We were in the mood for a good burger, so did a little research and decided to check out O'Connell's Pub. We had driven by this place several times on past visits on our way to The Hill, and there were always a lot of cars. If you were just driving by, you may be afraid to stop there -... More

Classic Irish pub serving the best burgers in ST. Louis for 50 + years. The food is great but the location is priceless. It is like an old fashioned Irish mob bar. He interior screams early century and beware it is dark. On a sunny Summer day, you will squint for 10 minutes after leaving but that is its charm.... More

I guess I am only giving four stars because of their fine china had degraded to paper plates, and strike three on beers. Irish in name, St. Louis in beer, but what is on their beer menu isn't in stock. So I had a burger and an ice tea. Server was appropriate for the establishment. Can't beat the $6.00 burger... More

We ate lunch here on a Friday and ordered the special...fish n chips. The kids ordered cheeseburgers from the kuds menu. All of our food was excellent. The fish had a light batter and came with french fries. We ordered the delicious onion rings too. This is a well established Irish pub and we have never been disappointed.

We've sworn off church fish fries after one too many bad ones. This is a good alternative. The service was just OK. We felt like the server was taking our order on the run and she seemed to want to be elsewhere. We had to remind her to bring us water. But it wasn't terrible service and the fish fry... More

There is a reason this place has been around since the 50s. Great atmosphere, consistent good service, and roast beef (as rare as you like) sandwiches and cheeseburgers that are nearly without parallel. Kitchen open until midnight during the week, which is great for a post-concert or post rehearsal visit. A real St. Louis place with lots of locals but... More

I went to O'Connells for a Sunday lunch with my entire family - two parents, two siblings, a nephew, my husband, and my 4 children. My husband put my 7 month old in his car seat on the floor (which we have done at multiple restaurants in St. Louis - where my parents and siblings live - and in Milwaukee,... More

I had forgotten how dark this place was. After using my cell phone light to view the menu, we were able to order. My husband and I both ordered cheeseburgers which were delicious. It took a little longer than it should have to be greeted; in fact a group of four came in after us and were served first. Also... More

Great Irish atmosphere! Friendly staff. Typical Irish pub (and we've been to Ireland and would find something like this there), except they were playing music from local station, not Irish, but no big deal to me. Small place so can get crowded fairly quickly, would be tight to maneuver through the place with a wheelchair or stroller. We were there... More

I have been here several times and always get the burger/ fries. The service was very good today and they are adding parking in the back. The restaurant is easy to get to and accessible right off the highway. Fun place!
