Veggies were frozen and some of the dishes lacked seasoning.

I would recommend that my friends and family do NOT go to this restaurant. The food was possibly the worst I've had in years. I would stick to pub food and making it good -- burgers, sandwiches, fish and chips-- and take every expensive entree off the menu. We had the beef rollatini and it was terrible, everything was messy and dry and the mashed potatoes were inedible because they were oversalted and gummy. I was put off by the salad dressing (bleu cheese), and had a nasty stomachache after I went home from the dressing as well as what tasted like burned frying oil on my fish & chips. Soda was flat. I could say much more, but overall I was very disappointed and will not be returning.

From the owner to the busboys, the staff at Cryan's is very friendly.

We had a very enjoyable time and will likely go back to try some other menu options next time we are in town for a performance.

Prime rib was a bit disappointing but would be willing to try something else with a coupon. Enjoyed the $5 pitchers of coors on Sundays.

From Our Editors

Mention the Cryan family to South Orange locals and they'll probably tell you stories. They'll talk about the sons who've worked as chiefs of the local police and fire departments, the father who emigrated from Ireland in the '40s, and the lively parties held at Cryan's Beef & Ale House. Captained by the youngest son, Jimmy, the 30-year-old local landmark is the last of the 30 pubs and eateries the family owned throughout Jersey.

An Irish flag waves outside the cheerful Celtic storefront, beckoning passersby in for some beer and Irish pub classics. Inside, a St. Patrick statue smiles down on rows of cushy green booths, where diners wrap their hands around corned beef sandwiches and hearty Angus beef burgers. Among regular patrons are students from the nearby Seton Hall University and a woman named Carol, who has eaten there every night since 1982. Throughout the week, the restaurant plays host to lively events, from spirited DJ college nights to traditional Irish music shows.
