And I did, by raising a pint as we perused our lunch menus.

We chose this restaurant because both of us have a fondness for Irish food: colcannon and champ, boxty, boiled bacon and cabbage, soda bread. You name it, we've probably sampled it at one time or another. In addition, we'd heard and read good things about it.

I sipped my ale and we scanned the several choices for appetizers and lunch. My wife chose to have a cup of the Guinness stew and I settled on a cup of the roasted red pepper and tomato soup. Both were excellent. Hot (temp, not spice) and chock-a-block full of flavors. Good start.

We were not rushed. Our server paid attention and when we were finished with these our entrées arrived. Shepherd's pie (a double layer of potatoes encasing tender, tasty lamb) for my wife; a Cornish miner's pasty for me (okay, this isn't Irish but I couldn't resist. We couldn't have been more pleased. These were authentic and well-crafted.

An excellent lunch upon our arrival in Great Falls. It gets our highest recommendation.

After a long cross-country trip, I dropped in to the pub attached to my hotel, the Hotel Arvon. As soon as I walked through the door, I was hit with the sights and sounds of a packed room, with everyone having a great time. I honestly forgot to shoot pics of the food, but had beef medallions at the suggestion of my waitress Theresa (who was amazing!) and then had bread pudding for dessert. Best bread pudding I’ve ever had. I was there on Wednesday night, when they have half-priced whiskey, and I took full advantage. Green Spot and Teelings. The mark of a well-run pub is how they handle the big three: bar, service and kitchen. Honestly, I’d give them five stars for each facet of the game. Would I come back? In a heartbeat.

The service was great. The drinks always full and the food was on our table prompt. Hubby and I both had steak. I have to say my steak and fries was much better then his New York. Mine was even cheaper.t steak was marinated and tender. His was bland and had fatty pieces.

Got the bacon wrapped steak medallions in Celtic cream sauce.
I ordered medium cooked and was brought medium so they know what they're doing. The steaks came on a bed of onion, potatoe, and asparagus.marinated in sauces. The meal felt a bit expensive for the portion size. However the flavor made up for size, steak was moist perhaps the bacon helps with that. Veggies were nicely marinated. Waitresses came by often to check satisfaction and top off drinks, there was live instrumental music in an easy going atmosphere. The place is decorated authentic to its name and felt very clean. This is a great place for a group of friends with a bit of culture.

We recently spent 2 days in Great Falls. We stayed next door at the historic Arvon Hotel which we thoroughly enjoyed.

In those two days we ate both breakfast and dinner both days at the Celtic Pub. It’s a really fun Irish Pub with great food.

We highly recommend both the Hotel and Pub to anyone visiting Great Falls. We loved our visit to Great Falls and these places added so much to the experience.
