Definite Must Visit

My friend and I enjoyed a lovely lunch on their outdoor deck. A thoroughly enjoyable visit. Very happy with the menu options available.

I like this place but I have found it to be inconsistent. Some visits I'm delighted with the dish and its preparation. But there's been times when I got gristle instead of a steak and my burger was raw.

Every time we have eaten at Kelvan's, it has been a wonderful experience. We usually get a glass of wine, a cup of soup, and split an entrée. Many times Laura has waited on us, but on occasion, others. Super friendly staff. Soup is always hot, entrée always consistent. What more can I say? One of the best places to... More

Quality of food was poor! Apparently this restaurant caters to the near welfare class. Will give service passing grade, but overall a below average establishment.

Quality of food was poor at best. Everyone in our party had plates and utensils from different sets! Service was okay. Will not patronize again.

Recently there on a Tuesday night before a show at the Paramount. Even though it was packed that night, we got our food in a timely manner, and it was good. I love the specials and the choices offered.

Cannot say enough about Kelvans. Fronts on Merchants Row. Terrific menu, great bar, staff is accomodating, friendly and provides excellent service. The fact that it is located in Vermont's First Skyscraper is another plus.

Glad we finally chose to eat here. Four in our party and we all chose entrees off the specials menu. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was attentive, despite the crunch because of the theatergoers, including us. Only thing lacking is some kind of bread, crackers etc. while guests are waiting for the food to arrive. Since we all ordered entrees,... More

My wife and I had a nice dinner. Sat near the bar so could watch the Patriots game. Fries with gravy were better than the classic midway diner ones were. They got Long Trail "sick day" IPA on draft. Nice place for being able to go to experience Rutland Downtown hospitality.

Good quality, fresh food and friendly staff. Restaurant is cozy. Been here a few times and have yet to be disappointed. It's not fancy but I won't hesitate to return.
