“Very good pub food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

The food was brilliant, especially the burger. A small problem is that the pub is quite noisy, with a lot of hard surfaces that reflect and intensifies noise.

Thank you for your kind review. Yes, the Celt pub can get very loud, especially during soccer games. The Celt is quite like a Dublin Pub or an over active child whereas if you go next door to the Harp Pub, it has lower ceilings with wood floors and will remind you of the pubs in the villages of central Ireland and is quiet and more laid back. The good child if you may.

Both pubs share the same kitchen and offer the same great Irish/British cuisine. So we offer you the best of both worlds for your pub and dining experience.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us and we will pass your review to both the front and back of the house so they know how they are doing as a team to enhance your experience with us.

“Great Little Pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

This is a neat little place. Great beer on tap, good food and cool vibe. My wife and I stopped by here really quick during our anniversary weekend getaway to Orlando. The staff was super friendly and quick. I forgot my expensive sunglasses on my seat, didn't even realize it. The bartender came running out with them. Good job! We'll definitely stop back for a pint and some Scotch eggs. If you like soccer this pub must be a dream come true.... I highly recommend!

“A Proper English Pub!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

I've been here quite often. The place has an authentic feel to it. TV monitors and one gigantic screen play soccer just about all the time. Great draft beer selection. The food is good. And speaking of food - Oh! The nachos...WOW!!! Take a look at my pic. It's a artery clogging, hear stopping platter that will let you enjoy your slow demise...just kidding, but seriously they are darn good!

Great location. Right in the downtown Orlando area. Within walking distance to everything. And the staff is quite attentive.

This place is so good Barack Obama visited it one time when he was in town. He literally went in and literally had a beer with a few folks in the bar...C'mon!! How cool is that!!

“Beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

There's nothing that sucks about the Celt. The wings are perfect (Louisiana hot sauce, whiskey, butter...the correct combination), the imperial pints of Guinness are poured correctly, and the atmosphere is great. As long as you are okay with constant ball-busting, football, loud talk and beer. And who isn't, right?

Check out the weekly food specials. I've never had bad food here. The Irish nachos can be too salty sometimes (and I love salt). But, still good. And everything else is really quite good. Again...the wings are excellent.

But, save room for 5 or 6 Guinness for dessert.
