We came here for a drink after dinner at the Pink Door. The drink selection was a little limited but good and the service was prompt and attentive. The seating was comfortable and the atmosphere was enjoyable.

Being one that looks for paranormal activity, I heard that Kell's was known to have activity so decided to check this place out. Our bartender, Rory Kell, explained that the current bar was a temporary one and that they were renovating the original restaurant which...More

Nice atmosphere off the main drag. Good draft beer selection. I recommend the Kells stout. I had the corned beef sandwich, which was very good, but not a lot of meat. My wife had a salad and the others in our party got the dungeness...More

Don't even stop here. Service was slow. Food was horrible. I took my cousins from Europe there and it left a bad taste for Seattle. Non recommend.

Traditional Irish flavor and pub atmosphere. Wonderful selection of single malt scotch. Owner greeted me and was very friendly, provided recommendation for house specialty. Oh and did I mention the extensive menu of single malt scotch?

If you go to their website you will see that there isn't a children's menu. When we were there , we did not notice any children in the restaurant.

Kells Irish Restaurant & Bar is one of Seattle's favorite hideaways. Situated in Post Alley above the historic Pike Place Market, Kells is a fine way to round up a day's sightseeing or browsing at the market. The pub is always alive with folks cooling off after a day's work. The restaurant will be sure to remind you of the Old Country with its warm, cozy atmosphere and traditional surroundings. There's also a patio outside that's a great place to feel the breeze from the Sound and the buzz of the marketplace. We also have a grand celebration every St. Patrick's Day. Kells proudly serves Seattle's largest Single Malt Scotch collection.
