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

After reading raving review after raving reviews, we finally visited Egan & Sons couple of weeks ago. A pleasant atmosphere and attentive wait staff but dishes we ordered were okay at best. Quite disappointed.

Beer menu is really extensive and they have a lot of great beers on tap! The only reason for a 4/5 and not 5/5 was because my wife didn't like her salad. Atmosphere is cool and it's a really nice and clean place. The menu is good and my food was really good!

Right off the 4:50 out of Penn station NYC made it an egans express. Couldn't wait to sit on the back porch order a glass of cold white. So good called friends over and an impromptu gathering with tons of beer and wine along w the best burgers and salads. Love the neighborhood pub and food is always satisfying..

This is a great local bar and restaurant that always delivers a solid meal. It has many more options than "just bar food" although you can never go wrong with a burger and beer here. The bar crowd is welcoming and the patio is a great place to have a small private event during the summer. A bonus is that... More

I have been here with my fiancé, now husband, several times. The establishment is lovely, and the restaurant's menu is great. The food has been really good too once you get it. The constant problem we have here is the service. The bar staff (and mind you that this is an Irish bar), don't quite know how to pour a... More
