Kelly's has a good salad and dessert bar. My husband loves their prime rib. The staff is very friendly . The owner makes it a point to walk around and interact with his patrons, which hardly happens at establishments anymore. Great place to get together with friends and family.

Not a chain. They have HUGE, fabulous cinamon rolls on their buffet. It is not a huge buffet and the place is crammed to the gills. Menu food is good as well.

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.

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.
