I ate at the pub next door last night, so tonight decided to try Kelly's for a little compare and contrast. I like Kelly's better. Kelly's is more pub than next door. There are TV's, a large well stocked bar and a definite bar over...More

This quaint pub isn't fancy, but the "pork slap" sandwich is one of the best I've had. It's got slaw and a hint of jalapeño with aioli on the side. It was really good! I also drank some of the best Ginger Ale that I've...More

Draft beer was watery. Service fine. Outdoor tables were fun. Starts to get busy after 8 or 9 pm. Quiet enough to talk business over beers.

Great fish & chips, and a properly-pulled Guinness (at least for US standards). I've never had anything here that I didn't like. The servers are always great; I always have a great time when I come here to grab a beer after work.

This is not an Irish pub by any standard. The sheppard pie was nothing I would call Irish. Globally ridiculous food like a cheese burger or pulled pork sandwich. We had way better food in any pub in Ireland .

This place is the same as it was 20 years ago. Solid service, good beer and pub food. Not fancy, but reliably good. The portabella mushroom sandwich was not bad. A short walk from union station
