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.

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;
