Visiting an Irish pub is like stepping into James Joyce's Ulysses without dealing with mole-men, teenage detectives, and heavy-handed NASCAR references. Read the Cliffs Notes with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of pub fare and pours at one of Shamrock Bar & Grille's two locations in Patchen Village or Heartland Parkway.
Shamrock Bar & Grille's menu features an impressive array of classic pub favorites, including soups, salads, sandwiches, and burgers. Start with an order of the Irish nachos ($8.99), Doc Bill's pub pretzels ($5.49), or Wings o' Fire ($7.99), and then shush a bellowing belly with the St. Patty Melt, topped with sautéed onions and swiss on rye toast ($6.49). Committed sippers can pair the Pub Club ($8.49) with a brew from Shamrock's bar, which houses more than 35 different varieties of fermented fortune.
Shamrock Bar & Grille gives off a laid-back vibe through live music, outdoor seating (Patchen Village location), and trivia nights throughout the week. On any day of the week, merry pub goers can kick back and chat or absorb a beloved sporting contest on the 20 flat-screen televisions that line each Shamrock space.
