Stopped for lunch, having found this on my cell phone gps. What an incredible surprise! The food was outstanding! Had an avocado gouda burger cooked just as I asked for (rare but not moving...usually comes out well done but this chef gave me what I requested)! My husband had the most amazing reuben with mouthwatering, melt in your mouth corned... More

This restaurant is really busy. It is open daily for lunch and dinner. They are closed on Sundays, except for special occasions such as Mother's Day. The service is excellent, beginning with the people who seat you. They are really friendly. The waitstaff is also excellent. They have nice uniforms and quickly arrive at your table to ask for your... More

I didn't have very high expectations given the location close to the highway and atmosphere (just looks like a generic pub), but it was quite tasty! The crab cakes came with a delicious fresh salsa and the mac & cheese was creamy and delicious. The portions were large and the waitress was friendly.

Although we live local, it had been years since we had visited O'Connor's. I won a gift certificate in a charity raffle and we stopped for a dinner on a Friday night. We sat in the bar/lounge area. The atmosphere is cozy and the decor is fun with an Irish motif everywhere. Our server was pleasant and upbeat. The menu... More

I've been to O'Connor's many times, when it was pretty busy and when it was really busy, and I've always had good food and good service in a great atmosphere. It's a jovial sort of place, decorated in a fascinating way, abounding in unusual dishes, but not neglectful of those with tamer tastes. Brendan and Claire are wonderful as host... More

I love O'Connors. When it comes to good service, good food, and a good price, the typical modus operandi for Worcester is that you can have any 2 of those 3. O'Connors is the only restaurant in Worcester I've been to that consistently offers all three. It's the best family restaurant I can think of in the area, and most... More

I visited here with my partner, son, parents-in-law and grandmother. We had made a booking and got a table quickly. I love the restuarant's decor, as there are signs and posters hung all over the walls. The only downside to this visit was that the service was fairly slow, it took us forty five minutes to get meals. I did... More

I've had lunch here 3 times in the last 8 days. The menu is so large and varied- it's always hard to choose what to get. But I've never been disappointed! Everything is always great and the service is excellent! Try the Black and Blue for a drink- 1/2 Guinness and 1/2 Wachusett Blueberry Ale. Delicious!!
