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!

    They no longer make the Clogger (RIP), but Bullfrog Bagels are excellent.

    Dan Miller · November 22, 2014
  • Stephanie D.

    This place is great, but a snakebite is lager & cider, not lager & Guinness. Also, the homemade "matzo"rella sticks are killer.

    Stephanie D · September 22, 2014
  • Tim S.

    The star and shamrock sandwich is the probably the world's most perfect sandwich.

    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.

    The shepherd's pie fries are unreal. No comparison to chili fries; they're just amazing!

    Andrea Bonk · August 14, 2011
  • Devon S.

    Turkey on toasted sourdough with lettuce and tomato (mayo and provolone if you like). So simple. So good.

    Devon Steven · August 1, 2011
  • Meg S.

    love the kosher cornies

    Meg Slachetka · July 22, 2011
  • Jim

    Order the Clogger without reservation. It's a "sandwich," like the Grand Canyon is a "hole." Way beyond your expectations.

    Jim · June 4, 2011
  • Willie L.

    definitely try the brooklyn ipa if ales are your thing!

    Willie Lo Lo · April 5, 2011
  • Tim L.

    Incompetent bartenders, make sure you tell them when you order that's its an order.

    Tim L · January 16, 2011

    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.

    ian hall · November 6, 2010

    Devour a Clogger, and then check yourself into the cardiac unit at Howard University Hospital.

    Ardvaark · September 25, 2010
  • Mandy J.

    Excellent potato pancakes - try them with both sour cream and applesauce.

    Mandy Jenkins · September 20, 2010
  • Jen K.

    The Latke Madness sandwich is ridiculously good. Latkes replace the rye bread in this riff-on-a-Reuben. YUM is all I gotta say!

    Jen Karr · July 1, 2010
  • Chuq Y.

    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.

    Jay Leach · April 30, 2010
  • Bobby T.

    Try the latkes and the Reuben egg-rolls... Both are amazing!

    Bobby T · April 24, 2010

    Try the Brooklyn IPA.

    Chad Lorenz · April 21, 2010

    Order the latkes. You won't be disappointed
