I really love this place. The homemade onion rings are amazing. I love the patty melt (lovingly referred to as the Penfield Special after the amazing patty melt called the special at Penfield High School Commons). The hot sauce is great, the service is friendly,...More

The food is commonplace and mediocre; never inedible, yet never outstanding. The attached pub has much more atmosphere than the hotdog stand-like restaurant, but even the pub lacks character. On the other hand, the staff is super friendly at every hour of the day; never...More

We ate lunch here this weekend, although we were in the back part of the restaurant, which is known as "The Pub." It is set up as exactly that, with a small bar and a pub setting...all very nice! I had an Asian salad with...More

We went to Dons Original in Seabreeze and for 3.69 we got exactly 14 generic French fries and practically begged for the complimentary pickles served by a girl who would rather be somewhere else...very over priced and you would think after 70 years they could...More

Love this place. A neighborhood well appointed little niche. Very sports friendly. Lots of tvs. Great food. The Reuben's are fantastic, as is the Cole slaw, soups & mashed potatoes. Friendly service & customers.

Great neighborhood location. I love the burgers, french fries and the onion rings. I can't pass up the hot sauce on the burgers. After filling up, we can't pass up the chocolate almond custard! In all fairness, this place could never compete with the original...More

This restaurant is run by some really fine people who, in addition to serving up a break pancake breakfast, also support the community in every way imaginable. They allow the kids from various soccer teams to come in and conduct pancake breakfasts, which are fantastic....More
