Great lunches

Stopped here with friends for lunch after a round of golf on a warm early summer day. Sat outside under the canopy. Our sandwiches and salads were excellent, as were our drinks.

Great food and pub experience. Always good service with huge selection of beverages. Wings are a specialty. The only problem with this pub is the potential for having to wait for a table. The popularity results in lots of customers.

Friendly place, good food. Been our "local" since the day it opened. The owner is quietly one of the most genuine and generous people in our fair town.

My wife and I were looking for nice little place for dinner and we lucked out. The service was excellent and very friendly. Food was typical pub fair but well prepared. Nice experience overall, definitely would go back.

Chicken fingers (buffalo style) are my all time favorite pub food when having a craft beer. They need to call these Chicken breasts because that is how big they are. They are hot, moist and tender. I get them every singe time! They are only $6.99 and if you want to add fries, that is only another $2.00. My travel... More

Above average pub grub with a very nice rotating assortment of draft beers. It's a favorite among the local Fairport crowd.

We were at a wine tasting and this place was recommended by our server. We went for lunch and we loved it! The beer selection was great, the food was excellent, and the waitress was very good. The serving sizes are huge. Most of us could eat only half of our sandwiches. We would definitely go back. Great atmosphere and... More

Donnelly's is my go-to place in Fairport. Beer selection is second to none and the food is always great. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. They are always able to suggest a new beer to try. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great meal and and excellent beer selection at a reasonable price.

Good place to go for typical pub fare. Food is good, beer selection adequate. Once past the door, and many of the eyes within evaluating you, it's a somewhat relaxing place.

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.
