Good food, great bar scene

Good food though a bit pricey. Make sure you ask process for daily specials - they are VERY high and waiter doesn't tell you unless you ask. Main entrance is not on Walnut but from parking lot in rear of restaurant. Outdoor seating in warm weather by parking lot makes for more tables - which is... read more

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

Egans is a great spot. One of the more popular bars in the area. It can get very loud and crowded on Friday and Saturday noce but it's a blast. I think it's the best bar in Montclair hands down.

Beautiful atmosphere, great selection of beer and spirits, a good selection of terrific food and friendly service. It gets busy, but is the very best Gastropub in the region. When you want more than Tierney's the areas best basic tavern experience and it's amazing cheeseburger, Egans is the place to go.

Going any day of the week besides Friday or Saturday is your best bet. Good burgers with fantastic fries. On the lighter side are some very good salads. Portions are generous and staff is very friendly.

Egan's is a local eatery and bar that has an upscale feel with an outstanding menu sprinkled with traditional Irish fare. One of their owners, hailing from the Emerald Isle, and his co-owner manage a tight ship with excellent service and always keeps the menu up to date such as recently adding a brick-oven pizza bar. The feel of this... More

Egan & Sons West Orange, a cornerstone of West Orange's downtown revitalization, is a modern take on the classic Irish pub with warm maple wood accents and a dimly lit interior. It's a fun place for a drink or a meal. The food, mostly Irish-bar fare, is great all around. The highlight for me are Egan's own signature brews -... More

Sliders to oysters, it's all good. Recently parking in the area, snow or no snow, can prove to be impossible.
