Our 2nd visit this month says this is a good place. We both had the bangers and mash for the first time and it was delicious! The peanut butter pie was out of this world. It was a chiffon like peanut butter filling encased in a chocolate shell. Yummy

Shenanigans is my favorite eating establishment. All entrees are good, but the grouper sandwich, blackened is my favorite. The wait staff is always friendly and attentive. When the weather is nice there is outside dinning. Prices are very reasonable.

Great atmosphere, great service! I suggest the PEI mussels for an appetizer and fish and chips for entrée! My all time 2 favorite dishes!!! The food is pricey but every now and then we have to splurge and enjoy the amazing food they offer!

Too Irish pub in GA? Really? Maybe they know how to make a good Black and Tan or something. Trust me: avoid the "steak and spuds." I've had way better food in middle school cafeterias.

Enjoyed a great meal and some fine Guiness stout while listening to some live entertainment at a late lunch/early dinner. Seating was available though it was a full house. Restroom was only drawback. One restroom for both sexes. Highly recommended, will definitely return.

Wonderful place to drop in on the weekend and grab a beer a seat and some good food. I take my cousin there every time he is in town. We just have a relaxing time catching up. Love the back porch when they have a musician playing. Spring is coming!!! I will be heading back.

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.
