My mom always said "Do not eat at an empty restaurant." and she is absolutely right. We came here on Valentine's Day and there was no one in the place and when we left there was only one other occupied table. The waitress was friendly, but inattentive and at one point we went searching for her but was unable to... More

We've been to this restaurant several time. The food each time has been very good, great service and reasonably priced. It's bit off the beaten trail, so I forget about going there as frequently as I normally might. The establishment has the feel of an old neighborhood bar, kind of cozy and fun. Give it a try....I think you'll like... More

What do you get when you cross an Irish pub with good ole Louisiana cooking? Celtic Bayou! Very low key during the day for lunch...much more animated at night. Best bread pudding around! Want Irish...have bangers and mash (although the peas should be "smashed") Prefer cajun? Jumbalaya, gumbo, etouffe, and catfish area all good. Also burger and some sandwiches. Good... More

Great service and good food. I am all about the service these days, it is becoming lost and it is sad. The food was good, they were good with our kids and we had an activ waiter who was fun but did not over stay his welcome

Hubby had the jambalaya, very nicely seasoned. Most of us had burgers and beer. It was warm 92 F, so we enjoyed the cool atmosphere and great bar food.

I was pointed to Celtic Bayou by a friend; and it was a very good recommendation. Service was very good. We were promptly greeted by our waitress; and she was always around if we needed anything. The menu is a fusion of Irish and Cajun food; and it offers a wide variety of choices, including burgers, sandwiches, gumbo, and of... More

Blended in that both styles are available. Spicy Cajun pasta with sausage and shrimp a good example. Not overly spiced but well balanced, raised a few eyebrows when I licked the plate. Ok, I didn't but was tempted. The jambalaya was moist with ample shrimp and oysters. Again well seasoned. The original founders have since moved on with the current... More

This is not fine dining but it was wonderful food! There were 7 of us and we had everything from Celtic to Cajun. It was all good. Very happy with this choice.

Wife and I go to CB for the bangers and mashed. Atmosphere could use some upgrades but the food is what keeps bringing us back. Had the special last time I was in - amazing. Beer selection is always excellent as well. Whether you like Irish or Cajun food - can't go wrong with anything on the menu.

The food here is good, the atmosphere is fun, and the service is strong. However, access and parking is terrible so get there early for lunch or hit the Lynnwood location.
