Great place for lunch or dinner. Nice view of falls. Soups are exceptional, sandwiches hot or cold are crazy good. The Reuben is all there. They also have beer tastings and a great Genesee Brewery Store

I've been to the Brewhousw several times-my son used to live across the street and have been disappointed. Sitting out there and watching the beuatiful Genessee river and the falls-this is the real Rochester! They also have a nice tasting bar that is a bargain
