Always loved this place in college and on trips back to the Domain. Was pleased to see that they're now offering healthier fare, but I happily dove into my grilled cheese (with tomatoes, mushrooms & onions) and French fries. I was initially sad that they'd discontinued the curly seasoned fries, but the steak fries were great, and I didn't have... More

This is coming from a meat lover that normally doesn't eat burgers made of veggies... But THAT black bean burger changed me! So tasty! Their fried zucchini and pickle chips were REALLY good too. It was a super fun place to chill and hang with the crew... We had a hootin' hollerin' good time!

My girlfriends and I had a great lunch at Shenanigans last week. I ate a small burger. They had salads. It was all good. Really good. This is a college place. Don't expect peace and quiet. Just really good and fresh food.

Great sandwiches and coffees. This place opened right before I graduated back in 1976. Loved getting to revisit this blast from the past.

The food and the staff are great. We especially liked the staff as they engaged us in conversation about the area and what it has to offer. Also, be prepared to engage the student from the University as they enthusiastically share their experience in studying in such a beautiful environment.

Very convenient to University of the South. Food was okay, a little high due to location. Service was okay, not as friendly when compared to other places we stopped on TN while on this trip.

One taking orders, and one finishing the sandwich assembly doesn't make a speedy meal, but you have to enjoy watching the process in this old fashion place with quaint tables and benches or rickety chairs. Cold beers on tap, great burgers, and sandwiches made with fresh ingredients by friendly people make this a happening place!

Shenanigans is a short jump off of interstate 24. If you are not interested in fun or adventure stop reading now. It is a college town. Students frequent the place as well as the sophisticated residents. The service and the food..superb. After you have had your fill drive the campus. If you miss the campus you missed everything. The University... More

Unlike a lot of so-called "iconic" or traditional college town student haunts, that everybody says you "have to visit", this one is actually good. Have loved the fried food, and the veggie items, and getting a pint or a pitcher of beer and hanging out with friends here for over 20 years.

This cafe appears to be a tradition for Sewanee: The University of the South. Lively crowd, clean and better than average food. Fair prices. Large servings.
