We had a great time here...so much that we returned the next day. Great craft beer selection and the bloody mary bar on Saturday was a fun option.

Dark atmosphere, nonexistent true Irish fare, minus the Guinness. No Irish tea!! Tea served in a tall glass coffee mug where you’d need three bags to still allow for the taste of tea. Give me a small pot of hot water with a tea cup,...More

Excited to try their corned beef and cabbage I was disappointed both in presentation and flavor. It seems everything is just simply boiled, perhaps together and served in a bowl with some kind of flavorless broth. The corned beef was ok, but the cabbage was...More

I've got to be honest, the food was horrible. How do you mess up chicken tenders? And the drinks tasted like rubbing alcohol. The waitress was incredibly kind in getting us another one but even that one tasted horrible. Thinking it was more of a...More

Established in 2005.O'Connor's was designed and built by the Prairie Pub Company, one of only five Guinness approved authentic Irish pub builders in the world. The finished pub was shipped to the States and reassembled in the historical downtown district of Rochester Michigan.Stop by and enjoy some of the of history in this Irish pub. Some particular items to take special notice of are the floor located in the main bar area dating back more than 140 years, also the the stone wall separating the dinning area from the bar was once an exterior wall, now recovered offering a soft rustic feel. You will also notice stain glass and wrought iron in the pub which was harvested from crumbling churches through out Ireland.
