I visit this restaurant once a month for a dog club meeting. They are extremely accommodating with our group and with the huge range of menu items all of our members can find something to satisfy their cravings. They offer Irish specialties, steaks, seafood, burgers and great specials (try the seafood mac n cheese if it's available) with good-sized portions... More

O'Connor's serves great food in an Irish themed pub-like atmosphere. It has a diverse menu, offering Irish fare, local seafood, and standard American grub. A great family restaurant.

We've been eating at O'Connors for years. Brendon and Claire have managed to combine an wonderful Irish pub with an excellent restaurant. The prices are fair, the service is excellent, and the décor has a certain Gallic wacky charm.

It's no wonder we keep returning to O'Connors, it's the atmosphere, the food, the consistency of all three, all the time. The Guiness Pie is an all time favorite, the traditional Irish decor, music and theme, not to mention the owner's and staff's welcoming and friendly personalities always puts us in a great mood. Well that, and the beautiful bar... More

We visited O'Connors for the first time in late 2013, and have returned a handful of times. It is right off Route 195 on the Northeast edge of Worcester. The walls are loaded with Irish decor, from little sayings to pictures to traditional Irish road signs. Plenty for the eyes to take in while dining. The menu is pretty diverse,... More

Recently dined here as a staff Christmas Party. We were seated in a cozy little room so we had lots of privacy and didn't disturb other diners. All of our meals were excellent, although I found the Chicken Pot pie to be HUGE and could only eat half of it. There is traditional Irish Fare but then lots of other... More

O'Connor's still has great service and an unbeatable old Irish pub feel to it, but it's fare has slipped to the level of Applebee's....none of our food was anything special, and the prices were no bargain. Things seem to have peaked in the late 90's....but it still has one of the city's best bars.

Low quality food... Served cold... Owner was insulting and rude and the waitress said the owner doesn't mean to be like that... It's just because he is Irish! Who says that and thinks its a good excuse for bad behavior ? My Irish boyfriend and I will never go there again!
