Thai Calamari Fries
lightly fried tender strips of calamari coated with thai spices and served with a creamy wasabi dipping sauce
We always have a great meal there. The service is outstanding. My favorite place in town to eat.
Seafood chowder is the best. Booths are very roomy for four people. Not cramped. Food and service great.
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!
Our meals, drinks, and appetizers were excellent. Server was exceptional. Perfect evening.
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.
Great variety and quality of food, try something new every time
Always a home run at Kelly’s
Excellent Copper River salmon and actually like their vegetables, too. Always a pleasant dining experience.
Excellent front of the house staff. Food quality was great and correct temps.
Varied menu, excellent service, tasty food. A neighborhood gem.
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.
We arrived on time and got a table right away, which was a good start. Then the food was very good, and the service too.
Nice place, good selection of quality food, superb service.
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.
We love Kelly’s. Consistent food great people.
Kelly's provides a very good over-all dining experience. The service especially when there on June 9th was fabulous and the food was very good.
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!
Best restaurant in Centre County. Fabulous menu. Salads are great. Nice bar area more more informal gatherings.
This is my favorite restaurant in the State College area. Always a great meal in a sophisticated ambience. The cow on the roof may look tacky but the restaurant is not.
Good food… high price.
Food and service are exceptional! Great place to dine.
Our waitress was great and the food came out in a timely manner and was delicious. The outdoor dining space was also appreciated.
Good menu selection. Take the calamari strips off the menu. They’re an insult to anyone who likes real calamari.
Wonderful experience. Food was great.
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.
We celebrated a college graduation at Kelly’s and couldn’t have been more pleased with the food and the service!
Food is always good and Jordan is always the best waitress.
We enjoyed our graduation meal at Kelly’s! Service was great and menu never disappoints!! Great spot while in University Park area
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.
As always, your filets were excellent. Melt in your mouth delicious.
The Oven Baked Garlic Prawns are always exceptional.
Kelly's never disappoints! So good to be dining out again.
First time for us and it was very nice and food was great. A friend referred us.
Great food especially the Hallibut Cheeks and Scallops. Always enjoy a stop at Kelly’s when in State College.
Great food, Great service and fairly priced. Will definitely return
