Kells Irish Restaurant & Pub Reviews
Who would have thought an Irish restaurant would have such great fried chicken? For years I didn't try the food, just stuck with single malt irish whiskey and listened to the great music. Little did I know what I was missing. Fun place--check out the dollars on the ceiling! Try it on a weeknight if you don't want to fight the crowds.
The shepard's pie is excellent!
by Robin C.
The service, the food, the atmosphere and the live music.. All amazing. We even went in on a Saturday night and still had impeccable service, I wish I had gotten her name to recommend her.

Fish and chips! The chips are okay, but the Fish is fantastic.
Look up! ;)

Check out downstairs . . . Great little cigar bar. Decent selection of sticks. Not for those who don't like cigar smoke. Pretty smokey down here.

Ask for the Hangover Shepherd's Pie. It enhances the Irish staple like nobody's business.

Get the salmon fish & chips. Ridiculously delicious! & Make sure to request your fries crispy--unless you like soft fries.

The Reuben is delicious and love the pickles!

Chicken Buffalo sandwich & Porter beer FTW :D
Finally a place in the states that has real Guinness, not the crap you see in sports bars.

Kells new Red Ale is definitely worth a try, it's like a slightly creamy Smithwicks.

Michael Collins Whiskey Sour + Guinnes w/ Kerry

It's an Irish pub done right: loud, abrasive, smelly and full of loud, abrasive, smelly people.

Check out the super tall urinals! I am 6'1 and I got scared.
Always eat food at happy hour - otherwise it's kinda pricey.

Gets pretty crowded after 8 PM so try to get there earlier than that. Getting a table can take forever!
by Yael P.
Great food and great service! Horrible that they don't split checks for large parties.
by Adam P.
6 Nations Rugby Championship matches are shown here. Rugby and soccer fans wake up early to gather at this pub to watch matches. Pub opens at 7:00 a.m. and kitchen opens at 8:00 a.m.

Drifter Pale Ale is so good.
by Jordan Z.
If you can`t come to Ireland go to Kell`s and watch some Rugby or Football!
Irish coffee toffee is a great warm-up on a chilly night out.

Try the Creamed Mushrooms On Toast With Chives and spot it on Foodspotting!
Two things are a must here: the cheesecake. And the bltc. Also car bombs are fun.
