The night we were there, the wait
was an hour or more. We had reservations and were seated right away. It seemed as though they were not prepared for a large crowd. The wait was long, menu kind of limited. I think you are better off with burgers, or sandwiches. Fries were cold, steak tips chewy. The atmosphere was lively and comfortable, the waitress was pleasant. I think the food could be better. A good spot to meet for drinks."

I ordered the curry chicken plate
which was very tasty but the rice that came with it was a big sticky lump. My wife order her steak cooked medium and what she got was well done."

Nice atmosphere, food was very
good. I don't like to book reservations through third party, it creates a distance/ cold feeling. Waitress was great although we think she was the only one working. We had reservations so the wait wasn't bad, 15 mins. Those without had to wait 20 mins, or more in an empty restaurant. There were over ten empty tables. Most of these people left and these seats went unfilled. I understand there were lots of reservations that may not have shown."

Drinks were overpriced - the St.
Thomas, a rum drink, was $12. Food is good, not great, but we mostly had sandwiches"

Went here with a group of friends
for a quick bite and cocktails. All of us (5) thoroughly enjoyed our food. Pastrami sandwich (with sweet potato fries) was really good. My friends who the steak tips also gave them thumbs up."

I dined there twice in 4 days
while I was attending a conference at BCEC. The black bean burger and mac-n-cheese were both very good. My daughter enjoyed her sliders. The only negative - the sweet potato fries were soggy more than crispy."

all good, see above but
dissapointed in the billing as a waterfront restaurant. no water to be seen anywhere or near by. scene was of summer st or convention ctr."

Our experience at O'Connors was
really great - we are family and hadn't seen each other in a long time - a lot of conversation, picture sharing, laughs - and Myra, our waitress, was very attentive, personable - excellent - we were wishing she could join us!!!!"

The corned beef special was
delicious. I had the Salmon. The only disappointment was that the menu said plantains, but the were thin strips of fried plantain chips, not whole plantains fried, which was I expected. Great selection of beer. Service was friendly."

Had the corned beef dinner. Large
portion and very tasty."

Thanks for a great meeting spot,
flexibility from seating manger, and beverage/food selections! every one thought it was great"

I ate here for a dinner meeting
and had the veggie burger. Very delicious and not dry like most black bean based burgers. I also came here the day before for lunch. I had a grilled chicken sandwich with goat cheese and roasted peppers. It was great and very filling. Next time I am in Boston I will be sure to stop by."
Dined on 1/31/2014
All of our food was excellent. You
must try the Guinness onion soup - it was to die for! I had the steak tip salad and my wife had the salmon . Both were cooked as ordered and delicious. My main complaint was with the waitress - she never brought us bread until we asked for it twice. When she came by after our meals were served we needed a few things - every time we asked for something she started to run away - we had to say'excuse me - we need something else'. We had to do that twice - very frustrating! The other thing that bugged me was that I had 2 'Beers of the Month' they were 22oz. drafts of Harpoon. The beer was great but the price was not - a whopping $9 each."

We decided to come here because we
were going to the comedy show next door. Wasn't anticipating anything to great but was pleasantly surprised! The bloodymarys were delicious! I had the chicken curry which was really good and the burgers looked great too. We were very happy with our meals."
Dined on 1/25/2014
Very nice decor. Great location
next to the comedy club. We were able to enjoy everything in the same building without stepping out into the freezing cold. The dining is slightly separated from the bar, which is nice. The bar had an ample number of pub tables. The food was very good. The drinks were a little on the small side."

This place is billed as an Irish
Pub, but I fell in love with the Chicken Curry! My hubby enjoyed the twist on meatloaf! To top it off, the chef had made a special strawberry shortcake for dessert! All sauces and dressings made on site! Everything was fresh, service was quick and friendly and the location is right by a T stop in a scenic area of Boston! Just beautiful. Plus it's right next to a comedy club so it makes for a great night out!"

We had a group of 7 people. The
food was delicious. Everyone got something different from salads to fish to meatloaf and everything was great! The only complaint was that we made a reservation for MJ O'Connor's but they were re-finishing the floors, so we had to eat in Citi Bar which is next door and much smaller. We really enjoy MJ's atmosphere and we love the Irish feel and decor. The menu was the same, as they share the same kitchen, but it was a little disappointing that when we booked the reservation we weren't notified that the restaurant would be under renovations. The music was also a little too loud and not-family friendly. We asked them to change the channel for us. Overall if you're looking for great, affordable food - Go here!"

