We were on a little vacation so found Kelly's. It was very busy and they may have been understaffed but we were in no hurry. Bang bang shrimp was good and so was the pulled pork reuben. Server was great as well.

We’ve been here before Covid lockdown, and it was good. But last night is was bad. The waitress seemed very distracted, we wanted barbecue sauce with our cheese curds. And when we got them there was none. She didn’t know the light beers on tap,...and when I ordered a Coors light she came back and told me they were out. She doesn’t know the menu either, cause when I ordered she couldn’t find it on her hand held device. Husbands food was ok, my food was “charred” but tasted more like burnt. And my fries were cold. She never came and asked us how are food was. And when we were ready for the check, she wanted to hand her little device to us. We were paying cash. Anyway needless to say we won’t be back.More

Recommended to us by front desk at Nichols Inn, and did not disappoint. Amazing haddock and fries (and we are English so that says a lot). I'm a vegetarian and there were good options for me too. All staff members were lovely, and it has...a great, American feel which we appreciate whilst roadtripping in the country. Wish we could go again!More

Enjoyable experience every time I have eaten here. Good burgers although I wish the patties were a bit thicker. Fish fry Friday’s is also enjoyable. Of course what I really enjoyed was their beer list which is quite extensive. Combining all of this makes this...establishment one of the best in Red Wing.More

Let’s start with the positives: patio was great and the entertainment was superb. Guess that’s it. Now for the negatives: Food: The special on Thursday was a rack of ribs, unfortunately they were not ready and server said she had no idea how long before...they would be ready. We settled on a chicken dinner and a sirloin steak dinner. Chicken was over deep fried, tough and dry; baked potato was so cold butter would not melt on it. Sirloin steak was a strange looking cut for a sirloin. It was extremely tough, overcooked and lacked taste. Baked potato on this meal was also cold. If you could give a negative rating for food this restaurant would certainly receive it. Conclusion: The only reason to go back to this restaurant would be to listen to the entertainment but definitely not to order the food.More

Tony, our server, was fantastic! Several of our choices were unavailable and one item wasn’t exactly what was ordered. However we had a great time, the beer was cold, the onion rings were great and Tony kept things lively and us laughing.

The waitress was super efficient and fun! She had great suggestions from the menu, and was spot on with her descriptions. We sat on the deck and enjoyed the sunset over the marina! We had a delicious "boxcar" pizza with good crust and lots of...toppings, and the halibut dinner with cheezy potatoes and roasted California Blend veggies....all so very, VERY excellent. The beer batter on the fish was oh, so good!!!More

Great burgers, great service. The local “hang-out” crowded with people of all ages. Reminds you of college pizza joints.

Located just off the Mississippi River, Kelly's Tap House is a great place for lunch with friends. The atmosphere was lively, the pizza was delicious and the service was as expected.

I wanted to love this place but it didn't come to pass. I liked the atmosphere, pretty good service, a nice view but...the food was weak. 1. Bang bang shrimp- excellent 2. Fried pickles- below average 3. 60/40 Burger- not good. Dry, very salty, tasted...like it was leftover from last week. 4. Jalapeno Popper Burger- not good. Same as above. 5. Onion Rings- very good. I will say the decor in the men's room is cool enough to at least stop by for a drink. Food overall is not recommended.More

We were taking a ride to enjoy the river bluffs and wanted to stop for lunch in this area. I guess we should've known it was more of a bar for the locals. Very loud. We were showed to a table with a nice view...of the river so that was a plus. The waitress took our drink orders and came back 20 minutes later. Disappeared again and finally came back for order and that showed up in 45 minutes. Salads ok, those who had burgers said they were so-so and cold fries. Glad we have plenty of other choices and don't have to go back.More

They were out of French fries so we substituted for baked potatoes they come to the table sliced in half and they were rotten. I am not sure how to cook or serve or could even do this. We ask for replacements 20 minutes later...nothing came she came back instead of I guess their out of those now. She deducted $2 I ask for sauce for my chicken Melt it never came, sandwich was gone. I used some of my friends salad dressing she also requested more. Tired of waiting just left. Not the waitresses fault it's the establishment one waitress outside on the patio for 10 to 15 tables. Poor service Which What's the restaurant's fault for not having ample staff. The food no excuse, out of the sausage and no fillets. Don't remember ever this bad.More

Kelly's has an extensive menu with lots of different options. My patty melt was good along with the slice of turtle cheesecake I ordered. My vegan friend enjoyed the walnut burger. I was very surprised how packed the inside of the restaurant was. Every table...was filled and there wasn't one open seat at the bar. I feel I am pretty Covid comfortable, and I've been dining out, but the inside of the restaurant seemed very full for social distancing standards. Thankfully we were able to sit outside. Because the restaurant was so busy, I think out waitress was overwhelmed. Once the food was delivered, she never came to check on us besides to deliver our bill.More
