Lovely discovery today walking in SouthMelbourne. Beautiful sunny day so sat outside this lovely old pub. Ordered the lamb belly and hand cut chips and both were wonderful. All the meals coming out also looked delicious. Inside the pub was lovely too. Will definitely eat here again

So disappointed how this venue has changed. We have been here on many occasions not so recently we thought it was a go to for good food great staff and atmosphere. How things change. Manly the menu. Menu not clear what your ordering. So went for a chicken pie with vegetables. I could have cooked better at home plus my side vegetables would have been apt least warm not cold. Won't be back unless menu changes to something the average person knows what there reading. Staff also couldn't answer my questions. So disappointed. We used to love this venue.

Ordered the $25 steak special on a Tuesday evening. It was ordered medium rare but it was closer to medium. A little light on the chips and the salad could have been better with a bit of dressing or pickled onions for acidity. The offer of different types of mustards was a nice touch though.

Still a nice pub to have beers outdoors when the weather is nice ??

Menu in the dining room is on the pricey side, lovely service. Steak was average but the trout was delicious! The pub does have a $25 steak night on Tuesday.

Its clean, staff are well presented and polite, good range of Tap Beer (Always on my go to list), but there was just a couple of things that made it a "Just Ok" outing. 1. Music was way to loud for a Dinner setting and I felt like the Genre was more about what the staff were currently into rather than the more mature crowd / patrons would have liked. And 2. I ordered a "Popular Dish" from the online menu, a Crumbed Veal Snitz with Parmesan sprinkled on top. It was as expected but nothing to right home about. Sadly the coleslaw that came with the dish was salty as hell and pretty soggy. I was really looking forward to some lemony crunch to compliment veal. All that said, you can tell they genuinely care and are trying to be the best around. I think my 4 stars was due to the manager being very complimentary otherwise it would have been a 3 stars experience.

Relaxed atmosphere. Lovely bar people who knew their drinks.. had dinner and Lachie (lauchlan?) looked after us. 6 of us ate. Good food but the salads needed something more. I found the beetroot Salad too salty. Check the pics.

Nice quiet pub off the main streets of South Melbourne. Enjoyed the ambience outside and the historical feel inside. Food and cocktails were good. Really enjoyed the three cheese croquettes. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Didn't realise the salad leaves would be so bitter even though the menu did mention it, so I put the leaves to the side. I love beetroot so I still enjoyed it.

Very clean pint of Guinness - just lacking a bit of a bigger head. Great pub, will be back.

3.5 ?? Had dinner at O'Connells Hotel with the family. The kids menu had quite a good few options and comes with icecream. We are here for steaks and there are about 4-5 menu options for that.

We had some entrees to share, a tuna cru and scallops.

The tuna cru supposedly had caviar, olive crumbs, tomatoes and green beans. Caviar and olive crumbs nowhere to be seen, instead, we got cubes of potato ?the dish was overall very bland, and there is no texture to it, I don't even know whether this is tuna since it's white?!

Scallops w black pudding and cauliflower cream was better, however the scallop for some reason left a weird taste in my mouth.

hubby and I had eye fillet, both was nice enough, red wine jus served on the side, a small pile of hand cut fries. It's good, although my medium rare is a touch overdone, hubby's one is perfect.

Kiddos ordered steak and fish and chips. Just beware kiddo found a bone in the fish, the kid is good w eating fish with bones but parents might need to be a bit careful with young kids. The other steak was fine and I love it how both came with lettuce to balance out the fries.

Overall, a bit disappointed and won't be coming back again.

Nice bar and restaurant in the neighborhood. Some oysters had slight fishy taste to it. Overall, soft and plump. Fish and chips was delicious. Batter was just enough thickness, fish was fresh. Hostess were attentive. The lack of one star was just the oysters. Will recommend to visit for sure.

Food was good, service very poor. Not sure we got all of our wine, why do they take it away? Expensive for what it is, pub food!

Great service, we had the 1.4kg tomahawk steak between 3 people. MUST TRY! The steak was very well cooked and came with 4 sauces. Sauces could do with a bit more variety or choice, something with mushroom perhaps? Decent wine selection, the portion size of the fried squid dish was lacking. Overall a good experience and will be back to try the other steaks.

Gnochhi for mains was tasteless and mushy. The duck was beautifully presented but unfortunately was bland. There was ABSOLUTELY NO SEASONING used for both meals when cooking. There is something called 'SALT', please consider using it as it will go a long way in adding flavour to the not so cheap meals you serve to your customers in the fine dining section of your pub.
NO! We did not enjoy our meal.

We went for dinner a couple of nights ago, after not having been for a good few years and it was disappointing. Our entrees were so-so, (squid and croquettes), but my main (gnocchi) was really disappointingly tasteless ad stodgy. I kept waiting for flavour to kick in but that didn't come. My partner was happy enough with his veal but I really didn't enjoy mine at all. The side order of pumpkin was good though, tasty and worth ordering. The dessert we shared (peanut-butter parfait) was pointless again with no real flavour and it just didn't come together in the glass it came in. Coffee however was quite good.

O'Connell's you did it again! Awesome night had by all. There were 8 of us having a business dinner. A real mixed bag including 2 American colleagues. Our eyes may have been bigger than our bellies but the Lamb Shoulder to share melted in your mouth. The food was superb thanks chef. Paul and Pauly, thanks for looking after us so well. A top performer every time. I'll be back soon.
