Very enjoyable.

Has a nice buffet with good food.. but the PEACH COBBLER is why we go here.. its just perfect. This is usually the first restaurant we hit when we are in Charleston visiting my brother.

If you are looking for real down home southern BBQ this is the place to go. My son told me about Kelly's he said it was the best so I took his advice and brought my entire family out for dinner. The 10 of us enjoyed great food in a family friendly atmosphere. Be sure to try the desserts.

Unsure what was actually offered as... More

My family and all. My friends love Kelly's! Great for when you are I the mood for Barbeque or country cooking. They have a ton of sides and at least three different meats on the buffet. Kelly's is open Wednesday through Saturday for lunch and dinner. (It gets crowded around 6:00 pm.) They only offer a buffet, though you can... More

I've passed by Kelly's many times in the past but never took the opportunity to try them until a business associated suggested having lunch there. Billed as a Barbeque joint, but it is more of a mixed all you can eat buffet, mostly vegetables, casseroles, salad fixings, deserts, with fried & baked chicken, pulled pork and ribs - all pretty...

This is what I was expecting from southern BBQ, brisket s tender and the pull pork delicious. I order take out and when I got there the restaurant was inviting and clean. Staff was happy to please me with my order. I will definitely go back.

I live in Wisconsin with family in the area. We visit Kelly's every time we're in the area. We've even brought frozen barbeque brought up to us. The mustard sauce is amazing. I would put it on everything if I could. They offer a variety of sides and desserts on the buffet. Nice, casual barbeque buffet. If only this could... More
