Enjoyed dinner at May Kelly's last week. Food and service were excellent. For appetizer we had a sampler where we tasted stew, chicken pot pie, and shepherds pie and another was spare ribs. All were incredible. The bread pudding for desert was a fabulous ending to a perfect meal.

This restaurant is true Irish cuisine. Bangers and mash taste just like you get in Ireland. Make sure you pick a good day and get a table on the back deck. Great view and great food! The food here is awesome, and the Irish owner is almost always the hostess. Definitely worth a visit. Also, check out the pub, on... More

We where recommended May Kellys by the ButtonWood Inn by our hosts. And everything they said about it was true. The food was delicious and the atmosphere made you feel like you where in Ireland at one of the pubs. Definitely recommend visiting them for some good grub!

We stopped here for dinner, and I'm really glad we did. Everyone was friendly, and the interior was really cool. Everything we ordered was great, the meatloaf, taste of Ireland, the kids had ziti (lol, but they loved it). Chicken pot pie was so good, my husband loved the shepherds pie (made with lamb which he loves but I'm not... More

We were recommended to eat here by Rick, at Farm by the River Inn, and the food was delicious. The portions were also rather grand. I recommend either the shepherd's pie or beef stew, but I don't believe you can go wrong. Beer selection is good, and the place was family friendly. Parking is tough at a busy dinner time,... More

Well, who ever said the Irish can't cook is WRONG! This place is soooo delicious. Being here on our summer vacation, we decided to give May Kelly's a try due to the great reviews. Man oh man, was I happy that we made that decision. Everything that I and my family had was delicious. I ordered their Fish and Chips... More

The decor both inside and out is noteworthy! Neat entryway where you travel down a hallway to be seated. We were seated outside on a lovely porch for our meal, where the view of the mountains were beautiful and the atmosphere quite nice. The servers were so attentive and so friendly, we felt very welcomed. Now the food! Steaks were... More
