of the food isn't the best, it's best described as bar food. The appetizers are great to share.
Service is a bit lacking, they have a significant turnover on the waitresses and bartenders. Selection is top notch for Rochester, there's always new beers to try.
With over 125 beers to choose from at a given time, you'll never run out of things to try. They gladly provide samples before you buy and you can choose the 11oz or 20oz mugs.

Beer selection is one of best in the RIT/Henrietta. They often have rarer or some hard to find beers as special for a week/month. Now they are offering "flights" of beers of certain style or from a certain brand. Each flight comes with 6 5.5 oz pours and its nice to be able to compare all of the different beers.
However, the service is not the best, even on Thursday nights when its not terribly busy.
The biggest problem I have with this is the glass cleanliness. All of the beers get a rubber/soapy taste that just kills the beers immediately. The glasses are also sticky at times which is just gross.
Good beer selection is ruined by below average service and unclean glassware.

Really over hyped. Sure the beer was good, and they have a great selection. But the food is at best mediocre compared to what they charge, especially the new chicken wings are just poor quality. The beer is over priced the wait is forever and especially the upper management is really unfriendly. Trying to get a drink at times is like pulling teeth. To be fair, its a little better at Henrietta, but only because the one in Gates is a disaster.
Not only is the food better but there is also a much better atmosphere at Lovin cup, or TC Rieliys or the Distillery, and the beer is just as cold. Go there.
