Great for a beer and a sandwich ~ love the cheese steak! Decent selection of draft and bottles beers. Just a basic, unassuming bar. Staff are friendly and efficient. A good place to hang out.

I go here with my girlfriend a lot and I usually just get the chicken wings. But the waitress told me I should try the ruben cause I wanted something different. It was all that! I only ate half and took the rest home. They make there own corned beef, don't ask me how but they do it. The fries... More

I got the fish and chips which was mostly the breading. It tasted like the grease had not been changed in a very long time. When I bit into the fish the grease just ran. The person with me ordered a corned beef sandwich which contains a very small amount of meat and was lunch meat not fresh cooked. Won't... More

We went on a Sat night for dinner at 7:30pm and it wasn't that busy (4 tables). We ordered the junk yard hand cut fries ($8) which were really good and loaded with cheese and quite filling. Hubby got the bangers & mash ($14) and he said they gave him a bigger portion this time. He was still hungry when... More

Both visits to Celtic Pub were takeout orders. My first visit was an order of chicken fingers and I waited at the bar with some much older people who were clearly drunk. Their conversation left me feeling uneasy, as I'm from out of state and don't frequent bars. When I left, I shrugged it off, determined not to let it... More

Recently saw some positive postings on Facebook, and decided to give it a try. Glad we did. Stopped for lunch. There were 4 in our group, and all were happy with meal choices - chicken pot pie, roast pork sandwich, steamed shrimp, and banger egg and cheese sandwich. Kettle chips were good. Sat at bar. Not overly large bar area,... More

My nephew and I stopped at this pub for an early lunch. We were greeted as soon as we walked in the door. The bartender was our server, notably because we arrived as they opened the door. He was very pleasant and effecient. We ordered three crab dishes and each one was delicious. The handcut fries with crab dip was... More

This past valentine's day was a snow-filled terror so we couldn't go to our initial plans but before we gave up I suggested just going somewhere local and this was the closest restaurant so in we went.... It was halfway filled with couples and there was a live band playing and it was so romantic. We got there late and... More

Stopped by for my birthday and had a great time! Enjoyed an order of perfectly cooked wings, and a great Cesar side salad. The burgers and homemade specials are also excellent choices. This is not your typical bar food. Fresh local vegetables and ingredients, local spices from Stonefly, and attention to food preparation make this place stand out. The new... More

Description
Not your ordinary Irish Pub. Here at The Celtic we feature a great selection of house made Irish and American dishes with eclectic menu additions. Ladies night on Wednesday, "Live and Local" at The Celtic on Friday, features a great collection of local and regional artists. Trivia and Karaoke on Thursday and Karaoke on Saturday.

A good portion of the menu is house made like our hand cut fries,crab cakes, roast beef, corned beef and hot roast pork. Great food, great prices, and a friendly staff and atmosphere!
