Shenanigans is one of my "go to" spots here in my home town. I love the Guinness burger! Friendly faces, great food and live music on the weekends!

We had fish and chips, food was done perfectly; the service was excellent and we really enjoyed the meal. Best meal in Dahlonega area and we go there 2-3 times a year.

The food (Irish stew) was so tasty, I asked the chief for the recipe & he hand wrote the ingredients for me. I was impressed. He did not list the size of the ingredients, but I could figure that part out. You can't go wrong eating here.

I asked 2 locals where to eat and they both said Shenanigans, which is always a good sign! The crack dip (sausage and cheese) is amazing, easy to see why it got the name. The shepherds pie was so flavorful and filling. My server was attentive and food came lightning fast. By the time I left, it was clear why... More

Went with friends for lunch, after an overnight on the Appalachian Trail. Fun atmosphere (best if you can get a table outside - although they were full when we got there this time), with great food and beers. I had the "grouben" - would highly recommend it. But the burgers and other food that the rest of my group ate... More

What can I say about Shenanigan's that hasn't already been said, probably nothing as all the 5 star reviews have attested. We loved the frenetic atmosphere and loved the idea of the $1 bill on the wall. It really gave the place a unique character and is something we can come back years later and look at. Really Neat!! We... More

The food was really good with a few twists on standard Irish dishes. Service was great and atmosphere was very casual. Would definitely recommend.

Fun, great service and great food! We visited recently on a day trip to Dahlonega. It was Spring Break and even though they were busy the food and service were both great.

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.
