Eggs, omelettes and pancakes all cooked to perfection.. Nothing fancy but reliably excellent diner-style food and service.. The coffee is really amazing.. Our family can get in and out for breakfast in 15 minutes when we need to! they also make great shaped pancakes for kids--elephants, whales, turkeys... you name it!

I have gone to Kelly's a couple of times. The food is good. The service is good. The menu is limited. Don't have much to offer other than simple breakfast menu of eggs, pancakes, French toast, and I think some cereal. Lunch is pretty much the same. Sandwich's and things simple. Lunch menu does offer some specials for the day,... More

Kelly's is consistent and clean. The staff is efficient and attentive. Prices are reasonable. I generally judge a breakfast place on the hashbrowns and these are good here-- clean and crispy and nothing in them that you wonder what it is. My favorite is the eggs; they're always "clean". Kelly's spoils me for other breakfast places; no one else has... More

Had blueberry pancake that was highly recommended. Was well made a tasty with syrup. It is well know place in Amherst for quality food. The place is easy to miss and is close to Cumberland Farms gas station on Route 9. Highly recommended!

Ate here recently with my parents and my son. We were all happy. Not the quickest service, but given that every table in the place was full, it wasn't too bad. Everything we ordered was cooked just right. Our server freely admitted in advance that their corned beef hash was out of a can, but with that in mind, it... More

I have no idea why some people like this place. I decided to have breakfast there because it has been recommended by a few people. The food is so-so, The service is crude and rude. I got the feeling that you don't get treated well unless you are a steady old customer... We literally felt unwanted. Prices are high and... More

We were visiting from Texas and we told our friends we really wanted a "hole in the wall" kind of breakfast, home cooked and fresh. They took us to Kelly's and we knew right away when we walked in that this is what we wanted. As we were seated and ordered it seemed to be a revolving door of people... More

Kelly's Restaurant is unquestionably the best in town for speed of service, quality of the food and consistently good cooking. Add to this the many people who one meets here and the interesting conversations you can have day after day. You don't need to read the local newspaper when you're in Kelly's. You find out all the news over breakfast... More

What my father used tocall a "greasy spoon". It isnt glamorous but you can expect your eggs cooked perfectly and food quick and solid. Service is variable-- some are outright rude but most are attentive For the price its good food served fast.

Great food, I usually eat breakfast there and but the lunch fare is good too. Especially the cheese burgers! Service is always quick and courteous. The guys cooking are always quick to talk with you and make you feel at home as well. Both my family and I plan on returning as often as we can!
