When I was there, I ordered the fish and chips. Great! A little expensive but worth the money. Good beer selection also. Worth a try for sure

I have never NEVER been treated so poorly in all my life EVER!! I normally attend the Celtic with a group of friends once a month and I will NEVER attend here again. Firstly, they lost my credit card, which after 30 minutes of searching it

If you enjoy bad food, crappy drinks, and shocking service this is the place for you. Guaranteed to ruin your night.

I visited this taven on a Tuesday night catching up with some friends who were in town. My 1st impression was a good one, a nice long bar, bowling in the back, and nice decorations. Unfortunately things quickly went downhill.\r

I love The Celtic. The service is outstanding. Food is awesome and beer and scotch selection you cant beat. great place to have a party, especially because you can reserve rooms all to yourself.
sometimes looks slow, but when you consider the size of the place..... But when its busy its insanity. sometimes you have to wait a bit for your drink, but thats a price you pay when you go someplace where the crowd is packed in like sardines.
yes you can smoke there, they are a cigar bar after all, but delaneys next door is the non smoking bar. same food, same drinks, same staff and owners, only difference is the name and smoking policy.
you big babies cry because you cant buy Guiness, which is nothing more than a name. you can get it everywhere, why don't you sophisticate your palette and have a murphy's (a true Irish beer, not a sell out)

5 stars, well done guys,

by the way has anyone tried the awesome irish cofee's, best in town.

Pros: service,food, scotch selection

Cons: sometimes too busy and crowded

I had been told about this place for sometime because since it's so close to Coors Field in LoDo it gets a lot of business along with it's counterpart Delaney's. For what it's worth, the service is terrible at both places (expect to wait at least 10-20 minutes for a beer on any busy night) and the staff are rude. The prices are way too expensive for what they're worth. I guess they know they can jack things up because of their proximity to Coors. Due yourself a favor and head to Jackson's Hole if you're looking for a beer after the game (much cheaper and much friendlier staff). And, if you're looking for an Irish Pub head over to Katie Mullens on 16th and Court in Denver. The staff there is friendly, the prices are reasonable, and the food is great. Just my two cents.??

This place is ridiculous. I was there with my wife during the St Patrick's Day Parade, and yes it was understandably busy and we expected that, but that's not an excuse for the service we got. We arrived early in the morning and paid the $5/person cover charge, and were told to order food from a waitress. After 40 minutes of being blatantly ignored by the wait staff (even after getting in front of a waitress and asking if we could order and her actually dodging me) I told the manager my problem and he told me not to complain, and when I asked for our cover charge back he said "No way in Hell." Nice place. So we left, went to another nearby Irish bar which was actually busier yet still maintained quality service.
The Celtic is a joke and it's run by a bunch of incompetent people. I nor any of my friends will be going there again.

Pros: Decent Bartender

Cons: Poor Service, Poor Management, Bad Smell

I have been going to The Celtic ever since it first opened around 8-9 years ago. It may not be fully "authentic Irish", but it is certainly more so than "Faux-do" (Fado) near Coors Field. They have a great selection of beers, the ambience is very casual, and (if you happen to smoke), it's just about the only game in town (unless you want to fork over wads of cash to watch strippers at The Diamond Cabaret, or hang out at the rather stuffy Churchill Bar at the Brown Palace). There is also (usually) a live band playing on Saturday nights.
If you'd rather not deal with the smoke, you can just wander next door to their sister pub, Delaney's (where they have live music on Fridays).
Slainte!

Pros: Ambience (smoke and all), beer selection

Cons: A bit testosterone-heavy some nights

One of many many bars downtown, and one of my favorite. It is very big, and so can hold a ton of people. It is spread out into different areas/rooms, which I like, so people aren't packed into one area. Good selection of beers, especially on tap...and by good I mean beers with some substance. :)

Ate here for lunch. We had heard/read mixed reviews. I really enjoyed the interior. Very big, and spacious (well without a whole crowd of people). Lots of dark wood that made it feel cozy. The wait staff was very friendly and happy to see us. I had the eggplant parm sandwhich, Oh my lord! Really really tasty! Hubby went with the Burger topped with Pepper Jack and Bacon. He really enjoyed it as well! We would definitely come back during the evening (gotta try their cider) and again for lunch!

I don't find this to be some down to earth Irish bar. It's more like your typical Lodo trendy place. Overall, it's OK, nothing great about it, but nothing too bad about it. The staff is friendly and they usually make strong drinks, so that's good. Otherwise, it's just a typical Lodo bar.

The Celtic Tavern is the best bar in downtown denver. Only located a block from Bar Alley in LODO, it is the perfect place to get into the hub bub of the downtown scene without having to deal with the sexually charged frat boys usually found at LODOs. Authentic Irish with a scandinavian twist...they care sbout what they serve and how they serve it. Having Murphy's Stout just goes to show how much they want to stay true to their roots (as it is brewed in Ireland and Guiness served in the U.S. comes from Canada). Food is yummy and the service is great! Bartender's are quick, they can pour a great stout or serve a wide variety of shots. Servers are Hot and attentice. What more can you ask for.

My boyfriend & I & a friend went to this bar, randomly, while in Denver to see Social Distortion. We were looking for a good Irish Pub & found it! We had the best service from all bartenders. The friend & I ordered food. I got a burger ordered medium-rare, and it was like a steak on a bun it was so good. The friend got the fish & chips which he had only good things to say about. The drinks were poured strong & the prices were right. I have told everyone & their dog about the awesome burger that I had & we would all definately go back if we're ever in Denver again.

Pros: Just about everything about this bar rocks.

Cons: Depending on when you go, there may be a heavy frat boy/sorostitute vibe, which really turns me off.

Saturday nights at the Celtic Tavern translates into the Andrew James Band. A lot of rock-n-roll and blues by a band with personality. They keep the dancers dancing, the conversation lively, and the establishment packed. If you are in LoDo on a Saturday night and you aren't at the Celtic Tavern, then you missed it.

An Irish bar that does not serve Harp's? Yeah, right.
I tried the Donegal fish & chips($10.95)...all chips. Fish was lightly battered, as advertised, but was thin and chewy.
Way overpriced.
Compared to New York and Boston Irish bars, this place does not measure up. And don't wait until the last minute to use the restroom(s), which are located after going down a long fight of stairs and down two hallways,you may not make it. Reminds me of the Bruce Willis dungeon scene in "Pulp Fiction"

Vicenzo has obviously not been to Dublin recently, or he would recognize the ambience. The Irish owners brought over the bar from Ireland! Great food and service, but laid back atmosphere. A great place to relax and hang out with friends.

I was in the Celtic Tavern recently, on a Sunday night.

Here's a few helpful hints:

1) No Guinness? Shameful.

2) When pouring a stout, there's really no rush; anyone that drinks stout knows this.

3) Referring to # 2, NEVER send a pint of stout to a customer with 2" of foam sitting on top. You can imagine how customers might feel paying $4.50 for a "pint" when all they get is 14 ounces (or less). FILL THE BLOODY JAR!

My experience was only so-so; this was a Sunday night - I could count the number of customers on two hands, so "we're busy" is not an excuse. (What is the service like when you ARE busy)?

Editorial from

In Short
With all its Irish authenticity, the Celtic Tavern might as well be smack dab in the middle of Belfast. This place is relaxing and friendly, and the staff knows the difference between single- and double-malt scotch.…
