Great Irish fare

The bangers and mash was fantastic - good atmosphere, good wait staff and great location on the boardwalk.

The food at Shenanigan's really exceeded my expectations for bar food (and especially Boardwalk bar food). We had the special (brisket) and a burger, and both were really delicious and hit the spot! The service was friendly and attentive. This seems like a great choice for families as well.

Good crab cake sandwiches, good lunch. Great time sitting on the boardwalk. Lots of draft beers. We dine here several times a year. It's a fun place to go.

We spent the bulk of our evening celebrating St. Paddy's day with the fine folks of OC. Everyone was friendly and the Guinness was flowing faster than the tempo of the traditional band, off the boat. Their version of the shepherds pie was delicious and I can truly say I spent all my money on whiskey and beer! Thanks to... More

Home of the perfectly poured pint of Guinness? As The Wild Rover sang "never no more". $5 and 4 ounceshort of a pint. Andon't follow the rainbow here on St PaDs eve. The holiday may b the raison detre of Irish bars, but Shenanigans is closed the day b4 StPats. No pot of gold here.

It hurts to write this review because this was my favorite for years. They aren't as dedicated to live music in the summer and their beer prices are ridiculous. Over St Patty' s day, a Guinness draft in a 14 ounce glass was $6 after a $.50 tip. It's 1/3 smaller for the same money as the traditional Guinness pub... More

Managed to hit this pub on the last day of the season. It was packed. Any time you walk into a bar off season and see this many people you know it has to be a good place. The waitress staff were very pleasant and we were sat very quickly. The menu was very affordable, and the Irish theme drinks... More

We visited the Pub on a Sunday afternoon at the beginning of off season. We understand that next weekend they are closing for the season. We were greeted promptly and seated at a comfortable table in the dining room. Being a very cold and stormy weekend it was not very crowded and the staff seemed a bit uninterested. The dark... More
