    its Wegmans and the food is very good and now more reasonably priced . Although we had a very good meal and the service was very good it still is in a grocery store. The food tends to make up for this somewhat. We definitely will go again.

    Ashley was very accommodating! Our party grew as the word spread that we were going to the Pub at Wegman's and it wasn't a problem for Ashley. The food was excellent! We were all first timers and everyone commented that they would like to return at a later date.

    Restaurant is inside the food store with a nice atmosphere considering. It was a bit noisy and the service was a bit slow. Happy hour buffalo wings and arugala salad were tasty. Lobster pot was reasonably priced and was good. It was lacking a bit of flavor, seemed bland. Beer and wine selection were pretty good as well. Will definitely go back.

    Even though I made a reservation for four people ahead of time, when we got there we were given a table that was suitable for 8 to 10 people. It was in that alcove that was very poorly lit and the lighting was very poor. It was difficult to have conversation and it was very difficult to read our menus. Service is not the greatest. Even though the waitress was very nice, it would've been nice if she came and checked in more than a couple times. This also happened the last time I ate there. It took forever to get drink refills, and when I asked for extra ketchup, it took forever to get there. I appreciate that they want to serve the ketchup in little metal bowls, but it would be great to just have a bottle on the table.

    we went for dinner and we ordered the appetizers (won tons and crab cakes) which were fantastic, my wife ordered hamburger and she said it was really good i had ordered the scallops with isreali cous cous and it was just ok, the scallops was over done and the cous cous was a little bland. My son ordered the tomato soup with bacon and that was ok as well as the fried calamari which was almost burnt and way over done. Also my other son had the mac and cheese which was bland and nothing special. The price for all the food plus one bottle of angre orchard was about 79 w/out tip. I do not believe it was to bad but you decide. Will go and try again. Good atmosphere.

    I enjoyed asking the waitress which dish special, on the menu, she liked the most. I selected her choice and was extremely pleased! It's nice to know that the chiefs ,who work at Wegman's,want their waiters and waitresses to know the BLT's "bites, licks, & tastes," of all dishes.

    I love Wegmans, and have tried the Pub 5 times. It should simply be better. This time service was only ok and the fish and chips were ok. The worst part of this visit was the fries ,which normally rock, were cold and a bit soggy. I will keep trying because I love the idea of dinner than shopping on a Friday night. Love the curtains.

    Very surprised and pleased for a Supermarket pub. Had the pulled pork sandwich with fries special, wonton appetizer. Food was excellent and definitely not your typical sandwich. Service was outstanding! Food was presented with a flair you would find in a more elegant restaurant but atmosphere was cozy!

    Wife And I are long-time Wegmans supermarket customers. We went out of our way to dine at The Pub previously for lunch which was excellent. Second visit for dinner was a big disappointment. Salads and stuffed founder entree were good. But my strip steak entree was poor. Worst 12-oz strip steak I've ever had. Meat was tasteless and covered with a heavy gravy. Creme brulee was not up to Wegmans standards. Would not order this dessert again. At this point we would return for lunch, but not for dinner.

    Overall, it was a very pleasant experience-inside a grocery store but good food and great service!We started with a shared order of Calamari - lightly fried (almost too fried) but tasty side sauce.It was sitting on a bed of olives&peppers - eh..Husband ordered the smoked bacon burger and it was HUGE -mostly BREAD (roll was too big) but with taking off the top and using knife and fork,he said it was delicious. I opted for the crab cake appetizer (avoiding the big bread issue from above) which was 3 dollops of crab cake.It was not too much filler and a good deal of crab.I also had the tuscan fries which were regular fries with chunky garlic and herbs(on weeknights they have sweet potato fries which is what I wanted). They were tasty!!

    Our experience at the Pub was a very good one. Our waitress, Jess W. did a wonderful job. She was very nice and helpful. The food was very good. We had the jamaican jerk hot wings for an appetizer and then we ordered our meals. We had the fish tacos, hamburger and my daughter had the mac and cheese. Everything came out great. We enjoyed the Pub and will definitely come back again.

    Went prime time on Friday night with my wife and a friend. Every table and seat at the bar was packed. My friend and I both had burgers, and my wife had the salmon. Everything was over cooked, to the point that my friend could only stomach 1/2 his burger. Wife said the light sauce and veggies were good but the salmon was almost in edible. Luckily the prices are decent, to take the sting away. They did take my friend's burger off the bill. Good beer selection. Ambiance is different; you are eating at a grocery store restaurant partitioned with drapes all around. A cop walked through the place, and there was one visibly intoxicated guy mulling around, topped by a mediocre acoustical set from a musician. Experience was a bit surreal

    Dined on 3/19/2014
    First time visit on our "date night", with 6:30pm reservations, we were quickly seated, waitress was there to introduce us to the beverage and food selection since it was "happy hour" when we arrived. Service was top notch, with any member of their service staff taking and delivering our drinks and food orders. The pub menu was a good choice for my wife who enjoyed the variety, I had the "Maine" lobster roll with their fries, which was tasty but missed something when comparing it to our "down east" servings, can't put my finger on what was lacking but overall it was just enough to enjoy. Happy hour appears to be a hit, the Pub was filled with patrons of all ages, and they appeared to be enjoying the setting, the beverages and the food.

    Good food. Ambience is better now that they're closing curtains so that you're not reminded so much that you are in a grocery store. Good place to hook up with a friend and talk over a meal. It is a bit noisy, but it is a Pub. I've been there before and the service was great. The last time, not so great. But, could have been a fluke. It's open on a Sunday which is a plus.

    Ok..Wasn't 100% sure what to expect and was in many ways pleasantly surprised. Lobster bisque was respectable...rich and creamy without tasting of butterfat. Salmon was slightly overdone and a bit dry, but flavorful. Skirt steak was expertly seasoned and cooked to perfection as requested. Service was very attentive and a notch above what I expected, extremely accommodating. Very noisy, though; bleedthrough of the live music down the hall mixed with the overhead music, and tables very close together; not a place for a romantic dinner, but definitely a place to grab a dinner and drink with friends. Wine was served at room temperature instead of chilled as a sweet red should be.

    I did not care for how close together the tables were. I heard every single detail of the tables next to us that were complaining the entire time so that made the experience unpleasant. The food was good and the waitress was nice but it took about 20 minutes just to get our drink and I saw the drinks made and sitting at the bar for about 15 minutes. It was just an okay night out.
