Sláinte! Irish pub opening in Lynnwood

How about some crawfish with your Guinness?

An Irish pub/Cajun café is taking over the space formerly occupied by Hooters in Lynnwood.

The signs have gone up for Celtic Bayou, and workers are making renovations to the interior of the building on 196th Street SW near 44th Avenue West (across from Fred Meyer.)

On its Web site, Celtic Bayou is described as “a Cajun café and Irish pub that offers excellent authentic Cajun, Irish, & American foods along with award-winning handcrafted beers brewed by local Washington breweries.”

An opening date has not been announced. Celtic Bayou has another location in Redmond.

  1. Hmmm….Ireland is not known for spicy dishes, so we are a more than a little curious about the fare. However, we shall go there with an open mind.

  2. The Redmond place is fantastic. Really miss Far West brewing, actually, but it's still a fun and cool place to go for a pint. Decent food at the very least. Glad to have one local to me. 🙂

  3. It opens on Monday.

    FYI, Farwest Brewing is now Black Raven Brewing in Redmond. Great beers.

  4. Visited the new Celtic Bayou last night…sorry, but it was horrible on ALL counts (service, decor, price, and food). We will NOT be going back…ever.

  5. Sooo looked forward this opening of biz… whoa, what a disappointment!!! Granted we were there 6 days after they opened but service was non-existent, understaffed (we sat for 2 1/2 hours and never had our salad plates or used glasses bussed) staff that IS there is under-trained, lighting was horrible, food sent back for undercooked (blue fish is NO good) ended up re-delivered on same plate 45 minutes later black from overcooking not seasoning , drinks non delivered (get up and get it yourself seems to be a theme). They did knock off the horrid hushpuppies (raw dough in center) from the bill but that did nothing to offset our reaction of overpriced and mostly disreputable food. Looking directly into the walk in and most of the unfinished kitchen behind the “bar” was neither uplifting nor appetizing. Oh yeah – no crawdads on the menu or beignets or …..

  6. Wow… sounds like they weren't up and running at grand opening. BUT… My husband and I were there yesterday afternoon and EVERYTHING was superb. I've searched all over the greater Seattle area for a good Reuben sandwich, and they have one!!!! The fries were delicious and crispy. My husband ordered red beans and rice and it was scrumptious and the waitress was the best waitress I have ever had.

  7. My wife and I have eaten here several times. I’m from South Mississippi about 120 miles out of New Orleans. The food is good and satisfies my cravings for Cajun Food. The catfish is even good and I’m very picky about my catfish. The crawfish etouffe has real crawfish and was seasoned just right.
