Others love the burgers but I'm a vegetarian. I have troubles breathing in the place. Something seems to trigger my asthma each time I've dined here so I'm not wild about the place. If this is where friends want to go, I go with them.

Ordered fish and chips for dinner. What we received was greasy soggy fish and chips. The greasiness on the fish as well as the chips was visible from across the room. The cook made a choice to serve it in such a greasy manner. Unfortunate for us because what everyone else ordered (such as the hamburger and bangers) were excellent.... More

Authentic Irish menu! I I wish they still had the brunch buffet. Nothing on the menu is bad. Watch the chips, they are addicting. We have even had a shower here in the back room. Nothing like the Irish!

We stopped in o'connors for a drink after shopping on a Saturday afternoon. We weren't hungry and just wanted a beverage. That was perfectly fine with the waitress. We later decided to split an appetizer and decided to try the cheese board. It was excellent! Could have served 4. We will definitely be back!

The atmosphere is gaelic and comfortable. The staff is first class. The food (with lots of choices) is amazing. I was here for a pre-wedding party and everyone had a great time. The waitstaff did a very competent job of handling everyone's individual orders. I had the Guiness Stew and would recommend it highly! It's right in the center of... More

This restaurant has found its niche. Irish fun and food for sure, but with a fantastic chef who can prepare more than traditional Irish fare. Loud and raucous at times, but infectious. One of the best reuben sandwiches around. You cannot help but have a good time when here. Brunch is outstanding. Good bourbon choices at the bar with giant... More

This is an Irish restaurant with decent food and drinks. The menu is quite standard. The scotch egg is very good.

We love this place! Second time here and everything we've had has been fresh and delicious. Fish and chips tonight were the best we've had in a long long time. Nachos were phenomenal but be warned - enough for a meal...or two! Waitstaff courteous and quick to seat us and take our order. Highly recommend.

Thank Wendy N

Established in 2005.O'Connor's was designed and built by the Prairie Pub Company, one of only five Guinness approved authentic Irish pub builders in the world. The finished pub was shipped to the States and reassembled in the historical downtown district of Rochester Michigan.Stop by and enjoy some of the of history in this Irish pub. Some particular items to take special notice of are the floor located in the main bar area dating back more than 140 years, also the the stone wall separating the dinning area from the bar was once an exterior wall, now recovered offering a soft rustic feel. You will also notice stain glass and wrought iron in the pub which was harvested from crumbling churches through out Ireland.