Good food, decent list of beers on
tap. nice, new design. would go again."

Visited M.J. O'Connors about 6
months ago and had a very good experiance. Waitress then was very helpful accomodating a special order. Tried to order the same thing this time, and waitress refused to consider it. She told me that absolutely couldn't be true and I had to be wrong, then came back to say again I had to be wrong. Not accomodating the request is fine, but the attitude of "I'll prove that you're wrong" is unacceptable. Food was only fair. My suggestion - try another of the restaurants in Seaport area!"

It's loud.. But the food is
decent, prices are reasonable for in a city. If you are staying in the Westin hotel it is right in the lobby."
Dined on 11/15/2013
We chose MJ'S as a site for
meeting with fourteen family members. There was no one else in the restaurant, just outside as it was fairly early so we were not surprised by the lack of patrons. Disappointingly, the food was not up to our expectations. Our waitress was superb. Sahar did a great job! She is to be commended.The meals were brought timely, but six of us did not enjoy our dinners. The children did not voice displeasure. However, they did not eat all of their food. Although it was a convenient place to meet, I don't think we'd go back."

The chowder here is excellent, but
the rest of the food was average and a bit overpriced for average. There was a private party on the patio so the outdoor seating was not available on a Saturday night, which was a disappointment. The service was excellent, however. Those hoping to get a taste of the real Boston will not find it here. Try Devlins in Brighton instead."
Dined on 7/13/2013
first time there and would
definitely go back if in that area of the city again"
Dined on 6/21/2013
Multiple business meetings were
held at the location. The service was great and food was outstanding. I would recommend the clam chowder! Had all lunch meetings but seemed a great place for bar scene later."
Dined on 6/4/2013
The service wasn't great, the
server ignored us half the time. The food could have been better. Good pub food. The draught beer lost was also a little disappointing. Would have liked more local breweries."
Dined on 4/13/2013
M.J. O'Connors is your typical
Irish bar look, but the menu has a certain twist to it. The food options are quite eclectic and very good. We went around 8pm on a Monday night, so it was a quiet atmosphere. Service was as it should be: friendly, polite, and attentive."
Dined on 1/28/2013
The beer selection was really good
- a great mix of American and UK beers. My husband had a sirloin on top of cibatta bread with sauteed onions and gravy. The steak was cooked perfectly and the entire dish was very good. I had a portebella mushroom sandwich: Portebella roasted in Balsamic vinegar, fresh mozerella cheese, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, spinach, and chipotle mayo on cibatta. It was outstanding! For dessert, we had the Boston Cream Pie (HUGE helping!) and the Creme Brulee. Both were excellent! Total for the meal (two beers, two entrees, and two desserts) was a little over $60. I will be back!"
Dined on 9/21/2012
Although we had a reservation, the
hostess seemed confused and we had to wait a few minutes to be seated. Once seated, we were forgotten about for over ten minutes so we had to walk around the restaurant to find a server to take our order. Once we did that, everything went smoothly. This is a typical, Irish Pub with the menu, food, and atmosphere that you would expect - good Guinness, burgers, fish & chips, etc."

Great for a hotel restaurant!
Service on the 4th of July was great!"

Great food! The hostesses did not
know what they were doing, though. But overall, the service was good and the food was good!"

As a descendent of Ireland, it was
nice to be exposed to Irish food again. It reminded me of our last trip to Ireland. Great food."

Service left a lot to be desired.
You should NEVER feel you are imposing on a waitress to ask for another round, or to clear app plates, etc."
Dined on 5/19/2012
Food is decent,not great, but the
wait staff is courteous and efficient, making this a good place for a business lunch."

The folks at MJ O'Connors were
just wonderful. The were very accommodating to our party's special requirements and requests which made for a terrific family birthday celebration. The food was very good and the service was perfect!"
Dined on 3/25/2012
Nice setting and the staff was
accomodating. Good beer selection. Food was uninspired; I know it is suppose to be Irish fare but the food was comparable to a 99 Restaurant."
