“Great food in a cool atmosphere”
Reviewed October 15, 2010

The food here is fantastic! Particularly good are the pot pies which come in a crust that somewhere along its creation involves a dash of beer...these are insanely good. The atmosphere is cool too - lots of dark wood, brass, and mirrors, and festooned with Irish photos and slogans and such.

The parking can be scarce when it's busy, and dining at peak hours on a Friday or a Saturday will mean waiting in a farily cramped space with little or no seating (as a good number of folks are there for the bar and not the resstaurant at that hour), but if you time it right you can get right in, get seated, and have a fantastic meal in no time at all.

“Great Food, Great Price”
Reviewed June 8, 2010

Normally Irish pub food is pretty bland, but O'Connor's really provides a lot of great variety and great taste.

Some have complained about the wait but its overated. The most you usually wait is 15 minutes or so and they have ample room in the bar area to get a drink.

“Outstanding food, service, value...but you'll need to wait.”
Reviewed February 23, 2010

I took advantage of the phone ahead feature to make reservations. We were not in a hurry but we didn't want to be out oo late. We still had 1/2 hour wait but that wasn't too bad. The food is fantastic and reasonably priced. The drinks are fairly extensive (at least for the beer and wine) and the service is top notch. For an otherwise mundane weekend stay in the area, O'Connor's was a huge bright spot.

“Delicious”
Reviewed February 10, 2010

This is one of the best resteraunts I have visited. Everything was perfect, from the cozy atmosphere, to the welcoming staff, and especially to the heart-warming food. The resteraunt was large, that it didn't feel packed, even though there were a ton of people there.

I suggest you order the squash soup.

The only thing I didn't really like was my dessert
