I'm lucky enough to visit the Melbourne area very two years, and every time I'm there I make the time to have dinner and drinks at Kelly's. I'm never disappointed, the staff are friendly, helpful and make you feel very at home, the standard of the food is superb and I can't recommend it enough. They also host live music... More

We were welcomed by a very nice young lady and told to sit where we would like. We were then given water... More

We went here after family visited from the uk. The staff are nothing but helpful and friendly, i will give them full marks for service. I had the calamari which needed seasoning and was slightly overcooked. My fiancé had the steak which was delicious, i kept eating his food. I will be going back again.

We wanted a restaurant that we could get a reasonably priced meal at that wouldn't burn a hole in our wallets, Kelly's Bar and Restaurant is that place. Superb food and delightful staff, we felt very welcome coming here to dine.
