My good friend and I wanted to enjoy a drink outside after the Peoria half marathon expo. We went to Kelleher's to enjoy their patio and the beautiful weather. They had Sam Adams Nitro Coffee Ale on special! It was $6 and we got to keep the glass!! Also if we go back, we get $4 refills for the month... More

We visit Kelleher's frequently and enjoy our time there. The food is great - the beer is cold - what more could you ask? The staff are always friendly too. Try the bread pudding!

We were seated immediately in a high traffic area. We politely asked if we could be moved and we were quickly re-seated. Service excellent and our food choices delicious!

Good pub food, great Irish music, lively atmosphere and friendly servers. A great place to stop in when you spend an afternoon or evening walking along the riverfront!

Kelleher's is definitely a local gem in Peoria. When I say it doesn't feel like you're in Peoria, it feels like you're in a fancy downtown local pub somewhere other than country Peoria, or it could even feel like you're out of the country at the local pub! The service was average, but the food is all great. My husband... More

Love this place. Feels like you stepped into a portal into an actual Irish pub. Serves traditional corned beef and cabbage on Saturdays. Yummmm

The night was perfect to dine outside, so I chose Kelleher's for my bday dinner with family. The waiter, Taylor, carded our son twice. He didn't look at the ID the first time, and when he asked to see the id again 10 minutes later, our son showed his ID again- during this second carding, Taylor said "I'm not getting... More

Went here with our family of four and a few friends. The location is right on the railroad tracks and the building looks like a repurposed warehouse. They have a vibrant patio scene with live music and tables. The beer selection is great and the waitstaff was good as well. The food was mediocre at est. But, I guess you... More
