Luck of the Irish on Norwegian Epic

O'Sheehan's Burger
My husband Mel would tell you that I’m not a top-of-the-morning person and until I get my coffee I can be cranky. While room service is a good option, getting out for a good breakfast is an important start to the day so I try my best to not be a mean old crab in the buffet line. Mel likes buffets and I don’t so we’ve discovered a compromise here aboard Norwegian Epic that makes us both happy. Instead of a sit down breakfast in the dining room, which Mel considers too formal, we’ve discovered breakfast in O’Sheehan’s Irish Pub. The scrambled eggs, bacon, and hash browns in the Express Breakfast option are just what I like with a glass of juice and coffee. Other options are a Country Platter with eggs fried or scrambled and bacon or sausage, baked beans, a grilled tomato, and sautéed mushrooms; Homemade Corned Beef Hash with eggs; Create Your Own Omelet with popular fillings; and French Toast. Breakfast arrives with a Bakery Basket filled with muffins, pastries, and croissants.

O’Sheehan’s is also a hit with us for casual lunches with traditional pub grub (fish ’n chips) and comfort food (meatloaf and pot pie), as well as corned beef, grilled chicken, and tuna melt sandwiches, hot dogs, salads, and a classic burger with cheese and bacon.

Best of all is that O’Sheehan’s is always open and I can get the Chocolate Brownie Sundae—a brownie, topped with walnuts, ice cream, and chocolate sauce—anytime I crave it. Well, even better is that there is no charge for the food in O’Sheehan’s. We also recommend it for a mid-morning Bloody Mary.
