After eating here I'm reminded of the saying, "Go big or go home." The portions are incredible. More importantly, the food was delicious. This is not your typical Irish Pub. This is home made comfort food at it's best. The staff was very friendly. The hostess stopped by several times to make sure every thing was to our liking. For... More

There are numerous unique restaurants in the Mt. Washington Valley and this is one of the best! The staff is exceptional, the food is excellent (with huge portions) and the prices are extremely reasonable. This particular night we were seated in the small dining room which has a fireplace. What better setting on a frigid winter evening! Highly recommended!

We had dinner here on Thursday Feb 2nd and they had a great 2-fer deal including starter, main, and dessert. I had the Turkey dinner (yummo) and the wife the fish. Both were very good. We were so full we took the cheesecake dessert home and ate them the next day at the mountain while skiing.

May Kelly's has great food, friendly service, and the ultimate Irish pub atmosphere (this may be due to the fact that the owners are actually from Ireland). I have had dinner there on numerous occasions and have never had a negative experience. During the summer the deck offers spectacular views of New Hampshire's White Mountains and in the wintertime it's... More

This is my hands down favorite restaurant in the valley. The seafood Reuben is my favorite. I love the waitstaff. There are a lot of long term employees. I strongly suggest giving them a try.

Love, love this place. It's like family now. I never had a bad meal. Last night I had their salmon special. It was out of this world. This was their best salmon special yet. Perfectly cooked and a big piece. We are always greeted with a friendly welcoming face

Excellent food, comfortable atmosphere, great service. We had chicken pot pie, fresh pear salad, and apple crisp, all exceptional.
