Typical british/Irish pub menu. Very fresh. Homemade beer in-house. Great service. Great for families and children. Vibrant bar scene.

Great big bar. Noisy restaurant. Very attentive wait staff and the food is okay -- not great. Try the sliders, however, they are delicious.

Great bar scene. Delicious food. Fantastic drinks. Excellent service. Friendly staff and bartenders. Be prepared for a shock when the bill arrives.

I went here for a business lunch with the team I work with and being Birtish, was very happy to find the menu to be very accommodating for me. It was a nice change to step out of the traditional American food chains and get some real home cooked type foods. I had the bangers and mash with onion gravy... More

Good place for a date, drinks with friends, or dinner. There are hidden gems on the menu like the Moroccan grill appetizer that's easily an entree. The wings are the best in town. My friend ate one off the floor (gross, I know) after he dropped it because they're too good to waste.

Whether it's the engaging but efficient bar staff, the friendly wait staff or the menu simply jam packed with excellent dishes that don't try to be too fussy but always deliver .. Egan and Sons gets it right every time.

Enjoy for the people watching, nice atmosphere. Food is decent, but not a driver for the destination. The patio is wonderful! We enjoy coming on a weekend afternoon, enjoying a frosty cold one after chores, perhaps a nibble, and relaxing. Entertaining in the evenings, draws a diverse multi-generational clientele

I needed a change from diners & the usual haunts. A yen for corned beef & cabbage? Not at $22! The Traditional Fish & Chips at $18 was a little high but very good. I expected more of the fries though! At the same price, my friend enjoyed the lighter faire, Lump Crab Meat. The menu of limited choices seemed... More
