Kelleys is a great spot for a Friday night fish fry and drinks. I have not been here in a few years and was not disappointed. Waiting time for a table on a Friday night may be the only issue but the owner very friendly found us a quiet booth in the bar area. Waitress was prompt and friendly. I... read more

My husband and I have never been a big fan of Kelley's, but we decided to give it another try. What a mistake!! On our way up the stairs to our table, a busboy had somehow decided that the best place for his bus pan was on top of the staircase. This was obviously not a good idea since we... More

Enjoyed a fabulous smoked brisket sandwich & guinness with my Mom and I cant remember when the corned beef was so rich tender & tasty. They have a great menu including many favorite sandwhiches and hearty meals. Pleasnt of parking easy to find and excellent service! Well be back!

As a proud regular, Kelley's has become our go to bar and restaurant. We have enjoyed many a delicious meal over the years. While we certainly have our favorites, we like to try specials, which never disappoint. The burgers are a family favorite. My kids say the best in town. The food is consistently good. Happy hour is a great... More

We went up for a happy hour drink. They advertise two hamburgers for 2 dollars, so we figured, why not? Well . . . they don't advertise that it starts at 7, which really isn't happy hour, now is it? So at 6, what to do? We ordered two drinks and two appetizers. $35 later, we were not happy after... More

My friend and i went here for dinner. She had been here before and said it was ok food. We sat in the bar area as the place was packed at 7:00 at night. We ended up ordering off the special menu. I encouraged my friend to order the bouillabaisse with saffron sauce special and she said it was very... More

What a difference a year makes. Kelly's a year ago was solid with good service and very accommodating to a large group I had last year, so i figured I 'd give it a try. Big mistake. I'd like to tell you about the food, but after 90 minutes with no entrees (we did get some soup). we cancelled our... More

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.
