Good food, free popcorn, great musicians, and most of all a friendly and welcoming staff that really go out of their way to make you feel at home. I'm of course partial to the last Sunday of the month Irish sessions where players of all ages get together to share in a timeless tradition.” - Hope C

Donnelly's is a Fairport classic... They have an extensive beer list, fairly good wine selection, and fantastic staple foods. I really love the specials — they are always changing it up, and the Friday seafood options are always amazing.” - Kate M

The place itself is very Irish… They have some of Rochester's favorite bands play... From the looks of the bar (and bathroom), you better be a Notre Dame fan, or at least pretend you are when in house… it's a pretty great homage.” - Andy S
