I visited Salem, MA for Halloween 2016. I was traveling with my sister and we were looking specifically for things we'd never done in the city before. As we walked down Washington St., we noticed a sign out front of O'Neill's that listed several cocktails....including a Pumpkin Martini! WE love just about anything pumpkin flavored. It was between 11AM and... More

Disappointing. Went in to eat, was told a 40 min wait. Forty-five min later still waiting while there were several tables available. People came in behind us and sat at empty tables without going through the hostess. Was told twice by the hostess it would be "10 more minutes." We decided to leave and being nice, I informed the hostess... More

My friend and I ate lunch here recently. We had a real , live Irishwoman as our server, LOL. She was delightful. We both ordered the Shepherd's Pie, which was abundant and delicious. We ordered onion rings, which were to die for! I would recommend this as a real treat if you're in Witch Town.

If you hanker for a bit of Celtic music, a Guinness, some 'Irish Pub ' food and a chat with some friendly folk. Take your friends take the kids, grand kids, grand ma, and grand pa to O'Neills on Sunday afternoon. It is a great way to spend a few hours listening to Irish songs, heck even get up and... More

Went there on a really rainy day and they did not open on time, left customers out in the rain, which did not make my day. Once inside we were seated immediately and were able to order in a short time. Had a very limited Halloween Menu of like 5 appetizers and 5 meals which did not make for a... More

Found this gem of a restaurant on my most recent trip to Salem. Arrived around 6:00pm on a Friday night and was seated right away. Hostess and waitress were very friendly and helpful as we had a limited time to order, eat, and get to a event by 7:00pm. I ordered a crock of the Guinness Beef Stew, which was... More

The wait staff was friendly and even though our food took a while to come out, our waitress was very attentive and made sure we didn't lack anything. The food was amazing and the portions huge! The shepherd's pie rangoons were to die for!!!

We are from bar harbor Maine and you can not get a serving of lobster Mac and cheese for this price anywhere at home. This place has a very reasonable menu with variety for everyone. Not a rushed atmosphere. Comfortable seating. Exceptionally friendly waitstaff. Bar harbor should be ashamed that they can not offer such good lobster Mac and cheese.
