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".

Wonderful Cocktails, Appetizers, and great Seafood dinner. Salted caramel cake recommendation from our server for dessert was spot on to split between us for a bite of sweet to end our meal. Another great dining experience!

Met some friends from St Louis and they said it was the best meal that they had since leaving Missouri! I made a great choice. Our waiter Miguel was excellent too!

We enjoyed our dinner, but were seated at a table between the door to the outside tables and bathrooms so there was lots of foot traffic. The table must have been old as our menus and plates literally stuck to the surface (it was sticky to touch). The server said there was a problem with the varnish. Kind of a bummer when celebrating an anniversary and two birthdays - something I noted when making the reservation.

Kelly's is a State College area institution, and the seafood and beef dishes are outstanding. Nice atmosphere, excellent service. Last week while we were there the electricity went out shortly after we were served, and after about 20 minutes without lights, they comp'ed our whole meal. Last night the lights stayed on, but still a wonderful meal.

Always great food and service @ Kelly’s. The Ahi tuna was outstanding. Interesting wrinkle with this reservation…they charge a non-refundable reservation fee of $25 per person.

We opted to sit on the patio and were seated promptly at a table outside, with a nearby heat lamp (turned on at our request).

Our waitress informed us that a number of dishes were unavailable, including the ones that a few of us had been eyeing. So, a number of us got our our second choice meals.

Cocktails priced to be the most disappointing part of the dinner experience. The cosmopolitan and mojito ordered by two of our party were not drinkable. Apparently, they did not have mint for the mojito and used a mint-lemon(?) syrup instead. While this was explained prior to ordering, the impact on the drink itself wasn’t obvious until the cocktail was actually being consumed. Not good! Oddly, the cosmo looked nothing like our collective experience with that cocktail, and it didn’t taste right either.

The halibut cheeks, served with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables were delicious. The portion was on the smaller size, especially notable when compared to the portion size of the salmon. Two in our party ordered the salmon and thought is was very good. One person ordered the pot with shrimp, clams and mussels; sausage was also included. He finished the entire meal and thought it was very good. Only one person. Ordered a steak. He also thought it was tasty and well-prepared.

Had to send steak back as it was rare and chewy and we had asked for medium doneness. Smoked salmon did not taste fresh and the ravioli was salty and greasy.

Halibut cheeks are a rare and delicious treat, that must be tried. Accompanying potatoes and vegetables prepared well. Suggest they make it known a house salad may be substituted for veggies...or offer a small house salad with dinners at no charge. Lemon sorbet was a lovely follow-up....but tiramisu, which companions had, got very good reviews.

Dinner was terrific and our waiter, Miguel, was overly helpful and attentive despite their being short-staffed. We would have preferred outdoor seating simply because the back room was crowded and noisy; but otherwise a great dining experience.

One suggestion. The website could be upgraded for ease of on-line reservations. Rather than the “Visit us” tab it would be much simpler to just have a tab for “Reservations.” Just a tip!

Felt rushed. Waitress brought entree while still eating soup and salad.
The seafood chowder tasted like any cream chowder...didn’t have seafood flavor.
The filet mignon was good but not juicy and fabulous.
However , the spinach salad and house salads were delicious as was the lemon cream cake.

Getting together with friends. Food is reliable. Salmon was a little dry, despite request for undercooking. Sides are very good. Wine list is very good, especially in light of PA constraints.
COVID protocols are in place, which I appreciate.
