This seems to be our go to place to eat in town, we take friends here, or just go ourselves. Love the atmosphere and the food. We usually get the same waiter, he is great. Love the burgers and sandwiches, their homemade chips are really good. Over the years their menu has changed, we used to always get the oysters... More

Stopped here on our way out to Michigan on a Friday night. Able to be seated right away (table of 3). Service was good - our waitress was super spunky and friendly. Husband had pork chops which was awesome. I had the reuben and it was also very good. Kiddo had the child'e meal cheeseburger - very fresh and just... More

We were on a mini-vacation and decided to get a bite to eat and go to the movies. We found Tom Kelly's online and read the reviews so we thought we'd give it a try. Really excellent food, big portions, and excellent service. Super convenient if you're going to the movies!

First impressions here are very good, a bright, clean atmosphere, and friendly staff. We were on our way to an Irish music concert, so we felt this Irish pub-style place world start the evening off right. The menu has many appealing items, but we decided to share the fried zucchini appetizer followed by the meat loaf entree. The zucchini was... More

Great Irish food. Our waiter had a full area, but took very good care of us. The rueben burger is great, and you need an appetite. The traditional corned beef and cabbage dinner is soo good. All those natural flavours came out and had a dance party on my tongue.

I've been to Tom Kelly's several times and I have definitely found some favorite menu items. The meatloaf burgers are just fantastic. I get them every time! Get them with fries instead of chips - they're perfectly seasoned and are nice and crispy. Oh, and after my last visit the waitress recommended a new favorite appetizer of mine - the... More

This Irish pub specializes in two things I wouldn't expect: ribs and pizza. Both are very good. The owners walk the place and make sure you are well taken care of. And they pour a nice Guinness too.
