was disappointed not to be seated in the main dinning room. We made reservations, and had assumed we would be in main room at a low table, not a high top in the bar.

I’ve been to Square Celt a few times now. Each time the food and service has been amazing. Ive gone a few times for brunch, the patio makes a great boozy brunch location.

Enjoyed my experience here good food and service, was surprised to be able to enjoyed a live 60s 70s and 80s Cover Band (Dick Diamond) performing. End up staying for it and ordered more food and drinks. A must try if ever in the area, specially on a Saturday.

I had made a reservation for 10. We walked in and it took several minutes to even find a hostess to find out where we were to sit, and she didn't have a clue. We finally got to a table, the hostess said a server would be right with us, and after 15 minutes of waiting I went to the bar to ask for a server. The bartender did make it right by ordering our first round and finding us a server (and giving us our non-alcoholics for free), but it was just a very dis-organized place. The food was good, typical bar food. They definitely need better service!

The ribs were good, but mac & cheese had to send back - dry hard cold noodles & no cheese? Cod dinner was good, but portion on fish was disappointing for price.

The food was both healthy and delicious. A nice surprise to find this near the shopping center. I would recommend this restaurant. My only issue was that the majority of the seating was bar stool high, which I could not comfortably do.

Square Celt is always a favorite for me. However, this is the only time I had somewhat of a complaint this visit. I had obviously reserved a table for 7 and the service wasn’t poor that night—-however, being the holiday season, I cannot believe BT he shortage in staff. It seemed there were only two women working serving and hosting, one being the bartender who had a full bar. They tried their best but seemed odd they were so short staffed this time of year.

The food was average. A bit over priced for average. They told us to sit anywhere and were brought menus fairly quickly but waited 15 minutes for a server in a restaurant with only 3 tables with guests. They hadn't told him we were by the divider. The food waa a bit slow but hot when we got it. Again, if the price was better we might return.

Square Celt really needs to up the quality of its food. Great place to hear music, hang out with friends, but our group of 10 went to dinner elsewhere because
No one likes the food.

When we arrived service wasn’t very good because they were short staffed. The food took forever and the mimosas had more orange juice than bubbly but we were compensated for the appetizer coming out with the food we spent a lot of money for food and drinks and the drinks for the price were terrible as far as alcohol content. Great atmosphere and once more staff showed up they were excellent i plan to go again maybe minus the drinks this time. But great place to celebrate any occasion.

The weather was warm and so everyone was sitting outside. There were only 2 servers so there were long waits for drinks and food. They tried their best though.

Service was outstanding. Food not so good.

Out of 4 people in the group 3 were disappointed in their food. Fish n chips was over cooked and rubbery. Other meals were ok at best.

If you are going for good service, and bar items you will be happy otherwise I would pass if you are going for the food.

We used to love this restaurant as a immediate and large extended family, so much so that my 10 year old son chose it for his 10th Birthday. We arrived monday and there was a baby shower in the main dining room. We had previously set a reservation for 10 which they were rude and not prepared for. We sat down and I almost felt bad for our waitress. We had 10 ppl and 3 kids were included in that number. Mon-Thursday is Kids Eat Free however the food was uneatable will a rancid smell and taste. Also our bill reflected the full price for the "Kids Eat Free " meals. We also had a reservation for 6:15 and ordered right away. Our food did not arrive until 7:15 and most meals tasted fine but as previously mentioned, the kids meals were way off. Drink refills were completely no available and requested more than 3x before receiving. We also asked for a Birthday ice cream/cake offering and the check. The check came (incorrect) but the birthday celebration did not. My 10 year old son was very hurt as it was a big birthday with his grandparents and cousins and nothing ever came. We finally just sang happy birthday without a candle or dessert and went home at 7:45pm. THIS WAS UNACCEPTABLE AND DISGUSTING TO DO TO A CHILD. In the past my family has held 2 showers, several family celebrations and regular outings there but I seriously doubt we will EVER be back. SHAME ON YOU SQUARE CELT for accepting a reservation and not having the staff to handle it....

Had a great time outdoors, despite the rain and hail. Room to move tables under canopy and still enjoyed the warm weather. Despite being only table outside, our waitress never forgot us! Look forward to going back.

I loved the ambience. The service wasn't great but also not bad. The food was very good for the price and the amount. Don't order the sangria, it was pure ice!
I will return again in summer because they have a very cute outside area.

My family was in town for the Easter weekend and we went to Square Celt for the Saturday Brunch. We sat in the bar and the room is nice. Lots of TVs but not the sound from the TV which was nice. Music playin was good. They were short on servers and the bartender did everything. His attitude was kind and patient and did a very good job considering the circumstances.

Shelby called to confirm my reservation and since it was a nice warm night asked if I would also like to sit outside and they would accommodate my reservation for the inside a couple hours after. Waitresses were amazing. Food equally amazing. We watched a final four game after cocktails outside then watched the band. Love it there!!!!

We were a group of six. Four of us had the all-you-can-eat fish fry; the other two had the salmon. We were all very happy with our meals; the price was reasonable ($14 for the fish fry); and the service was very attentive.

We went on a Monday afternoon for the advertised corned beef and cabbage. There were 4 adults and 6 kids. The corned beef was overcooked. The cabbage was raw. The kids ordered a steak which was overcooked. A burger which was overcooked and chicken strips which were all overcooked!! We were the only customers in the restaurant and the service was terrible. You would think our waitress was the cook and waitress. So disappointing.

We had to wait around 10 minutes before someone came to the hostess stand. We were also charged $8 for the children’s buffet after my nephew had a few bites of a donut I had then fell asleep. Seems kind of insane to charge a 3 year old a full buffet when he had four bites of a donut.

Great brunch! Fresh and loads of selections! They ran out of plates so we had to wait for round 2. Service was marginal at best. Wonderful value especially with a BOGO!

I love to go to Square Celt when there is a band playing that I want to see. I prefer the warmer weather so I can be outside in the beer garden. They have a beautiful beer garden. My friends and I got there before the band started and it was super loud with everyone talking, it gets much worse with the music. However, the food is excellent and the entertainment never disappoints!

I requested a high top table close to the stage for 10 people. I was given a corner booth that was furthest from the stage. There is no real dance floor. Not an ideal venue for a band.

Some friends and I made reservations at 11:45a for Sunday brunch. Because we made the reservation so early, the restaurant wasn’t nearly as crowded as I hoped. The hostess was super friendly and we were seated almost immediately. Once we got to our table, we waited 20 minutes (not an over exaggeration) before our waitress came over to take our initial order. Our intended 1.5-2 hr visit turned to 3 hrs because we literally never saw our waitress. In the entire time we were there she visited our table 4 times but was miraculously able to get the other tables in her section in and out before us. When we looked for her, she was constantly in a whole other section talking to and hanging around other patrons (which i can only assume were friends or relatives) We had to ask a bus boy to hunt her down so we could get our check. I’ve never received such poor service.

Came to watch the Bears game. Food and service were good. Had to send back the nachos as they added peppers but we had ordered them without. (Food sensitivities) Bears game was turned on late.
