Skosh's is a great place to have a meal with family and friends. Excellent food, great prices. They have a great variety of food as well as drink. Must try the cold Petron shot! A great place to hold a party.

Stopped by after a beach visit to wait out the traffic. Mostly because kids eat free on Wednesday. Booth had a tv for the kids to watch a show while I enjoyed my Irish Ale that was recommended by the waitress. She even brought me a taster...impressive. Kids were happy, steak was cooked a little uneven, but all in all... More

Burgers there are simply amazing - best I've ever tried! I wonder how I can eat burgers now in other places... we were staying in nearby hotel and came back to Monahan's several times, as their food is really stunning. Steaks & margaritas are also outstanding. Really outstanding place to eat!

I call this bar my CHEERS bar. Always come in talk to either Gary (owner) or Charlie (bar manager/ bartender) and end my work day here. Love this bar- it's always entertaining and never a dull moment at Skosh Monahans! Highly recommended!

Great local haunt that is run by a great guy who wants to converse with and get to know his patrons even if - like me - they are only passing through. decent sized menu, excellent draught selection.

We are currently on a road trip and checked into the Cozy Inn. I have major food allergies, so it can be difficult to find places to eat. Upon check in, I started looking for nearby restaurants. The hotel told us about Skosh Monahan's...but we weren't sure. I googled it, it's an Irish pub/Sports Bar. I still wasn't sure. I... More

We've driven past for literally hundreds of times and never stopped. Can you say "dumb"? Great food, good service, reasonable prices. What else do you want. You think Irish food because of the name, but comfort food is closer to what they serve, with steaks, chicken, burgers, and fish and chips. Plenty of screens so you can keep up with... More

The best food in Costa Mesa. Always spotless even when there's a lot of rude drunks. Has a gluten free menu for those with a sensitivity. And unlike other places they pay attention when you say you have food allergies. I have a lot of them myself and most places don't take me seriously. Here they do. I never have... More
