The Star and Shamrock is a New York- style deli and traditional Irish pub. Sound like a contradiction? Jewish and Irish cultures, celebrated (and tormented!), have more in common than you'd think! Misery loves company-- Oy Vey! So come in and enjoy the best of both in one place!
Jewish deli meets Irish pub meets my bottomless pit of a stomach.
They no longer make the Clogger (RIP), but Bullfrog Bagels are excellent.
This place is great, but a snakebite is lager & cider, not lager & Guinness. Also, the homemade "matzo"rella sticks are killer.
The star and shamrock sandwich is the probably the world's most perfect sandwich.
Irish Jewish pub, how lovely! 🍀
Made in one shaker and in one pour Sarah produced all the distinct colors. Sarah is badass!! Go see Sarah. lol
Get a Crunkcake!
One of the few places in DC that had Brooklyn Blue Point Lager
Unique blend of Irish and Hebrew foods and drinks
The chairs are perilous and the situation is tenuous but it's all good.
Solid bar food.
Dj played lil boosie?? Best bar music ever
Great DJ, too
$5 Reuben's on Wednesdays after 4. Don't miss this.
This Irish pub is also a Jewish deli. Yes, really. It's also got three (3!) Wi-Fi networks, all free, and none of them have passwords. Yes, really. Best of all, the wifi is actually fast. Yes, really.
All of the bread is made in house so try on of the build your own sandwiches! My fav is the rare roast beef.
Come by Monday nights for trivia! Check in, let the host know what team you're on and get some free points!
Latkes and applesauce=mmmm
Probably the only bar on H street that you can start drinking in at 11am weekdays!
Come join me every Wednesday Night for 1/2 Classic Reubens from 4p-midnight! (Dine-in only)
Star and Shamrock has partnered with Womply to offer $15 cash back after 3 visits!
Banana Bread Beer isn't on the menu, but it's so good
Excellent bartenders - friendly to regulars and competent folks, indifferent to assholes.
Don't come here on a crowded night. Bathrooms situation is not good
The shepherd's pie fries are unreal. No comparison to chili fries; they're just amazing!
Turkey on toasted sourdough with lettuce and tomato (mayo and provolone if you like). So simple. So good.
love the kosher cornies
Order the Clogger without reservation. It's a "sandwich," like the Grand Canyon is a "hole." Way beyond your expectations.
definitely try the brooklyn ipa if ales are your thing!
Incompetent bartenders, make sure you tell them when you order that's its an order.
Grab a he'brew beer and latke madness sandwich and get ready for the best night of your life.
The Concord (fried baloney) will blow your mind! The Clogger and the Reuben are also delicious. Say hi to Jay behind the bar...he's a swell fellow.
Order the bloody marys spicey!!!
Devour a Clogger, and then check yourself into the cardiac unit at Howard University Hospital.
Excellent potato pancakes - try them with both sour cream and applesauce.
The Latke Madness sandwich is ridiculously good. Latkes replace the rye bread in this riff-on-a-Reuben. YUM is all I gotta say!
peek the deli! The brine, cure and bake it right there! I do need to go back for the food. Not very vegetarian friendly (even though I'm not a vegetarian).
Good hot corned beef. Tell them to go easy on the butter though.
Try the latkes and the Reuben egg-rolls... Both are amazing!
Try the Brooklyn IPA.
Order the latkes. You won't be disappointed
