Description: Shamrock Jack's Irish Pub is a family-owned Irish Pub and Restaurant blending the magical spirit of Ireland with contemporary food and drink. We are located just a few minutes north of the City of Rochester in Sea Breeze, New York, a bustling resort community on the shores of beautiful Lake Ontario. Established in August 2003, the Petzing family transformed a spacious Victorian home and ballroom dance studio into one of the best steak and seafood restaurants in upstate New York. The old-world, Irish charm of Shamrock Jack's runs through the European-style back bar, hand-crafted booths, and warm, inviting dining rooms. Shamrock Jack's has recently transformed into your local go-to Irish Pub for casual dining with family and friends. We received the commendation for 2014 Best Irish Pub in Rochester! Spend the afternoon sipping pints on our expanded front porch or our back patio, enjoy live music until the wee hours in our charming Irish pub, or have a delightful dinner with family and friends in one of our warm, welcoming dining rooms. And don't forget to visit our resident Leprechaun just inside the front entrance!

Now newly renovated, Shamrock Jack's is a friendly spot frequented by those who enjoy a casually delightful bar and wonderful selections, from bar food to fine dining, all nicely prepared. Prices are very reasonable. We've eaten there over a dozen times and look forward to returning again soon!

I had the special of the day: a Delmonico steak with carmelized onions, cheese and a french onion sauce on top. Marvelous! Bourbon old fashioned cocktails were well made and tasty. Great selection of beers. Entrees and sandwiches all are made fresh. This is a family business that has a long history of success. We always go here for birthday celebrations as well. I would recommend without hesitation.

The environment is a bit odd. They are definitely going for the Irish Pub theme as you have to walk through a loud bar for meal seating. The seating was spread around in ancillary rooms. Not the most comfortable chairs. The service was ok, nothing amazing. Drinks go dry for a while. The number one impression of all the dishes ordered at our table was "greasy". That's most of the food in the area though. The outside of this place makes it look a little slicker than it really is. Maybe don't be fooled.

It was a very busy Friday night, but we were seated right away, in the "library". Our server Tiara was at our table almost immediately, and was very attentive in spite of handling many other diners. The soup of the day was creamy broccoli cheddar, and if I had known how delicious it was, that could've been my dinner! I'll look for it next time. My entree was the chicken French, and it too, was excellent. My husband had the Philly cheesesteak and he said it was very, very good. A fun pub, with lots of nooks and crannies. We have enjoyed many other lunches and dinners there, and will continue to go back for the food & atmosphere.

They have a great menu with anything from sandwiches to steak. Had the Rib-eye and it was cooked to perfection.
