Hopping good time

Stopped in for a bite after a full day of winery tours. Food was very good and staff was friendly. This would be a fun place to kick back and watch a game ... if we weren't already so tired from our day! For the crowd we saw gathered outside the night before, this is certainly a fun hot spot... read more

The atmosphere was nice. The location is good: just off the square. The service was friendly and prompt. The food was okay: not the best, but not bad either.

We went on a Thursday night which was also trivia night. Waited about 10 minutes for a table to open, Though busy the server & kitchen were very fast. Our server was A+.

We enjoyed an early family dinner at Shenanigans on a Sunday afternoon. We were seated immediately in the upstairs dining area, and our server patiently went over some of the menu options as this was our first time here, and our children had questions. Whether you are coming for a full lunch or dinner, or just apps and drinks, there... More

It is a good place to eat. Everything I have ever had here is good. Read the fine print on the menu before ordering. I would have thought a place that calls itself an Irish Pub would know what "chips" are on a plate of "Fish & Chips". But alas no they don't, or they just want to gouge you... More

We live in Cleveland, GA so we hopped over to Dahlonega for dinner for a change. Shenanigans is located in the basement of a large house near the town square. It is both a restaurant and a pub. The atmosphere was very friendly and the decor is, well . . . . sort of collegiate with dollar bills hung all... More

Atmosphere and food below par. We were seated beside garbage cans and next to a swinging kitchen door. A table should never have been placed there. The food was beyond bland--tasteless. My husband had the grilled chicken salad; I had patty melt with onion rings. Waste of time and money. Guess the idea is to get drunk enough that you... More
