I have always wondered about this place - it looks like a classic tavern I would find back in Wisconsin. I never was curious enough to actually check it out until a friend said it was a decent dive bar that serves a good fish fry. Three of us headed there last Friday for an early dinner and the place...

Wednesdays are great, we go for wings which are the best!! They have a special you can't go wrong with. One dozen for $6.00, but it's an eat in only special. Why go home to eat, they have a Delicious New England Clam Chowder that I always order when it's available. There are plenty of other items on their menu... More

Have been here many times, usually for karaoke. Drinks are usually OK but somewhat watered down, and not a huge craft selection for beer lovers. Cant really comment on the food, as we haven't been there to eat in a long time. If you're looking for a dive bar, it isnt a bad place. very interesting clientele.

This is our go to place for a fish fry on Friday. We usually meet as a group of 6 there and have a good time. Good selection of beer. The fish fry is usually a very good size and usually very tasty. Think we only had one marginal fish fry here. The service is the only down side sometimes.... More

A variety of salads, apps and burgers on the menu. Several beers on tap with regular changes in variety. Nice neighborhood feel to the place, available seating outside on Empire when the weather is nice. I had a grilled chicken salad, my wife had a veggie wrap with chicken added, both decent and fresh, we will go back. Several folks... More

I had the New York steak, cooked exactly how I wanted it and tasted great. Place is small so I expected better service but it was okay. Waiter just didn't seem like he wanted to be serving anyone but did a okay job. For some reason he kept ignoring or messing up one of the persons in our party's order... More

We have been going here for Friday fish fry for years. Met some friends there this past Friday. They had arrived earlier and had ordered cocktails. One couple ordered Martinis. They were served in identical glasses. One glass clearly contained a good deal more liguor than the other. My friend pointed this out to the barmaid and she immediately copped... More

I moved away from Rochester 16 years ago and always make the Boulevard a meal-stop on a trip home. It's not the Ritz but it's a place where "every body knows your name." Neighborhood friendly and the best fish fry in town. What's not to love? You can't beat the value. Come to relax; come early if you have someplace... More
