I have always loved this place. Great memories coming here as a kid with the family for all occasions under the sun. Food is an excellent combination of European and New England delicacy with a great bar and a super friendly staff. Owners are off the boat Irishmen and I had a brother who used to work for them. They... More

Currently at #3 of 460+ restaurants in Worcester MA and at the recommendation of several friends, I was excited to try O'Connor's Restaurant. Definitely an Irish Pub atmosphere, I was getting even more excited upon arrival on a busy Saturday at about 6:30 PM. We were greeted by one of the owners "Himself" and told we had about a 5...

I have been here many times, and have always had great food, large portions, and wonderful service. My particular favorite is the Pecan Crusted Chicken. Can't go wrong there. It is always very busy, but it is a large restaurant, so you usually don't have to wait too long.

My husband recently enjoyed dinner out at O'Connor's. He had the broiled scallops with sweet potato fries, (no up charge on the fries), and I tried a tenderloin steak. His scallops were a generous portion of sweet delicious scallops, perfectly cooked. I tried a tenderloin steak, which arrived also perfectly cooked and extremely tender. However, the steak was not that... More

I hated squash ( and similar ) until I ate it here ( I give everything I am served a chance when I go out to eat ). Everything was excellent.

From the moment you walk up to the entrance you will love O'Connor's. Appreciate the Irish humor with the welcome sign, "Beer special: Order two, pay for both." If you are lucky enough, Himself will show you to your seat and greet you with his warmth and wit. The menu is fun and diverse, but the old standards are there... More

Recently moved to Worcester and can walk to O'Connors. I wanted to wait until we have visited 5 or 6 times to write a review. We like it! On most occasions, we sit at the bar and share an appetizer and have a beer. The bartenders are super efficient and friendly. Everyone seems to like working there and the whole... More
