Skosh Monahan’s Steakhouse & Irish Pub

Gary Monahan, current Costa Mesa Councilman, wanted to carry out his dad’s dream of owning a restaurant. In 2000, the dream became a reality with Skosh Monahan’s. A gathering place of many Orange County political minds, like Congressman Dana Rohrabacher and Assemblyman Allan Mansoor, after travelling back from their respective offices in Washington, DC or Sacramento, CA, they come for the food! Housed on Newport Boulevard with a view of the 55 freeway, Skosh Monahan’s exterior has the look of an office building, but once you get inside, it’s a very welcoming Irish pub, where everyone knows your name (like Cheers). With 15 plasma HDTVs adorning the bar area, there is plenty of room to spend with friends to root on your favorite team. Did I mention that they have 22 beers on tap! The dining room is modest and comfortable. The surprise is the food! It’s way more than just bar food and appetizers. You’ll see what I mean as you read on.

Irish Nachos

Irish Nachos are steak fries topped with melted cheese, bacon, and jalapenos. They were perfectly fried, crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. It was a different flavor with pickled jalapenos, carrots, and onion. They added a little Mexican flavor which is perfect for SoCal. The jalapenos had a kick to them, but added a nice flavor as well. Thumbs up!

Guinness Brats & Mash

Guinness Brats & Mash are brats cooked in Guinness and served with mashed potatoes. The brats really picked up the Guinness flavor by adding a caramelized taste from the beer. The brats had a nice texture and were juicy. The grill marks added a great char flavor that was just scrumptious. The mashed was textured with pieces of potato for that homemade feel and taste. The gravy was out of this world! It was rich and full of flavor. This gravy would work really well for a gravy fries appetizer (or French Canadian Poutine). Thumbs up, way up!

Rib Eye

Rib Eye (choice of grilled, blackened, or mesquite) and served with garlic mash or Irish Champ Potatoes, seasonal mixed vegetables and choice of merlot, garlic herb butter, or béarnaise. This beautiful piece of steak was tender, juicy and flavorful. The marbling on the steak was marvelous. The garlic butter added another dimension by enhancing the beef flavor of the steak. The veggies were steamed to perfection keeping their green color while not becoming soggy. Thumbs up, way up!
