“Great food something for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

Waited a long time to write this review as I live in the area and eat out regularly at all the local restaurants. As with all newly opened places they had there growing pains I always had a good meal, when I could get a seat, but service was slow and it was always crowded. Now that they have a few months under there belt I believe they have worked out all there bugs and both food and service is great. Parking will forever be a problem just as it was when it was Millers. There menu has something for the whole family pizza, wings, steaks, burgers, pasta and the usual Irish fare Shepard's pie and fish&chips I've had them all and never had a bad meal. If you liked the old Millers thin crust pizza it hasn't changed they kept recipe and the chef. They also have a great selection of beers on tap that changes with the seasons. They also just got Buzztime trivia which is just a bonus when there is nothing on the 12+ TVs. The remodeling they did is fantastic there is nothing that reminds you if the old bar. I highly recommend this place.

“Interesting [good] chicken wings, pizza not up to Millers standard”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

The renovation of Millers - took a long time, but looks good. The bar is about the same, the pizza, close but not quite. Ordered three pies, two came out and I was told the third will be a few minutes because they broke a whole in it. The first two were not done enough - soggy crust, not crispy. Third was spot on. My lady had corned beef sandwich - she says average. Oh - hte wings... king of buffalo, but not quite... had a black peppery taste to them. Having said that. I liked them. Service needs work. Food slow to come out. Place was noisy and crowded on a Monday night. Will give it another try.

“Once more our go to place for pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

Maintaining good old Miller's thin crust pizza was a stroke of genius! With all the improvements and clean up that was necessary after many years of neglect, Cryan's created a great sports bar with more TVs than you can count. A great, affordable menu and many ice cold, draft and bottled beers - what's not to like. The waiters are friendly and helpful. Have gone back on three occasions, consistently good. Parking is free, but you may have to use the street out back.

“Wonderful casual place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

We watched the renovations for several months and finally stopped by. We were big fans of Cryan's in Branchburg and were sorry to see it close - we just don't like Willy McBrides as much although we still stop by from time to time.. The Cryan's Annandale location while a bit smaller has done a wonderful job in the casual food, reasonable price category. The staff is up beat and attentive. The bar has a full range of libations. The decor is very Irish pub flavor. They are family friendly. Parking in the back is your best bet.

“Significant improvement in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

This restaurant has been significantly upgraded from the restaurant that was here prior. Very good and relatively inexpensive menu. Parking in the area can be an issue as the restaurant is usually well occupied. Friendly staff. A very good option if you are in the area. A lot nicer than the cookie cutter national restaurant chains in the area. Lunch and diner visits were great. Very focused on keeping this family and friends gathering place. No hooligans.
