Eagans is a nice bar with a menu that is better than most bars. The orzo salad is delicious and filling if you add a protein. Burgers are good here too as well are most of the appetizers. Professional crowd for the most part.

Egan's is a lot of fun, and great in the summer because you can stay outside. It does get packed though and it can be hard to move around. The back porch area gets really packed as well. If you are looking for a seat good luck! The other thing that could be good or bad depending on the person... More

Very good and knowledgable bar tender and the food plus his beer recommendations were spot on. Beer selection, both draft and bottle very good. Well worth a visit.

Elegant setting with extensive woodwork and original paintings on the walls. Extensive beer selection of craft and specialty beers. Large menu selection from pizza through fresh fish and meat choices. Wait staff was attentive and helpful with suggestions. Worth a visit.

Bad food at a high price. Our tip should have been when we saw full plates going back to the kitchen. Montclair has so many good restaurants - this one is not one of them!

Recently enjoyed dinner with my family and a few friends. Wait staff was knowledgable and courteous. Menu was varied offering standard fare, some Irish entrees and Mediterranean ones also. I enjoyed the Falafel platter. Others enjoyed the salmon, steak, pork chop and buffalo chicken sandwich. Everyone enjoyed their food and the portions were large. Our waiter went next door (adjoining... More

I'm from out of town and met friends in Montclair to see a movie. Egan's is a two minute drive from the movie theater and they have their own parking lot - a plus in a town where parking is metered or limited in time and space. The food is quite good for pub food. There is a large list... More

Quite a following and crowd. But I think it's overrated and overpriced. Food mediocre at best. But if you want a bar scene crowd in this area, it's probably a good bet.

Was there twice in one week. Had the fish and chips but instead of chips asked for mashed potatoes. Second visit had the Cobb Salad. Joe was our server both nights and remembered us. He was great. Restaurant has a great atmosphere and deck in the back. Look forward to going back.
