Crafty And You Know It...

If you're crafty and you know it, clap your hands. If you're crafty and you know it, clap your hands. If you're crafty and you know it and your food can really show it, if you're crafty and you know it clap your hands. Clap. Clap!

Well, now that I have that wonderful tune stuck in your head and you're at, stomping your feet, I'll try to help get it out by thinking about some food to check out. Our most recent visit at a place place that is indeed crafty (it's in the name), has some delicious food. That place is, Celts Craft House located in the Grandstay Hotel in Apple Valley.

If you've ever been to any of the other Celts Pubs in the south metro and left thinking to yourself, "Why did I just eat that terrible food" like I have every time. Well, the Craft House may just be the place to help you change your mind about eating at a Celts. I was very hesitant to check this place out, but glad I gave it a shot. The burger that I had and the sandwich my wife had were both delicious and I want to go back to get the sandwich again.

It was a family dinner; my wife and I, along with my parents and our little guy. We ordered some adult beverages and gave my little guy his typical bottle of almond milk. Shortly there after, we ordered our dinner. My mother - All-You-Can-Eat Fish, my dad - Braeden Burger, my wife - Craft House Club and I - Craft House Burger.

We'll get my dads burger out of the way. An 8oz. burger with applewood smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, onion straws and house made bbq sauce. I didn't try it, but there was nothing on his plate except maybe a crumb. My moms fish was pretty good and worth eating and getting some extra (if you're there on a Friday night), but I wouldn't add it to my top ten list. As for my burger and my wife's sandwich - not we're talking!

We'll start with my burger! The Craft House Burger starts with an 8oz. burger seasoned just right and made completed by adding a fried egg, hand-cut fries, pepper jack and American cheeses and house made roasted garlic aioli. The aioli and egg made this thing insanely awesome. This is definitely a burger worth checking out if you stop by the Craft House.

On to the best meal of the evening, my wife's sandwich. Her Craft House Club consisted of - Smoked turkey, house made corned beef, applewood smoked bacon, Swiss and American cheese, lettuce, tomato and onion on sourdough bread with house made roasted garlic aioli. I was happy and my family knew it! This is a must get sandwich while at the Craft House and will be my go to dish if we're ever visiting. It made me, clap my hands, stomp my feet and shout hurray.

Celts Craft House certainly has some dishes worth checking out if you're ever in the area. Ownership is priding themselves in authentic Irish cuisine and while I didn't try the Bangers or Shepherd's Pie yet, I'm thinking at some point and time, I know I will be.
