Pretty consistent with the other MacGregor's locations. This one's perhaps a bit quieter and a little more family orientated. That doesn't take away from the quality and selection that MacG's is known for. Comfortable bar area, separate dining room. As always a multitude of draughts, about 80 handles, great specials and pub grub. Many local, regional and national micros and some hard to find imports. Friendly, attentive service. A must for locals or anyone traveling through Canandaigua (about 40 min SE of Rochester) in need of good beer and some nosh.

Canandagua a nice little city that sits on the North end of Canandagua Lake in New York's Finger Lakes region. When you visit Canandagua, make sure you stop at MacGregor's for a bite to eat and a beer or two or three. With 73 beers on tap they have more than any other bar in the city. It sits just accross the street from the pier, so atfer you have a couple, you can take a walk and enjoy Canandagua Lake. The food is your usual pub fare, cheedar fries, chicken fingers, burgers, and the like. I had a couple great brews from Rogue, North Coast and Victory. This is a great place I think every traveler should hit while on a tour of the Finger Lakes.

The place is beautiful, an old house that was remade into this beer heaven. Overlooking Canandaigua Lake. My favorite bar.

The atmosphere is higher-class than the dirty dive of Jose and Willy's right next door, but still good and informal. Warm. I just don't like the small bathrooms and the incredible amount of douchebags that frequent the place.

The selection? Something like 70 beers on tap! A bunch more in bottles. Arrogant Bastard, Hennepin, Stella Artois, Spaten Oktoberfest, Brooklyn Chocolate Stout... It's staggering.

Pricing is a good dollar-a-beer more than most bars. The most expensive is the Lindmans Framboise Lambic, at $5 for 7 ounces or $9 for 11 ounces. The lambic isn't sold in pitchers.

THAT SAID, the pitcher price never exceeds $14, and many are $11, and when they're trying to empty the keg you can get a big pitcher for as little as $7. Essentially, what I am trying to say is go with a buddy, buy a pitcher, and pay $3.50 for 44-ounces of beer each.
