A favorite of Quincy natives

Excellent salad bar with huge home made cinnamon rolls. Also includes soup and entree. Also many other entree choices at reasonable prices. Very limited draft beer options.

Yes!!! Yes!!! Yes!!! I have visited Kelly's four times since arriving in Quincy. The staff is super friendly and attentive. The salad bar is clean, diverse, and can we please talk about the cheese soup and cinnamon rolls??? I've tried the club sandwich - so amazing, fresh, and unbelievably yummy. The crab and club salads are huge, and the homemade... More

1st time visit to Kelly's Tavern and Quincy. We were looking for a non-chain place to eat on the way home and found Kelly's. We loved the food and the decor. One could tell this is a popular local place. It was packed from the time we arrived until we left.

Was in Quincy on biz and hit Kelly's on the strength of the TA reviews which didn't let me down. It was a weekday night and the place was full of locals - mostly families - and a kind of a place where neighbors and friends gather. I went for their salad bar although the other menu choices appeared tantalizing... More

They have a menu that has something for everyone. They have a salad bar which seems to be all inclusive. The most popular item is the very large homemade rolls.

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 was concerned when a small... 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.
