We visit here on an almost weekly basis. This is one of the few restaurants where there are several items on the menu I order (usually it's just one item and any particular restaurant). I love that it is upscale food in a very casual atmosphere. I have NEVER had a bad meal here. I am partial to the salmon... More

My friends, family and I have been coming here for the past four years and we love the place. Their crack dip is a must and I've never had meal that disappointed. The prices are a little steep with it being a college town, but it's a nice treat to have every now and then. Only reason I gave four... More

Shenanigans is easily one of my favorite sit-down restaurants in Dahlonega for several reasons. The service is top notch, with most waiters/waitresses knowing their menu in and out. Overall the food is delicious, even though they did away with my favorite appetizer(cheese filled tater tots). The only complaint I have is the price. Since this is a more upscale restaurant,...

Food portions small and they charge for substitutions from chips to fries- not pleased with value or service. Beer prices were comparable to other places in area.

The servers were great, the food delicious and I especially liked sitting outside. We were a party of four and our food was prompt and frankly quite delicious. The fact that it was our friends honeymoon night was made special by the kindness of our server. Thanks for the great time!

No customer service at all. The hostess looked like she was inconvenienced by our presence. The food was ok but nothing awesome. Not something I'd return for.

This is a pretty good restaurant. The food and service were good, the patio area is nice, the decor is funky, and the live music wasn't too loud. However, the portions of some of their lunch items are just too small. I ordered the Irish stew with some bread points (small pieces of toasted bread for which they charge you... More

My husband and I had dinner during our recent short stay on the square. We really like Irish pub food, and they do a pretty good job at this place. The bangers and mash were great except they were loaded down with extra toppings that are not particularly authentic Irish. The fish and chips was really good and the waitress... More

We made a to-go order while staying at Forrest hills resort and the food was amazing. We had a chicken and mushroom quesadilla a smaller white pizza with feta and tomatoes on it and the Irish nachos. We will eat here every time we visit in the future!

We met some friends there for dinner and ended up staying for Thursday night trivia. We have an absolute blast and play to get some good opponents. The questions were great and the beer was awesome. They have a great selection of local beers, which I love!

Thank Megan C

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.
