Bar-Eat-O occupies the bar formerly know as The Vital Spot in Geneseo, NY.  Existing for over 40 years, and operating as The Vital Spot for the past 24 years, we felt the need to put a new face on an old friend! In the Summer time we have a great urban patio. We’ve transitioned from a local college bar to an inviting restaurant and bar available for the whole community to enjoy. 

Bar-Eat-O offers over 24 fresh, non-processed ingredients, including authentic braised meats, organic tofu sofritas, and from scratch salsas and sauces. With special grilled meat recipes, fresh vegetables and condiments, there are 1000’s of possible flavor combinations. Our food options cover the likes of vegetarian/vegan lifestyles, special need diets, kids, and of course the meat lover. The average wait in line time is an estimated 3-5 minutes, we pride ourselves as a healthy alternative to fast food.  Dine-in or take-out!

At the BAR you can enjoy our full service menu. Enjoy a beverage from our great collection of craft beer on draft, scratch made specialty cocktails, or try one of our liquor/wine selections. There are more food, drink and entertainment options to come, so stay connected!  We are excited to have you as our guests!
