Skosh Monahan’s Steakhouse & Irish Pub where political minds feed their hunger in Costa Mesa, CA

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 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!
