Celtica...a local favorite

This is an old, kind of crusty bar which we found to be a local favorite. Don't look for fancy here but it's a great place for a beer and lobster roll while meeting locals. The tee shirts have an attractive logo. We bought one.

What I liked about this place...hmmm, that would have to be the beer. Yes, Newport in the summer is a tourist mecca, but am I mistaken that servers make their money from .....customers? How about a greeting? A smile? A "I'll will be with you in a minute?" Apparently, the tables with dirty glasses and plates needed more attention than... More

as strange as this may sound, this off-the-beaten-track pub may have been our favorite place to eat. the food is fantastic...fresh & delicious! the decor was super comfy! the staff was great! wanted to go back to try more of the menu but ran out of time...we will absolutely go back!

Cool bar with nice bar tenders and a decent beer selection. Was staying in the hotel above it and would rather drink in a local bar than a hotel bar and you can't go wrong with this place.

It was a Sunday night and very empty with only two other people in the establishment. We had our kids with us expecting to get them non-alcolohilic piña coladas...however, they had no fixins for any kind of piña coloda, alcoholic or otherwise. They didn't even have apple juice! What made the experience worse was the music playing - all rap... More

We arrived late at our hotel on a Saturday. It was raining hard and we were hungry. The hotel suggested the Celtica. We weren't too sure when we first went in since it was a bit noisy but the staff were very friendly and the fish and chips was fantastic. Washed down with a local beer. Heaven.

Had a great inexpensive lunch at the pub. It is located on the side street from the Marriott. Try the Steak Bomb Sandwich.

This pub was close to where we were staying - seems like a local hangout. The seats are like thrones set up high, interesting to get out of after a few beers, I would think! We just had a drink in there which was ok.

This was exactly what I needed. It is not a tourist spot, but a locals hangout. The food choice, taste and value were excellent for me. I had a little trouble deciding, but went with the stuffed coal hog which was perfect. Whenever I'm in an Irish pub, Guiness is my choice, so no disappointment there. The prices were the... More
