“Good Lunch at Ceili's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

My husband and I had a late lunch at Ceili's today. We had never been to this pub before. I had fish tacos and my husband had the Thai noodle bowl. We were both happy with our choices...once they arrived! We found that the wait time from ordering to serving took longer than it should but, once the food arrived, it was very good. The service was excellent.

“Okay food, okay service, but nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I have to admit I was a bit underwhelmed by Ceili's Royal Oak. Newly opened, the decor is quite warm and inviting, and I was looking forward to some hearty pub fare. Our server was obviously new to the trade, but made up for her lack of experience with friendliness and enthusiasm. Our food was just average....the fish and chips were flavorful, but the presentation of the fish was disappointing, looking like two large rolled fish sticks. The fries were quite miniscule portion-wise and were extremely overcooked, to the point of being hard and crunchy. The beef dip was tasty, but was quite small compared to most others I've had, and was accompanied by the aforementioned overcooked fries. It took quite a while to get our drinks and food....there was nothing speedy about the service. Perhaps it will take some time for things to settle in....hopefully the quality and quantity of the food and the pace of service will improve in the future.
