We were recommended to Kelly's by the hotel staff for the Salad Bar. On July 4th I was expecting most open resturants to have few customers but this place was packed with locals. The Salad Bar, excellent. The Prime Rib, too fatty, too salty, But very tender and juicy. The service was very good. I... read more

Kelly's has very good salad bar, hot food, and soup. Know for their cheese soup and giant cinnamon rolls. A little crowded side usually.

Kelly's is a typical steak house with a very good soup and salad bar. The cheese soup is a local favorite as are the cinnamon rolls. Generally nothing special in my opinion but a local favorite for the home town crowd. For steak or pork it is OK but nothing special. Try it you may like it but I favor... More

Kelly's is a typical Irish pub. The prices are very reasonable and the food is surprisingly good. The bartender and waitstaff are friendly and attentive. They have several large TV screens near the bar to watch the game. The atmosphere is family friendly up until 8-9 pm when it is more tavern than a restaurant .

Family friendly and good service. Busy, but efficient. A nice central bar, but watch your step getting up or down. Parking is a challenge, partifcularly given the bike rally occupying the entrance area.

You hear about the salad bar here. Really salads with mayo based dressings, Luke warm soups, and just so so hot dishes. 8.99 too much for what you get. Don't think we will be back when the Abbey is a much better place to eat. Just over rated for what you get.

I came late one night but their kitchen was open. I went with the salad bar which is more of a food variety bar. Not a lot of salad ingredients but plenty of cold salads, hot soup, a hot casserole, different breads, and if you have room there are pastries, cookies, and brownies for dessert. Prices low to moderate. Otherwise... More

You could make a meal out of just the salad bar. It offered 2 hot dishes, 2 soups, all the normal salad bar things, and a dessert bar. All salads were homemade and the dressings were as well. LOVED the tenderloin.. very tender and moist. The cheese soup was also delish..! We will def be returning.

My girl friends and I often go to Kelly's. Whether it is a quick bite or a leisurely lunch. The staff are attentive and friendly. The food is always great. It is truly "A fun place to eat and drink".

Kelly's chicken strip salad is the best! For salad bar lovers, their selection can't be best, and who can resist their famous cheese soup or cinnamon rolls as big as your face(as my son put it). They have an extensive menu, so those of us eating lighter can always find a tasty option, and the kids love the chicken strips!
