Better late than never....

With this review I mean. Went to Shenanigan's for a quick bite and beer as we were walking the boards last bike week. Tried the Hawg Wings and was hooked. The four of us went back twice! Service was excellent both during the day and later when the place was packed. There was a comedy/guitarist... read more

Not seeing the thrill in this place. Average Irish menu, small portions and big prices. The bar has a large selection and its right on the boardwalk if you need the convenience of that. Too many other great restaurants in OC to blow a meal on this one.

Sorry you were a little disappointed, Lynn -- I wish we'd known you weren't impressed at the time so we could've done more to show you what we're really all about. I hope you didn't think your visit here was a waste -- we'd love to see you again sometime to show you why we've got all this hype. Thanks,... More

Three of us went in for dinner and we left happy. The waiter was excellent even though he was very busy. The place was packed. All our dinners were good with plenty to eat. Order the hawg wing appetizer, unique and very tasty.

What a find! SOOOO GOOOD! We started with the pizza fries as an appetizer and they didn't last long. You owe it to yourself to have them. Then around the table we has multiple burgers, chicken strips, chicken sandwiches ect and all were very delicious. We will definitely go back when we return to OC.

Ate there for diner - good bangers & mash and crab cake. A little too much bun on the crab cake so I took off and ate by itself because you couldn't taste it. Overall good food. Waitress forgot our coupon but no biggie

Glad to hear you guys had a good time, Jen, thanks for the review! I'm really sorry we apparently missed your coupon somehow, though. That shouldn't have happened. I'm glad you still enjoyed your meals, though, and I hope you'll let us make our mistake up to you next time. Take care, Greg - Owner More

Although I wish I could write a review about the great atmosphere and amazing food I can't because I was unable to try it. We sat there for 20 minutes waiting for someone to serve us, although a few people walked by no one stopped so we got up and left. Sucks because I really wanted to try them, they... More

Their reubens are really good! Their pizza fries were delicious! Try to visit on a Sunday or Monday night when there is a dueling piano show!
