Did you stop in this weekend, Stone? We were running our food and drink specials the whole weekend, with our most expensive beer running $5 (most were around $2.50). Either way, hope to see you soon. Have a great week, Greg - Owner More

We decided to eat inside because we needed a break from the heat. They have good burgers, cold beer and an awesome appetizer called hawg wings. They are like little pork chops with a sweet thai chile sauce. Nice informal stop.

I spent the summer working in Ocean City and really craved some home cooked proper food, Shenanigans didn't disappoint! The food was lovely! It would have been nice to see a few Irish servers working there though as there are so many who go to Ocean City to work for the summer, would have felt a bit more authentic. There... More

Based on trip advisor reviews we went here and were not dissapointed. They took our reservation of 12 people inadvance, seated us right away. Our waitress was Irish and we had a nice conversation with her about her working in OC for the summer. We had exceptionally service and the atmosphere was great. Great for large parties with children.

We stopped by Shenanigan's on the day of a parade on the OC boardwalk hoping for a good spot to hang out & watch the parade. Our waitress, Kasie, was very accomodating. She recommended a great rum punch drink and we had some appetizers. The fruit/cheese plate is delicious and we also had an appetizer that had hummus and bean... More

I was excited to see shepherd's pie on the menu, as this is not something found every day (as simple as it is). When I received it, the mashed potatoes were not smooth, the peas and carrots had no flavor, and worst of all, the meat was in chunks (and lots of fat on the chunks), like beef stew. I... More

With that said, I'm disappointed that you did not fully enjoy your food. We very rarely get complaints about our food, this dish in particular,... More

In late afternoon on Friday, we decided to stop and eat at Shenanigans. We came from the boardwalk and we were seated right away outside. The atmosphere in the outdoor was very nice. You can see the boardwalk and beach, enjoy the weather. Definitely a big plus for Shenanigans and a big reason why me and my wife stopped in.... More
