Lunch hour specials daily. Get there early, they run out! Good food. Had a corned beef sandwich, had to take 1/2 home. Next time we share. Nice atmosphere and large bar seating area.

My husband loves to go to little local bars. I am not a fan. However, on a recent business trip to Hilton Head Island, we went to Kelly's. We had seen it advertised in a local "to do" book. Just looking at the outside, I was not eager to eat lunch there. It is a small place that almost didn't... More

We have been here three or times for evening sandwiches and a beer. The beer is always good but the sandwiches not so much. There is usually 6-10 of us and seating is never a problem, server attentive, but the meal varying degrees of good. Price is ok but value is not.

Food is good and very reasonable in price. The service is friendly. Come and join the locals who eat here regularly. They have good sandwiches and other pub food. Their special giant sandwiches with Irish names are a real treat. Come when you are hungry.

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.
