I go on Thursdays night. All you can eat Fried Catfish. The best in the low country. Also, the pecan pie is on top of my desert list. Great Sweet Tea. Its all good even the barbeque.

This is a buffet and uses styrofoam plates and plastic silverware, so don't expect anything fancy. Given that, the food is pretty good. The pork was good, but we weren't impressed by the brisket. But then we are used to traveling to Texas for Beef Brisket BBQ. We enjoyed alot of the sides. Especially the cabbage casserole and the corn... More

This is an old favorite of ours that still has great BBQ and the best brisket. Their fried chicken is great, too. Buffett style with a bunch of side choices. Good southern home cookin. The brisket melts in your mouth.

On Thursday evenings this restaurant has all you can eat catfish. They are fried to perfection and have a great taste. There is also BBQ, but on Thursdays the catfish are my favorites.

Not a bad price but the brisket was dry. Bbq was great as well as the other sides... the dining was quaint and very relaxing.

Kelly's advertises as a BBQ place, but the only near-BBQ on the buffet was pulled pork. There were nearby pitchers of BBQ sauce offered in regular (tangy with vinegar) , mustard and hot. For the price, I would have liked real china and silverware,but styrofoam plates and plastic utensils ruled. The buffet offerings were the usual Southern dishes: slaw, potato... More

I have been to Kelly’s BBQ many times in the past few years. Their southern style food tastes good, has a wide variety of choices, and plenty of it. The buffet price $11.35 per person (with tax) is very reasonable because it does include a drink and self-serve-everything style means no waitress to tip. There is a tip jar by... More

I revisited Kelly's again just to see if they are still doing well. I was not disappointed. The line was backed up a little that night, which is a good sign they must be doing something right. Kelly's has been around Summerville for years and years. The food is always hot, tasty, and lots of things to choose from. The... More

Its ok, not the best, not the worst. I stopped going when we got Bessinger's close by. The bbq is just off to me. They do have a large buffet but the price is so high. Not worth it to me!

One of my favorite places to eat real southern food for a great value. Collard greens are cooked to perfection! Not to mention the banana pudding and corn bread!
