The food is excellent at O'Neill's and the service is very professional and good. They have converted their parking lot into a dining area along with fire pits, heaters and decor. A great place to dine!

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!

Outstanding food and service, live-music, and individual outdoor tents for tables made this the BEST dining experience we've had yet since COVID-19 hit. It was magical dining outdoors under lights and we felt very safe with all the precautions taken by management. Highly recommend!

O'Neills did a GREAT job making a safe virus environment. Very cozy with tables under open air tents. Some of the great Irish pubs furniture is outside. Felt very safe to enjoy friend time and great food.

O'Neill's Pub & Restaurant is an authentic Irish Pub, owned and run by two Irish gentlemen. The service is outstanding, the food is excellent and the ambiance is always perfect...from a quiet spot to enjoy a family dinner or business lunch to the more up tempo evenings with live music (usually Irish music) or a big game on the numerous tv's. O'Neill's is great!

I love O’Neill’s, especially their salmon dish. Never disappoints. We were seated quickly. The outdoor dining is very nice. Tables are very spread out and the service was great. There was also live music that night so that was a bonus. Parking available underground. Highly recommend.

Good food, good ambiance, meh service. This is not to take away from the waitress, who seemed to be busy covering the whole restaurant by herself. But food took a long time to arrive, an appetizer which was ordered did not come out, and there were a couple of other glitches overall on the service side.

First time here. Food and service was excellent. Generous portions, most of us took home doggy bags. Added bonus for a city restaurant was their private parking lot. Noise level was good although we were there midweek when it wasn’t crowded

Waiter was extremely good at his job. The Mac n cheese was terrible and no one could eat it (sour) taste. This is the second time I have made a reservation which they did not have. First time for (8), second time for (4).

A nice comfortable neighborhood restaurant. Even though it is most likely classified as a sports bar - it has nice space for families as well. Outdoor seating is also available in nice weather. Parking lot is a plus.
