Welcome to DeFlippo's Restaurant and Hotel
DeFlippo's, built in 1870, is one of Lockport's oldest landmarks. It was
originally owned by carriage makers Brown & Bronson. Dominick & Barbara
DeFlippo purchased this property in 1941 to relocate a thriving ice business.
In 1946 Dominick, inspired by his wife's delicious sauce, began the
restaurant business. With the help and support of the entire family a very
successful restaurant emerged. For the next 31 years, dining out for great
Italian food has meant DeFlippo's.
Continuing the family tradition since 1977 are Jerry & Joan DeFlippo.
With hard work and vision they have expanded the business to include
a larger kitchen, more dining room seating, take-out & catering services
as well as a beautiful new Bed & Breakfast. Today, Jerry can be found
in the kitchen still following his Mom's recipes, while Joan welcomes you
into the dining room with a smile.
Jerry & Joan's son, Dominick, a 1989 graduate of the Culinary Institute
of America has added many innovative touches to the menu. He
continually strives to create new and exciting dishes while maintaining the
quality that DeFlippo's is known for.
Taking over as third generation DeFlippo family owner in 2006,
Dominick continues to offer excellent food and service
in the traditional DeFlippo family atmosphere.
Our family has now enjoyed over 65 years of service in our community.
Thank you to all our customers for their support during these years.
We look forward to serving you!
Jerry & Joan DeFlippo
