"Consistently one of the best spots in town. Good food, good service and a great choice of drafts, local and otherwise."
-- Review on urbanspoon.com / view website

About the Project
Donnelly’s was the first business to start “restaurant lane" on Liftbridge Lane in 2004. The owners invested private sector money into the purchase and renovation of the property and turned it into a much frequented bar and restaurant.

About the Owner
Scott Donnelly has years of experience in the restaurant industry. He showed great commitment in building up this now well-known Fairport hot spot.

Financial Assistance
In order to stabilize the location on Liftbridge Lane, OCED bought the property out of foreclosure and invested into infrastructure improvements (lights, pavement, curb). OCED provided business assistance to the owners of Donnelly’s and supported them with a loan after flood damage.
