MacGregor's is a local chain of bar and grills. They have 70+ beers on tap including seasonal, local, and some exotic selections, with cheap and diverse pitcher specials. At some (perhaps all) locations, they refill growlers. Regular visitors can join the Beer Club and earn points for merchandise. MacGregor's has smoking patios and take out food available.
All MacGregor's locations have free WiFi.
The first location was on Gregory Street in the the city's South Wedge neighborhood. It had a pool table, two electronic dart boards, and a jukebox. Unfortunately, complaints about noise, street parking, and drunken patrons incurred fines and caused the owner to close this location rather than jeopardize his liquor license for the other locations. A new bar, Tap and Mallet, opened in this location November 2007.
In February 2009 the owner closed the Perinton location at 7408 Pittsford-Palmyra Road following a visit from the New York State Labor Department1.
The Gates location was shut down in June 2013 but reopened in November.
Their remaining city location, in the Hiram Sibley Building, closed in 2015 and was replaced by Filgers East End.
In mid-2018 another location opened in Brighton in the former Zebb's building. It closed "temporarily," along with those in Penfield (1129 Empire Boulevard, opened 2007) and Greece (300 Center Place Drive, opened 2015), during the COVID-19 pandemic. As of April 2022 none has reopened, and to all appearances (including the website) the closures are permanent.
