Kelly's was recommended for its soup and salad bar. It looked great, but I opted for the shrimp basket and my husband had the fish basket instead. Both meals were very good. Staff was helpful and polite. Lots of items of menu so I'm sure we will try Kelly's again.

Food was just ok. I wouldn't go back any time soon . The salad was the best part of the meal , the rest of the meal was not good at all .

The menu is vagaries. Something for every appetite. Their Cheese Soup is legendary as are their cinnamon rolls. Service usually very good. Parking good unless restaurant is very busy.

We ate lunch at Kelley's Tavern in Quincy, IL a few weeks ago and had a very good meal as usual. Kelley's has been in Quincy for quite a few years and has always had exceptional food and service. Often times a little crowed, it is worth the wait. Treat yourself to a good lunch or dinner at Kelley's Tavern.

was looking for a great steakhouse and motel host recommended Kelly's. I would consider it more of a steak house/pub. Has dining area and bar area with seats. Great salad bar with wonderful soups and dessert. Excellent Prime Rib, Best Baked Potato I have had in a long time. Definitely will return next time I'm in the area.

Kelly's offers a variety of food choices. Portions are usually generous. My favorite is the cheese soup on the salad bar. The soup is full of vegetables and pasta and has a wonderful flavor.

I have never had cheese soup before tonight and had no idea what I was missing! As other reviewers stated, the salad bar (included with most dinner entrees) is terrific, with lots of fresh, crisp salad items, two soups (their renowned Cheese soup and a special; tonight's was stuffed pepper soup and it was delicious) fresh bread, hot veggies, pasta,...

The restaurant was very busy. We had a short wait time. The staff was courteous and efficient. If you want a great steak Kelly's is the place to go. The prime rib was awesome. It is definitely a must if you visit Quincy.

I was in quincy for the night with my boyfriend and my 18 month old son and my mom recommended that I try Kellys restaurant as she had been there many times and had always had such a success with the food and the service. So after searching for a restaurant that didn't have a huge wait on a Friday... More
