Used to be a great place and always a good time as a local here, unfortunately it now feels like you walk directly into a smoke factory, the staff are extremely rude as it's a bunch of girls who like to pick and choose favorites. Wouldn't recommend to anyone as I have a personal first hand experience with the attitude... More

We stopped for lunch during the week. The tavern is quaint, but a bit rundown and in need of some TLC. However, thefood was good.

We should have known better but we we're out with the grandchildren on St. Patrick's Day and thought we'd get lunch and Irish lunch. We asked for Reuben sandwiches because of the corn beef and crispy fries. As you can see the fries were not only over cooked they were hard. The corn beef had been sliced with the green... More

Kelly's has been around a long time and used to be known for great burgers. Stopped by this location a few weeks ago and quickly left as the no smoking seating smelled horrible so can't comment on the food quality. One of the places around that isn't totally non-smoking.

As noted in many of the reviews this place does have a smoking odor, but it wasn't too bad. The food was very good. My burger was big and juicy. The hand cut fries were so yummy. The was staff was friendly and attentive. Pretty much had the place to ourselves for our lunch visit.

We've been to this Kelly's on several occasions over the years, but this visit was particularly unpleasant. Even thought the bar area which allows smoking is sections off from the dining area, the stench of cigarette smoke is terrible! Being a nonsmoker, I don't care to smell cigarette smoke at all much less while I am eating! And God forbid... More

Some close friends and I were looking for a place to have a few drinks and happened upon Kelly's, so we stopped. As soon as we walked in the front door, cigarette smoke smacked us in the face. They allow smoking in the enclosed bar area located in the middle of the restaurant, which is fine, but you wouldn't know... More

My experience was brief as we went for lunch. We requested a booth,so we weren't exposed to the bar area at all. My food was good,generous portions,little pricey,but,not too bad. Pleasant waitress,no issues at all.
