Description: 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.

We brought some friends from out of town here for lunch one Sunday. We each ordered something different from the menu and each of us were very pleased with the food. It's not totally Irish food - they certainly have some - but they also have your basic Pub food. The place is friendly, I would guess a few local hang out there and if the weather is nice you can eat on the screen porch. I've eaten at a few places in Dahlonega, this is certainly worth a visit.

Nice little pubby place, diverse seating options, good music on selected nights. Food quality is unvaryingly superb. I've even had waitresses bring me my meal, notice that something is not quite right, take it back to the kitchen, and rush me a new order. Now that's service!

Try the burgers, the grouper sandwich, the "Shillelagh," and the "pub crawl" salad - all fantastic. Keep up the great work!

We were so impressed with this place that we went there twice in two days! There is a very extensive menu and a decent wine list. The staff were lovely and friendly. We visited on Halloween and there were some rowdy locals in the place being obnoxious but the staff handled it well. The next day it was much quieter and the sun was out and there is a great sun trap area to sit outside. The food was delicious and a good price - go for one of the many delicious burgers - you wont be disappointed!

Hard to find a restaurant open on Monday night so we ended up here. Food was good, not great. They tend to use a lot of butter or fat in their dishes. Poor wine selection but good on beer.
