I had forgotten how dark this place was. After using my cell phone light to view the menu, we were able to order. My husband and I both ordered cheeseburgers which were delicious. It took a little longer than it should have to be greeted; in fact a group of four came in after us and were served first. Also... More

Great Irish atmosphere! Friendly staff. Typical Irish pub (and we've been to Ireland and would find something like this there), except they were playing music from local station, not Irish, but no big deal to me. Small place so can get crowded fairly quickly, would be tight to maneuver through the place with a wheelchair or stroller. We were there... More

I have been here several times and always get the burger/ fries. The service was very good today and they are adding parking in the back. The restaurant is easy to get to and accessible right off the highway. Fun place!

Being as it is Tuesday and the sun is going to shine, it is a good day to ride motorcycles across The Stan Span over to Tucker and Park and Grand and Shaw and stop in to O'Connell's for their special of the day: The Reuben. And a draught Guinness will be a nice side! Although I do not live... More

Usually come here after a walk through the Botanical Garden; was fairly busy as was Veterans' Day. Burgers were excellent (mine and a friends) and served quickly. Typical good bar/pub food. Never disappointed.

This is my favorite place to eat in Saint Louis. I have a rare roast beef, with a side of mushrooms and onion rings, and the delicious salad. The interior is vintage period Saint Louis, with an antique buffalo head, old mirrors, and a printed tin ceiling. Great beer, great food, authentic atmosphere.

Have been a customer and fan since they were in Gaslight Square. Their burgers and roast beef are legendary. The beer is cold (they pour a good layered black and tan) and the service is efficient. Was my neighborhood bar no matter where in St Louis I lived. I visit every time I'm back. And the antiques on the second... More

This place has the feeling of an old city bar (which it is). It is very dark inside. Get a hamburger and a beer. The hamburgers do not disappoint. This is a good way to pass some time on a cold, windy Saturday.
