If you're in Tweed or just driving by on highway 7 it's a short drive to Kelly's and well worth it. Had a burger plate with an ice cold brew on the patio! Excellent food.

I highly recommend the fish and chips or the chicken fajita wrap! You also can't go wrong with a side salad. Delicious food, worth the drive from Ottawa.

This place definitely has some character. When you walk in there are all sorts of interesting memorabilia on the walls. It isn't a very big place so I would advise at going just before the dinner rush to ensure that you get table. The food was good as most people have stated. It's your typical American menu and a few... More

The food was pretty good, and the service was friendly. It's a little stuffy door wise, kind of an old people joint. Which is fine in cottage country I suppose. Try to sit outside and it won't matter.

We got lucky to squeeze in to a packed restaurant before they started turning people away. The service was friendly but slow because it was so busy. The food was certainly worth the wait. The decor and atmosphere are definitely representative of why this place is so popular.

Although it had a predictable menu the surprise was several gluten free options. The BEST GF burger! However the wine options could use some expansion. NOT Ontario's finest.

Hubby and I stopped in during our road trip from Ottawa, based on other reviews. We were not discounted. We both had the special which was a club sandwich with fries. Made on really thick homemade bread, piled with real roasted turkey, thick sliced ham and lots of bacon....it was an A+ club sandwich. Fresh cut fries on the side,... More

Old school hospitality. Lovely, intimate spot for special lunches and dinners... or just treating yourself daily. Very friendly folks, with hearty, home-style food. You'll like it. My Mom, who's 83 and very old school European, and very picky about where she eats, really enjoyed it... I took her here for New Year's Eve dinner, and it was memorable. Thanks Kelly's!

Came to this restaurant based on Trip Advisor reviews. The restaurant is a little too dark for my taste, the lighting was inhibited by all wood walls and wood ceiling. Decor was nice with a collection of antiques. There is a deck which you can chose to sit on as well. Food was of higher end lunch prices. For instance,... More
