They suddenly closed with no explanation...guess it was the economy but I liked the food, liked the people and liked the location. Had a fab view of the trees and mountains. Just didn't get enough traffic up here I guess. Too bad.

We stopped by Kelly's Mountain House Tavern because we saw it had outdoor seating & was pet friendly, we had our dog with us. It was great, very friendly, food was awesome and not over-priced. Owner came out to say hi, ask how everything was, and introduce us to his dog, Ebony. Cute little healer/lab mix. When we are in... More

Their bar staff took 15 minutes to make a martini, and it was clear the young lady didn't know how to make it and was pouring way too much Vermouth in it. The owner was standing around not even helping. I said forget it. Have not been back. Not what it used to be.

We've passed this place many times and there is always a line of cars parked in front so decided to try it. There were only 3 parties in the restaurant (including us) and the service was excruciatingly slow. Luckily we were not in any hurry. To be fair, there was only one waitress (but still?) and when we got our... More

They are bending over backwards to really fix this place up. Food was great, I got my fries cooked perfectly. Really like the way it looks, clean and ski-lodge style. Waiter was perfect and so helpful. Constantly checking in with us, brought me some extra stuff. Prices were great. They have a bar attached which is cozy but I don't... More

Sad to say but this is one restaurant that I can not recommend. Flies buzzing our head, someone mopping the attached banquet? room with disinfectant cleanser creating an unpleasant odor. Salad was good and served quickly. Was told it was a good thing I wanted mashed potatoes because that is all they had (except I saw fries on other diners... More

We went to Kelly's on St. Patrick's Day after our kids reported their ski instructor Johnny "Action" told them the place had the best meals on the mountain. We suffered through tepid and overly-salty corned beef and cabbage, greasy fried zucchini, and clam chowder seasoned with dill; the bison-burger wasn't bad but wasn't especially good either. When we read that... More
