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...More

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.

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.

Family was visiting and we wanted to have lunch before a tour of the statehouse. The choices in downtown Topeka are few and far between. We ate at the Celtic Fox. It was adequate. They have a menu with some traditional Irish dishes.

Nice Irish pub type setting and located close to the capital building. The soup of the day was hearty, but the fish and chips meal was disappointing - soggy fries and greasy fish. The service was friendly, but slow.
