Often have lunch here when in Darwin. Lots of TV's to watch sport and the meal is a great feed, especially the Lunch special menu.

When visiting Darwin always visit Shennanigans for a meal and also Entertainment . Meals are generous and Tuesday night is Steak Night. You can sit inside or outside and watch the world go by. It's also a sports bar and if so inclined you can play the Pokies. We have been there both Friday and Saturday nights watching awesome Bands... More

Tuesday night is steak night! The boys had 400g Angus rump for $20 each. This included chips and salad. Pints of beer were $10.50. We sat outside and watched the rain come down and the people walk past. This was a good spot for dinner!

This place isnt quiet, and if you want a few quiet beers and it wont be happening the locals are way loud and get involved, in creating the wild west atmosphere in this place. A sense of old Darwin. But the locals make this place, they enjoy the music, get involved and involve others. Place to party.

The barman was a misery but the waitress was a joy, very helpful. We had burgers, they came with a dish of pale chips which could have done with another few minutes in the fryer. The burgers were fine, a decent Pattie with salad and 'cheese' somewhere in there, the bun was tasty although we didn't eat all of it... More

It was lovely to see the barmaid gently pouring the pint, with care! Very authentic pub with the right atmosphere. The menu is varied and good portions, reasonably priced. Well done.
