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.

Probably one of the best restaurants I never knew about. What a great place! The food is great and the staff is fantastic. Not the easiest place to find if you are from the east side of Syracuse but well worth venturing out there. Can't wait to go again.

While our children were growing up, Kelley's was always our "go'to" place for a family celebration. Life being what it is, we just hadn't been there for a what seemed like ages. With our daughter getting married soon, and other life events, we visited again as a family and were delighted to find some things being the same as we... More
