Are you going to be wearing green on March 11th and 17th? If you have a celebratory bone in your body, you will want to check out one or more of these fine establishments in the Huntington area.

** Please note that Huntington’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade is on Sunday March 11th but that St. Patrick’s Day is on Saturday March 17th.**

All the pubs and restaurants in Huntington will be celebrating both days. WOW, two St. Paddy’s days… the Five Harbors area is lucky.

Also if you want to help others feel lucky, sign up for the Townwide Fund's St. Patrick's Charity Run

Here are some pubs and restaurants/bars you may want to visit. And while you’re doing a crawl, count your blessings – because Irish or not, we are all lucky to live here!

F.H. Riley’s, 400 New York Ave, Huntington.  Riley’s is a slightly more upscale Irish bistro with a great bar and absolutely outstanding salads.  Try the Crackling Calamari and a beer – heaven.  If you’re really hungry, get the Salmon Napoleon. If you’re done crawling, eat dessert. If not, move on.

Katie Mcs and Nags Head are right on the parade route. Nags Head has doors that open up on to NY Ave, a perfect viewing spot as long as you are there early. These bars will be sure to keep libations cold and on-going! Venture on down the way to grab some Irish grub…

Porto Fino… Supplement your liquid diet before, during or after the parade with their signature corned beef and cabbage slice and don’t forget to dip in to the spicy mustard! This isn’t available all year so make a point to give it a try!

Meehans, 371 New York Ave, Huntington. With the slogan “Meet, Eat, and Drink” this Modern Irish bar and restaurant, right on the St. Patrick’s parade route, is an easy stop to meet up or gather the troops. Dive into a classic Irish dish like corned beef and cabbage or pull up a stool at the huge bar and grab a Guinness. There’s still much crawling to do so after a rest …head on out.

Finnegans, 5 Wall Street, Huntington.  We love to come here for burgers all the time.  They have great food, sticky floors and lots of Irish beers. It is truly the place “where everybody knows your name.”  Which is impressive, since they were established in 1913 and that’s a lot of people to remember.  So stop by and do something memorable.

Finley’s, 43 Greene Street, Huntington.  Another favorite place where “the beer’s always cold and the staff is always warm”.  Love the barbecue baby back ribs along with one of the 32 draughts and over 65 bottled beers. Keep moving- there’s music to listen to…

Christopher’s Courtyard Cafe, 8 Wall Street, Huntington.  Stop in for great bar food  and outdoor dining on patio with DJ on day of parade. Move on over to…

Sapsuckers, 287 Main Street, Huntington.  Be sure to check out their “Field Guide to Beer” and order their famous “Alabama Sloppy Hammer” sandwich.

Rookie’s Sports Club, 79 Gerard Street, Huntington.  Order the wings and peppercorn burger!  Be sure to get a booth with your own TV.  You may never want to leave.

Mary Carroll’s, 1 Clinton Ave, Huntington.  Where a local caters to locals and Travelers alike.  You can even BYOF (bring your own food). Enjoy a big screen tv in the Beer Garden, outside covered patio, while enjoying a Harp or Smithwicks on Tap.

Black and Blue Huntington, 65 Wall Street. Continue your crawl over to this great restaurant and be sure to try their bar menu with delicious South Paw Nachos and ask for the corned beef and cabbage egg rolls!

The Shamrock, 138 New York Ave, Halesite, (across from Huntington Harbor). This long-time family-owned establishment is a popular local hangout with great pot roast, pool tables and a really fun atmosphere.  If you stop by, you may not want to leave and that’s okay.

Napper Tandy’s, 229 Laurel Rd, Northport. Okay, at this point, you may be toast, and if so we don’t want you on the road driving to Northport.  But Napper Tandy’s is a great Irish pub with many classic Irish dishes including fish and chips and shepherd’s pie. Look for specials on food and drink along with traditional and modern Irish music all night every Sunday.

For those celebrating at home, be sure to get all your party refreshments at Shoreline Beverage and Harbor Beverage – famous for their selection of beers on tap and growlers.
