The Village Tavern has been a welcome addition to the local craft beer scene since it opened in August of last year. It's located in a historic building that dates to 1821 and was the site of the first tavern in the area. 15 of 20 taps are devoted to craft beers and bar manager Chris does a great job of rotating the selection and keeping it interesting. Growlers can be purchased for take home or you can bring your own. Each month a different brewery is designated "Craft Brewery of the Month" and 3-4 of their beers are featured for $3.50/pint. Beer tastings and meals with food/beer pairings are regular events. A full menu is available that goes beyond typical pub fare and is very reasonably priced. A large wrap around deck provides plenty of outdoor seating in good weather.

Under consideration for the summer is live acoustic music on the deck and possibly a beer festival with a pig roast. Overall, they have the best draft beer selection in the county and should be a destination for all craft beer fans living in or visiting the Geneseo region.

The Village Tavern is a welcome addition to Geneseo. They have the best beer selection in the area, and this is a surprise for a rural town. The back room has real charm, with a big brick fireplace. They have several decks and a tent, for eating outside. The "front" deck would be better if they had some trees to buffer traffic. The carpet could use a cleaning.

The food has always been good, but admittedly I generally have one of the burgers. The wait staff seems to be stable, and has always been very friendly.

The couple minor drawbacks are far outweighed by the positives. I hope they continue to thrive, and make improvements along the way. They certainly care about their customers and providing a good experience.

Went here a lot when I went to college in Geneseo. Love this place.

The food is solid, if you like typical bar food (wings, fries, burgers, etc). My girlfriend got a little sick of it because that's all they have. I'm a grease junkie when it comes to food, so I didn't mind, but people who don't love typical bar food might have a tough time with the food.

The beer selection is always pretty solid- not *incredible OMG walezbro*, but always dependable. Good local selections are always on tap (CB's, Naked Dove, Middle Ages, Ithaca, Rohrbach's, etc) with a good selection of around the country US craft brews. Not much of an international selection to speak of, other than Labatt's (hue hue hue) or Guinness. Now that I think of it, the selection, other than those two, is always US based. Decent prices on beer, and OK prices on food. They'll on rare occasion put a cask out on the bar, but I've only seen that once or twice. Every month a brewery is designated "Brewery of the Month" and is poured for 3.50 or so a pint. Good deal! They have a lot of TVs, so if football and beer is a good combo for you, then you'll want to stop by.

The staff is very nice, and mostly beer knowledgeable. I got to talking to one of the owners about my trip to Vermont, and he offered me a bottle of KBS (I struck out that year in trying to buy it) for some Heady. Awesome!

This place is disgusting. The carpet was black and its original color was tan. Just go for the beer which is OK but really not worth it unless you are desperate. Food is absolutely terrible. The bun for the burger almost made me throw up. We had tater tots with chili -only had a few and then were done. Servers are clueless and were searching for things to do. Better options in Batavia or Rochester suburbs.
