First time visitors to this restaurant.

Great food and service. Good selection and choices of food tied into the Irish culture. Only complaint, Irish music being played would have helped with the atmosphere.

French dip sandwich was good. Fish and chips were just ok. The orange cream frozen cocktail could of been a lot better. The ice tasted old and you couldn't taste any alcohol. The air conditioner vents were dripping water on us and the tables, so we had to move to another table. Our food came quick and the waitresses were... More

Wonderful service and excellent food! So many menu options it was hard to chose just one, thankfully there were four of us and sampling each others helped!

I have to admit, I've never eaten here. I have however had many drinks here over the years. I've also danced, sang, and gotten pretty rowdy (in a good way) with the Irish groups that have performing live. It's a fun place to go and it's right on the boardwalk. Go. Have a Guinness. You'll enjoy it.

After spending the day, we decided to stay on the boardwalk for an early dinner. We decided on Shenanigans because of the outside seating right on the boardwalk. We started with drinks; the Irish beer was good but the frozen creamsicle was horrible - way to sweet and not even made from scratch. The server warned me that all of... More

Hey Diane, thanks for the feedback. I understand if the frozen drinks weren't to your taste, but I'm glad we were able to get you something you liked instead. That said, I'm especially sorry you weren't a fan of our food. Normally we only get compliments on our cooking, so I think you happened to be here on an off-night.... More

Nice little pub/grille on boardwalk. Fish and chips are decent, and the kids love the pizza fries. Have always had good service and decent prices.

We come to Shenanigan's every summer when we do our annual OC family vacation. It's an easy, fun walk to the restaurant and we like to sit outside, under the cover, for a great view of the beach and people watching. Shenanigan's has a great beer selection and typical pub food. They also hire attentive and friendly staff. With clean... More

We ordered food at the Pub it was okay nothing to exceptional!!!! It was a little pricy but what do you expect on the boardwalk? The bar was pretty good, but then again nothing really stood out to make it absolutely something to remember! I would visit again, but they need to make something memorable out of it.
