My wife and I went to Kelly's for date night on a Friday night and were very disappointed. I don't have any problems paying a premium for a premium steak, however the price and the food quality didn't correlate. My wife had a filet and I had a NY Strip and neither steak was even up to Outback standards. Expect... More

Kelly's is our "go to" restaurant in the State College area, for special family occasions as well as informal meals with friends. It's family friendly and the staff has cheerfully welcomed our babies and toddlers. It's just as great for more relaxed adult dining. The menu is extensive; our absolute favorites are the chop-chop salad, the tenderloin teriyaki and baked... More

I made a reservation because PSU was playing a home game against OSU. This was one of the busiest PSU weekends! We were able to get a reservation about 3 days in advance. We ordered steak, ravioli, prawns, wine etc... Everything was excellent! The food and the service were top notch. I ate the filet medallion with lobster sauce. It... More

Before 6pm special includes dinner, soup or salad and dessert. The fish was excellent served with mashed potatoes and vegetables.

Went to Kelly's on a special event weekend in town. Called a few days ahead and made reservations. Probably did not need to as there were many open tables. The special event was a home football game and that brings well over 100,000 people into State College, Pa. I am sure most other restaurants had at least an hour wait... More

After waiting about 10 minutes for a table with a potential 45 minute wait, we headed to the bar for dinner. The three of us shared a calamari which was less than impressive. Not a big helping and odd shape for calamari. The salad part of the plate was the most impressive part. Grandson had a Kelly's Cut filet mignon.... More

I saw a lot of negative reviews and I was hesitant to eat here. We were up to visit my daughter at PSU and she made the reservation. We had a very nice meal. We started out with the crab dip appetizer which was very good. Our waiter steered us away from the calamari. My wife and daughter shared the... More

We were just back to State College for a football game and had reservations with another couple for this restaurant. It has changed hands several years ago, since we were taking our youngest to school at PSU, and for the better! Completely redecorated and expanded from our 15 year old memory, we were delighted. Two of us had an evening... More

This place came with a recommendation by family members. We went on the Sunday Labor Day weekend and the place was mostly empty. The food was a disappointment. The calamari appetizer was strange--shaped like coated french fries and totally limp, I'm not 100% sure it was really calamari. My sesame-coated salmon was previously frozen and overcooked, with its deficiencies hidden... More

Our family had the opportunity to eat dinner at Kelly's last week while we were moving our son into his new apartment. We arrived at the restaurant around 8pm and were seated right away. Our server was attentive and was helpful with suggestions of what to eat. When our meals arrived, we found the portions to be robust. My son... More
