Eat here monthly. Staff is always friendly and fun. Food is superb. Beers and whisky are excellent. My restaurant of choice in Memphis, especially when a good sporting event is occurring. LOVE this place.

Hi Kevin! We are thrilled that Celtic Crossing is your restaurant of choice in Memphis! I completely agree that there is nothing better than sitting on our patio while watching a game with a nice, cold Guinness. In case you didn’t know, we open early for English Premier League on weekends. Come see us next game day! – DJ Naylor More

Came to listen to the DJ's. They mix well and keep you moving. Ordered fish and chips, some of the best I've ever tasted! Tried the red bull and rum frozen drink, awesome!

Hi Ameisha! We appreciate your review! I’m so glad you enjoyed our Frozen Red Bull Slushie. Nothing beats this Memphis summer heat quite like a refreshing frozen drink. Next time you come in, I suggest trying the Frozen Irish Coffee, another one of our new frozen treats. We hope to see you soon! – Cheers, DJ More

We asked a few locals where they hang out, and we were told about Celtic Cross in the Cooper-Young neighborhood. Celtic Cross has a nice pub atmosphere with authentic pub food. I had the beer battered fish and chips, which was delicious. The menu has many traditional Irish pub selections and the full bar is always good! The service was... More

Hi, Nez! We’re so glad you were able to try us out during your stay in Memphis. The fish and chips dish is always a good choice, and it’s definitely one of my favorites as well. If you liked the traditional Irish pub selections, you should stop in and try the corned beef bites or Irish nachos next time you’re... More

Ate a late lunch here. Food was really good in my opinion. Sausage coddle was really good as well as the mussels and Rueben sandwich. Had a nice cold beer as well. Would definitely go back!

We went to watch some soccer, grab some pints, and some delicious brunch out on the patio. Great music and ambiance! We cannot wait to come back!

Corned beef? I could have gotten a better sandwich from Walmart! Dry, cheap deli meat. Skimpy portions and they just can't cook y'all.

I assure you that your next experience will be better than your first. We updated our menu last summer, and since then, one of the most popular dishes has been the fish... More

I was walking around Cooper St. and just went there to have a beer, watch the movement on the street. There is a good patio, good selection of draft beers and typical pub food.

Thank Guilherme U
Derek N, Owner at Celtic Crossing, responded to this review

Hi, Guilherme! We’re happy you got a chance to pop into Celtic. Sitting out on the patio is my favorite thing to do at the pub. Here in the Cooper-Young District, there’s always a good atmosphere outside. The menu may come off as the typical pub food, but the taste is head and shoulders above the rest. Hope you got... More

Hi Juanma​! We appreciate the review, and very glad you stopped in during a game! Now that the "futbol" Americano season is over, you should come by to watch the other kind of "futbol" match.

We went here for lunch just prior to yesterday's Liberty Bowl. The pub is an easy 4 or 5 block walk from the west side of the Memphis U. campus. It was crowded, as we expected, but it was still friendly and the servers were harried but attentive. We both had fish and chips, which consisted of 2 battered cod... More

Celtic Crossing is located in an old house in the historic Cooper/Young district. While maintaining the cool and charm of the architecture they have transformed this residence into a really cool Irish pub. The covered front yard is where the main action occurs since they have heaters and full service bar located outside. The food was really good, if you... More
