Batavia Party Bus

Batavia, New York is home to some of the very best restaurants and bars in the entire state as far as we are concerned! These are our favorite places to drink and dine in the 14020 and 14021 zip codes.

Pok-A-Dot is one of those incredible little "greasy spoon" types of places that you think aren't around anymore... but this one is. It's a very small restaurant, so don't expect a spacious and comfortable dining experience, but appreciate it for what it is! A throwback to the good old days. We love their hot dogs so much that's all we ever get when we go here. It's a true Batavia tradition, made famous by John Gardner's mention in The Sunlight Dialogs. But don't take his word for it, and don't even take our word for it. Just head over to Pok-a-Dot yourself and find out what you have been missing for all these years!

Sport of Kings Family Restaurant is an after-the-bar haven because it's open 24 hours, but any time of day it's a wonderful place to go and get some really delicious food. We absolutely love the souvlaki here, and everyone goes crazy over their famous biscuits and gravy. As you can tell from that previous sentence, the menu is a mix of traditional Greek delicacies and home cooked American favorites. The portions are enormous, and the food is always hot, fresh, and so tasty. The vibe of Sport of Kings is a bit more like a truckstop than a restaurant and that's something that we enjoy about it. Definitely give this place a try when you're in the area.

Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar is an oft-overlooked dining option in Batavia simply because it's one of those chain restaurants that everybody has been to a million times, but we love this particular location. They've always got the friendliest servers and the staff behind the scenes puts in a lot of extra work to make your dining experience a pleasant one. The food is top notch here, really prepared with care and served hot. Very clean and nicely decorated environment too. Just an all around great dining experience that won't cost you an arm and a leg!

Center Street Smoke House has a modern yet retro vibe that we can't get enough of. The classic feeling of the old brick exterior and neon signs reminiscent of the 80s... but then you've got the delicious menu that reflects the tastes of today. We absolutely love the chicken nachos and the homemade kettle chips, and we'd also very highly recommend the pulled chicken sandwiches and baked sweet potatoes. Yum! Cooked just perfectly and served with delicious extras (like the cinnamon honey butter that comes with the sweet potatoes) that really make all the difference. Great service and a wonderful atmosphere too. Very highly recommended.

Pontillo's Pizza & Pasta is such a familiar spot to anyone who dines regularly in Batavia. They're known for having some of the best pizza and pasta around, and we will vouch for that fact. We love their deliciously doughy crusts and the heavy sprinkling of cheeses and toppings. Best of all, the service is very fast and friendly, and the restaurant is kid friendly and casual. Wonderful place to dine with the family, to pick up some take-out to enjoy at home, or even to call up for some quick delivery. They're open until 11:00PM most nights and until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays!

Main Street Pizza Company is another pizza restaurant in the Batavia area that we just can't get enough of. All of our friends are addicted to the pizza and say it's their favorite in town, but what we are hooked on is those delicious barbecue grilled wings! Soooo good. If you order the pizza, we recommend trying the deep dish. The thin crust is good too, but that rich delicious deep dish has had us singing its praises for years now. Huge portions, great service, and the kind of ambiance that is all too hard to find nowadays. Definitely one of our favorite places to dine and relax with friends in Batavia.

Alex's Place is wonderful for family dinners and even for intimate dates. We tend to go for the steaks and soups here because they are so good, but you can't go wrong with anything that they offer. The beef barley soup is one of our favorites, and we love their Angus steaks paired with a hearty baked potato. The seafood is also delicious here, and don't miss that French onion soup either! Upscale atmosphere with fireplaces and dressy waitstaff... This is a very nice place to bring the family or to gather with good friends for some wonderful food and drinks. Great dessert too! Always a pleasure dining here.

Miss Batavia Family Restaurant is a real tradition of an old fashioned diner in our city. The meatloaf and mashed potatoes is a true classic, and we can't imagine not stopping in at least once during every trip to Batavia to enjoy that perfect combination. We remember dining here in the 80s and playing the jukeboxes that were installed at every table! Unfortunately those aren't a part of the decor anymore, but everything else is just as good as it was then. Very friendly staff and a decor scheme that's a true delight. It's so much fun to dine here with friends and family!

Can you forgive us for listing one more pizzeria here? We can't help ourselves. Pauly's Pizzeria has some of the very best pizza pies around, and we also adore their spicy hot Buffalo wings, their cheesy gooey mozzarella sticks, and all the delicious sauces that they have to dip them in. Very friendly staff, super fast service, and some of the best pizzeria-style food that we can find in Batavia. What more can we say about this excellent spot? Don't miss it.

Tully's is famous for its comfortable atmosphere and delicious dining experience, and their sports bar ambiance and drinks are worth a mention too! Everybody just loves this place. In terms of the food, our favorite things are the chicken tender salad and the chicken tenders, and you've just got to order the honey mustard every time. It's so good! Everyone we know goes crazy over it. If you're there to drink, they've got an impressive selection of beer both on draft and in bottles, and the bartending staff is always very attentive, making sure that your glass stays filled. One of the coolest spots in Batavia, hands down.
