We were invited by our dear friends to celebrate his birthday in the cobblestone pub, and we were again treated to fine meals. I started with some delicious onion soup and a glass of a Finger Lakes riesling wine that lasted the rest of my meal including a delicious tenderloin steak and very smooth mashed potatoes. Our birthday boy had the steak, but he started with his favorite, oysters on the half shell. We had great meals, and although we have been to Richardson’s Canal House many times before, each time is very special, augmented by our historic surroundings on the Erie Canal.

Stopped in here with some friends for coffee and dessert. Great choice of desserts and reasonably priced too.
Coffee was self serve, but seemed to be freshly ground. One member of our party disappointed that they don't do lattes and cappucinos.

The shops has the feel of an upmarket farm shop. Everything looked delicious and fresh. The apple pies looked especially good.

Would definitely try the lunch next time we are visiting

Lemoncello is not about pampered, chi chi tiny-portion-Italian cuisine - it is robust Italian-American of a stellar quality. The specials indicate however the genius of chef - we tried a combination of the specials and the items on the regular menu, which are your basic Italian-american dishes (parm! spag bol! etc). The special soup of the day was a mushroom that was exceptional, trimmed with just the right amount of truffle oil and garlic essence. The fish special featured stunning seafood and wahoo, grilled to perfection, with garlic mash and sauteed vegetables. Just these two dishes indicated the genius of chef. The items off the menu: the linguine vongole with red sauce was oversauced with unfortunate gobbets of marinara, probably an indication of the Italian-American interpretation of the dish. The greens, beans on pappardelle was also oversauced, but extremely tasty. Needless to say, the homemade pasta in both cases was fantastic - however, quality of the pasta would have been more apparent if not buried by the extreme quantities of sauce. Waitstaff was brisk but friendly and knowledgeable. Note: it was a bit offputting to arrive at what looks to be a restaurant to enter straight into a bog standard neighborhood bar, complete with long haired chappy playing '70s guitar. Advice to management: give more scope to chef, please!

We met several friends here for lunch. Everyone chose something different from the menu, all dishes were enjoyed and we decided we need to return to try more of this wonderful oriental cuisine. Lovely presentation‼️. Service was excellent and we enjoyed time to continue conversations after we finished eating - appreciated that!

Pittsford Farms Dairy

Reviewed By Marlene W - Hong Kong, China

For the 30 years we've lived in Pittsford, buying the tree was the joyful part of this old establishment. This year, 2 of "santas helpers" (blokes to tie and tether) were reprimanded when they sold me a tree with a label indicating US34 and the boss elf stated that that label was wrong: it HAD to have "fallen off" one of the wreaths and hooked itself firmly into the tree. Boss elf produced an entirely different tag which was for US49 which was supposedly the RIGHT tag. Santa's helpers not impressed. Boss elf as grumpy pants. Solution: split the difference, fer petesakes. My recommendation: the venue is nostalgic, but some Ebeneezer is running the show. Go with the Boy Scouts, use this place for photo ops. (Oops, Ebeneezer might want his royalty fee...).

Stopped bye here before a concert at the Fairport Gazebo by the Canal - Our first time and were surprised at all the wonderful flavors -all homemade. Difficult to choose so we will have to return often. I chose 2 scoops one of Oatmeal flavor (outstanding, yum) and Sea Salt Caramel (also super delicious. Very friendly service by Mikee and tables inside to sit and enjoy if we chose - or enjoy your treat at the park next door. We will definitely return soon.

Great service even though it was extremely busy. We all had different dishes and all were very good. One was seafood that my wife had. She said that it was delish. The birthday boy had an egg plant special, which he devoured. My chicken parm.
was huge, I had to bring half of it home.
Excellent value !

YOU HAVE TO GET THE TATER TOTS! Food is generally large is quantity and fine in quality--hamburgers, sandwiches, wings (the grilled wings are especially good). Many people loudly at the bar, and couples/families/grandparents/kids at the tables ordering food. Good beer selection. TVs around.

We love this place! We order a kiddie cone and can barely eat it all. Best prices in town, wonderfully friendly staff, and great selections of ice cream. Lots of seating options available on the Erie Canal and the towpath trail provides an excellent opportunity to walk as you enjoy your special treats.

Very good Thai restaurant

Reviewed By midcoast6 - Camden, Maine

This tucked away restaurnant is where locals enjoy authentic Thai cuisine. The restaurant was bustling on the day we were there. The menu is expansive and boosts many noodle and curry dishes as well as many tradional Thai entree dishes. Many options for Vegans or Vegetarians.
