We took advantage of The Pub’s new Tuesday’s and Wednedag’s Special all you can eat fried chicken w/2 sides for $10. Except for fact that the chicken tasted precooked causing the breast to be dry and chest, the dark meat thigh and leg were almost perfect. Try it out!

This was my fourth trip to Wegmans pub. It was my second trip to have the whole lobster with two sides. It is a bargain and so delicious. The appetizers were half price as we were there for happy hour ahead of dinner. The beer selection was also exceptional.
We sat in a small booth in a cupola with another couple this time. It made it so easy to converse. No background noise with which to contend.
Overall it was a good experience.

The oysters were over-breaded and over-cooked. Lobster tail was over cooked. Have eaten here before, and food was great, but not this time. Kind of surprising for an oyster week theme.

Last time it was wonderful. This time not that great. Started with one sever then another and last a third. We must have been at a shift change. The burger was still good but not as good as the first time we ate there. The burger was also much smaller this time. And the salad was given too much dressing. The server offered to get me a new one but I didn’t bother. There was a pool of dressing in the bottom. I’ll remember to have it on the side next time. Also the first time the salad had some olives on it but not this time.

The Pub is a nice place to go eat when you just want a break from cooking at home. The servers are very nice and accommodating. The menu offers plenty of choices and every item we have ordered, past and present, was well prepared and tasty. We usually make reservations, but aside from weekends, tables are usually available with little waiting.

We went for the special Clam Bake - it was awesome! Everything was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We did add the lobster tail but it's plenty of food without it. I would highly recommend!

The clam bake was a disappointment. Very little broth, mussels were small, not plump. A half piece of corn was cut into thirds. Also, Wegmans is a grocery store and we asked for butter for the bread and they didn’t have any! A little strange for a pub located inside a grocery store. The draft beer arrived and was hot. A mature, responsible bartender should always check the equipment before the start of a shift. I love Wegmans cold & hot bars!!

Everyone from the Hostess, Tammy, to our waitress, Brittany were so gracious, attentive, friendly and accommodating. I could tell they were unusual people as well as well trained. Having managed large motel/restaurant complexes, I would have been thrilled to have such attentive and talented people.

The crab cakes were absolutely delicious. I have spent more and couldn't eat them!!

Great experience, delicious food and have been raving to everyone since!

We didn't realize this was a restaurant inside a Wegman's grocery store (we're not from this region of the country) so the location was a little peculiar to us - although that is more on us than anything else. The food was really good - kids meals, fish, chicken, and beef were had by those at the table and across the board the consensus was the food was well done. The biggest complaint had to be the service. It really was not very busy when we were there for an early dinner and I had to go to the bar myself twice for an extra set of silverware and an extra plate because our waitress forgot and/or didn't check on us. I will note that the manager must have realized something was off about our service because I never filed a complaint but she came over and gave us a dessert on the house and took the kids meals off the tab. I'd certainly try it again if I were in the area because the food was good and I have a feeling that the poor service was not typical.

One of the things that should be on the above list is that the food is dependably good. Very good. We went to celebrate my birthday - I had a lobster & my husband had the fish tacos which I like too. Ambiance is not the strong point - after all, it IS a grocery store - but there were no kids that evening & after eating, HEY! - we did our grocery shopping! So, that's one of Wegmans's attractions.

The Pub is a great place to eat when you just don't feel like cooking and just want to relax and order a nice, reasonably priced meal. We made reservations as the restaurant gets filled up quickly around 7 pm, which is when we like to eat. Service and food were good as usual, which is something we have grown accustomed to. Th Pub is just a nice place to go and if you need to do some grocery shopping, then you won't have to walk very far.

Truffle fries were disappointing- bland, service was good but room for improvement, overall atmosphere and food was good. The Table #20 was the best for a celebration luncheon. It has a private feel to the enclosures.

The Pub is associated with the outstanding Wegman's store and offers a decent, reasonably priced menu with nice special offers. We usually catch dinner there than do some grocery shopping afterwards which is nice. Reservations are not required but should be considered during busy hours.

The prices were wonderful, the service was kind and quick, and the array of beers on tap were great! I spent under $10.00 for a huge burger with fried and a beer on tap! I was also given a table for one without a second thought, while other restaurants show hesitation and attempt to seat me at the bar. Thank you V, Judith, and the entire Wegmans crew; I will be back soon!

The lobster Thursday is a STEAL. Lots of food, the green beans were perfectly cooked, the salt potatoes were a little dry and the server gave me some truffle oil. Service was perfect. Don’t let the fact they are in a grocery store keep you from going. And the cookie sundae was KILLER!
