Brewery
At Lafayette Brewing Company, we are dedicated to great beer, great food and lots of fun! With our recently re-vamped pub menu, we know everyone will find something to love. A must see is our newly installed “bar-cade” complete with pinball machines, billiards, darts, foosball and shuffleboard. We brew our beers on site in a 15 barrel brewhouse located directly below the main bar in the basement. Starting from the grain silo in our back parking lot, our brewers are creating beer right here from water, barley, hops and yeast, sometimes spices and always passion. Stop in soon for a pint of the freshest beer you’ll find… Cheers!

Birthday brunch. Our waitress was super sweet. The mimosas were perfect and she gave me a delicious slice of their chocolate cake.

The food and service was good, but not great. One member of our party had the apple and brie grilled cheese, which was good but did not have a lot of the cheese. The sandwich was mostly apples. The side of chips and the side of fries with my dinner were excellent. My steak sandwich was good, but could of had more flavor in seasoning. The meat and cheese plate was good. Our waitress was good and paid attention to our needs as we were sitting outside on the patio. They need to invest in some better signage. It was hard to find the bathrooms. We finally asked and the hostess said oh yeah go down the hallway take a left then take the stairs to the right up a floor. It would of been better if there was a sign that pointed this out

Service was a bit slow, took over an hour from the time we got there until we left. Other than that, food was tasty and our waitress was very accommodating.

Service was very slow and mistakes were made and that was at 3 p.m. when hardly anyone was there. The pizza was saturated with oil. The beers were flat. The meal sizes were pretty good and the old building is nice.

Hi Dawn, I just wanted to reach out and apologize for your experience here- it is certainly not our usual standard of food or service at all! I know there are a lot of choices out there, so I appreciate that you chose us and I am so sorry for letting you down. If you are ever back in the area, stop in and ask for me, I would love to apologize in person! Sincerely, Erica

We went to Lafayette Brewing for Mother's Day Brunch - great choice! The buffet was excellent with a good variety of delicious choices, and because the brunch was set up as two seatings, we weren't rushed and could take our time and enjoy our family time together.

Our family of 4 attended the Mother's Day brunch. There was a nice selection with either breakfast or lunch items to choose from so everyone in our party was happy.

Once it got busy,our server was hard to find. The food was sub-par. And the wonton/brie/apricot bites were cold! Never in my life have I been served cold brie. They warmed it for my girlfriend and I but it just wasn't great. Brie almost tasted goat cheese like. Disappointed:(

Food was very good for the most part - starter salad seemed a bit limp, and it took quite a while to get the food with very few tables in the restaurant. Not great for a quick work lunch. I do however appreciate that fresh meals need more time to prepare. Overall very good food, and server was excellent also

Had no idea it was DJ Trivia night! I made reservations for my boyfriend and I and upon walking in, the noise level was way too high for what I had hoped would be a quiet Sunday evening dinner. The bar/restaurant area was jam packed. Luckily for us, whomever designed the layout had that in mind. The other area off the restaurant had a few couples in it and we could no longer hear the party bar atmosphere. It was fantastic. The wait staff, ours in particular, were very attentive yet unobtrusive. The service was great, the food was terrific. I can’t say enough good things about this place!

The restaurant was dead however their was a private party which made it very noisy. The food was terrible and the waitress was not attentive to detail. She brought us a diobeer than we ordered and it was terrible, we didn’t finish our drinks or our food. It was a disappointing experience.

For a friday night, with an event at the arena I would expect that the restaurant have adequate staff. The hostess was rude, did not even make eye contact and said. "Your party is in the dining room, go on back, you'll see them" She did not walk us to the table. Our waiter apologized, but explained they were short staffed, drink orders took forever. There was no bartender at the back bar. We were also told that there was no sou chef, and one person was cooking for the whole restaurant. I ordered the apple grilled cheese. I was disappointed to find I did not have slices of fresh apples, but something that reminded me of canned apple pie filling, cheese was nearly nonexistent. i brought friends from Rochester out to dinner before the show at the arena. I am sad to say we did not enjoy our dinner beforehand.

Decided to give it a try since it was close to our hotel. Food was nothing special - mediocre at best. For a Buffalo restaurant, the Buffalo turkey sliders were quite tasteless and uninspiring. The servers were friendly, but very slow. Seemed understaffed for a busy Friday night. Difficult to enjoy a meal when there were 3 (obviously drunk, at 6:00pm) patrons of the bar yelling at the top of their lungs. Will pass the next time we’re in town...

Definitely a great stop for pub food! The beer was great. I recommend their Belgian Wit brewed right on the premises. Our food was super tasty. Service was great.

Food was good but not for the price. Beer was good. Server was friendly enough but was obvious we were pushed out the door. Is there a time limit in a place like this? The group of friends only meets every few months and enjoys the company and conversation. Because we felt rushed and the food selection/price, it is unlikely we will be returning.

Ugh. I chose this restaurant because of its proximity to Key Bank Center, as we were heading to the hockey game afterward. The service was awful. There are multiple entrances to the restaurant (it's in a hotel), and we waited at several of them before having to traipse through the bar to be sat. Even though we had a reservation, the hostess seemed confused -- then we ended up sitting in the bar anyway. The service was slow (I was done with my soup before my daughter's salad came out), and the food was NOT great. Of the five items we ordered, my sandwich was inedible, my daughter's burger was incorrect, and my soup would have been better if I'd made it myself. The only decent item was the flatbread. The restaurant does a nice job honoring the city's history with it's decor. But that's really all that recommends it. I won't be back.

Requested high top table reason why I made the reservations. Only to get there inside out we had to sit on the other side. Extremely upset about this it was for a birthday and we wanted to enjoy the bar area also. So we didn't spend how much time 8 and left. Wanted to enjoy the bar atmosphere due to the birthday party was younger. Probably wouldn't come again
