Worcester (/ˈwʊstər/ WUUS-tər, locally [ˈwʊstə] ( listen)) is a city and the county seat of Worcester County, Massachusetts, United States. Named after Worcester, England, as of the 2010 Census the city's population was 181,045, making it the second most populous city in New England after Boston. Worcester is located approximately 40 miles (64 km) west of Boston, 50 miles (80 km) east of Springfield and 40 miles (64 km) north of Providence.

A fast paced diner atmosphere with lots going on. Great menu with great service to back it up. The servings are more than generous and the menu has many options.

Stopped in here with a party of 4 on a Friday night at 5:30. We got seated immediately. By 6-6:30 it was starting to fill up so I suggest getting there on the earlier side. Every staff member we talked with was extremely kind and helpful. Our waitress had the perfect balance of leaving us be and coming over when we needed her. We had a couple of apps and the calamari came with a generous portion. Each drink was deliciously made. I would highly suggest the chocolate martini for dessert! I ordered the eggplant parm which was a huge portion! Everyone at the table loved what they ordered and we were all very surprised by the pricing. It was very low for the quality and quantity! No complaints there! The interior was warm and cozy with tables that were not too close to one another. The restaurant is located off the beaten path with side street parking. I do believe I noticed they have valet parking as well. Don’t let the location scare you away. It’s totally fine and worth it! We can’t wait to go back. Great for a date night or family dinner.

If on a date this place might be pretty good. The service is a little slow. And it is tapas style which is fine but one tapa took long till the next. The drinks were nice and the place is great. The food is solid is just that you can’t order anything after your initial order other wise it takes a while.

Title pretty much summarizes everything! The bar is awesome - makes really awesome mixed drinks. I also had their special Bloody Mary - absolutely out of this world! Very nice signature rolls. I also had their sushi deluxe. I've heard a lot about this place and while was in the area decided to stop by with friends. One of few places that open til 1am - was important as we were going there after a venue. Very happy with the service. The only issue was the bathroom: there was only one and it was always locked/busy.

The idea behind One Eleven Chop House was to establish a Chicago-style steakhouse right here in Worcester. The elegance and sophistication of the decor complements some of the best-tasting steaks and chops you'll find anywhere. All of our cuts are either certified prime-grade or in the top 10% of the choice grade. And they're all expertly prepared. Choose from traditional steaks done right or less traditional favorites, such as Long Island Duck Two Ways, Sirloin Encrusted in Black Pepper with a Shallot Brandy Cream Sauce, or a Mixed Grill of Filet Mignon, Confit of Duck and Blackened Shrimp.
Visited for my birthday. Haven't been here in years but better than ever. Enjoyed a pleasant & attentive wait staff, excellently prepped food (we had oysters-on-half-shell, lovely salad w/obviously house-made blue cheese dressing, mini filet mignon w/lobster tail, braised short rib over cannellini bean puree w/greens, roasted brussel sprouts, & garlic mashed potatoes..potatoes just a bit too salty..). All cooked to 10-star perfection!
Only negative was my Southern Comfort Manhattan which for $10.75 was The Weakest & Smallest cocktail I've Ever consumed for the price! But, then again, I had already read Chophouse reviews about this major flaw.
The food can't be beat even though it's pricey. Great place for deep pockets and a nice dining experience!

We stopped here for b'fast, had about a 30 minute wait. People on line were very friendly. We met folks who drive up from Rhode Island every week to eat here. Reuben omelet was amazing, banana bread french toast, and the honey bunches of oats french toast was to die for. Also very good homemade corned beef hash. Service was very friendly. I can't wait to go back.

Really fresh seafood and it is well prepared and there are a variety of ways it is prepared. Be prepared for a long wait if you don't have a reservation. I personally had the tuna stuffed with feta and sundried tomatoes and my husband had the blackened swordfish. Both were great!

We go to O'Connors about once a month. I've never had a bad meal there and the range/type/quality of foods is remarkable.
We are not pub people so even though there is a heavy presence of the Irish Pub type crowd, you never feel uncomfortable here.
The attitude too of friendliness from all of the waiters/waitresses along with the maître de is great .
Within Worcester vicinity this is definitely a top restaurant.

Wonderful lunch choices. The blue cheese and onion quiche of the day served with side salad and bread was delicious. Next time I'll try the hearty bowl of lentil soup that my friend ordered. Be mindful of the lines and the wait for a table/seat.We were there on a Friday around noon and the place was packed. We waited over 30 minutes to have our orders brought to the table. We came back for coffee and dessert around 3:00 Pm (delicious almond tart and I love the coffee choices!) to no crowds.

We were definitely happy with prompt service and food. At lunch time it was busy but waitstaff was very attentive and no waiting. My burger was cooked perfectly which doesn't always happen at other places. The traditional soup and 1/2 sandwich item had an option to substitute the sandwich for a salad with soup. I will try that along with so many other appetizing things on the menu.
