“Irish? I think not.”
Reviewed March 22, 2014

Maybe the night bar scene is better.
That said, the Celtic Fox is nothing special and a poor effort at an Irish pub. The food is bland with little attempt to create authentic Irish food. The menu is more akin to Applebee's and their ilk than a proper pub. The shepherds pie was ok, but the fish and chips was tasteless. The staff were friendly, but overworked. The bar appeared to offer many options for those desiring a pint to two. I might return for a beer, but will definitely eat elsewhere.

“Best! (Even if you're vegetarian!)”
Reviewed March 8, 2014 via mobile

Stopped by for an early dinner before a concert at TPAC.
2 adults and 1 child, enjoyed fish and chips, and a black bean salad, as well as soda and a couple pints. Food was great, service was great, too.

“Excellent Place to Stop for a Nice Pub Meal”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

My wife and I stopped here before the show at the Topeka Performing Arts Center, which is only a block away. It was not overly crowded and there was no wait. The service and food was excellent. I didn't notice until later that they had overcharged me for two beers, which were ordered during happy hour, but were paid for after happy hour. I would have rated them a five except for that. It is a pub environment with a bar and short menu - but really good food. My wife had a Shepard's pie, and I had a Rueben - both excellent. There were TV around with sports on. It was a bit noisey.

Reviewed January 10, 2014 via mobile

Love coming here! Great to meet business associates and entertain. Atmosphere is perfect with laid back staff and food. Drinks always mixed well and beer always cold. Will continue to be one of my go to locations for business and pleasure!
