Authentic Irish menu! I I wish they still had the brunch buffet. Nothing on the menu is bad. Watch the chips, they are addicting. We have even had a shower here in the back room. Nothing like the Irish!

We stopped in o'connors for a drink after shopping on a Saturday afternoon. We weren't hungry and just wanted a beverage. That was perfectly fine with the waitress. We later decided to split an appetizer and decided to try the cheese board. It was excellent! Could have served 4. We will definitely be back!

The atmosphere is gaelic and comfortable. The staff is first class. The food (with lots of choices) is amazing. I was here for a pre-wedding party and everyone had a great time. The waitstaff did a very competent job of handling everyone's individual orders. I had the Guiness Stew and would recommend it highly! It's right in the center of... More

This restaurant has found its niche. Irish fun and food for sure, but with a fantastic chef who can prepare more than traditional Irish fare. Loud and raucous at times, but infectious. One of the best reuben sandwiches around. You cannot help but have a good time when here. Brunch is outstanding. Good bourbon choices at the bar with giant... More

This is an Irish restaurant with decent food and drinks. The menu is quite standard. The scotch egg is very good.

We love this place! Second time here and everything we've had has been fresh and delicious. Fish and chips tonight were the best we've had in a long long time. Nachos were phenomenal but be warned - enough for a meal...or two! Waitstaff courteous and quick to seat us and take our order. Highly recommend.

Excellent service and staff. Great new menu. Great at holiday time since the staff dresses up. I love to see this. Great entertainment too. A great evening out. Bloody Mary Bar is a BIG Plus! The O'Connor sauce on the burger is great too.

My husband and I have lived in Rochester for six years and had yet to visit this restaurant. Now we know why.... Although the selection was good, the food was horrible. My husband ordered the Shepard's pie which was undercooked. When we mentioned this to the manager, she argued with us. The restaurant may have done the right thing by... More
