Good food, drinks and music

A nice menu, that includes traditional Irish dishes, reasonably priced drinks , attentive staff and live music on the weekends. Although the dance floor is small, there's plenty of room to move to the music.

The lighting was a little dark for lunch time. The burger was awesome. I was full when I left and the service was friendly.

This place is a bar with bar food ....but good bar food. I had the Rueben and it was very good. It's a little scary walking into because it's very old but after you walk in and get seated you realize that the place is kept very clean.

Driving in from Dallas (a 7+ hour trek) we looked up "Night Spot" restaurants in Topeka and found Celtic Fox near the top of the list. Arriving 10 minutes after 9pm, we were informed "the kitchen closes at 9pm". So people are supposed to sit around drinking for 5 hours without eating? Is that even responsible? Te be fair, they...

The food is very good and the appetizers are great if you just want to stop in for appetizers and a drink (great onion rings!!). Not much of a selection of wine but they have a good selection of beer on tap.

My office is directly across the street from the Celtic Fox and I have eaten many times there both for lunch and after work over the last 8 years. Food, service and atmosphere have always been decent with some days better than others but over the last 6 months everything has gone down hill. Service and food have been getting... More

A group of about 18 visited for a late lunch Saturday the 26th. There were not many other patrons around, however a party was taking place in the back room. Our server/bartender was attentive and patient as our group arrived in shifts of 3-5 at a time. She had a lot going on and did it all with a smile.... More

I took some new employees downtown for lunch. After almost 20 minutes, I had the track down a waitress to place an order for drinks and we place our meal order at the same time since we had plenty of time to view the menu. 15 minutes later, no drinks (and we ordered water and tea)! Finally drinks but no... More

So the beer is good but the food is average. The fish and chips were too wet and not a high-quality fish filet - again, note the geographic location. Beer was cheap. Big screen TVs.
