    The manager was very helpful in finding my reservation and the rest of my party in a very busy restaurant. The server could not answer the question about what the best dish was in the restaurant, but warmed up a bit later.

    We were staying at the Westin, so decided to make a reservation for MJ O'Connor's, expecting just the basic comfort food and a casual dinner. I was pleasantly surprised at how AMAZING the bourbon onion grilled cheese was!!! One of the best sandwiches I've ever had (and I've had a lot) LOL. Thumbs up!!

    Food was good and a small menu keeps everything fresh. BBQ flatbread was awesome and the house burger with irish bacon was really good, but the caprese "panini" was cold and had not been pressed or grilled so it really wasn't a panini at all. The fries were fantastic... Service was miserable and I had to go up to the bar to get appetizer plates, extra napkins, and find our server (who was very busy chatting with coworkers in the service bar area the whole time) for our bill and a second drink.

    Drinks were well made and the grilled chicken sandwiches were outstanding - best sandwiches we have had in awhile. Don't be dissuaded by the fact that this restaurant is attached to a hotel - really great spot for a bit to eat before a show!

    I was very disappointed. Service was slow, can’t blame the waitress, she was very nice, but for an not very crowded place, service was slow. And the menu could really use a this decade overhaul. Drink service was the slowest. Instead of a tray with most meals on it a very nonchalant server took 3 trips to bring food for 9 ppl - 2 had soup - a bowl - a rather small bowl - 2 had flat bread - asked for a burger with no lettuce or tomato- came with lettuce and tomato - the Mac and cheese had a smoky flavour and unappealing taste. No I would not eat here again.

    MJ O’Connor’s SeaportResponded on August 17, 2021Hi Maude, I'm sorry to hear about your recent experience. What you have described is certainly not up to our hospitality standards. We missed the mark on several things here and for that, we sincerely apologize. Please know that your review has been shared with our management team, our staff, and our chef, so we can work to make the necessary service improvements. Again, our sincerest apologies. We hope you'll give us another chance in the future. Sincerely, Alexandra

    My son had the kids pasta but it was just a small bowl of noodles soaked in butter. Nothing else came with it. I had a chicken sandwich and Cesar salad. The sales was frozen and had way to much dressing. The wine was cheap. The only good thing was the service and the gluten free role.

    I will never go back. The waitress was extremely rude and did not even want to tell me what they had for dressings. She told me they didn’t have blue cheese dressing and that’s why buffalo chicken fingers weren’t on the menu. The menu online did not match the menu on open table. We had to stack our dirty plates so the waitress could finally take the plates from our table. We were never asked if we wanted dessert. Horrible service. Also if the waitress is going to smoke maybe she shouldn’t do it where the customers walk out of!

    The service was slow but that could have been due to the time of day. My mother had a pepper allergy and most of their food had pepper in it so that made it a bit of a challenge but overall the food was what you would expect at a bar. The one thing you should be aware of when coming here is that it is $16 to park in the parking garage even after the restaurant validation. It made for a pricey lunch for us as we were a party of 8 traveling in 3 cars.

    MJ O’Connor’s SeaportResponded on December 28, 2019Hi Nicole - Thank you so much for visiting and taking the time to write us a review. We apologize for the slow service and will review this with our staff on that day. Also our apologies for the parking - we'll be sure to add this information to our website.

    Despite a reservation, we were seated in a very loud and crowded bar area. After waiting at least 10 minutes, our drink order was finally taken. Another 15 minutes followed before we had to ask for our waiter to place our food order. Our waiter finally returned and yelled, "What do you want?!" at us. I eat out regularly and have never experienced such poor service - we almost left no tip.

    We wanted a pre-concert dinner in a casual setting where we could have a conversation with friends, and M.J. O’Connors was perfect for that. Just a short walk from the concert pavilion, the restaurant offers high tops in the bar area, a lively setting, regular tables around the corner from the bar, and outdoor seating as well. Although the menu is limited, there are enough choices to satisfy any taste. The pork belly appetizer was a big hit at our table, but everyone in our party enjoyed their dinners, which included the salmon, the chicken pot pie, fish and chips, and curried chicken dishes. We enjoyed being in a comfortable pub setting where we didn’t have to deal with too much noise or standing crowds. And our waitress, Sarah, was helpful and fun. We would choose this restaurant again.
