Grabbed a quick bite to eat after visit to Central Florida History Center. Both had the Cottage Pie - very tasty and a most generous portion. Potato tips perfectly browned.b came with a roll & butter. Also both had a pint of Smithwick's Ale. No room for dessert but brought home a bread pudding for later. Will definitely return and likely walk over from Amway Center. $46 with tax and 20% tip. Very quiet at 2PM - expect a lively crowd after work and when soccer on TVs.

During the World cup this place has been packed. The crowd here is a bit older but it can still get pretty packed on busy days. The drink specials are pretty good. They have most of the typical Irish beers on draft. The food is also very good. They have rotating specials which are all very good. From the regular menu the shepherds pie is a must. The portions are pretty large so be ready to get a lot of food for a pretty good price. If you are coming here to watch any sporting event, make sure to come early to get a good spot. There isn't that many tables so it does fill up pretty fast.

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.

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!

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!!
