This pub reminded me of 2 places we visited in Ireland. Authentic atmosphere as well as foods. The dinners we had were great! The prime rib was amazing! The macaroni and cheese with corned beef, fabulous! Fast, efficient service and live music! We were there...More

The waiter was amazing. When asked for suggestions, he provided us with selections from each section of the menu. The Guiness fried brie was an amazing appetizer- more than enough to share. After much discussion, we opted for the portobello mushroom sandwich, chicken club, and...More

I enjoy going here for the whiskey tasting. Last time I had found one I really liked. So I took my boyfriend with me to try it. He liked it as well. We had a great talk with the manager about where we can buy...More

By the time we arrived in Fairfax, our family of five had traveled through 13 states, eaten more fast-food than we care to admit, and just wanted good food. Look no further than The Auld Shebeen! If you are reading this while on your way...More

A grand pub experience in NOVA. You should visit for a small slice of Ireland which to us is good drink, good food and good friends

Having traveled to Ireland multiple times, the Auld Shebeen takes us back. The food is good, simple in the Irish tradition, we've never had a bad meal. The live music is enjoyable and takes us back to the small pubs found in every Irish County....More

The pub, downstairs, is essentially for drinking and entertainment, but the food is good as well. The menu is limited, not surprisingly, but the few things we tried were good. Good place for a party, which is why I went this time. Parking garage less...More

The Auld Shebeen is Fairfax City's only authentic Irish Pub and Restaurant. In Ireland a Shebeen was an illicit drinking den, an after hours speakeasy where once inside people found good familiar conversation, drink, friends and great food! Fascinating history surrounds these shebeens that have always offered excitement for local patrons and will forever be a part of Irish lore. Our Menu is based on both traditional Irish recipes and American cuisine. Our house specialties include our Seafood Stew, Dubliner Stuffed Chicken and our Filet Mignon with Irish whiskey and green peppercorn sauce,with many others including many traditional Irish pub favorites like our Guinness Beef Stew, Shepherd's Pie or Fish and Chips. So whether it is a few quiet pints after work or a special evening out, here at The Auld Shebeen we will do our utmost to make your visit with us a special one. We feature live traditional Irish music every Friday and Saturday in the restaurant.
