A must-visit

First of all, let me clear- Shenanigans is a "burger and beer" joint at its core. There are plenty of other (finer) dining options available. Howevere, if you want to get a taste of what the community is like in Sewanee, a stop at Shenanigans is a must. The place serves as a virtual "Community... read more

Yesterday I flew from Spartanburg, South Carolina to Sewanee and back, to drop my son at the University of the South. For anyone in the area, Shenanigan's, the local burger joint, is a required destination for great eats. Fried pickles! Fried eggplant! Huge juicy burgers. The menu goes on and on. An array of local suds on tap. While under... More

Spicy turkey melt or the Skinny Bob along with some fried zucchini is by far my favorite! Good selection of beers as well.

Having never been to the old Shenanigan's and thankfully not having gone to it during the nightmare of 2011-2013. I am delighted every time I go here, the atmosphere is exuberant and really has the feel of a small town haunt. Love it! Great food every time, I have never been upset with the quality of food, service, and beer!

We ate here while touring the college. It is very casual with a front porch, a bar type area in the center of the room and two dining areas - one at the front and one at the back of the room. The food is typical sandwich type food, but seems a step up. Ingredients seemed fresh and generous. They... More

If you want a great pastrami sandwich and soup and a cold Stella Artois along about Thursday night Shenanigans is the place. If you have any connection to the University of the South, to the Episcopal Church, to the Monteagle Assembly; if you are a writer, a biker or eccentric retiree, you will find someone to talk to and enjoy...

Shenanigans is always a must stop when we go to Monteagle, TN. A very short drive through University of the South Campus (or you can take the hiway around the campus) and you are at the bright blue building.This is always a place the we take our family and friends who may be traveling with us. They have good and... More

Can't beat the simple success here of wooden tables, a hearty and health fare menu, good ice tea. The fried mushrooms were really good. Nice to see Sewanee continues to have a good local and comfortable character spot where people constantly stop in for the quick cafe food and atmosphere.

We went back to Shenanigan's today for the first time since the relaunch, and it was merely average. The food was prepared relatively quickly, and the people working there were friendly enough. I ordered the burger, which had an ... interesting/different flavor to it. But it was certainly a good bargain. My family got grilled sandwiches and were very happy... More
