Readers Pick Best Spot to Celebrate St. Patrick's Day

Tight vote between nearby bars


Readers had a tough time deciding the best spot in the area for celebrating St. Patrick's Day.

But, after a week-long vote, in Montclair garnered a first place win—but by only a few votes.

Accepting cash only, Tierney's has always wanted to be known as the place "where friends meet." The no-frills establishment turns out surprisingly excellent burgers and onion rings and offers a vast assortment of domestic and imported beer, wine, and liquor.

The bar features HD televisions and a dart board, in addition to hosting trivia nights and regularly scheduled musical performances.

Coming in a very close second in our Patch poll was the in Caldwell. And not too far behind the Cloverleaf was in Verona.

Founded in 1933 by the current owner's grandfather, the Cloverleaf has become an institution with a history as rich as its menu. Renowned for its vast beer selection, the Cloverleaf boasts tasty American cuisine. Regular customers recommend checking out the all-you-can-eat Sunday brunch buffet.

So celebrate the luck o' the Irish this weekend at one of these top spots and tell us all about it in the comments section below.

Tierney's is located at 136-138 Valley Road in Montclair.

The Cloverleaf is located at 395 Bloomfield Avenue in Caldwell.

O'Neils Restaurant and Pub is located at 706 Bloomfield Avenue in Verona.

Congrats to Tierney's, Cloverleaf, and O'Neils and thanks to everyone who voted!
