Meehan’s Pub is one of the go-to spots for Irish fare in Atlanta, and there are five locations around the city. Their shepherd’s pie features a Guinness braised leg of lamb along with veggies, red wine gravy, and, of course, a mashed potato jacket. At $15.25, it’s reasonably priced as well. Enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and outdoor seating at the Sandy Springs location.

Historic Roswell is a charming part of town if you are looking for a great spot for a family dinner. Expect your standard Irish pub fare including, naturally, a shepherd’s pie that is full and hearty. If you’re in search of a quieter night out, head here during the week, as it can get rowdy on the weekends with a college crowd. In warmer weather, get there early to snag a table outside.

The Olde Blind Dog bills its shepherd’s pie as “Not your great-great-great grandmother’s Old World recipe.” It also promises that this is “the best shepherd’s pie you never had but always wanted.” With claims like that, it had better be great, right? Stop by the pub on the 17th of any month, as that is “St. Practice Day,” where the pub prepares for the big party in March with live music and giveaways.

So, The Bat and Ball isn’t anything fancy, and, yeah, it’s located in a strip mall. But if you’re in Brookhaven and craving some pub fare, this is a great little spot. Their shepherd’s pie features New Zealand lamb, veggies and a topper of mashed potatoes for $14. You’re likely to meet some friendly neighborhood folks if you head here for your full flavor fare.

Decatur, GA 30030
Decatur is a great part of town for most types of cuisines, so of course there is a yummy Irish pub. The Marlay House serves up a shepherd’s pie with beef, peas, carrots, onions and a cheddar mash. So it’s slightly different than the lamb version offered at most pubs. At $10, it’s one of the best bargains on the list, especially considering the neighborhood.
