the staff are friendly the menu is a bit more expensive than a pub meal , it can get noisy when families dine , I didn't think it was too outstanding.

There were a few people there but plenty of empty tables, but we were told that they were all booked,!!!!so ordered a drink and some wedges, and found some bar stools in the little area by the open fire. Lucky for us it was still happy hour, so... More

What a great relaxing pub/bar. The history of the place and the atmosphere is very cool and relaxing. Like being away at a cabin retreat with beer and great food. Plenty of local and boutique beers and the food is really well priced and a good size. Staff and management are really friendly. Watched some great life local music which... More

Enjoyed a great Saturday night dinner (best to make an advance booking) - excellent food, great and friendly service (thanks Jennifer!). Solo artist was playing that night which added to the relaxed and casual atmosphere - a warm and cosy place, perfect for escaping a cold winter's night.

Celebrating grandson's 18th birthday with family and close friends at Kelly's Olinda, everyone had a great time and there were no complaints with the food or service. There is a wide variety of food which catered for GF and vegetarians in our party. The prices for both food and wine was good and the staff were efficient and attentive, even... More

If you're in the Danenongs and looking for a great restaurant, give Kelly's in Olinda a try. This venue, located pn the Mt Dandenong Tourist Road is certainly on my visit for a re-visit. Not only is the food fabulous but that along with the welcoming staff make this restaurant a must do when in the area.

The food here can be great ... Or not (it depends on the vibe in the kitchen). Music can be awesome, some amazing acts but you need to search it out because it's not well advertised ... A good thing cos you can go in and hear an amazing act and it's not crowded. It can be cold in there... More

You know that feeling when you go somewhere for dinner and the meal is just amazing. We recently ate at Kelly's on a Sunday evening. We both had fillet steak, it was a reasonable size and mine was accompanied by a delicious peppercorn sauce ( also a reasonable amount). I also received some scalloped potatoes, diced roast pumpkin and steamed... More

Great food and lovely atmosphere. Had a few drinks in front of the open fire after a beautiful drive to the Dandenongs!

First visit to the Kelly's Bar and I would definitely return due to the good food, service and atmosphere. Lucky our friends booked a table on this cold winters night as it is a happening little place on a Friday. The meals are a great size and we suggest the Wagyu Burger and Chicken Parma, but there is a lot... More
