Steakhouse
As the name suggests, Kelly's Steak and Seafood in Boalsburg, Pennsylvania is known for beef and seafood. Perhaps the best example of this on the menu is a 28-day dry-aged Nebraska steak. You can also order a flat iron steak topped with a wild mushroom sauce and served with a side of roasted garlic mashed potatoes or a filet mignon. At Kelly's Steak and Seafood, there is also a yellowfin “ahi” tuna steak, oven-roasted garlic prawns and a wild Alaskan sockeye salmon.

If you want something a bit more casual, Kelly's Steak and Seafood has you covered. Choose from the bison burger, Thai chicken sandwich or grilled fish tacos.

Kelly's does not offer anything from our menu "To-Go".

The veggies and potatoes were good but my rib eye was stringy and tough. For $40, I expect a damn good steak. This wasn’t it, very disappointed.

Kelly's had done a nice job making adjustments to the seating to accomodate what seems like a lot of people at once. It almost felt like "normal times.
The service and the food wer both excellent.
I was a bit disappointed that they didn't have the specials that were listed on OpenTable.

After hearing so much about this restaurant through Penn State's parents social media my husband and I decided finally to try it since my daughter was dancing for THON weekend. Wow were we ever disappointed. We were seated promptly which was great and the service was fine but very robotic and not friendly at all, like the quicker she got us out of there the better. Since they are known for their steaks of course that's what we had planned to order so we did. We ordered the porterhouse and it was fair. We have had so much better. The salad was better in our opinion. Overall, it was ok. An in and out experience. We would not return. Completely overrated in our opinion. So happy we tried it because we were going to consider it for graduation. We will go elsewhere.

This was our first time to try the restaurant. Our food was good, not great. One of my hot sides was cold, not warm, but cold. The waiter was ok, nothing special. The ambiance was ok, nothing special. We ordered an appetizer soup, salad and steaks and we were hoping for a nice evening out, but everything came out so fast that we got our check after 45 minutes. We actually went somewhere else for dessert and coffee/Baileys to try to improve our "date night", which we don't get often enough.

The food was good, nothing was terrible - nothing made us want to go back.

Service was good, friendly staff. Chopped salad great. Filet mignon tips tough and chewy. Disappointing for filet mignon and $$. Will try a different restaurant next time we visit our student at Penn State.

Kelly's is still our go-to place and our favorite restaurant in State College. There are others we enjoy but you can't beat the food, wine, service, and when it's nice weather sitting outside is our favorite, even before COVID!

We always have a great meal at Kelley's and the service is outstanding. We celebrated 2 birthdays within our family and we all had different specials of the week--which were amazing. Their normal offerings are delicious too but the specials were excellent. Their house salad is the best and we can never go there without starting our meal out with that. Absolutely my favorite restaurant in the area!

We had an excellent meal. The spinach salad is the best I've ever eaten and nearly always my choice for a salad. The steak was tender and cooked as requested. We will be dining there again.

Had the teriyaki tips and calamari fries as the appetizer. The calamari was ok but the tips were amazing. My son loved the fettuccine alfredo (off the kids menu) which I tried and agree was fantastic. My daughter had the salmon off the kids menu and it was bit over cooked and fishy. My husband had the bone in porterhouse which was very good and I enjoyed the linguine clam special. Would definitely go back if in the area.

Outdoor dining experience with shelter and heaters was great. Have dined here several times during the Covid-19 period and found the protocols they are following make the experience as good as it can be under current circumstances.
