Have been several times, solid food, decent service. Depends on the night and the waitstaff, have had really good service, and have had quite the opposite.

We went to Holy Cross College with our daughter to visit our grandaughter who just transfered to that college. The restaurant is large and the barroom is visuall appealing. The food is preyy bood and the menu selection is large. When we arrived it was not crowded but started filling up quickly. There was a good selection of tap beers.... More

Our busy time is not an excuse for the service you experienced. We strive to provide a great dining experience above and beyond expectations. We... More

I had the famous lobster roll. My wife had the chicken pot pie. Both were extraordinary. Hot, tasty, ample portions and prices were reasonable. Full bar in the pub. Great for conversation. Nice variety of seating options - booths, tables, etc. Friendly staffing always helpful.

We chose O'Connor's because it was open on a Monday and I thought it had a good reputation. I should have read the reviews first. We arrived at 5:30 pm and the parking lot had a decent number of cars in it but still lots of spaces available. We were seated right away. Our server came promptly but it took... More

A group of us were meeting for lunch (10 people); lots of area restaurants were closed on Monday but O'Connor's was open. We all enjoyed our meals. I had a kale salad - quite tasty. The service was very good for a large party like ours.

If large portions are your thing, then you will probably like this place. If you want good flavor in your food, maybe this isn't the place for you. Two of our party got fish and chips which an Irish pub should do to perfection. We each got a huge piece of fish in a soggy, tasteless batter. Coleslaw was okay,... More

Food took forever and it was cold when we got it . Meal was not tasty at all. Waitress was nice and apologizes several times. She was clearly embarrassed about the whole situation.

The food is excellent and very reasonably priced. The service is also great, and I am treated quite well each time I go. I go to this place often and I highly recommend it.

From the moment you walk in you are surrounded by wonderful Irish memorabilia, greeted by the owner, Brendon, and seated in one of the many books and rooms in this spacious restaurant. The menu is second to none, with prices moderate in cost but portions large enough to take home for lunch the next day. A wide variety of salads,... More
