Food was Great!

Four of us had all different entrees. All were very good! Very fresh and hot! The place itself is filled with cool Irish photos and artifacts. The servers were great; food took a long time to come, but was great when it came!

Service is good. Food is ok. Meals are ordinary, more like comfort food. Sometimes it is great and sometimes it is ok.

Went for family lunch on Saturday @1:30 p.m. thinking it wouldn't be too busy. The place was packed but we were able to get a table for 4 right away. The waiter brought our drinks and took our food order. We did not see him again for quite some time but understood he was very busy and believed our food... More

Friendly place, good service, good food ... what more could you ask for? We've eaten at this "Irish pub" type restaurant several times and never been disappointed. Suggestion: try the cedar plank salmon! Although it has an Irish theme, the menu is varied, with all types of entrees. The Shannon Bar has a wide selection of beers on tap, too.

Great selection of meals, desserts and drinks. Try Mac's Cheesy Potatoes, sliced roast beef and a Giuness. The staff were great. It is usually busy but you won't feel rushed. As my Dad likes to say, it must be good if they have a big parking lot.

We had a lunch time reservation. When half our party did not show we were easily re-seated in a booth. Food was excellent (very hot) and service was good too. We love this place (drove from Hartford, CT just to eat here)

for an irish pub, it is a pretty big establishment. the large bar area is great for drinks and snacks, the sit-down dining area has well cooked and authentic irish recipes. service is good, but when it is busy, it can get a bit crazy. for the best experience, go off-peak. decor and ambiance are an added bonus.

Authentic Irish food and atmosphere. Have been to O'Connor's many times. Each visit brings a new experience. The Irish atmosphere is ever changing but the food continues to be good. Bring a CC as the prices are a bit steep for the area.

Truly a local landmark. Authentic Irish food with so many other great options. I'm Italian and I really like the calamari (breaded in corn meal). Kale, beet salad was great too. The place is always jammed with patrons but there's never a problem finding a place to sit. Sooooo many unique rooms and mementos on the walls, etc. And of... More
