We were lucky to get four seats in the bar on a Friday night. Our server was helpful and friendly. At her suggestion I tried a blueberry martini and it was delish. We started with onion rings and they were great. The sandwiches , salads and fish dinner my husband had were all great. We can't wait to return.

Having walked out of a horrendous pub/restaurant down the road we are so glad we found May Kelly's as the experience was absolutely brilliant. From the moment we arrived, we were treated as very valued customers and it was clear that we would be welcomed as friends as much as paying tourists by Mary and her team. I had the... More

The food was amazing, the atmosphere was great, the restaurant was cozy and quaint with the traditional Irish setting. Mary, (I believe the owner) was welcoming and sweet, I will definitely be back. You will love it here.

Stopped in here twice over the weekend. Sat at bar as we do whenever possible. Always the best service that way. The four bar tenders we witnessed were thorough and very friendly. Diverse menu. Food was very good. Good sized portions. Not the best tap list I have seen but more than enough and varied choices. Sandwiches were huge. And... More

This was an awesome place - very relaxed, casual, Irish themed place. Nice atmosphere. The waitress was extremely professional and well versed in the ingredients of the dishes / we have one gluten intolerant person - one vegetarian in our group of 4 - all questions were politely answered and if our waitress wasn't sure, she inquired and came back...

A very unique eating establishment. I had a Seafood Reuben which was excellent. My husband had a Bleu Burger which he liked. Aside from the food, they also have a great assortment of Irish brews and whiskey for those who enjoy a drink beforehand. The pub area was full. The music was typical Irish ballads and their was a lot... More

We have been a fan of May Kelly's for many years and it is still one of our favorites. Consistent in excellent food, service, atmosphere and congeniality. We always recommend May Kelly's to new comers and our guests. Bravo to the friendly and warm Proprietors and their staff.

Wonderful food and helpful serving staff. Choice of food is varied and tasty. We wanted to eat here after eating here earlier in the week and had to wait 30 to 40 mins on a Saturday night, but it is worth the wait. The décor is a museum in itself and I could have spent hours there on its own.... More
