Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, adjoining an Irish pub (O'Connell's), but they're separate establishments. Shillelagh was built in 1911, offering healthy cuisine with a very charming patio option, housing the Long Beach Heritage Museum's "The Great Balboa Film Studio" exhibit. Shillelagh's full of delectible surprises (meaty and meatless)--creative soups, salads, and desserts--many vegetarian/vegan options and unexpected delights, that is, a friendly atmosphere with daily specials, even a pet friendly patio (dogs eat free), along with beer, wine, and vegetarian options.
