Nice selection of beers on tap.

Just stopped by for refreshments. Yum. St Patrick's Day would be fantastic here. Irish bar setting just like in the old country across the Atlantic. Plenty of TV's to watch your favorite game.

Another favorite stop on Alki. We've never been disappointed here. Love the Reuben sandwich or shepherds pie. The drinks are great too. Save room for dessert. Worth the drive!

Whether you live in the neighborhood or you're visiting from far, far away, go to Alki and have Happy Hour at Celtic Swell. And, we can only hope, you get there before they run out of the salmon bites. Four bucks!! fresh salmon chunks in a light batter with a little Franks Hot Sauce. And then stay for the best... More

Just three little words describe the new menu at the Celtic Swell - "TO DIE FOR!!!!" What a great find on a sunny West Seattle weekend. We tried the Salmon Bites (bite sized pieces of tempura salmon with homemade buffalo sauce and chipotle aioli ....YUM!) available @ happy hour. The other treat was the Lamb Irish Stew (tasted like a... More

The Celtic Swell Irish Pub and Restaurant is fantastically situated on Alki Beach. It's looks northwest out across beautiful Puget Sound., its American and Irish flags proudly flying. And if the view, the wood bar of Honduran mahogany, or the outdoor beer garden does not entice you to visit, the taps of Guinness, Harp, Smithwuck, and a vast array of... More

Full of anticipation we went to the Celtic Swell for a meal. Our hopes of a good evening were dashed as we realised it was never going to come up to our expectations .Why not? The service was awful,although the waitress did her best. We waited 30minutes for our ORDER to be taken,then a further 20 minutes for each individual... More

Very cold beer & good food. The tv' s were very noisy but I've come to expect that! The service was great-- very fast and super attentive. Good location but no parking which is true of all Alki beach restaurants.

We recently moved to purchased a home in West Seattle and have been trying Alki restaurants. We rarely saw much activity here in the early evening when we eat so this was one of the last places that we have tried. The restaurant has an Irish pub feel but food and service left much to be desired. Food took about... More
