Kelly's has a good selection of beer with a cool little menu that gives a graphical representation of styles (color, characteristics, alcohol content, etc.). I have had a couple of decent brews (I think the Scotch Ale was pretty good), and I have had some very mediocre beers that were not very good representations of the style. The atmosphere is unique (former location of a car dealership). In the Summer time it is a great place to hang out outside on the patio and look at passers by. In the cooler months it is downright cold inside due to it's cavernous design. The food is like a bad day at Bennigan's: Bar food with no character and less flavor.

Bottom line: Decent tap lineup, mediocre brewed beer, typical bar food, and a nice atmosphere.

1. Taps: They have a wall full of taps behind the bar area, which is nice. Less nice is they don't have a list so you have to constantly ask the bartender to clarify (unless you're some kind of tap savant, I guess). I didn't even know they had taps until I'd been 4-5 times, because they only give you a list of the beers they brew and it's a big place so you're not always in eyeshot of the bar.

2. Brewed beer: When you sit down they give you a list of their brewed beer, arranged by color from lightest to darkest. Of the 18 or so on the list, I've probably tried 10 and haven't been impressed with any of them. I keep thinking I'll find a style they do well, but I've been disappointed each time.

3. Food: Typical bar fare. Burgers, fries, wings, sandwiches, etc. I think they have a salad or two if you want something lighter.

4. Atmosphere: This is why I've been back so many times. They have a large outdoor area that fills up quickly in the summer, in addition to their large inside seating area. Lots of long tables to accommodate groups (most of the times I've been there have been for work going-aways) so you can cram in a lot of people. Service is generally good except when they're super busy.

Overall it's not bad but I generally only go there when someone at work is leaving.
