I have been an avid patron of O'Connors since it opened in April 1989. A recent meal of lamb shanks with mashed potatoes and a wonderful gravy with veggies accompanied by a pint of Goose Island IPA was a heavenly experience. If you are in the Worcester area and you want to experience one of the great Irish pubs on the planet make sure you make a trip to O'Connors. If you see Himself or Herself tell them Sully sent you. Slainte.

I am more inclined to believe in leprechauns than I am to believe it's possible to get a bad meal at this restaurant. Their Irish Sheperd's Pie is the best I have ever had. Have eaten here a bunch of times, just can't get a bad meal. Great food and very reasonably priced. Atmosphere is fantastic- authentically "Irish pubby," but done in a very elegant way. Outstanding beer selection, too.

Excellent meal - great beer selection, ambiance excellent (reminiscent of an Irish pub), great service staff. Went with two friends - all meals excellent. Very popular because it is so good.

The food never disappoints. It's good to see they have returned to their roots by expanding their craft beer offerings. I had the pork stroganoff from the specials menu -- a nice deviation from the old standard with the use of pork and the addition of three mustards to the sauce.

O'Connor's is a wonderful restaurant to visit. Every time we are in the area, this is where we go. The menu is extensive, with many items of Irish background. They have a mac and cheese with lobster from Emeril. There is a shepherd's pie, too. You can order pork, steak, chicken, fish, and veggie dishes. The desserts are so yummy! I really like the ice cream puff. It has either vanilla or chocolate ice cream and hot fudge. The Bailey's ice cream pie is also excellent. This time, there was also a three-berry pudding. There are fresh fruit dishes, sundaes, and pies. The restaurant has a full bar. The staff is wonderful! They want you to walk away with a happy feeling, so that you will return.
