A great place for lunch or dinner. We love the atmosphere and the beer selection. The wings are amazing! Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Enjoyed our experience there.

Went for lunch and order salads which were very good. The service was spotty. Nice family atmosphere and will give a try again.

I would have given this restaurant a 5 out of 5 but the waitress was not good at all. The food was delicious but it took over 10 minutes for her to take our drink order (no water given) and then it took over 15 minutes to get the check. We actually had to ask the hostess to bring it... More

I am a regular here.i am not a nightly customer but when I go out to dinner in town this is always top of my list. The hangar steak is great and so is the salmon. The service is inconsistent - mostly above average but it can get crowded. Lovely outside dining space.

We had booked the small function room as we were in a larger party. There were 8 of us and this was just the right space for such an event. Private enough to make us feel secluded but in the action too with the open door so that one got an impression of the buzzing atmosphere outside in the bar.... More

Found this place by accident on a Friday afternoon around 3:00pm. Nicely decorated, good pub atmosphere, with a large parking lot. Wife, myself, son & daughter had a late lunch after my son's match ceremony from medical school. Service was a little slow, but our waitress was friendly & we enjoyed ourselves. Typical pub food, salads, sandwiches & burgers, pot... More

Pretty restaurant but the host and hostesses are not friendly nor welcoming. Dined on a beautiful Saturday night and expected there would be a wait. They do not take reservations. We were told approximately 45 minutes, fair enough. To have to wait an hour and ten minutes and for the hostesses to be rude when we checked on status was... More

Egan's is a local hangout with fantastic food and an extensive selection of amazing beers. The salmon is especially good and all the food is fresh and cooked beautifully. They even have gluten free pizza at the bar! Come to watch a game on TV or grab a drink. It gets pretty noisy, but the terrace in the back is... More
