I looked at the Open Table list of restaurants for a place for our small (6 people) group to dine and found Skosh Monahan's, an Irish pub with a 4.2 rating. I checked out the menu and it looked like a great place for us. All of the reviews I read mentioned the great food, especially the steaks. The six of us all had different dishes, ranging from salads to a rib eye (I had the rib eye). Not a single one of us enjoyed our meal. Two sent their meals back, my steak was tough and the sauce was bland. One person ordered a full rack of ribs, planning to bring half of it home. She ate three ribs and left the rest. The waitress (who was very good) apologized for "the new chef," but no accommodation was offered. Can't recommend this place.

We wanted to watch the final World Cup game, and Skosh's was just the place to enjoy a delicious Lamb Chop lunch special and watch Germany defeat Argentina in extra time! Perfect afternoon!

It really is surprising to find such good food at a pub. We go there with our baby. They are so nice and accommodating. It is great

This was the first time at Skosh Monahan's. The restaurant is equally divided with a small bar but it totally works. The menu is a nice compliment of seafood, steaks, chicken and pastas. I had a steak which was absolutely delicious. The steak was served with garlic mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables. I was pleasantly surprised at the whole experience of ambiance and food. The owner came over and introduced himself and he was very nice and inviting to him establishment.

We dropped in for a late night burger, and I decided to try their "Corned Beef Burger". I was impressed, a tasty combination of burger, corned beef, grilled onions and bell peppers, and cheese. I'll definitely be back for one of those!

Really enjoyed our first experience. Good food. A tad expensive but good enough that it was a good value. Worth the price. Great beer and liquor selection (didn't check the wine list).

Would recommend and will be back.

Great job.

always a great place to drop in, have a bite to eat, watch a favourite sport (or the Olympics!), and see friendly faces.

We made a reservation for Valentine's Day. My hubby and I were at a seminar in Irvine and it was on our way home. The seminar let out way early, but we stopped at Skosh's to see if we could change our time. They did not have any booths available but were happy to seat us in the bar at a high top. We were cool with that. They apologized a couple of times, but it was our bad, showing up an hour and a half early! The food was good and our bottle of wine was nice and reasonably priced. Chocolate creme brulee was the bomb.
Only drawback is they looked to be short staffed. Things took awhile and there was some confusion on a change to the order. But we had a great time, and the bar was a cool place to hangout. We'd love to come back!

We mainly go for the quality of the food, the drinks and friendly service, but do enjoy the sports bar atmosphere that it is noted for as well.....For Valentines Day the food as always was delicious, however there was a large crowd and they were obviously understaffed....the wait was very long after we ordered. A salad was cancelled as it didn't arrive prior to the meal. We've had great experiences in the past at Skosh Monahans, so we would still recommend this restaurant to others... .I just really hate to complain to waiters about their oversights when our evening is predicated on having a wonderful experience overall....
