People want everything these days. They want 5 star food and 5 star service and then want it at a bargain. What a crock. I saw some of the mediocre reviews and had to chime in. Probably the best Roast Beef sandwich you will ever have in

After reading the reviews, I was looking for a great burger and I got an average burger. First, they don't have Bacon or Tomatoes, which I love on a burger. The inside of the place is very dark, maybe their hiding something. Overall, it

Simple and delicious. I would like to try a few other items from their menu, but I have to get the burger every time we go.

I'm a visitor to St. Louis, so I decided to give O'Connell's a try for their famous burgers and maybe complement that with an Irish spirit.

The burgers are truly very tasteful, but what made my experience is Mike - the man behind the bar and truly the best bartender I've come across in St. Louis. He knew how to treat a customer and what to suggest especially when it comes to drinks - if you're not sure what to try, just leave it to Mike.

The question now is "how will I know it's Mike?" Well, just look for the guy who looks like Sam Elliot with silver hair and mustache standing comfortably behind the bar.

Pros: Good price and excellent service (just ask for Mike)

Cons: Limited parking space

Great food, Absolutely terrible service. I used to put up with it, but now I think no burger is worth being treated like dirt.

The food is great, however, all side orders are separate. I'm still one of those people who wants an order of fries to come with their burger. The service is normally good, but can be rather slow during the busy lunch hours when many business professionals stop for lunch. Great place to stop in at the bar to have a drink.

The rare roast beef sandwiches are great and hefty. Add some HOT breaded onion rings and mushrooms for good measure. Yeah, sometimes the waitresses seem harried when crowded but the pub atmoshere and booth seating is fun. Its not Denny's, so dont expect that!

I went to O'Connell's after arriving to town two years ago. Everyone said it had great burgers. I was pleased with the great ambiance. That's were the fun stopped. The service was so bad that the whole evening was ruined. I tried again this year and was sadly reminded why I didn't want to go there again. Cold food, having to wait for condiments, sloppy presentation is not my ideal of a great place to eat!

A big blob of greasy unseasoned beef. Slap yourselves with reality and wake up!

I can't think of anywhere else I would recommend a hearty appeatite for burgers than O'Connell's, this has great atmosphere, great service and great for get togherts for parties before and after sports activities.
I don't think there is anything that I can think of that is bad if you don't like burgers they have a wide variety of other foods just as good. soups, chile etc.

The hamburgers here are fantastic, but the service leaves much to be desired. We had 2 children with us & we weren't treated well. Our waitress was rude & acted like bringing us a glass of water (having asked twice) was a serious imposition. The burgers are great though. Order takeout!!

I've been a vegetarian for over six years, but everytime I go into O'Connell's my mouth waters. The burgers smell good and my meat eating friends tell me that they're great. The fried mushrooms are by far some of the best. Although fee refills on the soda would be nice.

Nothing fancy--just the best burger for 300 miles!
Dark bar-cold beer-dark,cold beer!
The Fish & Chips on Friday nights are also superb!!
Service was very freindly, and our drinks never got close to being empty.
Who cares about value when the burgers are this good?

O'Connell's gets the prize for best burger in St. Louis. The reasonably priced Guiness on tap helps as well, not to mention the atmosphere. Seamus McDaniel's is another in the upper echelon.

We stopped for lunch after a visit to Shaw's Garden and everything was OK but the grandchildern didn't like it. I thought the food was good and the prices were reasonable.
