Pub atmosphere. Didn't eat there but did see people having some late night food. Stopped in for a night cap since the Boston Park Plaza bar was closed at 11. Busy bar business. Seemed like a younger crowd, out after work.

Cozy place to wander into on a Friday evening. In town for Garth Brooks concert and they were playing his songs!! Yay! Beer was cold and delicious, beef stew was hot and very tasty. Fast service, place was filling up fast as we were leaving. Sad that we can't go again before we leave!

We therefore booked through open table and thought nothing further until we arrived at Logan airport to receive confirmation from open table our reservation had been cancelled (this... More

After arriving and checking in to the Boston Park Plaza hotel, my boyfriend and I headed to M.J. O'Connor's for a late lunch and a drink. The staff was excellent and very fast. We had clam chowder (very tasty) and he had a burger while I had the chicken sandwich, which was delicious and a very good portion. Their drinks... More

We enjoyed our previous visit here so we decided to return. We were seated right inside the door very close to the bar area. We immediately remembered how loud this restaurant was last time. It is clearly a meeting place for people who work in the city. At times we felt as though we were yelling. The service was good... More

This was out first stop when arriving to Boston. A 2 min walk from our hotel. Great beer selection and great bar food. Very large portions. Go hungry! Atmosphere was good. Really surprised me how big the place was once inside. Wish I would have visited again at night. Looks like it would be a happening place. Only bad thing... More

We are staying at The Revere Hotel and walked around the corner to MJ O'Connor's. What a nice surprise! Between the 3 of us we ordered the Fish and Chips, Beef Stew and the French Onion Soup. Our food came out very quickly and everything was delicious and well worth a visit. The Soup was very rich and delicious. The... More

Had lunch there on our first day and so glad, the food is fresh and the service was great. In fact we went back the next day for more clam chowder.
