I met with 4 friends in the bar. Small, crowded. One bar maid. 2 of the 5 of us complained about our drinks. We had to hail the one server to order an appetizer after an hour. But once we connected with him he was...More

We're frequent customers and the downstairs bar area is very good. Excellent bar service & Mike is a pro. When eating in the bar area we typically stick with the bar fare, which is usually very good and pretty basic and simple as expected. When...More

I have been to Kelly's twice and was not impressed either time. Service was good but food was inconsistent. Fish was overcooked but salads and sides were far better than the entree. I would not go back.

We had a family get together at Kelley's where our family has gone for over 25 years. The drinks were limited to the usual plus any number of first rate draft beers. The soup and special of the day (a haddock sandwich with coleslaw) were...More

I've been going to Kelley's for over twenty years. Whether going there with a large party for dinner or just stopping in for a quick beer, I've never been disappointed. Food, service, and atmosphere are all superior. The Kelley family is as nice as they...More
