“Good Place For a Pint”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

The service was very good and price was reasonable. We went to have a pint and watch the hockey playoffs. It was a bit crowded at the bar so we had to wait a few minutes for a table.

“great martini!”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

This is an upscale Irish pub theme restaurant. I sat at the bar and had a classic martini that was great. The bartender was quick and friendly. I didn't eat dinner but others at the bar seemed to enjoy their meals. Typical pub menu with slight upscale recipes and presentation. The decor was lots of wood and very clean with fresco paintings on the ceiling and walls.

“Pleasant atmosphere; good location”
Reviewed April 30, 2013

As Mr. Nixon said, I want to make one thing perfectly clear: I did not eat any food in this pub. I dropped in on two occasions for a quick glass of wine at the bar in the early evening. This is a review of the ambiance, service, and bar scene.

O'Connor's is a friendly, cozy, appropriately dimly-lit establishment of the generic Irish type, though being in Boston, it has a tinge more genuineness than most. I dropped in there a couple of times and was not tempted to eat; though the happy hour menu (4-7) was inexpensive, there was nothing there that I could eat because I was going through one of my episodic vegan phases at the time.

Though I cannot write about the quality and flavor of the food, I can indeed write about the choice of food that was available, which was normal Irish pub fare. In all likelihood dishes such as boxty wedges with cheese dip and mini-sausages are both traditionally Irish and delicious, but they were off my personal radar. A vegan choice or three should, as a matter of principle, be available, in view of the exponentially increasing number of people adopting the vegan lifestyle, at least on an episodic basis.

Instead of food, I enjoyed a bright, fruity and reasonably priced glass or two of Cabernet at the bar. Service was prompt and attentive. Regrettably, I have forgotten the waitron's name, but he was excellent.

Had a number of healthier food choices been available, I would certainly have eaten there, and the establishment would have enjoyed an above-average rating.
