Shamrocks Pub & Grill is a place where the staff knows your name.
The restaurant, located at 4177 Veterans Memorial Parkway in St. Peters, prides itself on superior customer service.
“Our staff is very one-on-one with our customers,” said Kelly Dent, who owns Shamrocks Pub & Grill with her husband, Kyle, and her parents, Tom and Mary Durst. “We have a lot of regulars, and we care about their lives. They are not just a number. We build relationships with our customers.”
Whether it’s a girls’ night out, dinner with the family or a retirement party, Shamrocks Pub and Grill can make each celebration special.
The 6,000-square-foot restaurant can seat 160 inside, and a large outdoor patio can accommodate an additional 150 guests. Half of the restaurant can be rented out, and Shamrocks will cater the event to meet the needs of customers – and they even deliver, both lunch and catered meals.
Dent said Shamrocks can set up anything from a buffet to a sit down dinner or an appetizer bar.
Hungry for some comfort food?
Shamrocks offers traditional American cuisine like burgers, pizza, sandwiches, soups and salads. The menu also features several Irish entrees like Guinness Lamb Stew, Bangers’n Mash, Corned Beef n’ Cabbage and Herd O’ Sheepherds Pie. An Irish Mac n’ Cheese combines a casserole of noodles, corned beef, bacon and homemade beer cheese with a hint of ranch dressing baked with mozzarella and provolone.
Dent suggests new diners start out with the pub’s best seller – soft pretzels served with a warm, beer cheese sauce made with Smithwick’s Irish Red Ale.
“A lot of people will get the beer cheese sauce to put on everything they order,” Dent said.
For the entrée, Dent recommends the made-from-scratch chicken pot pie which includes chicken, peas, potatoes, carrots and onions in a creamy broth topped with a flaky puff pastry.
For dessert, diners can try Aunt Lavern’s Gooey Butter Cake or warm cinnamon pretzels. The pub also offers fried Oreos, which are dipped in funnel cake batter before being deep fried and covered in powdered sugar.
Just looking for a place to catch up with friends and grab a drink?
Shamrocks Pub & Grill is known for its vast craft beer choices. The bar has 24 different craft beers on tap to tantalize the tongues of beer connoisseurs. From Dr. Acula – an oak aged dark ale – to Box of Chocolates, a stout beer available around Valentine’s Day, pub customers can grab a pint after work or pick up a growler to take home. On Tuesdays and Sundays, bottled wine and Growler fills are half-price with the purchase of an entrée.
Not a beer drinker?
Check out one of the 30 dessert martinis, ranging from a maple bourbon to bananas foster to red velvet cake. Dent recommends the Gooey Butter Cake Martini, which is topped with a powdered sugar rim.
The pub also has live music on the weekends. The Main Event Band will take the stage on Aug. 23, and the Steve Ewing Band will play on Aug. 30. In addition, pubgoers can play darts, bag games or trivia during the week.
Happy Hour is from 2 – 7 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 p.m. – 1 a.m. Monday-Thursday. Be sure to check the website for the entertainment calendar and daily drink specials.
