“Good beer selections and food. Great atmosphere.”
Reviewed February 21, 2012

Kelleher's is a great place to gather with friends - many downtown, after work drop-ins. To get a seat at the bar, you may have to sneak out of the office early. You park across the street in a large lot and cross Water St., so it's not a downtown parking hassle. We have found it's a good place to go between church weddings and downtown receptions that start later. Their landscaping outside is terrific; it' s very nice when the weather allows outdoor seating. Have had to deal with bartender attitudes - which is why I don't give their service high marks. Otherwise, this is a nice, adult place to go.

“Food was okay...nothing to get excited about”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

We wait over 30 minutes for our food and some of it was not what was ordered and had to wait additional time. It was over 90 minutes before everyone had their food.

“Slow service but good food”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

The service was slow-- our food took a long time to arrive, but was quite tastey and hot when served.The beer selection was awesome and the bar looks to be quite popular with the younger (college-aged) crowd. 
We were there on a Sat. night, so it may have been busier than during the week.

“Luck of the Irish is available to all!”
Reviewed January 6, 2012

Great food, and a wonderful, authentic feel to this fine Irish "pub"!! One of the finest Irish pubs I've visited, with great food and excellent value. Plenty of free parking just across the street!

“Cold fresh beer”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

This place has good food but we enjoy the bartenders and all of the different choices of draft beer. Nice atmosphere where they know how to pour a Guiness.
