What more can I add about one of the top restaurants in Worcester? What we liked: - we had a private room for the 10 of us celebration someone's (ahem) birthday. Perfect for a mixed generation occasion. - the waitstaff was friendly, helpful and efficient. Added to the experience - the menu had such a wide assortment that if you... More

The food is consistently good. We have gone many many times over the past few years and have never had a bad experience. The staff is helpful and friendly as is management. Seating is a bit tight as the restaurant holds many so it gets a little loud especially when our very loud family visits. We are generally a large... More

O'Connors is a wonderful restaurant,..the kind of restaurant that you tell your friends about! The Irish food is true to your Irish heritage, the atmosphere is comfortable and cozy and from watching the faces of the others around you, it is obvious that everyone is having a great time! The prices are good, the portions are big and you will... More

Greeted immediately upon entering, great decor and friendly hostess. We arrived after 9 pm so there wasn't a wait to be seated. We had a comfortable booth with decent privacy. Our waitress Kimberly, was prompt to ask for our drink selections, menus and whether we were interested in some bread. The menu was expansive and the prices were very reasonable.... More

The bar scene at O'Conner's is lively and the appetizers are good! However the meals in the restaurant need improvement

Went to o'Connor's Restaurant and Bar as a result of a discussion with a relative who lives in Ireland. The restaurant was extremely busy so we expected an amazing experience. We were somewhat disappointed. The service was great, the food - not so much. I had the seafood pie which was a little cool when it arrived at the table.... More

My husband and I have been dining here for years. We love this place! The food is always good but recently they have been cutting back and serving precut bagged lettuce in their Caesar Salads. This is very frustrating for me because their Caesar Salad's were always so fresh and nice. I have complained about this three times to the... More

Saturday night can be crazy. The wait staff are very competent and efficient. The food is always well prepared. There is always a nice buzz of conversation.

Just plain over rated, was once a benchmark for good honest comfort food that was a fusion of Irish and American food. The last time we visited was a family function, seeing both family and friends was worth the visit but, not the food.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. I don't care if you have to wait in line, you can listen to the Irish brogues of the owners and pretend you are in the old country. The pecan chicken is one of my favorites as well as Soprano chicken in season. The shepherds pie is always a delight. The staff is... More
