I decided to try Kelvin's because they are very generous and donate free meals every week to hospice patients I serve through an organization called Dinners with Love. Some local restaurants have limits and restrictions of how much they will donate and how often, but Kelvin's lets hospice patients order off the menu every week and they hand me the... More

I'm a fan of the onion soup and huge salad. My associate attacked a good size burger and was pleased. A good lunch option in Rutland. Service was adequate...not warm and... More

Our server Laura had a snappy wit that we appreciated. I had the Pork Tostada special and hubby had the Chicken Club. Both were great! Nice house pinot grigio and a couple beers rounded out the meal. Would definitely come back again.

One of my favorite places in downtown Rutland to eat. I especially love the Ahi tuna. The staff is friendly, and service is great.

Have visited Kelvan's several times over the years and it remains cosistantly very good. They have a very inviting menu that is easy to follow, has a good assortment of favorites and they cook and serve with a flair that is not often found. This time around we had the Caesar salad with salmon, a quesadilla with shaved steak, a... More
