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!

Had lunch. My brother in laws Reuben was really good and large. Our Greek salads needed a better dressing and we thought a Greek salad should have had Greek olives and better type of lettuce. Restaurant had a rancid oil smell but it was a bar, after all.

Kelly's has some of the best lunch in the lowcountry. I've never had a bad meal. Get them to make you a real Cherry Coke, it's wonderful, with real cherries.

Ordered two lunch entres, both were above average both in taste and volume...Owners and servers were very congenial to two newcomers to the area and we will be making Kelly 's a regular stop for us.

Kelly's Tavern has great food with great value. Daily Specials. Great place to cool down after a long day in the heat! The Burgers are yum! I also like to get all you can eat fried catfish! The local favorite is the Rueben!. Friendly clean atmosphere. Try it Ya'll will like it.

This is an excellent place for lunch. Meals are bountiful, service is great. Try the "mini-reuben", it is huge. I can't begin to imagine the "normal" size! You probably won't see Kelly's driving by, so look it up and try it out. Basically, it is just off of highway 278 in Bluffton, just before the bridge to Hilton Head Island.
