This place is a really cute local restaurant in Dahlonega. The downstairs part is mostly the pub area but upstairs is more suited for restaurant dining. We didn't try any authentic Irish cuisine but the food we did have was pretty good. The service was also great and really quick.

Food was tasty - we will be... More

A nice Irish Pub style restaurant and bar. Good food and good service. Centered in downtown Dahlonega. Parking is not as adequate as it needs to be. Handicapped access is by special request only. Inside and outside seating. Would go more often if it was easier to get to.

Shenanigans has become my wife's favorite in town. She tasted my steak and spuds a couple of visits ago and has had to go back numerous times so she could have here own. I had a burger with bacon and fries that was excellent.

Started to go to Pueblos, they only had a 2 top squished in table. So, we went to Shenanigans. Best decision ever!! Service was top notch with Leah and Margaret tag teaming and taking care of their customers, awesome. I ordered the 'thicker' stew where Margaret explained that they have one thick and one more soupy. DH ordered fish and... More

We popped into Shenanigans for dinner while visiting the Dahlonega square, and we were pleasantly surprised with the unique ambiance and delicious food. Although a Monday night, the downstairs pub area was full, but we found seats at the bar. The menu includes a pretty good selection of draft beers, including Guiness Stout. For our meals, I had the fish... More

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.
