Great Pub Atmosphere on the Boardwalk

Our first visit to Shenanigan's was last March when we met our daughter after she ran in the annual St. Patrick's day 5k. It was cold and rainy so we were inside the pub enjoying drinks. This time we went for lunch on a warm afternoon and sat outside. The menu includes a nice choice of healthy... read more

After walking on the boardwalk we decided to stop in for dinner. Our server was attentive and meal was delicious. I would highly recommend their version of shepherd's pie, it was amazing.

We went here last time and enjoyed the gravy fries. We came back this time for dinner and weren't overly impressed. I will say that having a gluten free menu and gluten free buns really made my dinner great. The service however was horrible! I think they were under staffed as it was late August but still. The mussels were... More

While I'm really glad you liked your meals, I'm sorry to hear the service wasn't what it should have been. While you're right that this is definitely our busiest season, that just means we need to be prepared for the crowds, and I'm sorry we apparently weren't. Can you get in touch with me sometime with the date and time... More

Great food. Get the salmon- you will not be disappointed! We loved it so much the first night that we went back the next night! Service is less than ideal, only downfall. Food is excellent, prices are fair

Great choice on the salmon, it's definitely tasty! But then, we love everything on the menu! Sorry if the service wasn't what it should have been, but it sounds like that wasn't a big deal. Still, we'll see what we can do about that. Thanks again! Take care, Greg - Owner More

Date night with my spouse. Had an awesome time. The bartenders were very quick to take your order & made sure you were happy with what you ordered or else they would fix it. First time stopping here and we really enjoyed it. Cant wait to go back.

Shenanigans has always been the one restaurant we would always go to when in OC, but NO MORE!! The waitress was too rushed, service was slow. I ordered the fish and chips and when I finally got my food it was cold and the fish was VERY dry!! My daughter ordered the fish taco and had to send it back... More

I'm very surprised to hear this, Debbie -- like you yourself said, this is really strange and unusual for us. I'm not sure what could have gone wrong, but I will look into it. I'd also like to apologize for the bad time you had here -- you should have only been treated politely and professionally, no matter how many... More

The food was great, the staff was friendly, and the entertainment was awesome. Went with my fiancé and 3 year old son. One of the best parts was my son's meal, the pot of gold, it had several finger foods which was perfect for him since he tends to be a picky eater. The hostess and the waitress both spoke... More

Love sitting on their outside deck when we dine here! I ordered the pretzel stuffed with jalapeños & cheese as an app and the 1/2lb steamed shrimp. Both were excellent. Prepare to season your own shrimp though. I asked for some xtra Old Bay & melted butter for dipping. YUMMY! The fried shrimp, fish & chips, & crab cake sandwich... More
