“Don't bother”
Reviewed 14 July 2012

Kelly's has become a smokey, run-down dump! The restaurant needs remodeling and the food is horrible. I would not recommend this place to anyone. If you want a good burger, 5 Guys is just around the corner.

“I'd you want to eat and sweat at the same time, this place is for you!”
Reviewed 27 June 2012

The food is typical bar food, not done well. Anything fried tastes the same, so they probably never change the oil. Our server, Lindsay , was fantastic though. It must have been 82 degrees in there, again, but she was polite as could be.

“Not what it use to be”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

We use to love coming here. But the food is not what it use to be and it seems like the care more about the bar the cooking the food. Sad because it use to be really nice.

“Choke on the Smoke”
Reviewed 9 November 2008

The hostess and wait staff were great. The appetizer came out quickly but was small and bland. I definitely would not recommend the crab soup. It was, hands down, the worst soup I've ever had and rather expensive too. It tasted like bad tuna. We enjoyed the atmosphere, but the smoke was so bad, we had to leave before we ordered dinner. We were separated by a wall and were near the door and still were choking on it.

great for after movies, need more wine selection, also more pool tables and less smoke areas. GREAT Burgers and the best white bean chili nachos!
