Having been disappointed recently at Pig n Whistle, we looked for an alternative for the annual celebratory adult birthday dinner evening. We had heard good reports about Kelly's; but we ended up being disappointed in several ways. We arrived at 6pm to eat without delay and finish up before the dinner crowd in case the service dropped off (but we... More

We are locals and go to Kelly's quite a lot for dinner. The wait staff are always friendly and welcoming, and the food is always delicious! We've taken my father in law and never had any problem with his GF needs. My husband loves their range of beers, they've always got a local boutique beer for him to try.

Visited here a few times for some drinks and found it to be a great little pub. Good beer selection & nice staff. Even enjoyed the Open Mic night we stumbled in to.

Sat outside for lunch, every time somebody flushed the toilet you could smell sewage, a tad off putting to say the least when you are dining. Chips with cheese, gravy and bacon? We ordered it out of curiosity, not great. Battered coconut prawns and scallops - WAY too much batter and barely any salad. Bruschetta dry as old boots. Nice... More

We've been here a few times, the food is always good and service helpful and friendly but not intrusive. It's also a nice place to stop for just a drink, half the restaurant is simple bar and you could be in an old English pub!

My husband, myself and our 7 month old baby stopped in at the Kelly for lunch on Sunday while taking a drive around the Dandenong's and we were pleasantly surprised by the great food, friendly and quick staff. The staff were really quick to find a highchair and bring the menus to us. Once we decided on our meals (pork... More
