Heard about this place from friends in the area, decided to check it out for ourselves. Pros: Friendly servers. HUGE portions Cons: It was LOUD in there Hubby and I got a steak and a teuben. Both were good, I brought home the other half of my reuben, and it wasn't so good the next day. Obviously this is a... More

I went to school nearby and any time my family would come visit we would tend to go to O'Connor's! They have great comfort food, a ton of dishes from Ireland, and a great wraparound bar in the middle of the restaurant. They have little alcoves which make you feel you are in your own little world and can become... More

Brought some fiends from out of state for supper here. Special note of Karen, our excellent server and photographer. Our friend had never had a "banger" and Karen was able to get him a single one for tasting. It was very good. Two Shepherds pies, a chicken pot pie, and an Oktoberfest Sausage platter were all very well prepared, and... More

Have eaten at O'Connor's several times, most recently a few days ago, when a friend and I had dinner there. Had to wait awhile to be greeted or seated, which was odd because there were quite a few servers bustling about but no one took notice of us standing there for many minutes. The restaurant has (no surprise) an Irish... More

Lunch - 4 of us, Rueben excellent with lots of French fries, the shepherd pie was very good, the soup was very good, but the caprise sandwich was a little disappointing

Solid comfort food, many levels above pub food (but you can get that too), a great beer selection and very good service. Eating at the bar is especially enjoyable if you can find a seat amongst the many regulars. On a cool fall or winter night their menu items really fit the bill. They also do a nice job with... More
