Went here for a special occasion to get a casual bite to eat. The food was delicious and the prices were very reasonable. The service was great and the atmosphere was easy going yet just busy enough to feel like it was a popular spot. Highly Recommend!
Everything was great!
Food was great but very over priced
Good food, good service, cold beer
Nothing special here. There weren't many tables occupied and the service was still very slow. I ordered the beef stew and a black and tan. The stew was fine,but the beer tasted watered down. Whatever stout and lager they're using, they're not good. There are a number of restaurants in the area that are similarly priced. I'd try one of the others.
Good food for a quick bite to eat
It was good food but server was not responsive. Took so long to get things. She’d disappear for 20 min at a time. Somehow dessert took longer than dinner to arrive.
MJ O'Connor's was just that - an Irish pub. Food was good, service decent, but not really a date night vibe. My husband and I made the mistake of trying it out for a date, not realizing it was an Irish pub - whoops! Other than that, we did enjoy the food we got (nachos, clam chowder, beef stew, and flatbread).
Dined here with my husband and two kids, ages 18 and 20. We all agreed the chicken tenders were the best we've ever had.
Went before a show at the park plaza. Convenient location and nice decor inside. Food was typical Irish pub style which worked well with the kids (18,16,11). A little pricey but have to expect that in back bay Boston
The food was good and like the location. Made reservations and was seated right away.
Typical bar food. Food is ok not bad not great. Waitress was good but not there towards the end when we needed out bill. There were some very loud people yelling to speak to each other.
The restaurant had a very comfortable vibe to it. We were able to converse without shouting at each other, but there was a quality hum-drum from the other guests.
Probably not completely authentic irish, but still a great restaurant.
Food was very good, a little pricey, but very good! Ambiance is nice and the service was good too! Friendly and warm staff and environment.
2nd time here and the food was once again delicious. Love the ambiance with the old beams and Irish charm. Perfect spot to hit before a show. Reservation worked very well as we got right in were eating within 15 minutes of arrival.
Second visit to MJO's in a week and it was like a sketch from monty python, everything we asked for on the menu was met by "it's off , we have run out" We eventually settled for the Irish stew, which was thankfully still on. It was very nice but could have done with more lumps of beef in it . The wait staff were courteous and apologetic and the lack of menu didn't ruin the night but the management need to ask themselves hard questions as to why they allowed the food to run out.If this had been our first visit, it probably would have been our last but having been before I know they can do better
Staying at Boston Park Plaza, and attending Huntington Theater that evening, we had a reservation. Seated in a corner without a waitress for 15 minutes, when a hipper couple sat next to us, the waitress immediately came over to them. We left and went across the street to Maggiano's, without a reservation. They were polite and accommodating. The food and service were exceptional. That's where we will eat again and again.
Would never recommend MJ O'Connors. I had to rate food, service and ambiance, but there wasn't any.
Fast service, perhaps a little too fast as they served our mains before we had finished our starters, although I now understand this is a trait in all the bar dining in Boston. Lesson learnt don't order starters, other lessons learnt are if you want another beer or a desert ask for it early or they will assume you have finished and present the bill. Overall a good,if a little rushed experience
Very good food in relaxed surroundings..Try the Salmon and Lobster Special!
Due to its location I thought it would have been a little more upscale. Looked very tired. Burger was good however and so was so was the beers.
