This is the place to get some pork drums, wings or a fish fry and have a beer with your friends. The best pub in Fairport. Always feel like I am walking into a friends place. Great beer selection and specials, knowledgable bar staff and great service.

I have gotten their build a burger many a times, but after the endless turkey concoctions over the past few days, I wanted one tonight. It was pretty busy at 6:30. My dad got the bean and ham soup- it was so good and homemade taste and look. The burger arrived and it was the perfect size and grilled. I... More

The Donnelly Wrap is the absolute best ....and not to mention the seasoned curly fries would be a sin. Whether for a quick meal for two or more, staff is courteous, helpful and always refilling beverages! (Kid's chicken tenders/nuggets/fingers and fries always on hand for the grandkids.) Just writing this makes my mouth water.

We have been to Donnellys many times and do love their build your own burgers and their wings. Some of the other sandwichs are okay but burgers and wings are the best. Picking beers from the iPad as they change all the time is a great idea and they always have a great selection. It's typical bar with the noise... More

They have a build your own burger on the menu at a flat price. No nickel and dime you for each item. It's 8 ounces cooked perfectly on a fresh roll. You can load it with pretty much whatever is in the kitchen. I had bacon, cheddar, artichokes, sautéed onions and peppers, lettuce, mayo, and their own pickled jalapeño peppers... More

Yes, the beer selection comes on an iPad at Donnelly's these days! And it's big one too with several newcomers and one or two at special prices. A friend and I ate at Donnelly's sitting at the bar and enjoyed good food and banter with the barmaid. The atmosphere is relaxed and not crowded at lunch times, sitting outside under... More

We stopped by Donnelly's for an early Sunday diner. The place was packed for the various football games. We sat in the dining section next to the bar and it was as expected loud. The service was great but the food was just average. We started out with an order of grilled garlic-parmasan chicken wings. They appeared to have been... More

As I love trying different beers, this is one of my favorite restaurants in Fairport. They offer a great website to monitor what's on tap and even offer iPads up to view at the bar. Their "on deck" section is a clever way to keep those interested in the various brews coming back for more. Food is very good and... More

Enjoyed curb side dinning on beautiful night with family. Service was over the top great. Patrick was a treasure My turkey Rubin should have had thinner slices of turkey. The fact that we could make reservations for out door seating was perfect. Will go back for sure.

Food is less than what I would expect evn from a sports bar which is basically what it is. I've eaten there twice this summer and have felt ill afterwards both times. Very much a neighborhood bar where it feels cliqueish in terms of service by both patrons and bartenders if you're not a regular. Large selection of beer if... More
