Gave this place a try for beer and dinner, it did not disappoint.

I was pleased to notice the Oatmeal Stout offering and decided to partake. It was very good, a bit smokey (which I enjoy) and quite drinkable.

For grub I ordered a hot-topper, which is basically their hot pastrami sandwich. It was a decent portion (not Carnegie Deli size) and I had the chips for a side.

It was Monday, and not too busy. The bar was about 3 of 10 seats deep. there was a bit of a snow outside and the roads were far from great. The bartender was very professional, she was very attentive but not overbearing.

I would have rather listened to SportsCenter (which was on the plasma) instead of the retro top 40 they were playing, but I guess you can't have everything.

I'd rank it as a decent non-commercialized joint, and I will stop back if I am ever back in town.

Best German restaurant in Rochester, which unfortunately goes under the radar when one searches Google for German food because Rohrbach is first-and-foremost a brewery. I've eaten here twice as an omnivore and once as a vegetarian. Obviously this isn't the place for vegetarians, but the service was accommodating and I had some pretty good vegetables and potato salad.
The vibe is tricky. The inside resembles an old-timey tavern but functions as a sit-down restaurant, and it's on a small highway that feels rural but is also very close to the city.

Stopped in here to give the food a try for the most part. The beers were something I was looking forward to also. The vibe is pretty cool, nice bar and dining area. The selection was decent, The food was awesome. and the service wasn't bad either. Worth checking out.

I stopped in here last week while on vacation with the family. Pub to the right as you walk in with maybe a dozen tables and some seats at the bar, the restaurant to the left where we sat had an equal number of tables. I think they had 15 beers on tap that night, most were average at best. The food was decent for pub grub. Our waitress was fairly attentive. Seemed a bit pricey in my mind for the quality, food and beer wise. There are better places in the area I'd surely hit before going back here. YMMV.

This is just down the road from me. Their beers are always delicious, their scotch ale is one of the best around. Food is also tasty! Can sit inside or outdoors under a canopy tent. Staff has always been friendly every time I go there. One time I was there, we believe we got food poisoning from their beer cheese (the best pretzel dip ever!) as everyone I was with ended up getting sick, so I dubbed down my quality rating a bit. We were just unlucky though, I haven't had anything like that happen since. I recommend this place for sure.
