This restaurant is located inside the Holiday Inn, and we went there last night before the Chicago/EWF concert at Blue Cross Arena. We are not from Rochester, and aren't familiar with the area, so after scoping out where the arena was located, we drove around looking for a place to have something to eat before the concert. This place is like a hidden gem; it wasn't crowded, but that could be because you really don't see it from the street (we pulled in the parking lot of the Holiday Inn to turn around, and that's when we saw the Bar & Grille sign in the window. We are so glad we did, because it was a great experience. First of all, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, both inside the restaurant and out (including the wonderful guy at the parking booth who couldn't have been nicer to us!). The burgers were amazing (try the basic burger with bacon and blue cheese crumbles - fabulous!), and the drink specials were unbelievable ($2.00 drafts & $4.00 glasses of wine). Seriously, if you are looking for a great burger (that's all we ate so I can't speak for other food there), a comfortable atmosphere, and super friendly staff, this is the place to go!

We had lunch here. Mostly average, although my husband ate the hamburger and said it was amazing. Others had pasta, wings, sliders. All average.

This is the bar in the Holiday Inn Downtown, recently the Plaza Downtown, an old musty and poorly maintained property. The bar is average in every respect: appearance, selection, service. Macallan's Scotch 12 year is $15 for a short pour.

It was convenient to eat here, since it is in the hotel lobby and there are limited other choices nearby. But the service was slow, and the food just wasn't very good. The hotel was just reopened after a renovation, so maybe they were rusty.
