Went there with my wife to hear the cellist. Did not know what to expect, and was pleasantly surprised. The musician was a very impressive artist and we enjoyed our time there. We only had an appetizer, but it was very good. The servers were...More

We go here at least once every trip down (every year). We’d probably go much more if we lived here. It has a pub atmosphere and has several beers on tap that others SPI bars don’t. Seems a lot of bars down here serve more...More

Wow. When I want to go to a bar with a crowd and awesome music, I’m sure to go to Kelly’s Irish Pub. Younger crowds at night, older crowds during the day, food specials, drink specials, does it get any better than this ?

We went Sunday night to watch the game. Enjoyed a 1/2 rueben sandwich and soup. Great value. Soup was okay, not great though it had a great presentation. Sandwich was ALL meat and really filled me up.

Great vibe, great bar tenders! Cozy place, love how the bartender, Christian, engages with locals and tourists equally. Love the karaoke and the giant beer pong table to engage all customers within the open space room. What a way to break the ice! We left...More

Made me happy. Friendly folks and really good drinks. Didn’t eat because I had already had dinner, just wanted a drink before bed

Rude, disinterested service. Place was empty. No reason to return. Plenty of places on SPI that will act like they at least are glad you stopped in. We will take our business elsewhere.
