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

Drinks were great, food was spectacular. Mike and Carrie were awesome as usual! Love the potato skins and fish and chips.

Stopped here the other evening for dinner, they were crowded but found us a table quickly. Nice atmosphere, cozy. I ordered the Guinness pot roast, and it was good and the prices were very reasonable. My only issue with my meal was that the pile of mashed potatoes was larger than the pot roast portion of my meal, I mean... More

Warm, eclectic, fun atmosphere. Great beer and fast service. Set close to the water and amidst tastefully chosen decor, including a wacky mrs. Claus waving a candle slowly from the high shelf over the bar.

This place reminds me of the bar in the TV show Cheers. Building has character, old world charm. Menu has great sandwiches, salads, entrees. Wide selection of tap beers. Very friendly, welcoming people. A great place to eat, have a drink and visit.

Rustic décor that truly reminds one of pubs in Ireland. The menu offers several Irish dishes and the bar offers a variety of beverages including the typical Irish drinks.

Kellehers is the place to go to meet friends and have a good time. The sandwichs and burgers are excellent and the onion rings are the best in town, with a tempura type crispy coating. A bit out of the way in the winter, bur near the riverfront activities in the summer. They have the traditional Irish beers plus a... More

This place can make a great meal and they have a lot of traditional Irish food choices on the menu. I can say that they prepared my steak perfectly as ordered. It's a little on the loud side, but it is a pub.

Love this place for the décor and quality of the food and drink. Service has always been top notch too. Not a place for a large group but a group of 6 is perfect.
