Our favorite local pub and eatery.

Best local pub and eatery in Fairport! Great Service and awesome good. Look for the nightly specials that supplement the regular menu.

Sat on the sidewalk with my boyfriend, good atmosphere and great service. I ordered the chicken wings and sweet potato fries, both were delicious! I'd come back, but probably just to sit outside. Inside was a little dark, but obviously that is something that is more personal to me.

Good menu selections. Good prices. You gotta try their grilled chicken wings, they are sooo much better than deep fried. Some find it a bit noisy here. Dine inside or out (weather permitting).

Located across from the canal in Fairport, this was by far my favorite stop on our drive! Fairport itself is very small but such a lovely stop! Dinner at Donnelly's just completed our day. It's a lively Irish pub with an amazing menu! We had a steak dinner that I still think about today, the best! Great service, fun staff!... More

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.

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.

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.
