Good food, good price, good service!

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... read more

Kelly's is known for their Irish atmosphere. There is a bar in the middle of the place that is good to visit with friends and have a few drinks. The salad bar is pretty good but can get congested with people. I wouldn't want to sit at a table near it! The cheese soup is wonderful. Sometimes, we will get... More

Pork chop was the special. Looked awesome. I had the tenderloin and steamed veggies. Both were the best I've ever had. Thickest breaded tenderloin unless you cut your own. Don't miss this place.

Kelly's Tavern in Quincy Illinois has food for all taste buds. They have Burgers, Sandwiches, Steak, Seafood, Pasta. Their Cheese soup is out of this world and a fully stocked salad bar to go with. I have sampled many of their selections and never been disappointed. They have such a great selection, I can't imagine anyone not being able to... More

Really good food with a soup and salad bar that pretty good too. Had a buffalo chicken sandwich with bean soup and salad bar. Awesome meal at a good price. In town on business so like that you can sit at the bar and eat. Good service, good beer.

Kelly's is a very popular restaurant in Quincy. It is locally owned so is one of a kind. But they don't take reservations so you will probably have to wait to be seated. The salad/food bar is one of a kind and the giant homemade cinnamon rolls are famous.

Kelly's has been around and is a local staple. We love the atmosphere. Reminds me of "Cheers" The food is good weather you order off the menu or try the salad bar. Everything we have tried has been good. Kelly's is great place to go if you're looking for a nice hometown atmosphere, low key, bar/Resturant.

Kelley's is a very popular restaurant in Quincy, IL and a great place to eat either lunch or dinner. It can be crowded at times. The food is always good and the service is excellent. Prices are reasonable too. The restaurant is located on Broadway, one of the main streets in Quincy.
