“Fantastic restaurant! don't miss out!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2011

Every year we take a trip to Boston, Ma to visit with family there and one place we always visit is O'Connor's. We long ago discovered this restaurant in Worcester and have never been disappointed. It is authentic Irish cooking and it is absolutely great! The service is always friendly and they go out of their way to make your dining experience a good one! Their guinness pie melts in your mouth and is one item we never fail to order along with the shillelagh sticks....hhmm! do yourself a favor and go here when you can. You will be the winner!!

“There's a reason they're always busy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2011

Over the years we have dined here a couple of dozen times, even though they're not close. Great food - always. Great service - always. Supurb beer selection. The O'Connors are your hosts, and take great pride in their name being on the door.

Much more than Irish food on the menu, though the atmosphere is distinctly Irish-pub. Call ahead to get a table, though!

“Pub food, with a little flare”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2011

Went with a gorup of 12 for a lunch. A private room was reserved. The food was all served at one time but disappointing. Have been there several times but have never felt it was a place I would crave to go back to. My hamburg was overcooked and so thick I had to take it out of the bun to eat it. The onion was at least 1/4 inch thick and the whole burger just slid out of the bun.

“Great Place for a Small Party!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

Needed somewhere for a small (14 guests) party after a recent family event, and chose O'connor's. I had called earlier and even thought it was a Friday night they said they could accommodate us. They didn't even ask for a deposit or cc # to hold the room. We were seated promptly when we arrive and assigned two waitresses, sisters, who were absolutely great. Food and drink were ordered in abundance and everything was well-prepared and tasty. We were allowed to bring our own cake for the occasion and the waitresses did the cutting and serving. We really felt at home. If you have a chance, make sure to try O'connor's.

“Fabulous food and great ambiance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2011

We visited this restaurant wihile visiting my son and daugher-in-law. This restaurant was one of the highlights of our 3 week visit. Even though this restaurant is quite large, it is well laid out to create cozy and intimate areas. The ambiance was simply wonderful! I love pot pies and this is the place to go for good ole comfy food! Good eats, great atmosphere, friendly staff!
