Ayden was very personable and helpful with suggestion on their micro brew beer and the food was delicious. There is also an upscale restaurant and an very nice outdoor area.

My husband and I love this place! We often go there, any time of the year. I've had most of their main dishes, and continue to try something new each time I go. Last Friday I had the arugula salad with orzo, walnuts, cranberries, and goat cheese, which was delicious! They also offer specials which are not listed on the... More

My boyfriend and I went in for some appetizers and drinks, at first the bartender was attentive to our needs (we were the only ones there) then a few young women came in and he then could no longer be bothered with us, it was hard to get his attention to put our food order in and to get a... More

First time dining at the West Orange location. Pleasantly surprised by the traditional decor leaning towards high end. The restaurant location (close to a busy junction on a narrow road) suggests a restaurant of less appeal but the service is wonderful and they have parking across the street. Food was delicious and atmosphere was vibrant.

We started off with appetizers - the nachos were a little plain but plenty of choices to spice them up. Portions were plentiful, nice presentation- most importantly, tasted good. Service could've been better but was decent.

I've been to the Egan and Sons in Montclair and I really like that location. I figured I'd give this one a try seeing as it should be similar. There's easy parking across the street, which is nice, and there's plenty of seating inside, despite being a small venue. I came here with some friends for happy hour and their... More

Have had several visits here and was always pleased. It's more or less your standard pub selections (with brick oven pizzas thrown in for a nice change) but better than average quality here. But what impressed me most is the service. The staff is always friendly and welcoming. In particular, on our visit last night, our server Miguel was just... More

Egans and Sons is a really good find for those who seek pub food, great atmosphere and solid beer selections, with good service. In West Orange on business, I decided to try Egans and sons, based on some good Trip Advisor comments. At first glance, from the street, I was unsure of the quality of my choice, but, once inside,...

I've been to the Egan's in Montclair, but this was my first visit to the smaller-scale and more limited menu West Orange location. The interior is handsome with a lively bar section in the front with high-top tables for groups of friends. The back is a bit quieter with a mix of booths & tables. The food choices have quaint...
