I've got to be honest, the food was horrible. How do you mess up chicken tenders? And the drinks tasted like rubbing alcohol. The waitress was incredibly kind in getting us another one but even that one tasted horrible. Thinking it was more of a...More

I've been to plenty of "Irish Pubs" in my day, in the U.S., Germany, Sweden, and, yes, even Ireland! This was the most authentic of all Irish Pubs in America I have ever visited. The décor, the menu choices, and the food could cause one...More

I was here for a late night meal after a work event with a group of people. There was live music when we were there, which was nice, but it made it difficult to converse over the music. The menu offers a large variety. Most...More

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.

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.
