The atmosphere is flawless for those seeking a down to earth, real Irish pub experience. The booths are cozy and well decorated, and the bar area is adequate. It's not the largest space, but definitely not the smallest, either.
A downtown pub that is not the usual Disney-esque fantasy of an Irish pub. An authentic-looking street--side lends it atmosphere as does the huge bar inside. Boddington is on draft there, hard to find elsewhere, and the food was quite tasty. At the time I was there a recorded mix including Tom Petty was playing in the background - not authentically Irish. The staff was friendly and efficient. A good Irish pub experience.
My wife works about a block from The Harp And Celt and I met her here for lunch when I got back in town from a job. She had mentioned it in phone calls and I love Irish pubs so I had thought of it for a month. We each got a bowl of soup that was a dream. I had Potato and Leek and she had Crab and Shrimp Chowder. Both were excellent and very rich. Bread and butter comes with each plate and the bread is very fresh. We also ordered a Corned Beef Sandwich to split. It was made very well on toasted bread and tasted great with the spicy Coleman's mustard. The problem we discovered was that the soup was far too rich for us to try to eat the sandwich and remain awake. This was a great lunch and our downfall was it was too good. We should've ordered a cup or left the sandwich for another visit. Tiffany was our waitress and she was excellent and handles a fairly full house very well. This was my first visit and it will not be my last.
Went in with a friend to watch the soccer for the afternoon and got a couple of cokes to start before moving onto beer and food. The staff were attentive even when just refilling the cokes to start with. The lady serving us made great effort to talk and chat with us and even gave us a free house cocktail shot. Only reason it's 4 stars is thati had a chicken burger which wasn't fantastic for the price paid. But for drinks this place is 5* for service and prices.
