St. Paul >Bars & Clubs > Casper & Runyon'a Shamrocks
The service here has been in decline of late. On top of waiting for a table, you can expect a long wait before anyone comes to take your order, and then expect gnerally slow service...waiting forever a for a refill, the food or the check.
The food is only average bar food, for a better experiance try Lucky 13's in Mendota or Burger Moe's towards downtown on 7th.
Good neighborhood place. I live in the neighborhood and enjoy going to Shamrocks. I have brought many friends there and introduced them to the place. I have had mostly positive experiences. Sometimes, like the person previously noted, I've ordered the hamburger and it has come out like a hockey puck. It must depend on who is cooking. It will be curious to see how they do when they add more space to the place.
Best Burger in town. The place has the best burgers in the cities, but have a horrible waitstaff, I have eatn there about twenty times and each time you have to wait ten or fifteen minutes to get your order taken from the time you sit down, and getting the bill is another huge time wait, it just seems like they are either trained bad or not enough workers, but alot of the times there are alot of workers standing around, great burger, dont go if you are in hurry!!!
Hamburgers to Die for!. I've always had good food and good service when I've come here the hamburgers are the best juicy done to perfection.
Consistently poor. I've gone here a number of times and almost every time I've gotten a comp because of either bad food or mistakes. The last time I went was the very last - I ordered a regular burger and asked for it medium. It came out so overdone I couldn't eat it. Now I know where the "hockey puck" expression came from. I kept going back because I know mistakes happen, and I wanted to like the place. But every time they overcook the burgers, forget what you ordered or make some other mistake. At least the manager tries to make up for it. But no more - I've found much better places.
Consistently the best!. The burgers are fabulous-juicy and delicious-amazing hand-cut fries and a lot of other great casual offerings- greatatmosphere neighborhood feel!
Best burgers I've EVER had... and that's saying something.. I love food... period. But most of all, I consider myself an afficionado of burgers. Every place I travel to, I have to try the highest recommended burger places... but none have been able to de-throne Shamrock's which is in my own backyard of St. Paul, MN (owned by the same burger-experts who run The Nook - which is more popular, but same food). You have to love grease and you have to love meat to really appreciate this masterpiece. My first experience was The Nook challenge (2 Double Burger baskets w/ fries - at 1/3 lb per patty, we're talkin' 1-1/3 lb of beef) and I have the photo and t-shirt (which I display like a badge of honor) to prove I finished this monstrous meal. Any other burger and I wouldn't have been able to finish it... but it is so frickin' good... I almost wanted more... almost. If you're looking for the best-ever burger, look no further... stop reading this, get in your car and drive to St. Paul.
I have tried "The Nook" and was craving their Jucy Nookie (Jucy Lucy) and fries, so we tried Shamrock's hearing that it has more seating. We were seated right away - the burgers are the same as "The Nook" and in my opinion the best in the state! The fries are fresh cut and a must have as well.
The only reason I gave 4 rather than 5 stars is the waitress. She was pretty friendly and helpful at first, but once we had our food she only stopped once to check on how everything was (right away). Towards the end of our meal we were badly in need of refills - finally having to wave her down and ask. I can get past this though with the awesomeness of the Jucy Nookie and fries!
Best Burgers in Town!!!.
