Decent, would return

Not a bad joint, decent array of food, burgers, pizza, etc... Great selection of tap beers, seat yourself and bus your own table...

My son and I were excited about Shenanigan's - who doesn't love a burger in a college town? Such a disappointment. 1) Burger had an odd flavor, and was served on a hard, square bun 2) Grilled chicken sandwich had a TINY piece of chicken (again, a hard, square bun) Would not return again.

Shenanigan's is an awesome place loved by most Sewanee alumni. I went to Davidson, and my wife went to Sewanee. I am always excited about a trip to Shenanigans. It's informal and casual. Cool classic rock is usually played in the background mixed with some newer stuff. There is a menu of delicious food to choose from including salads, friend... More

A neat gathering place for the" young at heart",great sandwich and burger place, you have to stand in line to place and pay for your order but the food is pretty dang good. Lots of college students, I definitely will return to satisfy my burger thirst

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 Center" for all sorts of... 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...
