Opened in 1936, McGovern’s Tavern is one of the oldest Irish Pubs in New Jersey. It started with the idea of having a place where the Irish community could socialize and partake in some Irish music and dancing. It quickly became an institution. Today you won’t find a more eclectic mix of individuals sharing a pint and a laugh together at the end of a long day at work or school. Whether you work in the area, are going to school here or are just visiting, you’re sure to feel at home here, and we look forward to seeing you. “fáilte roimh chách!” or in Irish, “all are welcome!”
From mouthwatering appetizers, amazing wings and burgers or the best club sandwich you will ever have, McGovern’s Tavern has something for everyone. Offering a full menu for both lunch and dinner as well as a late night bar menu. It is the perfect stop after a long day at work, studying or before an event at the nearby Prudential Center or the NJPAC.
With a full bar, 12 taps and a carefully selected offering of bottled craft beer, McGovern’s Tavern has it all. We also offer seasonal drink and shot specials, a chilled Fireball Shot Dispenser, and the best pint of Guinness in town.
