We were so happy to come across this pub. After a long day at the JFK Museum we (5 of us) were hungry and exhausted. We had driven through the area and somehow came across the pub with a nice parking lot. We were greeted so warmly. The food was delicious as were the desserts. The waiter was so personable--we all really had fun. The prices were reasonable. Overall a nice experience.

“Good food, large portions & decent prices”
Reviewed August 3, 2012

This neighborhood restaurant has become our favorite in the South Boston area. They have a good choice of food on their regular menu plus a number of specials each day. We mostly order the specials. All the meals we have ordered were cooked perfectly and served hot. We really like the fish & chips ($10.99) & the scallops ($14.99). We have had several different dishes....steak, pasta, seafood, sandwiches...all tasty & the portions were very generous. Shenannigan's attracts a mixed crowd during the day, but probably attracts a younger crowd at night for Karaoke. The front of the restaurant is open to the street during warm weather & there is outdoor seating behind the restaurant.

“Fun, local pub with friendly bar staff”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

Was here for St. Patty's day, passing through with the parade. Though they weren't serving food that day, we enjoyed our time drinking Guinness in a fun atmosphere. The bar staff was incredibly friendly and on top of their game given it was so busy. The music was good, the interior of the restaurant is cozy.

I would definitely come back again, if only for a Guinness.
