After having a long and annoying day we escaped into Kells to have a drink or six and maybe some food. Zach (with an H!) the bartender was a bit too handsome and so that led us to having MORE drinks as we sat at the bar. Decent beer, decent food... we'd go back but not make a special trip... More

Me and group coworkers recently went here for lunch and we were not disappointed. All of the food was enjoyed by all and the service was great. We started off with two appetizers, the meatballs and the sausage roll. We all agreed that the sausage roll was the best thing anyone ate for the entire meal and that is saying... More

We haven't been to Kells in years. The a Groupon came up so it was time to go. We had an enjoyable early Sunday dinner. We parked at an indoor parking lot a block away which Kells gives a $5 credit on your bill when you show your receipt. On a Sunday that basically meant free parking! I had the... More

We've enjoyed Kell''s Brewpub on NW 21st but this was our 1st to the downtown location. It was day 3 of St. Patrick's Festival & crazy busy. We went for a late lunch but they weren't serving food in the pub so ate in the adjacent dining room. I don't know if that restriction was for the festival or is... More

Absolutely disappointing. Walked for 25min and we're given a bar atmosphere with crazy loud club music. So sad/crazy... Was the darkest part of the weekend.
