Closed for the Season! It’s hard to believe, we just celebrated our 30th St. Patrick’s Day! 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 30-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

Long time Shenanigan's fan here - going back to the early 80's - and yet, they still manage to provide great food and drink - and a great time too...even in off-season. Visit One - craft beer and bay seasoned shrimp (wife barely shared). Visit...More

I ordered the bangers and mash. Yummy sausage and onions. Came with a very heavy, dark gravy that was a bit much, but otherwise good.
