Make your annual trip to Kelly"s for corn beef on March 17! The burgers are pretty good other times of the year as well.

We visited with friends for an evening meal. Unpretentious bar with a nice menu and drinks. The food was served hot and nicely presented. Our server Valerie was first class and most personable. She made sure we had all we needed.
