Although no one in my group ordered an Irish specality, everyone enjoyed their seafood and chicken salad sandwich. If it is not summer, try eating outside on a covered or uncovered patio. Go upstairs if you want good air conditioning and the downstairs bar was serving spirits and intense conversations the day we went. The servers are mostly college students... More

This is a great spot for food and drink just off the square. You must try the grouben sandwich---it's a ruben made with grouper. Sounds weird, but is so delicious! If you're really lucky, young guitar wizard Hughes Taylor will be playing. Delicious food, refreshing drinks, great music---a fine summer night, indeed.

Small inside seating area, but has additional seating on a covered porch area and outside. We had just appetizers which were very good. Their drinks were excellent. We went twice during our short stay in Dahlonega.

We enjoyed our dinner here very much. Great food and drinks. Ashley was our server and she was spot on with the suggestions for food. The entire staff was great, all pitched in together to make sure that we had whatever we needed. We were there for karaoke night and it was a lot of fun.

We stopped for a late lunch and the food was EXCELLENT! Great atmosphere for our family and kid friendly. We sat on the outdoor covered patio and listened to the live music. Lunch was casual and loved the food selection. Great place!

Ate here twice before, it was pretty good. Last night the food was awful. Shepherd's Pie was tasteless. Fish and Chips, tasteless. Bangers and Mash, tasteless. It was actually amazingly bland. I could let pass the fact that with reservations made two days in advance for the porch, they gave it away to walk-ins...things happen, but the food was memorably... More

After I saw a facebook post from a friend we were looking for something different for our day. We located the place checked it out mid afternoon with a cool refreshing beverage informing the waitress we intended to return for dinner when we received our check we noticed that the tax for the beverages was included with the menu price....

Shenanigans Restaurant & Irish Pub- or simply "The Pub" to its loyal guests and staff- is the "Cheers" of Dahlonega: a welcoming place to enjoy delicious food & drinks while making friends & memories. Shenanigans is located just off the picturesque Dahlonega square in the historic Strickland House. Look for the white building flying the Irish flag! Step inside and you'll quickly discover a very special atmosphere & dining experience. From the walls plastered with dollar bills decorated by guests, to the smiling servers behind a full liquor bar covered with photographs of celebrations past, it is clear that this is a place where people love to be. Shenanigans offers intimate indoor seating, a covered heated patio, and a pet-friendly deck & courtyard. This space allows us to host events and serve parties of various sizes, and could be the perfect location for your next meeting, rehearsal dinner, or get-together. We also feature weekly live music, Trivia, & Open Mic Night. Our fun, creative menu offers something for everyone and keeps our guests returning time after time. Classic pub foods like burgers, pizza, & wings are served alongside Irish favorites like Shepherd's Pie, Fish & Chips, or Bangers & Mash. Shenanigans also features lighter "Leaves & Ladels" fare and hearty entrees like Balsamic Basil Sirloin, P.E.I. Mussels Linguini, or Seared Ahi Tuna. Don't miss out on the legendary "Crack Dip." Do you have special dietary needs? Don't worry! We have many vegetarian/vegan/gluten-free options, and we will help you find a tasty meal for any allergy. Catering available.
