Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub Restaurant Review

: High ceilings, brick walls and warm service evoke the welcoming atmosphere of an authentic Irish pub, so it’s no wonder this place is packed around St. Patrick's Day when the annual Kells Irish Festival draws thousands of green-clad revelers. The crowds are always raucous as well during major European sporting events as it's a popular destination to watch international football, rugby and Gaelic matches. Another plus: This is the rare bar that follows European custom by offering a special children's menu. Entrées for adults include corned beef and cabbage, fish ‘n’ chips, classic bangers and mash, and chips with curry sauce. There are also lighter choices such as a cured salmon plate and spinach salad. The bar boasts one of the Northwest's largest selections of single malt Scotches and whiskeys. If you want a puff with your pint, head to the cigar room. Authentic live Irish music keeps the joint jigging seven nights a week.
