Eclectic place on Kelleys

Cute restaurant about a block up Division Street, great views of the downtown and lakefront. I had the bison burger and my wife had the buttermilk fried chicken sandwich. Both were wonderful. Excellent coffee as well.

Had a great lunch! Bison burger with a scrumptious noodle side dish. Menu was very nice and more on a healthy approach to dining. Thanks to the new managers, this is a hit and ur staff was very very good.

The menu is not extensive but all homemade. The mussels were large in portion and size. Very equal to the best in Boston. The salads were fresh and large portion. We all had the homemade strawberry shortcake and was fabulous. We were told all desserts are homemade and very good but cannot comment personally.

These guys do a nice job of bringing good food to Kelleys Island. Menu is not the typical bar food you find at most of the other island eateries. The patio is comfortable, and a great place to stop for a drink with friends. Depending on the bartender, the drinks range from good to very good. Always fun.

I almost didn't eat at the Island House. I went there one night and left after a few minutes when nobody acknowledged me. But I tried it again, and I'm glad I did. Most of the seating is outdoors, though there is a small no-frills dining room plus tables in the bar. If you want ambiance, sit outside on a... More

On our annual visit to Kelley's Island, we had dinner at Kelly's Island House. There were 19 of us but they were able to accommodate us outside with an adult table and a kid's table. The service was outstanding, the waitress was not overwhelmed by the number in our party. For cocktails, the kids ordered Shirley Temples. When they needed... More

I gave the title "Best Food on the Island" because it has the best menu for dinner on the island while I still consider it average. We ate at the restaurant two nights. The first night we enjoyed small plates including three types of hummus, mussels and salad. All were good. We asked for the salad to be served first... More

The food was very good and the waitstaff very accommodating. They permit smoking on the patio where food is also served. That detracted from the visit.
