Went on a weeknight, got seated upstairs quickly. Service was friendly and efficient. Menu is diverse, grouped into small bites or large plates. Then appetizers, and sharables. Food was good, not great, but certainly a good value for the money. It is not fine dining, but a nice neighborhood pub.

Food is OK, service and hospitality is awful. I visited Kelly's last night, spent the evening with friends on the (small) deck outside. Met some really friendly people (other customers), however the restaurant staff could use some customer service training. They just were not very friendly of accommodating. I would not go back to Kelley's and would not recommend it... More

This place gets it! We can eat the way we want to. The staff is fantastic and they change the menu, beers and wine to stay with the trends while never forgetting the meaning of hospitality;

Had a great lunch with a business associate, always good specials, fast service and fair pricing. Had the daily soup, and salad combo at the new bar surface.

Kelley's serves consistent great food. The reubens are some of the best in business, and the margherita pizza is excellent. During lunch you can get self serve popcorn from an old timey maker and at dinner the rolls are simply divine. I would seriously consider going there just for the rolls. An excellent restaurant that you can't go wrong with.

What a surprise, the old menu was great but it looks like they have made some great improvements and added selections. They have always been a great spot to eat and have a new bar and lots of TV for game time.

Place needs a facelift. Noisy, crowded. Lunch menu was limited and nothing unusual. Food was average, a real disappointment.
