Meehan’s Public House is a small chain of 3 restaurants, owned by the 101 Concepts group. There is one in Sandy Springs, Vinings, and one downtown. This  day I went to the one in Sandy Springs, though at the time it wasn’t a first choice. I was, nonetheless, glad to have this pub as a second choice.

The menu is fairly plain pub food with a nod to English/Irish dishes. You’ll find things like shepherd’s pie and bangers and mash here. They have good large buffalo wings, and they have plenty of options in their burgers. They have a bison burger, for one, and the day I arrived they had a lamb burger special. I ordered a salad and the lamb.

The salad came over well. Bit of walnuts added good fats, and the vinaigrette was welcome as well. The lamb burger looked plain, but with a rich lamb taste and a healthy bit of goat cheese between the bread, delivered big time on flavor. I asked for a knife and a doggie bag, as this one was a bit much for me at lunch. Bun size alone would have me cutting this burger in half.

Counting taps, there were something like 15 in this pub. Ales, ciders, and good beers seemed to pattern the drink mix. The interior was rich in wood and large flat screens. Almost all the screen action was on fútbol, or what Americans call soccer. It seemed appropriate for what is an Irish themed bar. Service, all told, was excellent, despite the small crowd the day and time I arrived (very late lunch).

Verdict: Nice neighborhood bar with an Irish theme. Food looks plain, delivers on flavor. Recommended.
