A good family meal

We went to Kelly's after a day of school shopping. The appetizers were big (we lived the mushrooms) the service was great, the salad bar excellent and fresh.

When we arrived on a Saturday night at 7:30 we were told there would be a 20 minute wait (acceptable to us). We had just seated our selves at the bar when our name was called and our party of four was escorted to a table. We literally had no time to even order a pre-dinner drink before we were... More

We stopped in on a Saturday at lunch and thought upscale bar food sounded good. This was a real disappointment as the food was all frozen food. I have no idea how this restaurant is rated so well. We ate about half our food and decided to save the calories. This is really just the frozen section of your grocery... More

We went for a family outing. There was a good variety of foods for everyone including vegetarians. Several in my family appreciated the salad bar. The onion rings were especially awesome as were the french fries! I've had better cod with fish and chips, but the tenderloin another family member had was great. Overall it was a good experience for... More

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
