I liked the back deck and view on a nice summer day. The other guests all seemed relaxed. The ducks in the canal were so cute. I did not enjoy my meal, the taco salad. The shell was delicious, but the greens and the meat...More

I had the pleasure to take my friend to breakfast at Kelly's the other day. Great breakfast as usual, the owner Albert Kelly came out to our table and served us personally. Great food and a great price. We will definitely be back.

Nice setting, excellent selection of omelets and brunch food, quick and friendly service. Just what I needed after a long drive into Ithaca on roads with NO food!

In town for a day to visit beautiful Sapsucker Woods we picked this place on a whim. Big mistake! The one and only restroom was right by our table and the few patrons who were there all used it while we ate. Neither the place,...More
