love the place! – great place to relax... variety of beers to try with always a new one on tap the owner is impressed by or wants to try out. the owner bartends a few nights a week to make a personal connection with the regulars and to have fun. in the summer you can't beat the outside sitting area. the foods is basic- but that is not why people go to the celtic bayou. there is new items on the menu regulary and seasonal specials that spice it up. the taste combinations are usually winners. if you go you will become a regular- there is a mug club- the place is a hidden gem in a quite random setting. try it out- and ask for eric- he is a great conversationalist and love to meet those that come to his restaurant.
Thank you for all the amazing words! – We use to own the Celtic Bayou, and just sold it last april. The new owner is great, and still has great food! Different beers but still the same fun! Good Luck to CB, and thank you everyone again!
I love this place! – I love their beer selection, their fun atmosphere, friendly service, and great food. Who would have thought to mix an Irish Pub with Cajun Food! It's genius!
I love their crawfish etoufee.
Highly recommended! If you have a Passport/Prime card, it's an even better deal!
Micro-brews, ballads and an after-work crowd make for a bit of merry-making. – The Scene
This cozy Irish-style pub overflows with a crowd of baby boomers who clap along to the fast beats and sing along to the sad, slow ballads. Work chums meet for a round of darts in the wee hours and a tipsy patron might be inspired to do a jig in the narrow space between tables, but most everyone else hunkers down for an evening of music and conversation.
It's all about the brews here. Sixteen microbeers on tap, including imports, local favorites and American standards--it's worth while. If you can't decide, order a sampler tray and try a bit of them all. Spicy chicken wings, decent burgers or fish-and-chips taste best with a pint of cold brew. The menu branches out to include Irish pub fare, such as bangers and mash, and, as a nod to its namesake, Cajun-spiced catfish.
An Irish Pub with a kick! – This is a great place for food and micro-brews. The wait staff are always on and the kitchen staff puts out good food with presentation you wouldn't expect from this kind of pub atmosphere. Wireless connections are a great plus for those who can't quite let go of their laptops. 10 out of 10 for me
Mellow Excitement... – I watched this restaurant get built and eagerly anticipated its opening. I was not disappointed. The food is fabulously flavorful with a bite. I used to miss good jambalaya, but I know where I can get it anytime I want now. The brewery also has a fabulous stout for those of you who like a beer you can't see through.
Great Atmosphere, so-so food – We love going here, especially at night cause it has a really nice atmosphere for sitting around talking. It also has great music, really good cajun french fries and good beer.
The food though, could definintely be improved, it is overpriced for the quality. But We go there just for the wonderful atmosphere and some beers and fries.
Faux Everything – Well, I'm baffled. Friends, I've been a chef for 35 years, worked for Paul Prudhomme, and learned cooking from my Aunt Louise, who operated one of the most beloved restaurants in Baton Rouge and I can state unequivocally that the food at Celtic Bayou bears NO RESEMBLANCE AT ALL to actual Cajun food. Their hushpuppies have no onion in them, are hard as rocks, and badly cooked. Their gumbo just flat sucks, and the other Cajun stuff falls into that universal mistake of thinking that Cajun = Blazin' Hot. FALSE! The beer? Wonderful. The Irish food? Passable. The crowd? Self-absorbed, overentitled yuppie flotsam, whose overheard conversations have the same affect, on those of us who don't work at Microsoftie, of venturing into the fringes of a huge ether spill. If this is your idea of a great after-work hangout, you should get out more.
Hot Dang! – Great brew, good eats, nice atmosphere. They also sell growlers.
Celtic and Cajun???? – This isn't a bad place, and it actually does make some nice beers that are a great alternative to the stuff you can get everywhere else.. However, they seem to be all over the map: Irish, English, German, etc.. It would have been a better idea (in my opinion) to have stayed with the Irish theme (let all the other brewers in town make a Hefe Weizen).
Lastly, I don't think the "cajun" faire really suits the Irish brews.
