Goan Shack: The Pub Grub

  • Goan Shack: The Pub Grub
Split into a bar and restaurant, the awkwardly-named Goan Shack: The Pub Grub is a popular weekend nightspot for small groups of drinkers and much larger family get-togethers. Once the site of Waxy O’Connors Irish pub, many of the customers it now pulls in have seen just about as much change as the bar’s theme. Despite expectations for a place describing itself as a bar, kids appear to be welcome, and can be found singing and dancing in front of the night’s live entertainment, which typically offers renditions of a surprise-filled medley of Hindi and American hits. Choose your meal from the restaurant’s Goan or broader Indian menu, with dishes ranging from stuffed clams to chicken vindaloo, plus there’s an impressive, lengthy list of mixed drinks. By and large, it’s the more generic Indian dishes that go down best. For the price, there’s superior Indian cuisine available elsewhere, but for an alternative, loosely Goan-themed night out, it’s worth stopping by.

    Would you go back to this bar/club?
    We were greatly overcharged. The waiter was not clear about anything and just kept on getting drinks. he took away the menu too. The place is good but the staff is just horrible.
