Was taking a Saturday drive, with no particular destination in mind, and around suppertime found us near Tweed, Ontario. I remembered a fabulous restaurant I used to frequent 30 odd years ago when travelling from Toronto to Ottawa on business. Much to my delight, it was still in business; and even better, the food was/is still amazing. Everything was delicious;... More

We stopped in for especially for their desserts. Last time there we had the lunch specials, which were very good, but left no room for dessert. This time we had their soup of the day and dessert. The Service was quick and cordial. The soup was hot and good. Our desserts were great. We are making this a regular stop.

Kelly's has been a favourite stop over the years whenever I'm in Tweed around lunch time. This stop was a break in a day long business meeting, so we dashed out for some dinner. The food is always good at Kelly's, and its a nice cosy restaurant in a lovely setting on Hwy 37. I selected a pan fried filet... More

If you're in Tweed or just driving by on highway 7 it's a short drive to Kelly's and well worth it. Had a burger plate with an ice cold brew on the patio! Excellent food.

I highly recommend the fish and chips or the chicken fajita wrap! You also can't go wrong with a side salad. Delicious food, worth the drive from Ottawa.

This place definitely has some character. When you walk in there are all sorts of interesting memorabilia on the walls. It isn't a very big place so I would advise at going just before the dinner rush to ensure that you get table. The food was good as most people have stated. It's your typical American menu and a few... More

The food was pretty good, and the service was friendly. It's a little stuffy door wise, kind of an old people joint. Which is fine in cottage country I suppose. Try to sit outside and it won't matter.

We got lucky to squeeze in to a packed restaurant before they started turning people away. The service was friendly but slow because it was so busy. The food was certainly worth the wait. The decor and atmosphere are definitely representative of why this place is so popular.

Although it had a predictable menu the surprise was several gluten free options. The BEST GF burger! However the wine options could use some expansion. NOT Ontario's finest.
