I have been taking my venison here for a few years. They do a great job, haven't gotten anything back that wasn't delish. I like that they process wild game all year round and each order is complete separately, they dont mix your meat with...More

After living in Germany for 8 years, I long for authentic home made German food. This is by far the best German food I have found in the US, and I've traveled all over. To start, the way they prepare their meats is such high...More

Go there several times a year and never disappointed. Schnitzels and wurst are the best menu items. Don't forget great German beer on tap. Only downside is only a few tables. Go on wednesday or after 1pm to avoid crowds.

Swan's is a great time, whether going to eat for lunch, or buying from their counter. Everything is authentic, and tastes great. Dining is at larger, community tables, and always fun to sit with strangers and share the terrific selections. Go early or plan to...More

The Swan Market is a hidden gem in Rochester. It can get crowded and a long wait for a seat - particularly on Fridays, but it is well worth it. All the food is very good and prepared fresh (the Swan is also a butcher...More

Actually, most of the sausage are made of pork not beef. Only a couple are beef.

All of our tables are communal, so you can sit just the two of you and keep to yourselves or chat with the people seated near you and meet some great new friends! It works well for both! Hope you come in soon!!

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.
