This is an interesting bar in downtown Rochester near the river. I visited on a Monday evening and was surprised to see the place pretty crowded. Mostly, it was young couples and a few families with children. There were about 30 beers on tap and most were from local and regional micros. Nothing outstanding, but nothing crappy either. The food was above average. I had a pork barbecue plate that was OK, but the cornbread was too hard and dry for my taste. Maybe I'm too used to the southern version. I've heard that the Syracuse location of Dinosaur is better, but if you happen to be in Rochester and are looking for a good beer selection and some decent food this place is worth a visit.

A classic downtown.

The food is the main draw, for good reason. Every type of BBQ is represented, and you can slather their tasty house-made sauce all over it. The corn-bread is to die for.

They have a good taplist, mostly local stuff. Good stuff from Southern Tier, Ithaca, Rohrbach's, CB's, etc. Nothing crazy, but dependable, and turnover is relatively high.

Love the feel of the place inside- high ceilings, cool artwork and decorations. The food is expensive, as big BBQ places tend to be, but no more expensive than Sticky Lips. The food at Sticky Lips is slightly better though.
