Went with friends. Had never been there before. The women had a scallop dish which was $25 for 4 scallops. (I didn't know we were in NYC.) The men had the filet, which was good if it had been a sirloin. Way too chewy/stringy for a filet. We had carrot cake for dessert that came with ginger ice cream. The... More

Our group of 13 enjoyed the privacy of a side room, and an outstanding server who was calm yet efficient, helpful and pleasant, and handled separate checks easily. I was unfortunately disappointed in my crab cakes. I have ordered them many many places over the years and these were just okay, rather bland and not worth the $27 price tag,... More

Had a delicious lunch including soup and salad. Quiet atmosphere where you can enjoy a pleasant conversation without external noise. Our server was prompt, courteous and well groomed.

We met another couple at Kelly's for dinner. None of us had been here before, but will be returning. The food was outstanding and the waitress was very pleasant and efficient in serving our needs. All four of us ordered different entrees, and we all left completely satisfied with our selections. That is rare to find in one restaurant !... More

We had an impromptu group lunch after a morning conference; while the main restaurant wasn't open during lunch, they made room for our large group which also gave us some privacy from the other diners. There was something for everyone on the menu that day, including their specials. I can't tell you how pleased I was with my Farm Salad... More

Truly outstanding food. We had to wait almost 45 minutes to get in -- we didn't have reservations -- but the food was worth it. Nice wait staff, excellent drinks. Will definitely be back - and will make reservations next time.

I called there about six months ago asking about having a party there for my Mom's 80th that would be attended by about 20 folks. They said they had a room and would just take a reservation. I asked, is that it. Yup, no problem. A few days before the party, I called again to confirm they still had it... More

Service was great, food was great, wine was great! What more can I say!? Highly recommend trying any "special" dinner they have.

Kelly's has earned a well-deserved reputation as a go-to steakhouse for lunch and dinner. The Boalsburg landmark also features great seafood and pasta dishes, like homemade crab cakes in Old Bay seasoned panko breadcrumbs. The service is excellent and friendly. Patrons are a combo of local regulars and travelers to Penn State, which is five miles north.

2nd visit to Kelly's with friends on business. I was also there in January and recommended Kelly's to my friends. We had a great meal and great service.
