was there past Saturday night bartender was horrible and sat there after her shift and drank 2 beers and 2 shots replacement wasn't much better but a lot nicer. Group of young kids came in music got changed instantly like they ran the place walking behind bar etc. Lots of people came in and walked out immediately due to service.... More

Celtica is right off the main road in Newport (America's Cup Ave) and is on the way back to parking or on your way from the Visitors Center to Newport. The food is good - great deals on the raw bar and the drinks are very reasonably priced, especially for the area. It's a great place to hang out.

We had dinner and drinks at this bar on a Sunday night. The limited bar food menu was reasonably priced and tasted fairly good. They had a limited number of beers on tap. The tables had the two person seats that were cool, and the World Cup played on the multiple screens. The big drawback was one person was in... More

Celtica Public House is my regular stop in Newport. This place is where the locals go. Good beer, people and food -- next to the Marriott on the water. Their food ranges below the teens where a lobster roll across the street for the tourists costs $22 when a whole Maine lobster runs $6. And, there's more of that as... More

great little pub off the beaten path with comfy leather sofas and great draughts! Bartender was friendly and didn't mind when we moved some tables around to accommodate a large-ish group of folks.

My wife and I visited Celtica during a one day, one night trip to Newport. We had visited this place a year or so ago and wanted to return. Nothing has changed during our last visit and I say that in a positive way. The food is good, standard bar food and the prices (for both food and drink) are... More
