Nice mix of bar and restaurant atmosphere, food good

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... read more

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.

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!

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.
