Our Story

Where It All Began

Shamrock Jack’s Irish Pub is a family-owned Irish Pub and Restaurant blending the magical spirit of Ireland with contemporary food and drink. We are located just a few minutes north of the City of Rochester in Sea Breeze, New York, a bustling resort community on the shores of beautiful Lake Ontario.

Established in August 2003, the Petzing family transformed a spacious Victorian home and ballroom dance studio into one of the best steak and seafood restaurants in upstate New York. The old-world, Irish charm of Shamrock Jack’s runs through the European-style back bar, hand-crafted booths, and warm, inviting dining rooms. Shamrock Jack’s has recently transformed into your local go-to Irish Pub for casual dining with family and friends. We received the commendation for Best Irish Pub in Rochester!

Spend the afternoon sipping pints on our expanded front porch or our back patio, enjoy live music until the wee hours in our charming Irish pub, or have a delightful dinner with family and friends in one of our warm, welcoming dining rooms. And don’t forget to visit our resident Leprechaun just inside the front entrance!

Awards & Recognition

SHAMROCK JACK’S WINS ROCHESTER ROCS!

 

It’s been voted the best Irish pub in the Rochester area and now the family that owns Shamrock Jack’s say they feel honored and humbled.

Owners say it’s the kind, welcoming family atmosphere that keeps customers loyal along with the made-from-scratch shepherd’s pie.

The Petzing family renovated an old house and turned it into a bar and built everything from the ground up. Those are just some of the many reasons why they won Rochester Rocs.

Mike Petzing said, “To be recognized with this kind of award kind of makes us look back at the last 10 years that we’ve been here and it kind of makes it all worth it. We put literally blood, sweat and tears in here.”

“A Favorite "Go-To" that never disappoints”

"Now newly renovated, Shamrock Jack's is a friendly spot frequented by those who enjoy a casually delightful bar and wonderful selections, from bar food to fine dining, all nicely prepared. Prices are very reasonable. We've eaten there over a dozen times and look forward to returning again soon!"

"Delightful"

"It was a very busy Friday night, but we were seated right away, in the "library". Our server Tiara was at our table almost immediately, and was very attentive in spite of handling many other diners. My husband had the Philly cheesesteak and he said it was very, very good. A fun pub, with lots of nooks and crannies. We have enjoyed many other lunches and dinners there, and will continue to go back for the food & atmosphere."
