Pleasant meal

I had the crab cakes. They were good but the grilled vegetables that came with them were better. Jasmine rice with ginger was tasty. This was an overpriced dish. My husband had the blackened salmon. He was warned that it was spicy and it was.

The service seemed slow. The restaurant has a pleasant interior with prices that indicate better food. The seafood was not up to ocean side quality, but was above average.

My friends and I were in town for Arts Fest and we usually went to the Gamble Mill, but we heard that they had closed. A friend of ours, who lives in State College told us about Kelly's, so we thought we should check it out and we were very happy that we did. All of our meals were outstanding.... More

This restaurant is charming and provides indoor and outdoor seating. The food was exceptional and included sandwiches and full entrees. It is a little pricey, but the food was well-worth the cost.

I can't believe I've never reviewed this place before - it's my favorite restaurant in State College. I like to go there to celebrate birthdays, and when I retired last year I requested that we hold my work retirement party at Kelly's. I find the food is always reliably delicious and the service is friendly and attentive without being hovering.... More

Interesting way of seating...there was a 20 minute wait as we did not call ahead for reservations. After having a seat at the bar for 20 minutes, we were seated at a table in the bar which we really didn't want, nor were we asked. This table had been vacant since we arrived and one of the people working behind... More

I visit 2 or 3 times a year for business lunches. We have to be assertive to get a quiet corner away from the bar. Hostess accommodates us but not graciously. Food is always good especially the seafood chowder. The specials do vary and show imagination. I do have one complaint...a sign of a really great restaurant is one that... More

I was in the area for business and Kelly's was recommended as the best steak place in the area. It did not disappoint, and I am willing to pay the price for a good piece of beef. I had the New York strip and chowder - both were very good. My friend had the special flank steak. The beer selection... More

This is a place that is outside of State College but not very far. Not a really big place. The food was excellent. Fantastic salmon and the Cajun dishes were great. Waitress was great and took care of everything you needed without hovering over you. Only down side was therewas a wait but the restaurant didn't seem full. Maybe a... More

A great place for a business lunch. The food is always interesting (and there's always something new), the booths are private, and the staff is friendly and helpful.
