It was very crowded but we were able to be seated in the bar area. The wait staff was great!!! And all dressed in costumes for Halloween which made it fun. We just had sandwiches but they were delicious.

Had a delicious lunch out on the deck. Aside from cigarette smoke drifting over from a separate seating area it couldn't have been better. I enjoyed the Fish sandwich with chips. Excellent. Especially with a cold beer. My wife had the Irish stew which she loved. Service was excellent and very friendly. We will definitely be back. Dahlonega is well... More

Shenanigan's is a great spot for a good meal right off the square in downtown Dahlonega. I had the steak and spuds, excellent shaved sirloin steak, with mushrooms and onions cooked down in a light brown gravy. wife had the fish and chips, really good, our 5 year old ate half the fish. Really good meal, excellent environment and service.

Food and service were both good. The hot wings were delicious, but very hot! I had the grouper sandwich and my husband had a shrimp wrap. He said it was amazing.

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.
