Old Shill

A hundred thousand welcomes at Old Shillelagh

The Old Shillelagh in Detroit has been a Greektown staple since 1975, but aside from their famous circus-style tent parties, this three-story venue has much more to offer than meets the eye, including great food and an endless happy hour for guests who live or work in Detroit.

The Old Shillelagh’s “F*cking Awesome Burger” was recently voted the Best Burger in Detroit by readers of Real Detroit Weekly. This monster burger features a 1/2 pound of organic Michigan beef, two slices of thick cut bacon, melted colby jack cheese topped with house made mayo and all the fixin’s on a soft brioche bun. Definitely sounds awesome by my standards. But if burgers aren’t your thing, there’s plenty more to choose from on the Old Shillelagh’s recently revamped menu, which now features greater variety and fries with every sandwich.

Do you live or work in Detroit? Then be sure to stop by the Old Shillelagh to pick up a free keytag good for endless happy hour all the time! Just present this Kroger-like savings card to your server before you order and you can take advantage of Shillelagh’s happy hour prices any time of day, any day of the week.

The Old Shillelagh offers a free shuttle service to and from all major downtown sporting events and concerts.

Of course the Old Shillelagh is the place to be on weekends whether you’re looking for a good place to dance or just a place to chill and listen to awesome live Irish music. You can also pre-game at their parking lot parties before any Saturday Detroit Tigers home game this season and catch the free famous Shillelagh shuttle over to Comerica Park.

PS – If you see that famous green bus around the streets of downtown and are in need of a ride to Greektown, I’m told the driver, Bob, is usually more than willing to pull over and help you out, so just wave him down and tell him Broderick Tower sent ya!
