They have THE BEST burgers! So thick you can barely get in in your mouth. The reubens are excellent also.

I first went to O'Connell's in 1879 and little has changed in 36 years. If you like hamburgers they served the best in town then and they still do so now. The draught beer selection has been updated but much of the menu remains intact....More

We come to O'Connell's Pub a couple times a year for the roast beef sandwiches and cheeseburgers. We also love the fact that it is the same as it was back in the 80's when we lived near St Louis and first started coming here....More

Hands down the best burger in town and on Friday's the fish and chips special is to die for. Relaxed atmosphere with a very friendly staff.

Nice spot for a sandwich and a beer or mixed drink. Right at the foot of the famous "Hill" where the best Italian food is found, this is the spot for a corned beef sandwich that will satisfy the hungriest of appetites.
