We stopped in after hiking for few apps and a beer. The selection was good, and the food delicious! We had the Irish nachos, and they were superb! I highly recommend this place for a friendly atmosphere, good drinks and great food!

Wife and I had dinner here on a SAT. She had the fish and chips, I had the Shepard's Pie. We shared some Guiness Chocolate cake. All very good, also the service.

This pub has great indoor and outdoor seating. We enjoyed an unseasonably warm day on the deck in January! Expansive menu - highly recommend the crack dip appetizer. Prices are reasonably as well!

We stopped in for lunch on a crowded weekday right after Christmas. We ordered burgers, and have had some as good at Cracker Barrel at a cheaper price. The service was mediocre, with the staff not very interested in customers. We probably won't go back.

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.

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.
