Ryan MacNamara spent his childhood summers on the south New Jersey shore, where he grew to love the philadelphia cheesesteaks he and his family picked up from local delis. The restaurateur adored the sandwiches so much that he opened a shrine to the cheesy treat: Mac’s Philly Steaks. One of his biggest obstacles was finding an authentic roll on which to serve his cheesesteaks; in the end, he decided to import Amoroso’s rolls directly from Philadelphia. To dovetail with the City of Brotherly Love–inspired food, the decor at the Geneva location features red-and-white-checkered flooring, mural depicting urban splendor, and Rocky beating the bread to the right level of softness.
The eatery's menu catalogs classic chicken and steak phillys as well as a few versions with a twist, such as the bacon-blue and chicken finger parmesan. Metromix praised the sandwiches for their soft bread and ideal ratio of toppings, a “generous but manageable” portion.

Voted the Best Public Golf Course in Ontario County by the Daily Messenger, the course at Bristol Harbour finds itself among esteemed company as an entry in the oeuvre of well-known course designer Robert Trent Jones. The front nine's position on Canandaigua Lake lends it picturesque views, but with waterfront real estate comes treachery in the form of fierce winds and the possibility of distractions from a passing ghost ship. The course tenor changes considerably as players cross over to the back nine, where they must contend with the frequent changes in elevation brought by the Bristol hills and avoid the dense forest that lines the fairways.
