Went there twice for dinner and it was perfect and well priced. Good drinks, food and service. Great venue with a warming fireplace. We shall return and highly recommend.

Friends and I have regularly gone to Kell's while in Portland for business for years. Have never had a bad experience and have been there for lunch, dinner, and just drinks in the later evening. The shepards pie is the best I have ever had and the corn beef and cabbage is excellent. If smoking cigars appeals there is a... More

Not a large or fancy menu, but good food. My wife had Fish & Chips and I had Bangers and Mash. Felt like we were dining across the pond. And by the way, their locally brewed Red Ale was excellent, and they know how to make a good Arnold Palmer too!

We ordered beer and I wasn't told that the recommended beer was in a bottle (I think for a pint-drinker that's a bit of a no-no) but it was delicious beer so that oversight was forgiven. What is NOT forgiven is the waitress not asking how my dinner was (the buffalo chicken wrap) that was absolutely INEDIBLE. I think she... More

We went here after visiting the Portland Saturday Market. Just had beers and some pub snacks. Giants game was on, so the crowd was nice and boisterous. The cigar bar was the main attraction, as it appears to be the only one in Portland. Bring your on though, as their selection was mostly of the showoff, high priced brands.

We were told that we had to go here, Pretty disappointed. Host was not very happy to be at work that day. The menu was discouraging to say the least. We have been to many Irish restaurants and bars and this one is differently on the bottom of the list.

Go HERE! They brew their own beers which are good. Try their alternative to Guiness! I like the lager too. The owner is on premisises. Meet him if you go in! Always packed and fun. Music nightly I believe and outdoor seating in the summer.

Great place for live music. The food is just ok, but we always return because it's a great atmosphere!

We showed up and ordered one or tow of each of the appetizers with some beers and it was fantastic! The staff was fine, a little slow but we were starving and she was way busy so that was probably no big deal. The food was really good and the prices were ok, but we were at happy hour so... More
