Excellent

Always a great meal!! I have been going to O'Connor's for years and I have yet to have a bad meal. Call ahead on the weekends for less of a wait but the wait is worth it!!

This is by far average food. Healthy size portions but lacking in taste. They have quite a turnover of customers. I'm always amazed at how full this place is! I guess it's the large portions for a decent price. But when I go out, I want to have something better than what I can cook at home. I have given... More

Excellent food, large seating capacity, reasonable prices on most items and food quality is very good. There are many item to choose from - almost too many!

This was my first time at O'Connor's. I was with a group that totaled five people. The atmosphere here is like taking a trip to Ireland. The service was excellent. The food was good, but not great. I started with the French Onion Soup (one of my favorite dishes). It as very good and the touch of Brandy made it... More

The many appetizers we ordered were all extremely delicious. We ordered a function room, which fit everyone invited, and was personal enough for us to speak as loudly as we wanted. A waiter came in every so often to make sure we had everything we needed and was very kind. The décor was also very unique.

Go early to O'Connor's because it is always mobbed, and justifiably so. The food is delicious pub grub. We go often and find the atmosphere friendly and fun. The fish dishes are great as are all the pot pies. The staff is first-rate. This restaurant has grown over the years and become a local treasure.

Have been to O'Connors several times and it's always good food. The staff are always friendly and usually pretty attentive. I love the variety they have along with some all time favorites like Guiness Pie and Chicken Francais. Too many to mention beers! But know you will love them all.

I found this place after searching Trip Advisor. I went with a co-worker for dinner. We pulled in the parking lot just prior to 6:00pm and the place was packed! We ordered an appetizer and beer. There was a very good selection of Irish beer and all the standard domestics. My co-worker ordered one of the meat pies and we... More

This was our 3rd or 4th visit to O'Connor's and we have never been disappointed. We live in Connecticut so we don't get here as often as we would like, but it is well worth the trip, and closer then County Mayo. I had the Harp batter fish & chips and my wife Kathleen had the corned beef panini. The... More

Everything good you read about the restaurant is true. So true. Just pay attention to the comments regarding the owner. Very simply, he's a dick. It's happened several times, we leave shaking our heads at his absolute rudeness and vow never to return. Ok, we do, but that doesn't make it right. He should be ashamed of himself.
