Diner Reviews
  • "Great atmosphere and staff was friendly. But I asked for there to be special accommodations for a birthday (ie a piece of cake or a bit of ice cream- that I of course would pay for) when I made the reservation. But they didn't seem to know/remember that was what I had requested."

  • "Great for Sunday brunch. Great food choices (omelet and waffle bar) fresh meat selections (corned beef, pork, chicken) and many other breakfast and lunch choices. Lively and very friendly staff."

  • "I come here to watch my Spartans often. It's a bit more low-key than other MSU bars in the city and has pretty good food. If you have a big group, aim for the back bar by the couches. Perfect spot to watch a game!"

  • "Lunch was quite special. The restaurant and bar were only half full so the noise level was low. The food was excellent! I had one of the specials of the day - roast rosemary chicken. My friend had a burger. We both had beer. And we split (90% for me!) chocolate lava cake. It cost about $35 (pre-tax and tip). Service was excellent. Thank you!!"

  • "I am a frequent guest at Mystic Celt. Always great food at a good value and the staff couldn't be friendlier. The daily specials are great too. Cant beat their chicken wings. Obviously a well managed establishment!"

  • "The restaurant offers quite a wide variety of food and options. Service was very slow considering we were there for a weekday lunch. Server left our table empty handed although there were several empty plates to be removed and walked over ot an empty table and picked up a couple dishes."

  • "The Mystic Celt is good for "bar" food and watching almost any sporting event. Our server was attentive and did not rush us out. We enjoyed the Northwestern v. Ohio State game while dining. The only drawback was the level of noise; wow it was loud!"

  • "Great location next to brown line Southport stop. Food is good and price reasonably. Lots of food/drink specials every day. Sunday brunch buffet is extremely nice. The only negative is that they don't allow dogs on their outdoor patio sidewalk. Sidewalk is public space and dogs can easily fit below tables. Other restaurants do allow dogs at feet of owners."

  • "Mystic Celt was a great place to watch the hawks game! There were several drink and food specials and tvs throughout where turned to the game. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly, and gave us recommendations on which speciality cocktails she liked the most. I'll definitely come back to Mystic Celt to watch a game!"

  • "combo of an Irish pub and a sports bar. Menu could use some healthier options, but otherwise pleasant."
    Dined on 3/29/2013
  • "we tried the corned beef special which they did a nice job with. prices were a good value for pub food in Chicago. will definitely go back, hopefully they will have some Goose island beers on tap next time."
    Dined on 3/13/2013
  • "This is not a great brunch, but it is a very good value -$10.95 all you can eat brunch buffet. It is a well supplied-- eggs and potatoes and pancakes were good, sausages and bacon were a little greasy and a little overcooked, not bad. Tables are well spaced, we were comfortable. Staff is friendly but could be a little better focused----twice bringing service (water, utensils etc) for two to a table of three people, bringing the coffee without asking if we wanted sugar or milk, had to wait for both which were brought separately. This is certainly NOT an Irish pub. There is nothing Irish about it except the green paint on the front, the sorta Irish soda bread and the name. It's a typical American sport bar and that's ok! Again, good"

  • "I was in need of a brunch place for my group of 12 on New Year's Day. Though there are an infinite number of brunch places in the city, few of them actually take a group reservation more than an hour in advance. Mystic Celt, however, took a reservation DAYS in advance on OpenTable. When we came on New Years Day, my entire group of 12 was seated together at our reservation time with no hassle. In addition to the great reservation, the brunch buffet was actually really good and a great value for the price. For $10.95, Mystic Celt offers an all you can eat brunch buffet complete with carved meats, made to order eggs, and waffles. It was the perfect place to go for a big group to recover from New Years Eve."

  • "Our experience was very good. The staff were helpful and efficient. The food was cooked to order and good. The wine was a generous portion and the Irish Coffee was just right."

  • "We have lunch their occasionally when visiting my son who lives a couple of blocks away. It's our favorite place to go. Unfortunately there was a mistake on our order but the food was delicious. We have been three on Sundays for brunch and it is fantastic!"

