Beer Reviews from greg katz
   
Beer Quality Beer Selection Food Service Overall
So So So So So So Good So So

Establishment: Tierney's Tavern, Montclair, NJ

This is NOT a beer bar by any stretch. Since that is what this site is attempting to locate, the high marks are not deserved. The commoner liquids served in beer bottles and pint glasses are in abundance. There are a couple of beginner crafts: Guiness (the ever ubiquitous), Flying Fish, Brooklyn Lager (which I doubt they would even have a clue about the depths of brew by Garrett). Clearly they just added a couple of names that everyone knows.

Food is bar grub, nothing more. I had the pastrami sandwich which was edible. There was a burger special (bleu) on a special board which I didn't notice until after I ordered as some folk were standing in front of it, and there was no mention of it on the menu.

Some of the customers were downright rude. Multiple patrons would think nothing about banging into me while I am sitting and eating because they wanted to talk to someone else at the bar. The bar was not crowded and there was plenty of space for them to stand outside of the person they wanted to speak to. One of them wanted my napkins and reached his hand in front of me while I was eating and snatched them. I asked for the check.

Bar staff did seem reasonably attentive.

Look. I have to agree with the comments that this is clearly a let your hair down kind of place. Worn wood floors and a definite lived in appearance. If you don't really care what your drinking beer-wise, and want a place to go out with friends where no one will give you a second look for cackling at the top of your lungs, this is your place. If you want a good beer selection, and customers that exhibit some modicum of manners, I would suggest going elsewhere.
