THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Meehan's Public House Restaurant Review

: All Meehan's outposts are inspired by the warm, wood-paneled interior of a classic Irish pub, and this one is no exception. Dimly lit spaces, however, don't portend gloom and doom, so expect a lively, rollicking atmosphere. Brian O'Rourke helms the kitchen at this unit as well as keeping an eye on corporate menu development. We like the pimento cheese-stuffed deviled eggs. Bear Creek Farms in north Georgia is the source of the grass-fed beef for the first-rate burger. Beef alternatives for burgers include bison and venison. Most satisfying is a soup of roasted acorn and crookneck squash with coconut milk. Or start in summer with a watermelon and feta salad with shaved radishes. Georgia's Springer Mountain chicken centers a comfort-fare plate with mashed potatoes and crispy fried Brussels sprouts. Blackened seared grouper was just a notch salty for our preferences, but the fish was fresh and sweet tasting. Real Irish fare includes lamb-based shepherd's pie for which the lamb is cooked in Guinness, traditional Irish breakfast which includes black-and-white pudding, and bangers and mash with local butcher Haywood's Provisions supplying the bangers. Cap it all off with a Jameson Irish Whiskey bread pudding. While there are wines available, in true pub spirit, suds are what you'd want with these meals.
