If you want Shepard's Pie or Bangers & Mash washed down with a Guinness this is the place. O'Connor's offers alot of other fare and many beers so there is something on the menu for everyone. Great service and more Irish memorabilia than you can see in one visit. I was there with a large group and they have several... More

Top notch 4 Star local restaurant. The ambience pervades a soft and classy Irish ethnicity. Very nice watering hole if waiting is required or if you just want to eat in the bar area. Food and service as good as anywhere! You will not be disappointed if you take your family, friends, date or have a business meeting there. The... More

I have eaten at O'Connor's several times in the past half dozen years, but have not yet written a review. Each of my experiences has been really excellent, but I can only write about today's lunch. Since my wife and I do not live near Worcester, we have eaten here only at lunch; so I can't comment on dinner menu... More

This is the second time in four years that we have been to O'Connors. Not impressed for the second time Our lunches were mediocre. They have much better fish down the road at West Boylston sea food. One of our party liked her Shepherd's pie. The server was very nice & attentive.

The food was very good. The portions were a little over sized but the quality was excellent. The atmosphere was buzzing in very authentic pub setting.

Have tried several items on menu...all very good. Favorite Guinness pie. Only down side is sometimes depending on night, the crowds cause lengthy wait for table.

My husband and I were enjoying dinner out with another couple (Restaurant Week in March) and decided on O'Connors. We had reservations and although crowded we were seated within 5 minutes of our arrival. Our waitress took our drink order- she wasn't overly friendly, we sensed she would have preferred to have been somewhere else. 3 out our party ordered... More

The ambiance is exuberant, bustling steak house. Really nice exterior matches really nice interior. Saturday night it was packed with people in every nook and cranny: 25 people waiting when we arrived, but the half hour wait at the bar was fine. Server was a very very nice guy, but drinks took a while (15 min) as did ordering. Food... More
