When we arrived, it took a few extra moments, for some unknown reason, for the hostess to figure out where to seat us, even though there were plenty of open tables. The server we were matched with was efficient and attentive. My companion ordered the mahi mahi fish tacos, which were quite filling and had an excellent flavor, but were... More

We went here for a special birthday celebration, and it was anything but special. We were not greeted by friendly front desk, just an abrupt and disinterested "hostess" who definitely did not have the "mostest!" Our waitress was completely UN-interested in being a waitress. She did not tell us about any dinner or dessert specials. WE had to ask HER... More

I'm a pretty easy-going reviewer, but there were multiple problems that will preclude our choosing to return to Kelly's. First of all, despite it being 5:57pm, the server told us we were too late to get the dinner specials which ended at 6pm. I wasn't sure if my watch was correct so I didn't question her like I should have.... More

Constantly changing gourmet menu as well as incredible atmosphere if you just want their downsized menu at their upscale bar. If you're anywhere in the State College area, make the 5 minute drive to Boalsburg to go to Kelly's!

My friend and I stopped for lunch and we were very pleased. I had a burger and she had some kind of chopped salad with smoked turkey which she said was delicious. We had the crab cake appetizer and it was really, really perfect. I would get the crab cake sandwich the next time. The server was terrific and he... More

everyone enjoyed their meals. the kobe burgers are very tasty. although huge - 1/2 pound - so there were leftovers to take home. the kelly burger is also very tasty and smaller. and the filet medallions very good. definitely will be going back. the server was very attentive and friendly and efficient.

I realize that by saying that, it comes across as a bit of an anti distinction. However, I like this place. I came here for the first time, not because I herd of it and wanted to try it, but because my usual Friday lunch place was closed, because of a power outage. The food was good and beautifully prepared.... More

On a cold but beautiful winter day 2 days after a 12 inch snowfall, we decided it was a great day to enjoy a drive thru the beautiful Pennsylvania countryside. We picked Boalsburg as the destination and dined at Kelly's for the first time. The restaurant is clean and attractive - many of the wall hangings and some of the... More

My wife and I took in an early dinner at Kelly's. The wait staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was very good as I recall, not sure but I likely had some type of seafood. I'd definitely go back again! Enjoy!

Kelly's is by far our favorite restaurant! we go there regularly. their menu is interesting, it changes, and it's delicious food. It is served by friendly and helpful staff, and they have an early dinner feature that is a terrific bargain if you order by 6pm. You're really missing out if you don't go to Kelly's.
