Love the crab cakes here. Greg, the owner, came to all the tables and asked how everyone was doing. Class place. Will be back.

My family and I come down twice a year from New Jersey both in the spring and the fall months. The drinks are cold, the Guinness is perfectly poured and the bar manager Evan is the best bartender we've ever had anywhere. Such a friendly and nice fellow. We always stop to see him. Highly recommend stopping in here for... More

We happened to venture upon Shenanigan’s on the weekend it was closing for the season, and it was still quite busy. We were fortunate enough to grab an outdoor table next to the boardwalk, where they people-watching was entertaining to say the least. (The view across the beach of the ocean was pretty nice, too.) Even though most the outside... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch on their last day of the season. Great turkey club and fish tacos. Staff was great, the owner was very nice and the food was wonderful.

My wife, daughter and I visit OC several times per year and always look forward to visiting Shenanigans. The atmosphere is pleasant, food is very good, and the bar staff is always friendly. Evan and Spence are particularly great to interact with. I recommend this bar restaurant to many friends, and I look forward to having a Guinness next season!

Stopped in for dinner on a Saturday evening and had a great meal. Service was great from Mihai. Had the brisket and grits, and would have it again next time. Only complaint is no Irish music.

We were in OC for the weekend and luckily we arrived early Friday, so we took our 2 sons out for a walk on the boardwalk and came across Shenanigan's. Many places were closed, but luckily for us we ate here and very much enjoyed the evening so much that my wife and I returned the next night. Crab soup... More

We always make time to go to Shenangan's during our trip home for St. Practice Day (what OC locals call the St. Patrick's Day parade weekend). It is usually our first weekend stop on Friday night, with excellent drink and food specials. The Irish music puts us in the right mood to have a blast all weekend. Right off the... More

Visited during Bikefest in September. Although most of their help does go back to school, lack of servers was not the issue, it was their lack of care. We were looking for late night dinner, arrived and the host or a server was standing near the door. As we walked in, he made eye contact, turned his back and walked... More

Hi Debbie! I am disappointed to read your review! I apologize that this happened to you. Can you give me a little more information about your experience? What time did you arrive? It sounds as though you arrived after we closed the kitchen. The servers do not take new tables once the kitchen closes, however, that is no excuse for... More

We were staying on the other end of the boardwalk, so to be honest, I didn't feel like walking that far to get dinner that evening, but my husband was set on trying this place out.
