Stopped for lunch, to say hi to Paul and to set up a reservation for 20 of us at Happy Hour. Food is always great, simple and plenty of it. Have the Rueben....you will not forget it!

Four of us met at Kelly's for an early dinner on a Saturday night. We had never been. The driveway is hard to spot and they are around the side of the building just off Route 278 at the first light before the Hilton Head Island bridge. As I don't drink beer I asked about wines and got a verbal... More

Kelly's has a large bar and a good number of tables for their customers. The appetizer and sandwich menu is good, simple and varied. We had the potato skins which were good, as well as chicken fingers, which we really liked. The mozzarella sticks are also good, and their burgers are 1/2 pound and cooked with various toppings. Service was... More

Don't be fooled by my title as all I was trying to get across is that Kelly's is exactly what it is....a tavern. However, having said this you wont find many places that have this good tavern food. Everything from the sandwiches,burgers,salads, wraps, and yes even escargots are very good. There are also some nice entree items to choose from.... More

Bonnie is great and had a piled high corned beef on rye with fries and could only eat half - what a deal - super food and service with friendly patrons and staff.

Very cold beer, and very large sandwiches at a fair price...if you are looking for a 'locals' place, this is one.

I do not care for rye bread or Swiss cheese but love a good Reuben. Go figure! So after reading the reviews I had to try it. I opted for the small one. It is not a grilled sandwich per se, but served open face, which is unusual, on a slice of bread. It was very hot with lots of... More

I was in the mood today for a good hamburger In the Bluffton area and consulted Trip Advisor for recommendations . I ended up at Kelly's Tavern and was not disappointed. The atmosphere is strictly no frills , good beer, and good comfort food. My bacon cheeseburger was well- prepared and good sized. I will certainly consider a return visit... More

If you're hungry, this is the place to go. The "MINI" Reuben was enormous - my husband and I could split it. It was piled with meat and absolutely delicious. We also enjoyed the Buffalo wings - crispy and tasty! Service was very attentive and friendly. We'll be back!
