From the outside to the menu Ireland is the theme. Parking right across the street, casual atmosphere for both adult and children. Seating inside and out. Food is fantastic and plenty of it.

I've stopped in plenty of times with co-workers and by myself. Could be concidered both a Super Casual place or a place you would like to dress up a bit. BOTH are welcome! A pretty good menu.

Went to Kelleher's with friends. I was impressed with the beer selection at Kelleher's. A lot of different beers and spirit selection. The food menu is good also.

I stopped in with my wife after visiting the Caterpillar Visitor center and the Riverfront museum. It is a short walk from both along Water street. The bar and menu are Irish influenced and there is a varied selection of menu choices. I like the age and décor of the building and it feels like it is home to regulars... More

I tried to go here for dinner one night while staying at the Pere Marquette hotel. I sat at the bar and 5 minutes later not one of the 3 bartenders who were working even acknowledged my presence. I walked out and took my business elsewhere.

Overall a very nice place to eat with good food and cozy atmosphere. Though I don't drink beer, the guys I was with do, and they say Kelleher's has a wide variety.

A friend and I went to a show at the Civic Center last Sunday, October 30th. We had looked over all the possibilities for supper. We were looking forward to an experience at Kelleher's....unfortunately they are closed on Sunday evenings!

My good friend and I wanted to enjoy a drink outside after the Peoria half marathon expo. We went to Kelleher's to enjoy their patio and the beautiful weather. They had Sam Adams Nitro Coffee Ale on special! It was $6 and we got to keep the glass!! Also if we go back, we get $4 refills for the month... More
