We came here for dinner as most of the restaurants in that area were closed by that time. We grabbed a table in the patio and ordered a local beer while trying to decide what to eat {(I tried two local beers branded as Bad...Tattoo (Ceveza Negra and Clara) and both tasted good}. The problem was not with the beer, it was with the container. When the beer arrived, I was stunned to find that the beer was served in a plastic tumbler. I asked the server about it and she said only plastic tumblers were allowed in the patio. And then she had another person sent to me who told me the same thing adding that the city didn’t permit plastic tumblers in the patio. To my utter dismay, I had to drink beer from a plastic tumbler – for the first time ever ! I wonder if I was provided with the facts, because the very next evening when we were dining in the patio of another restaurant just across the street, all the tumblers (for drinking water as well as beer) provided to us were made of glass, not plastic. The only positive experience was the food. We ordered Chicken Quesadillas and Butter Chicken Curry (served with a small bowl of rice and two flatbreads). Both tasted good and we enjoyed the food.More

The patio is always very popular so expect crowds and lots of noise. My partner had the chicken quesadilla which was okay but quite thin. I had the prime rib. I asked for medium rare but it came out almost raw. Since it was so...busy i did not send it back which I should have. A bit disappointing.More

I attend this restaurant because when Kelly O'Bryans was in Prince George (its since closed) I loved their pachos. I have tried this restaurant in Kelowna 3 times now, and I'm sorry to say I was disappointed again. I ordered the steak sandwich with pachos....The steak sandwich comes with cross fries (which are pacho fries with out cheese and chives) Essentially you are paying pacho charges for cheese and chives. (which are a full $4.99, regardless of fries being included) There was hardly any cheese on the pachos. As for the steak, I could tell it would be dry and flavourless the moment it was served. The steak looked overdone and dried out. Surprisingly, it was done right (medium well) But the steak still had no flavour, and was very dry. My spouse had fettuccini. She paid $14.99 for just noodles and sauce. They actually charged her $4.99 for mushrooms, and another $4.99 for chicken, turning this into a $25.00 plate of food. Expensive, but thats okay if it was good. She said the mushrooms had no flavour, and the chicken was dry, Overall she did not like her meal either. The server was pleasant and friendly, but didn't really check to see if we liked our food. The atmosphere. Music was quite loud...could only hear the bass. But we love the decor and brick look. I've given this restaurant three tries now. Unfortunately will not be returning. (and I am not one who likes to write negative reviews)More

We dropped in to Kelly O'Bryans for a quick drink and appetizers, The server was friendly, knowledgeable, and provided excellent service. My draft beer (hoppy IPA) was delicious. I was disappointed with my appetizer of dumplings. The dumplings were doughy and covered with a whitish...sauce that I have never seen before. That being said, I would go back but order something different from the menu.More

Came here on a recommendation. Not bad but nothing overly special. We started with the patchos. They were decent but not what was expected with everyone saying how good they were. They are slightly better than McCain fries with honey mustard sauce. Then I had...the Philly subwich. It wasn't bad, good amount of topping and bread was good. Was a complete disaster to eat as it is a mess and the meat was dying for some sort of seasoning. We aren't drinkers so I can't really speak to the bar side of it, food was decent but not great.More

Was going to meet an old friend for a bite to eat, and I was picking the place. It had been quite a while since I’ve visited this restaurant/pub, The service was as friendly as I remembered. Overall, good service, and pretty good food. Although,...it felt a little like ‘running the gauntlet’ walking into the place, with so many people asking for money. This has nothing to do with the restaurant, but you wonder if your vehicle is safe parked after dark.More

Prime rib so tender and juicy it literally melts in your mouth, cannot say enough good things about it and on top of that reasonably priced. Do not pass this up

We dined at Kelly O's end of January 2020. We both ordered Rib Eye Combo but requested no prawns. (allergic) Our meal was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. Only drawback was, we asked for no prawns and thought they may lower the bill to...compensate but they didn't. However, the food was good and the service was great too.More

Not happy I have to be careful of alcohol intake so I really wish server double checked with us the amount of alcohol in each drink and didn't pressure us so much. I'll go elsewhere as the value was not great even with a free...birthday meal for my partner.More

Took 20 minutes for anyone to even come and greet us in the pub room. We told 2 different people we were waiting and still got ignored. It took more time to then take our order. The draft Guinness was as expected but my cocktail...(blackcurrant mojito) was weak and flavourless. We also ordered the chicken lips which were okay and the Patchos which I had never tried before but kept hearing how amazing they were and they were very disappointing. The lattice fries were undercooked and bland and the small amount of cheese topping didn't add much. Had to add seasoning and slather in the dipping sauce to get any flavour. Can't see me going back anytime soon.More
