About an hour out of Detroit, RM is a great place to check out. I went in the afternoon and even during the lunch hour it was busy. The building is very rustic with a renovated inside. There is plenty of seating but itís wide open with little dining privacy. Families were there when I went so the food is an attraction in itself. Service was average but a tad on the slow side. There is a central games area with billiards; a corner for a live band and dancing; a secondary bar/room for cigar smokers. The place has an interesting feel to it. There are 8-10 house brews with a good variety of flavour and colour. I only sampled the porter but it was very tasty. [August, 2009] I never tire of RM - easily my most favourite brewpub. Iíve tried them all and find the beer and food to be outstanding. Try the Brewhouse Turkey Reuben! My only wish that it was closer to where I live, otherwise Iíd be a regular there.

Iíve been a mug club member for a number of years. The food is decent, but itís really about the beer. Over the years, theyíve had at least 5 different brewmasters, but the quality and cleanness of the beer has been very consistent.

I noticed right away that my score it higher than the ratings below mine, what boosted my score is the brewpub itself. It really is a great building, and beautiful inside, the food is good too. I live not far from Rochester, and I had been avoiding trying it out for some unknown reason, I finally went last week and I was pleasantly surprised. Drank a Pleasurez Pale Ale and Organic Wit. Also sampled the Wheat, Red, and Milkshake Stout. They were not earth-shattering, but I canít see why I wouldnít come back. I brought home a growler of the Pale Ale, and Iíll go fill it up again on a Tues/or Thurs because they run discounts. If you are in the area, sound probably stop in and check it out.

This is a very nice place to go to on a date or with friends and family. What really makes it stand out is its friendly staff and excellent food, which stands above almost any other brewpub I have been to. I have tried almost every single item on their menu, and there hasnít been a dish I did not like. Their beer is also solid, though not spectacular, with perhaps an exception of their Milkshake Stout, which is delicious. They have a decent variety, and they recently have been experimenting with some new styles, such as a pilsener, a dubbel, and a saison (coming at the end of March). Also, if you join their birthday club (free of charge), you get a free meal during your birthday month and a pint glass to take home. Not only a great brewpub, but this is among my favorite restaurants to go out to eat.

This is a nice place to go, not only for a decent beer selection, but also a nice dinner. Sometimes it smells a little too much like a brewery, which I know sounds strange, but Dragonmead and Sherwood do not have this problem. Itís almost as if the spilled beer doesnít get wiped up.

I think this place is one of the best spots in Downtown Rochester. The food is excellent and the variety on the menu is unreal. From Jambalaya to Goulash to a ton of burgers and standard brewery food. Inside, its a cool looking spot. A little packed and noisy, and TVs are kinda hard to see from most angles. Pool tables are out there and usually are easy to access. Beer selection is pretty solid and the local ones are decent. I like the Milkshake Stout and Rochester Red.

A neat old textile mill with ok food and ok beer. Decent stouts and seasonal hefes. They also have some decent bottled beer that is not their own and Guiness on tap. Cool atmosphere with weekend live music and a cigar lounge/bar in back. Itís a cool place...the beer is ok, but nothing amazing.

I donít know why I havenít put my 2 cents worth on RM. I have been going to RM for over 3 years. I always thought the food was good. I went last night with my wife and a few other people .This is the 1st time the Louisiana Jambalaya wasnít good , other food I have had before are Brewmasterís Shepherdís Pie , Hungarian Goulash. All have been good. before but after last nights dinner and the comments I got from the other people it appears thet the quality odf the food has gone down hill a little. The beer hasnít changed still good

An interesting little brewpub based in a historical old mill. I came here on a Sunday afternoon and got to sit outside, which was very pleasant. The service was great. There were ~10 beers on tap and the ones I tried were quite tasty. The food was ok (the descriptions make the food sound better than it is...I got the Shepherdís pie which was actually pretty good but my boyfriend got the sesame chicken which was not good at it is hit or miss). A low key, chill kind of atmosphere and good beer to boot. I had a great time here!
