Good food, not so friendly waitress

I had the daily special when I went, my friends all got something different. Large portions and tasty food. Nothing I would go out of my way to make a return trip though. The waitress we had must of been having a bad day because she was not friendly and seemed impatient on us. She came back... read more

This is my fourth time at Kelleher's and every time has been enjoyable. The food has been excellent every time and they have a great selection of beers and spirits. Best of all is the overall atmosphere. Just a fun place to enjoy a meal with friends. So long as the quality remains, I will be a returning patron.

We meet monthly, and this was Kelleher nite. The food is typical bar food, maybe a notch above, depending on when ya go. Terrific selection of beer, and I have never been there when the place wasn't packed. Tues nite is Trivia Night, and it was standing room only. Pat Sullivan is always there, and i feel that he gives... More

Kelleher's Irish Pub (Riverfront, Peoria, IL) - The menu reads "Ceade Mile Failte" and translates to "a hundred thousand welcomes." A great place for friends & colleagues to enjoy Irish comfort food & great conversation. The hearty Guinness pot roast with red potatoes and carrots, and the homemade brown bread which tastes like mildly sweetened cake, made me feel warm... More

Kelleher's has a great beer menu that is updated monthly. Each month there is a beer of the month that you can buy for $5 and keep the promotional glass with refills at $3. Great for beer glass collectors. Food has an Irish theme and I would say is pretty average.

We stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. We fell in love with the charm of this converted building that served as a stable for the Fire Department back in the day. We really enjoyed the Beef Bites appetizer and the Irish Coddle soup. Our server, Malorie, could not have provided better service. I know where we will be stopping... More

My husband and I love to go to Kelleher's to try new beers and drinks.. The atmosphere is comfortable. The staff is very knowledgable about the different beers. We love to split a burger, bowl of chilli or fish & chips. They have wonderful live entertainment. During the warmer months, it's very nice to sit outside and play bags. You... More

We met family here for dinner on Monday, December 29, 2014 and were a party of 11. We were seated quickly in the back section beyond the bar - which was nice as it was quiet on this slow night. The decor is old world pub and the inside back section had long tables, great for a large party. Beer... More
