Happy Anniversary giveaway: Celtic Grill restaurant in Bentonville!

Posted by Lyndi

Are you into hole-in-the-wall, off-the-beaten-path, and “themed” restaurants?  If so, then Celtic Grill is for you.  Located in Bentonville in a business park close to the intersection of Olive and “J” Street, Celtic Grill offers something different than the every day cookie-cutter fare:  Irish food!

I personally am a big fan of the shepherd’s pie (beef tips, peas, carrots, with potatoes baked golden brown) and reuben sandwich (okay, back in the day before I discovered I couldn’t eat wheat).  And, according to an informal poll on my facebook page, their fish and chips (Icelandic cod fried golden brown in Guiness beer batter) are rated a fan favorite!  Unfortunately, Celtic Grill does not have a website so I am unable to post their menu link.  If you like traditional Irish fare, you won’t be disappointed.  Want something less “theme” based?  Don't worry, there is plenty to please both young and old from salad bar to burgers to fish to steak.

For almost five years now, Celtic Grill has been open everyday from 11am until midnight.  There is a bar (with Guiness Extra Stout, of course) and a main dining room.  Rumor has it there is an outdoor patio but I have yet to see it!

Now is someone’s lucky chance to score a Celtic Grill with a free $15 penguin bill gift certificate.

There’s a catch:  You have to add a comment and you have to add it fast because this giveaway ends THIS Friday night at 8pm CDT!  Yes, 8pm!

I have a $15 penguin bill gift certificate to give away to Celtic Grill, courtesy of my friend Dave with!  NWArestaurants has crazy deals on featured restaurants that sell out fast.  Usually deals of 50% of gift certificates (aka “penguin bills”)!  Check out his website, twitter, or facebook page!   His site is great if you want to search for area restaurants and it has the ability to “filter” on key items, such as private rooms, gluten free, low carb, etc.  Check it out!


1 lucky winner will receive a $15 penguin bill gift certificate to Celtic Grill located in Bentonville on 11 SE 28th Street.  Contest ends this Friday, September 3rd at 8pm (CDT).  I will pick a winner via randomizer.


Leave me a comment using the comment form, below, preferably with your twitter, email, or blog name to make it easy to contact you if you win.  

The comment is up to you:  This is going to be a fun one!  Leave a comment telling us your Irish name and/or the funniest Irish food combination you can think of me.  Here’s an example:  My name is O’Lyndi McFoodie and I would like to see a Guiness-battered krispy crème donut!

Tip:  If you enter using the Name/URL option, you can leave the URL blank.  The Blogger format can be a little confusing!   See the “How to leave a comment (please do!)” link at the top of this page for step-by-step instructions!

No purchase necessary to enter. Contest void where prohibited. Contest open to members who are 18 years or older. Contest open only to Continental US residents only, although this one really makes sense if you are in Northwest Arkansas since the penguin bill is for the Bentonville location.

Good luck to you, lad and lassies!  


  1. My husband loves Celtic Grill...would love to win this for him!

  2. Well, not really funny, but my Irish name is Silja Sample, as I am actually Irish (moved from Dublin less than 2 years ago). I would love to get to eat some Irish food again!

    I would like a potato farl with lashings of butter!

  3. You know, I have tried the Celtic Grill probably close to 5 years ago, and quite honestly, I had forgotten about it since it is off the beaten path of restaurant row. I would love to enjoy it again, and the dishes you describe sound great. -jon

  4. My name is Jack O'Presley & I'd like to see boiled meat and shamrocks!!

  5. I'd go with Shelby Vaughn as my Irish name. An Irishman might argue that Vaughn is a Welsh name, but I won't argue with my Grandma over where her family came from.

    And I don't know what the best Irish food would be, so obviously I to win so I can educate my taste buds!
