“Hearty, traditional Central European food, to wash down with a beer...”
Review of Swan Market

Swan Market
Ranked #3 of 1,289 Restaurants in Rochester
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$5 - US$10
Description: All meat at Swan Market is hand-cut, all sausage hand-made by owner Barry Fischer, who apprenticed with German master butchers to bring you a taste of Germany that's authentic down to the last detail. Swan's renowned German lunches are served Wednesday through Saturday from 11 to 2. Grab a seat at one of the communal tables and hoist a glass of imported German beer. It's impossible to go away hungry! There's also live German music on the last Thursday and Friday of each month. Wan can also cater events of any size, with anything from cold-cut trays to a full pig roast.

“Hearty, traditional Central European food, to wash down with a beer...”
Reviewed 28 September 2010

This restaurant is in a pretty tough neighborhood and is not that easy to find, but it is well worth the trip. Walking in, the tables set up family style and you feel like you are in a deli. But the atmosphere is cozy and family like. The waitresses are always friendly. The food is awesome. Hearty, traditional Central European food, to wash down with a beer (if you don't have to go back to work). If it's your first time there get the sample platter, it's $7 and you get a plateful of different foods- red cabbage, sausage, sauerkraut, etc. It's not unusual to hear older people speaking in German, Czech, and others which adds to the authenticity. If you like the food you can walk up the deli counter and get some sausage to go.
