About
Closed until St. Patrick's Day 2021! Many things have changed since we poured our first pint in 1988, some fads have come and gone and come back again. But throughout our 32-year run, one of the things that has remained constant is our great crew. Most of the faces and names have changed, but they have (nearly) all embraced the “Shenanigan’s Way”... providing quality food and service, always remembering it’s the customer who allows us to thrive. We’re forced to spend most of every day in a fast-paced, online world, and Shenanigan’s values our customers’ tweets and posts as much as our competition, but while you’re here, we hope you’ll also take the time to enjoy your time. So, go ahead and shoot

We had a laid back dinner on our last night of our April long weekend in OC. The pub is on the Boardwalk. We sat inside because it was chilly, but outdoor seating is available and no doubt in high demand in better weather. The...draft beer selection offers something for most tastes. Our server was friendly and attentive. When the Chesapeake Mac-N-Cheese arrived, I didn't think I could eat all of it, but it was so tasty that I DID. My wife had a chicken appetizer and a side of the regular mac and cheese. She couldn't finish, but it wasn't because the food wasn't good. We would add a meal at Shenanigan's to future visits to OC.More

My husband and I are so glad we stopped in and gave them a try. Very friendly servers and very large, tasty corned beef sandwich ever. Price very reasonable. This corned beef sandwich tasted better then if I got it from a deli. Can't wait...to come back to OC so I could have another.More

Shenanigan's has a great Irish Pub atmosphere. They have very good "authentic" Irish food. Sheppard's pie is great! Very full and rich tasting base. Loaded with meat and veggies. Crab tots are a nice app and the prices are reasonable!

Had a burger and salad. The burger had great flavor and was cooked just right. The salad was mixed greens and came with enough dressing for the size of the bowl. We sat outside and the service was excellent. Will definitely eat here on our...next trip.More

Was able to sit inside. Food was really good. Staff was awesome. Only drawback was only one free refill. Said it was because they lowered the price during COVID-19. Big portions. And it was right off the boardwalk.More

Check the Ocean City visitor Kiosk on the boardwalk. It's around the bathhouses North of the amusement pier.
