Love this restaurant in Montclair. It has a little bit of everything..a full bar for meeting friends, for happy hour, after work gatherings, along with an appetizing dinner menu enjoyable to families or couples. The menu is small, not overwhelming yet offers many choices. Pricing is moderate, not inexpensive but also not crazily overpriced. The sticky toffee pudding is to... More

Egan's is a nice place to get together with friends or for a couple looking for a night out. They have a basic menu with a few "Irish" dishes thrown in to live up to their being an Irish Pub. I had the Bangers and Mash and it wasn't bad. The burger my friend had looked good. The place gets... More

We love Egans, and our family likes to go on Sun evening. Our mother in law uses a wheelchair and the staff is very helpful with us. There really isn't a bad offer on the menu- my favorite is the hanger steak or the salmon, but there is no bad choice. Great cold beer selection, nice wines, and comfortable atmosphere.

I like Egan's. It's a good bar with a great atmosphere in a great space. By and large, the staff are friendly and the drinks are good. But the food is just too expensive for what it is. I like the fish and chips and that remains my safe choice, but too many times I've been disappointed by trying something... More

4 of us went around 7pm. We started at the bar, since there was a wait, but it was less than 15 minutes.(the old " order a drink first" trick.) The place has great bones- very nice environment, and the restaurant has a parking lot on the back side of Walnut St, which is great, bc parking on Walnut is... More

I love this restaurant/bar. It is as authentic an Irish Pub as you can get in the US. The owners, Chris and Sharon Egan are incredible and take great pride in everything they do (Chris even comes complete with the Irish accent). Their food is wonderful and they offer a great selection of beer, wine and drinks.

The food is delicious here, everyone always happy when I've been. The hummus / falafel platter appetizer is really spot on, can't get enough of it (even though it's quite large). The hanger steak is my favorite, and that's coming from someone who only eats beef 1-2 times a month and has never ordered a steak anywhere by here. Shoestring... More

Love Egan's for drinks, but I've eaten there numerous times out of convenience & have been underwhelmed every time. Great atmosphere, lots of tables, but not worth staying for food.

Egans is a very dependable spot for eating and drinking. One can be sure of a large selection of beverages (there is a nice bar area if drinking is your purpose) and a consistently well-prepared meal. There are several dining areas to accommodate both large and small groups (though it can get quite busy on a Friday or Saturday night).... More

I was meeting a friend who I have not seen for a while and decided to try Egan's for lunch. In the evening the place is very busy but it was quiet at lunch. It was a beautiful day so we sat in the back patio which was very comfortable and had a nice breeze despite it being directly off... More
