Shenanigans was already established when I first visited in 1978. It's still "discovered" every year by a new group of summer visitors. There's nothing special about it other than it's a good place for hair of the dog on the day after, or to visit the night before.

Hi Stephen! Thank you for the review. Shenanigan's was established in 1988 but it was an Irish Pub called "McGee's" before we moved in. I'd like to think we offer something special to our customers as we try to create an one of a kind experience; with a creative food and drink menu, authentic Irish decor, live Irish music, and...

We enjoyed their Shepard's Pie which went great with a nice Amstel Light beer! The atmosphere is great and enjoyed the sea of green! Will definitely go again!

Wait staff overlooked us for a while, but once they realized the error, all was good. (It appeared training was in progress). My girlfriend was disappointed to find one of their signature drinks was on the online menu but not available once we got there. However, our server talked to the bartender and had one made up from scratch, which... More

Our family had dinner at shenanigans last night. The service was great and it had a nice atmosphere with Irish music in the background. Several people had the fish and chips and said it was the best they'd had. Crab Mac and cheese and guiness Sheppard's pie was also great.

We go to Shenanigans every year when we go to the beach. I can't say enough good things - the service is amazing, the food is phenomenal, and the price is reasonable for what you get. This is a family staple for us!

The food and service here was pretty good. We ordered soft shelled crabs, fish and chips, and a grilled cheese. The kids menu offers a lot of variety, even things for picky eaters. The adult menu had something for everyone. The food was served hot and fresh and didn't take long. My negative comments are the water tasted funny, the... More
