Reporter Food: The Celtic Knot in Leonard

Reporter Food: The Celtic Knot in Leonard

(Crystal A. Proxmire, Jan. 3, 2021)

Leonard, MI – The Celtic Knot is a Gaelic Tavern that boasts “inspiration drawn from the magic of the Emerald Isle,” and promises of “the Irish tradition you have been thirsting to experience.”

While a pub full of adult beverages and camaraderie is put on hold through the pandemic, The Celtic Knot has continued to offer a carryout menu full of Irish and American fare for hungry patrons.

For my recent carryout order, I picked three tasty items.

Scotch Eggs are a personal favorite of mine.  They’re hardboiled eggs coated in sausage and breading and fried, making the outside just a little bit crispy, and adding a layer of flavor.

I also picked up a Dubliner Steak Caesar Salad which had thick juicy bites of steak, fresh crisp lettuce, Dubliner cheese, bacon, fried onions, and croutons. Plus it came with a warm, soft, buttery bread stick.

To go along with it I ordered the Bonnie Prince Charlie, because how could I resist a name like that? This sandwich was an interesting mix of flavors including grilled ham, salami, mozzarella, lettuce, tomato, black olives, and Italian dressing served on a hoagie bun. It also comes with mild peppers, but I opted for mine without them.  This sandwich was way messier than I had expected, and I did not mind one bit.

Other menu items include the Blarney Stone sandwich, burgers and sliders, housemade soups like Chicken Dumpling and Murphy’s Onion Soup, and a selection of items from “the loch” including Scottish salmon, bang bang shrimp, drunken mussels, perch, and fish and chips.

This Irish-themed treasure is located at 1318 Rochester Road in Leonard.
