Went to listen to the band after eating dinner. There is also a restaurant upstairs, but the bar and the band was downstairs, so that is where we were as we had already had dinner else where. It room is somewhat small, with tight seating, but the drinks were good and the band was OK, we went for the good... More

During a recent visit to Dahlonega on Valentines Day weekend, we were looking for a quick bite on a cold night. Being in a casual mood we weren't looking for anything too fancy. Stumbled on Shananigans, and was pleasantly surprised. It is a pub, and decent on at that. The selection of adult beverages was more than adequate, even a... More

Shenanigan's in Dahlonega is a great pub with great food. Atmosphere: The downstairs has a cozy pub with low, comfortable bar stools. The upstairs has sun lit dining rooms. There is an enclosed porch, heated in the winter thankfully, and an open deck that is labeled "Pet friendly". This gives you a variety of atmospheres for dining. Food: The food... More

We tried this restaurant on a Friday night, when a local musician was playing. Although the hostess seemingly couldn't find our reservation, after waiting to be seated our experience was great! Everyone at our table enjoyed their food, especially the special for the night- the buffalo grouper. Keep in mind, if you go during a concert it will be loud...... More

This place has a beer list better that the wine lists at most top line restaurants. If you want a good beer with some friends in a pub type setting, this is the place.

Someone told me this was the best food in town, but as I didn't eat at every restaurant in Dahlonega, I couldn't say. The food was pretty good, and I was really impressed they had a veggie version of their sausage dip! Seating is limited in winter, but staff was friendly enough. Only one bathroom for all users.

I like the welcome you get, and the general friendly atmosphere they foster, which results in customers interacting easily. A true pub atmosphere. The food....well, it's OK, pretty much all fattening stuff.

The food was good and service outstanding. My wife and I got the stew as and appetizer and a burger/fries and Reuben/onion rings as the entree. The Reuben was ok but the burger was great. The stew was also very good and was perfect for a cold night.
