“Better than your average Tavern!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Stopped in for lunch after a recommendation by a local. Had a Bloody Mary (not a mix) hubby had a cold beer. Ordered two lunch entres, both were above average both in taste and volume...Owners and servers were very congenial to two newcomers to the area and we will be making Kelly 's a regular stop for us.

Kelly's Tavern has great food with great value. Daily Specials. Great place to cool down after a long day in the heat! The Burgers are yum! I also like to get all you can eat fried catfish!

“Good food, great service”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

This is an excellent place for lunch. Meals are bountiful, service is great. Try the "mini-reuben", it is huge. I can't begin to imagine the "normal" size! You probably won't see Kelly's driving by, so look it up and try it out. Basically, it is just off of highway 278 in Bluffton, just before the bridge to Hilton Head Island.

“Best rest-tavern in county”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

This tavern is strictly local. Staff all have been there for 5 years or more and food is abundant. I cannot finish any entree on the menu.

“Best Reuben”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Even the mini reuben is way to big to eat all at once. I get 3 meals would never attempt the Big one. Great Happy Hour awesome owners and staff. The service is always great.
