A few more wait staff would help!

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... read 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.

We try to visit the area around St. Patricks Day just to order their Emerald Isle burger special because it's soooo amazing! Good waitstaff, nice decor and easy parking, just outside of State College. It's an easily recognizable spot, just look for the gigantic bull on the roof!

went there for lunch last Saturday. I got the Kobe burger and my husband got the Reuben. Both were very good!!! The baked beans side was very good also! Waitress was friendly and attentive. We were alittle confused the last time we went there for lunch. Went in the front door and it was deserted, no hostess. Ended up going... More

Kelly's does so many things well. We especially look forward to their well prepared steaks. The atmosphere in the back dining room is neighborhood like and a bit noisy. Dining out front is more quiet and subdued without TV's. A Greek Kobe Flank and a Delmonico were our choices this time. They were large and delicious. Attentive staff, creative menu,... More

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
