“What a great surprise”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Last Tuesday ate dinner at Fazool's Italian Kitchen. Learned about this restaurant from an ad within our campground's directory (Hickory Ridge Campgrount) of nearby sites, restaurants, etc. What a surprise!!! Arrived at 5:30 and our server graciously extended the early bird menu to our group (early bird menu ended at 5:30). We were seated outside on a warm evening (unbrella covered tables) with the Erie Canal in full view and within steps to a bricked walkway along the canal. The early bird menu was small but ample and varied from Italian choices to pork chops. I ordered Chicken French which came with soup or salad Italian bread served with linguini or pasta on the side. While waiting for dinner the canal bridge lifted to allow a large boat to pass through; people were biking and strolling along a the canal but far enough away as to not be a disturbance. There was a wonderful musician playing 'Jimmy Buffet' style music.....felt as if I was back in the Florida Keys....superb atmosphere. The salad was fresh with a nice variety of vegetables, The Chicken French was very tasty; served over linguini......more than one could eat in one sitting.......actually had it for dinner the next evening. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. An added note for anyone who is a Pittsburgh Steeler fan (which I am), discovered this is Steeler headquarters!!!! every Sunday during the season, one can watch the Steelers play on a large screen TV!!! What a great surprise!!!!

“Slow Boat on Canal Side”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Fazool's is a restaurant / bar / "celebration hall" alongside the Erie Canal off the main street in downtown Brockport. Sitting outside along the canal was very nice. At the end of dinner, there was a live singer inside the bar area. Food prices were very reasonable and the total bill for 4 adults, 1 child was under $100. There were oddities: for an Italian place, they didn't have Spaghetti as a side -- which my son thought was very strange since he ordered Spahgetti and meatballs (it was linguini which he didn't like). My NY Strip was very good. The staff was very friendly and efficient -- but clearly there weren't enough people to cover the entire restaurant and it was a slow dinner. Overall, the food quality outweighed the service and dinner was enjoyable.

“Great food with excellent Service!”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

My husband and I tried this restaurant on a Tuesday night , and did not regret it. We had a very accommodating server who was extremely nice and who gave us wonderful service. My husband had the strip steak special and it was a nice cut of meat and grilled to perfection on an actual outdoor grill. My meal was also very good and there was plenty to take home! We also had a drink from the bar that we enjoyed. The drink price for a tall glass was very reasonable and we'll worth the cost. All in all a great value! We will return and suggest you should try it too!

“Good food, bad service.”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Fazools has very good food! However, the service is awful and the head chef/owner is a bit rude. If you don't mind really slow service, the food is certainly worth it, but there are many other places to go where both food and service are great!
