My husband and I were full from eating dinner elsewhere. We came for the music, so I can't review the food. Our drinks were excellent. My husband is an aficionado of whiskey. He sampled their impressive list. I had an Irish coffee. Good thing we were walking! LOL! The band that night was Whisky Minstrels. They are a duo with... More

Fabulous place to stop on a chilly, rainy evening. Really enjoyed the Whisky Minstrels (live music duo). Love that the music started early enough in the evening to enjoy a late dinner (9 pm). Good Irish red, excellent cheese plate, and tried a delicious Farl wrap (potato bread savory wrap). The irish coffee/Baileys drink was good- would have been great... More

Stop in at Kells for a pint and you will feel like you are at a neighborhood pub in Ireland. The patrons are very friendly and the bar staff efficient.

The Guinness was sour and the service was terrible. Firstly, it was a chilly day and we were forced to sit by the door. We asked if we could move to a table near the back but were told "no." The server was very inattentive, often leaving the table when one of us was mid-sentence. My food had tomatoes when... More

Oh we did have a great visit to Kells. Great drinks (the Baileys coffee was divine) British soccer on the TV and tasty food. The staff were friendly and helpful around the football. It was a very jolly visit!

An Irish Pub with a live band playing on a Saturday night. What more do you want? The dance floor was a good size so although hopping it didn't become a mosh pit. Just a great vibe. Warm, authentic. Can't wait to get back.

We loved eating in a Legendary 100 yr. old establishment. They have to be doing a lot right to be around that long. We really enjoyed our meals, and the server was great. It really hit the spot on a chilly election night, and they even had live music in the other room, and Irish songs playing on our side.... More

Went for live music. It was one older gentleman and in the hour we were there he only played 2 upbeat songs, all the rest were really depressing. The waitress never came to our table despite the place being empty and she was only waiting on 3 tables when we showed up. The beer wasn't that great either. Could be... More
