Meehans, 371 New York Ave, Huntington.

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.
Sapsuckers, 287 Main Street, Huntington. Be sure to check out their "Field Guide to Beer" and order their famous "Alabama Sloppy Hammer" sandwich.
Just Off The Parade Route
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.
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...
McKeown's Pub, 1 Clinton Ave, Huntington. Replaces former Mary Carroll's but keeps the great vibe and enjoyable outdoor bar area. They are the spot for the proper pint of guinness.
Rust & Gold- 70 Gerard Street, Huntington, This place is all about good food, good drinks and good times. Located in the former home of Rookies, this spot is a Huntington must-stop and the locals rave about the creative menu items and drinks. Get in the St. Paddy's day mood with a corned beef & kraut egg roll.
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...
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.
