If your idea of a good meal is dipping your head into a vat of grease and drinking bad wine out of plastic cups, eat anywhere else on Kelly's Island. The Island House has beautiful food prepared by a real chef. We ate dinner and breakfast there twice. The service was friendly and wonderful as well. My husband and I... More

We had chicken and waffles and the back to bed hangover bowl. Awesone!!! Ohio maple syrup included.. bloody Mary's too. Patrons go inside to order then staff brings you your order. Quick service!

Had a dinner here one hot evening, Ate our meal indoors(bar area) to escape the sun and enjoy some air conditioning. Full service bar, but couldn't make a Long Island Iced Tea, due being out of one of the ingredients. Not surprising in a place that parties hard every day. Entrees were good and large portions. Parking is hard to... More

We only visited in the afternoon for their specials at Happy Hour; but, quite liked the lovely patio complete with fire place, lounge chairs, as well as tables and chairs (others were having late lunch early supper). The bar tender and wait staff were very friendly and the drink price for the special at $5 was a great way to... More

Visited here on a recommendation from our property owner @ our rental house. Seated promptly and water service was quick. Drink order and food order taken. Food took over an hour to receive however once @ our table the quality / flavor was exceptional. Glasses could have been kept more full. Island time in effect :). Value good.

Six friends met there for breakfast and everyone commented on how good the meal was. reasonable price and nice atmosphere. Outdoor seating. No decaf coffee. We'll definately go back on our next trip to the island.

Esp for a small island, food was very good. We'll be back. Our service was nice, very apologic (even though we did not complain.) However it was very easy to see the place was a complete cluster! People seated next to us, ordered pre dinner drinks, then asked to give up there seats. Yup, that was just the start. Another... More

We happened upon this place in search of somewhere to eat breakfast, and what a gem! They have a very small menu, focusing on locally-sourced seasonal ingredients. We had the "quiche of the day" (mine veggie, husband's meaty), and it was divine. Each came with a small tossed salad and fresh fruit with yogurt. The coffee was excellent too. Servers... More

We visit friends once a year and always come here for dinner. Pork chop dinner is very good and the bison burger. They also have there own homemade ice cream which is delicious! Good variety of brews to choose from and they have an indoor or outdoor bar.