  • "They gave my table away even after I called 30 min prior to arriving to check on the reservation (as to not waste my trip there). When I arrived the host let me speak to the manager and instead of fessing up to the mistake that they did not read my notes in the OpenTable request, he (the manager)told me they filled up and there was nothing he could do. I was not happy as I am a frequent customer and had higher expectations for my guests. I had my parents with me from out of town and it was embarassing to show up and not have the table as promised via the request and my call 30 min prior to my reservation time. The manger offered appetizers but sadly, I will not be retuning with guests again. Not a happy customer after this particular visit."

  • "We've been to Mystic Celt many times. Great specials, great atmosphere. Service can be slow depending on time of day or how many large groups are there. Overall, a good place to go. We will be back."

  • "Was surprised at how large the restaurant was with opportunities to dine outside, at bar tables, and regular tables. Food was excellant. Tasty corned beef (as you would hope at an Irish Bar) and the mac and cheese was delicious. Service was slow but our waitress had a very large group to deal with at the opposite side of the place, so not good planning by the hostess."
    Dined on 6/24/2012
  • "Consistently a great meal and specials make it affordable. The staff is always friendly and helpful - we're regulars here!"

  • "Great neighborhood spot close to Athleta store. Food was just right - burgers and mac n/ cheese hit the spot. Drink menu - loved the blue moon/vodka combo - very refreshing! Will return again."

  • "Our food was awesome, the service was so-so...would definitely come back though."

  • "Came here for dinner before Sox v Cubs game. Had BLT wedge salad - yummy! Burger - perfectly done! Plenty of beer choices, great people watching. Young vibrant crowd. Hostess tried to get us outdoor seating, kept checking for availability and kept us posted."
    Dined on 5/19/2012
  • "When I announced my OpenTable reservation the hostess said that she didn't know how to acknowledge it so just showed us to a table that happened to be available without our reservation. Made me wonder what would have happened if they were busier!"

  • "Must get the Corned Beef Sandwich! Great little local place to go to when you aren't sure where to go."
    Dined on 3/18/2012
  • "Really like the brunch on Sunday a great deal. Am glad that they take reservations for large groups. Had 12 and sometimes have had a wheel chair. So we always like to call ahead to make sure we have table height seating not pub tables. Lunch carvings need to start at 11:00 instead of noon. Lines get too long everyone is waiting for noon."

  • "Always a good meal at a good price - love the specials and the promos. Friendly service makes it a regular for me."

  • "Its a great bar! My hubby and I go there on date night so I thought to host my bday dinner there. Unfortunately, this night wasnt the night for a large group. Our waitress kept running off and staying gone for prolong periods of time. Other than that is was a good expeience."

  • "Went for happy hour on a Friday with 5 of my girlfriends. We mostly stuck to drinks, but got some chili and mozzarella sticks later. Our waitress was awesome and the food was prompt. The only problem my friends had was the u-shaped seat we had because they found it awkward and hard to hear the other side of the table. I didn't really mind though! (probably had the best seat). I'd definitely go back!"
    Dined on 11/18/2011
  • "Mystic Celt was a refreshing change from your typical Wrigleyville bar scene, but without missing out on any of the fun and excitement. This authentic Irish pub offers great indoor and outdoor seating, all within full view of one of many tv's so you don't miss the game. The food was delicious, the service attentive, and there are great drink specials even on the weekends! Mystic Celt has all the ingredients for an awesome evening with friends!"

  • "Made Sunday brunch reservations for noon time. When we got there we here not on the list. Seems nobody is looking at the computer to check for reservations. Being a bar and Bears game was starting the place was packed. So we got stuck in a corner. (Strike One). Our two Drink orders where wrong and then was overcharged for them. (Strike Two). Food was so so... call it fair. We wont be back. Lots of other places to try."

  • "Fish and chips were as good as advertised - nice chunks of white fish and plenty of fries and peas. We all enjoyed our food. The ambiance was vrey relaxed during the early evening, but when we returned around 11pm for a drink after a movie, the place had turned into a loud dance club! It was a pretty funny switch, but it worked and we had a great time."

  • "This was our second time at Mystic Celt and it did not measure up to our first experience. The food was not as good and it came luke warm. We asked for our fries well done, and they were soggy. It also seemed noisier. The staff is great - very friendly and responsive."
