Great Irish Pub and Grille

I must say that the atmosphere here is great, the food is great. It is a real irish type bar and you will see when you visit it. I cannot wait to get back there someday and experience a good session and food

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

We were there off-season and late in the evening. The service was good, there were not a lot of people and we thought the food was great. We had the Emerald Isle Egg Rolls and Poacher Boy Salmon, both well-prepared and delish. Guiness is Guiness, but my mixed drink was a little light on the ethanol. We'd go again.

The restaurant was pretty crowded during our visit. The food was good. My son had the fish and chips and the filet was huge (I joked that he could use it surf the waves). Our waiter was not very attentive. We will try this place again in the future and hopefully the service is better.

We just went here for drinks and apps. They served a mean budweiser bottle. So cold. Their food was amazing. I scarfed it down. Its like they were testing us for weaknesses. Seeing if we'd break down and order more food.
