+4 for cheap Guinness, but food is average

So the beer is good but the food is average. The fish and chips were too wet and not a high-quality fish filet - again, note the geographic location. Beer was cheap. Big screen TVs.

Family was visiting and we wanted to have lunch before a tour of the statehouse. The choices in downtown Topeka are few and far between. We ate at the Celtic Fox. It was adequate. They have a menu with some traditional Irish dishes.

Nice Irish pub type setting and located close to the capital building. The soup of the day was hearty, but the fish and chips meal was disappointing - soggy fries and greasy fish. The service was friendly, but slow.

The Celtic Fox has a nice menu selection and the food is good, pricing is right. Close to downtown with an outdoor eating area.

Very Very Good. Best Phliadelpia Sandwich with Gravy Dip I have ever had. We had a big group. Very accomodating for large group. Everyone from our group was very happy with their selections from the menu. Drinks were kept in front of you.

What a great place. We had been to the Capitol and wanted to walk somewhere for lunch. So glad that the people we asked recommended the Celtic Fox. Great sandwiches, cold beer and wonderful service. The portions are BIG and very tasty. We will definitely return the next time we are in Topeka.

We got there around 12:30. Seated eventually. It was obvious most of the people were there for business lunches. The place absolutely died at 1:00pm. We placed the order and waited.... and waited.... and waited. 20 minutes later, the waitress tells us the order got lost and they are just starting to make it. Another 10 minutes and our three...
