Great Place, Good Time for Everyone!

My only problem with Kelly's is this, it's so good that it's often hard to get into! A menu that everyone will find something they like. Large portions of some very good food is the reason this place is ALWAYS packed. I have yet to have a bad meal here and there is still so much to try. I love... read more

The people that own this place know how to run a restaurant. The place is always busy. The food is good and drinks are reasonable.

Kelly's Tavern is nice restaurant for a quick and filling meal. The ribs were very meaty and the salad bar was a nice addition. I definitely will stop by the next I stay in Quincy.

Kelly's is a great place to eat lunch or supper. They always have a fresh salad bar and the best cinnamon rolls ever! We have gone there in the middle of the afternoon, but the food is always consistently excellent. The servers are pleasant, but do not hoover around your table. They serve alcohol. We love to go there.

Kelly's is a crowded restaurant and bar because the food is good, abundant, and more than reasonable. For newbies, the front door is in the front, but the parking area sort of hides the door. The side door that looks like the front door because it has an awning and a walkway but don't go in that way if you... More

Seems like they are ALWAYS BUSY! That says a lot. There will be probably be a wait between 11:30AM-1 for lunch and 5PM-7PM every night. The chicken fingers basket is AWESOME!! Only $8.99 for 4 huge chicken fingers and homestyle fries w/slaw. MUCH better than Chicks and less expensive ($3 per lip? Uh..no thanks) Tenderloin is very good as well.... More

I love the salad bar, the cinnamin rolls, and most of all the steaks. Been here many times when on business, reasonable prices, great service, great food. Not Michelin fine dining, but a very good steak place

We specifically went to Kelly's for a fried tenderloin sandwich and were as impressed as usual with it. Though it was crowded on a Friday night, we found seats at the bar and ate there. The food came quickly; we each had a tenderloin and shared fries and the food was ample in quantity. I regret reading poor reviews on... More
