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

Nice Irish pub, great service and servers. My wife had the dipper sandwich and I had the Celtic Reuben sandwich with sweet potato fries. Her au jus was not the greatest, but she enjoyed her sandwich and fries. I loved my Reuben with the sweet potato fries. Had a good time

The food is great, service is good but we cringe when we see the singer setting up! The singing is awful. Nothing but LOUD 'wailing' while strumming the guitar.

Party of 10 dined at O'Connors prior to Meadowbrook theatre. Service was outstanding. Our server, Ashley, was very knowledgeble about menu items. Happy hour drink prices until 6.

Stopped in for drinks and really liked the ambiance. Great service. We weren't ready to eat but will go back as the menu was extensive and all the food coming out of the kitchen looked and smelled delicious.

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.
