    We were in Norwalk just for the day visiting my daughter. We chose to go to O’Neils as there were 5 of us ranging in age from 3 to 86 and the menu online looked varied enough that we could all find something. And the restaurant did not disappoint! The food was delicious. Nothing fancy (typical of Irish pubs) but dishes were hearty and tasty and generous in portion sizes!! We enjoyed cocktails, a couple apps (get the Reuben sliders!) and authentic tasting main dishes. Our server was helpful…patient in answering questions and attentive without being overbearing. We’ll be back!

    O’Neill’s Pub is one of the best pubs I’ve been too in my years of dining experiences. It is truly one of the finest Irish pubs around. Authenticity is great. Have to go for the Guinness on tap. Every food item on the menu is crafted well and presented in a stunning manner. O’Neill’s opened when I moved to Norwalk, CT. Have enjoyed their incredible food and atmosphere since they opened!

    O’Neill’s has been one of our favorite restaurants for years and continues to be so. The food and ambience are always excellent but the real reason we love it is for the staff…always friendly, knowledgeable and fun! From the moment you are seated they make you feel like family, and that’s what a true Irish pub is all about. A particular thank you to our server, Tara, for making yet another visit to O’Neill’s a happy respite!

    We went for Mother's Day. The food was good, the atmosphere was really nice and laid back. Our service was a bit slower but this was likely due to the fact that the restaurant was likely busier than normal, however it gave us more time to spend with each other and talk, so we didn't mind. Overall a really great location with good food and great atmosphere.

    My wife and I enjoyed lunch, eating outside in a heat tent area (reason for 3-star rating for ambiance). O'Neill's was also offering inside and outdoor (too cold the day we were there). The staff and patrons were following safety requirements. Service and food were great. We had the Bangers and Mash, and the Fish and Chips, both were excellent. The Fish and Chips was one of, if not the best I've had outside of the UK and Hong Kong. The fish was hot and the breading crispy, but not too thick. The area of South Norwalk was somewhat quiet due to the dining restrictions, but we still had a nice walk after lunch.

    O'Neill's has done it all. Outdoor dining area under cover in case of rain, way roomy for our social distancing. Mandatory masks (until you are at your table) and the staff cleans tables, chairs, handles constantly. Inside brand new air filtration to clean the air constantly. Meticulous care to our safety. Nowhere do we feel this safe dining out. Curbside pickup is a breeze. Favs: juicy chicken chipotle sliders, great burgers and wings, the potato salad - never make my own again. I'll take a double: carrot turnip whip--guilty pleasure. Chicken curry is delish. Irish curry sauce on the side to drizzle over Irish potato skins, enough said!
