Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Upon reading this book at length, I would NOT recommend this book. Based on what was written for Rochester and most of the Finger Lakes, I can only assume that businesses paid to be in it because as a local I would recommend 1/10 of the places listed. The book is also very unappealing... newspapery-feeling paper, no exciting pictures (or color for that matter), and it's kind of hard to follow.
If it helps you, great! But if you're looking for a locals opinion, I wouldn't suggest this, unless it were free?
(2-star because it does include accurate information)
