St. Patrick’s Day is just a couple of days away and while the annual Detroit parade celebrating the luck of the Irish has been canceled, you can still celebrate with authentic food and drink. Plenty of Irish restaurants in Metro Detroit are serving dine-in and carryout customers this St. Patrick’s Day, so you can safely enjoy your favorite pub on the biggest Irish holiday of the year. Partake in a plate of corned beef and cabbage, shepherd’s pie, ale and more in Metro Detroit this St. Patrick’s Day.

A local favorite in Farmington, John Cowley & Sons will be providing food service on St. Patrick’s Day, starting with breakfast at 8 a.m. and a full menu starting at 12 p.m. Their entire dinner menu plus corned beef and cabbage will be available. The first floor and outdoor patio (weather permitting) will be reserved for dine-in customers.

McShane’s Pub & Whiskey Bar

Located in Detroit’s Corktown neighborhood, McShane’s Pub & Whiskey Bar is holding a patio party on St. Patrick’s Day to commemorate the official opening on their “McTiki Bar.” Special drinks, including a “shamrock slush” and green beer will be served, along with brats, hot dogs, burgers, chicken and, of course, corned beef and cabbage.
