Steven and Linda Rohrback hadn’t set out to open a restaurant.
But when they decided that’s what was going to happen, they went all out in getting the Eastside Grill and Pub in Crystal Beach renovated and serving the food and drinks that keep people coming back.
Linda Rohrback has for years run restaurants and banquets at The Inn on the Lake in Canandaigua, which has been demolished and is closed until sometime in 2020 for a transformation into a boutique-style lodging operation. Steven Rohrback originally was going to help out a friend looking for a bar and restaurant.
“When we really started thinking about it, we thought it would be a good idea,” he said. “Where we started out thinking and where we are now are really different.”
They are joined by their son, Sean, who is in charge of the bar, and Joe Herrera, who is the executive chef.
