Love the Guiness Pie!

I highly recommend O'Connor's, especially the Guiness Pie. There's a strong Irish feel, an extensive menu, pleasant staff, great food, wide alcoholic selection, and decadent desserts.

If you are unfamiliar with Worcester, this is a bit of a drive from downtown (off I-190 and north of I-290). Still, it was worth it. We were celebrating an event for our daughter in Worcester for Tufts Veterinary School and with our daughter's name being Siobhan, where else do you go but an Irish Restaurant. We arrived just prior... More

This place is gigantic. We visited Worcester during the Ice Age of 2014-"15. We dined on Friday 13, the evening before Valentine's Day. Since an additional foot of snow was forecast for V-Day, many folks were dining that evening. We called and had our name placed on "The List". We waited approximately 7 minutes though the place was jammed. It... More

Brought friends here who were visiting from Maryland they were very impressed with service and quality of food. We as locals vist O'Connors a few times a year and have always been satisfied with food and service. Very friendly atmosphere.

This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. We like to eat in the bar area and love the friendly atmosphere. We have been going there for 5 years and have never had a bad meal or poor service.

We love O'Connor's! This is frequently our go-to for date night. We could honestly say we have never had a meal that we didn't enjoy. We love the variety of the menu, and of course there is always a Guinness to enjoy too.

The food at O'Connor's is excellent. One only has to look at their spacious parking lot around at lunch and dinner time and see that people who live in this area patronize this restaurant. Brendan O'Connor I think is part of the lure of the restaurant. His Irish wit is outstanding. I usually get the special of the day and... More

From himself at the door to the fun items on the children's menu, you'll feel like you're in Ireland - food is awesome, atmosphere as well

The food is decent and the menu extensive. Very popular place, but in my opinion it is 'tired', a little seedy, and unimaginative. The inside is dark and not uplifting at all and for that reason I do not like to frequent.

Brendan and his wife the hardest working restaurante owners around. Always busy and can get a little noisy.... But the food is great and service always fantastic. A true Irish pub atmosphere. They do a Great job with functions as well!
