Group of 4 was among first to be seated, but it took 30 minutes to obtain a menu and 1.5 hours for food to be delivered. First food delivered was for another table. There was a mandatory 18% gratuity and a 10% tax applied to the tip. On last two visits our steak was tough and food prices are very... More

I've been going to Kelly's several times a year for the past 15 years or so. In the old days, I loved the clubby decor, the service was good and the food was excellent. The lobster bisque was always a treat and particularly the NY steak with a peppercorn sauce was quite good. In the last year or so the... More

We live in Long Beach and have not gone to this restaurant for over 10 years, decided to give it a try again...well, it will be another 10 years if ever. It is so DARK and NOISY in there you can barely have a conversation. There were plenty of waiters except we had to ask for everything. We sat for... More

We only have dinner at Kelly's when we are in town visiting my brother and have been here about 6 or 7 times. The service is generally good. Most of the people in our party ordered steaks and we happy with them. Filet was awesome and would recommend it. I do think that our previous experiences here were better however... More

My wife and I went to Kelly's for dinner since we bought a Groupon. The place is nice, parking is not too difficult since it's valet, service and food are excellent, little pricey but ok for the quality they offer but the only real downside is that the place is very dark; we had problems to see our table at...

Gave this a try as we live in Long Beach and had a Groupon for brunch. We found it very dimly lit inside, which may be fine for a steak dinner but was a little weird coming in for Sunday brunch. The bartender, chatting with some guests at the bar, seemed personable, but our server didn't smile or even make... More

I have been going to this place for the last 30 years.The menu has changed and now I only go to the bar. The happy hour food is affordable and good. The french fries and the prime rib sandwich are a bargain. The last meal I had there was lobster tail and it was excellent ..but pricy! They have great... More

After reading generally good reviews for this resteraunt we made a reservation for 4 last night. After waiting about 1/2 hour we were seated in a booth. Eventually our waiter came by apologetic regarding the wait and took a drink order. After about another 1/2 hour we ordered soup and salad with our waiter nicely reccomending that two of our...

Nice place that has obviously been there for years and visited by lots of locals. Major plus is that they have their own parking lot in a very busy and crowded area. We stopped there after the Long Beach Grand Prix and there wasn't a wait but the bar area was pretty lively and quite a few tables full in... More
