Frequently Asked Questions


Where do I park my car?

If you're reading this we are most certain that you are aware of the contentious relationship Rochestarians have with their cars and the need to park them somewhere. That being said here is some parking information for you. However if you desire to use another mode of transportation we would greatly appreciate it!

We love being located between the Southwedge and Swillburg neighborhoods! Unfortunately the 2nd German Presbyterian Chuch didn't think to build us a parking lot in 1890. Fortunately for us, and you, we live in a great city that offers street parking along South Clinton and Meigs. Specifically you can park on both sides of the Meigs Street bridge. (that's the big one that crosses I-490)

Our neighbors have been very supportive of our business so please be courteous and do not block their driveways. Also do not park in the lot behind Firehouse Saloon or Geck Plumbing! Your car will be towed for any and all of these parking faux pas!

Do you take reservations?

We do not take reservations. The layout of the space ensures that guests are moving around on the arcade floor or at the bar. We have a walk up food counter, and guests and seating in available on a first come, first serve basis. 

For groups of 15 or more, we offer food/token packages. Groups that would like a private space with reserved tables and chairs should consider a mezzanine rental. For large scale functions, we offer full space buyouts.

For more details or to make a mezzanine reservation, fill out the event request form below, and our event coordinator will be in touch. 

Do you accept credit cards?

Yes we accept all major cards and also have an ATM.

Is this vegan?

All food can be served vegan, EXCEPT bacon & cheese. Please be sure to share your dietary restrictions with our staff at the burger counter. We are happy to accommodate.  

Are you family friendly?

We are family friendly until 9pm!  After 9pm 21+ only please.

Can I bring a cake or dessert?

Please feel free to bring any dessert you'd like, just dispose of your trash. Note, we do NOT offer cake cutting, or loaning of cake knives. Please be sure to slice your desserts in advance.

Do you have live music or DJ's?

Unfortunately we do not have an entertainment license so we are not legally allowed to have any form of live entertainment including DJ's.
