Our Two Cents
Astor Bar epitomizes no-nonsense. You walk in, take a seat when you can find one and get down to laughs with friends or friendly banter with Mike.
The decor is very suburban Jersey basement. Naugahyde captain’s chairs adorn the table seating and a Formica bar surface that looks like Grandma Healy’s kitchen counters on Highland Avenue make up the bar.
Taps are clean as a whistle and offer three brews — Guinness, Budweiser and Bud Light. From a visit about three years ago, I do recall all tap stock to be available by the pitcher for a great price. The cooler in back offers package goods and plenty of bottled selections are available if you are pint glass phobic.
I can’t extoll the virtues of their lunch as I have not stopped by at that time of day, but a quick search around online delivers result upon result of love for Astor’s lunches.
