Stopped by this past Sunday during the holiday weekend. My friend and I had a great time. One of the bartenders Jared did a trick flipping a full beer and had it land on his hand which was cool. The other bartender was Evan was also very friendly. Do yourself a favor and stop by Shenanigans to have a drink... More

Always a great place to stop and have lunch and a drink. People watching on the boardwalk is a free attraction when dining here. Food is always consistent and the staff is friendly. Great place to gather with friends for drinks and music in the evening.

Stopped in Shenanigans two weeks ago with my wife. We ended up having a great time talking with people at the bar and also with the bartender Evan. Actually had such a good time we returned on Saturday. Shenanigans will become a stop for us each time we visit OC.

being from NY I found the pace a bit slow (I was hungry), but the live music, video screens filled with campy riddles and fun decor all made the wait worthwhile. The burger was fresh, cooked to perfection, and hit the spot. Beware -- those homemade chips were addicting. Fun on the boardwalk.

Sorry for the miscommunication, Billy -- in the spring and fall, we do close early on Sundays, and I regret that we didn't make that clearer before you decided to stop by. I hope you'll consider giving us another chance some other time, though -- I know we can show you a really good time. Again, my apologies for the... More
