Kells Brew Pub NW Ratings and Reviews
Met son and granddaughter there for a quick dinner. The meal arrived but one of the granddaughter's plates was missing. The waitress first said it should be out soon and then came back and said she had missed placing the order. It came quite a bit later than the rest of our meal. I ALWAYS think there should be some give back when that happens - a free dessert, $5 off the meal of whatever.
Great decor and ambiance ... good brews and great service. While food was traditional and well presented ... the portions were a little on the wee side for the price within the local market among pubs - especially the lamb stew which included only one recognizable cube of meat among the shallow bowl of tasty ingredients. To be clear, the flavors and presentations are great ...
The pub was kind enough to gift a dessert to the Birthday Girl ... good on 'um. All in all a good experience especially the staff.
Last time I was at Kell's I had the Sheperd's Pie and decided to try it again. I convinced my friend to try it as well and we both loved it! The beef and vegetable base is oh so tasty and the potatoes on top are light and delicious. Not to mention the Demi glaze that floats in a pocket on the top, which adds a delightful finish to each bite. Yum, yum. My wife and her friend had the Kell's burger which they also loved. The Whiskey Boneless Chicken Wings are tasty, but just not the same if you are looking for a great tasting wing! Overall great food and a good time at Kell's.
Great place for a weekend business meal. We were pleasantly surprised to find the weekend brunch menu -- offered options for each member of our group.
I tried a Bloody Mary - it needs a bit more work-- for quality of the tomato juice part and for presentation. The skillet presentation of eggs mushrooms, spinach and feta was great.
Tim was a delightful server, our food delicious (cheeseburger & mac & cheese & beer).
Something odd though - we heard a dog barking & that bothered me even though I did not see it.
We will definitely return for another great meal. Making a reservation online as driving there was terrific
Thanks for a fun evening. Wish you had a larger parking lot.
A small group of us get together for dinner monthly. Kells Brew Pub was perfect for casual dining. Our server, Dianna, was awesome. We were well cared for without feeling hovered over. She shared information on the different menu items and everything tasted wonderful. With out a doubt we will return to Kells soon.
We love coming to Kell's in NW. The atmosphere is awesome, and on a normal night, it isn't hard to get a table. The Kell's beers are great and they have rotating taps as well. I'm a fan of Kell's IPA and their Irish Red. The chicken curry fries entree is amazing if you like your food on the spicy side. It's the best thing on the menu, IMO. Highly recommend it. Service is always fantastic and the bartenders are really great, especially Nick.
Annually, my daughters and I hit the town for some early Christmas shopping, martinis and and nice dinner. Kells was the perfect spot. I had asked for a quiet table, and they gave us a typical Irish enclosed booth. This is really a beer and mashers spot, but their wines and entrees satisfied everyone's tastes. I would definitely return and recommend to others.
The servers were very nice and we were seated quickly. They have a great time and a few easy to find gluten free options. Be sure to ask if there is something you are interested in, and they will see what they can do to make it gluten free. The only icing on the cake that it needs is Irish music! Fantastic time!
Between the two of us we had shepherd's pie and wild salmon, and both were delicious and cooked just right. Wait staff were pleasant and prompt, and they kindly let the two of us linger to catch up with each other. We tipped extra for that and we'll come back again. Suggestions? Wait staff could offer hot water refills and cream to come with the tea. Thank you.
Kells BP NW has an outstanding selection of single malt scotch, their own line of beers is quite good too. The menu is a good mix of traditional Irish food and some more contemporary American items. The space itself is gorgeous, the wood work, stained glass, flooring, fireplace, etc. add to an excellent menu and whiskey selection. I look forward to going back.
Hello the food was great. Although being that this is an Irish Pub I was hoping for more unique and Irish style menu offerings for our breakfast. I went to Kell's to celebrate a friends birthday. She is Irish so this is why I took her to Kell's. The breakfast menu was small, and we could have had the same food at most any restaurant. The Irish Soda bread toast was the only different item.
The service was ok. Except the waitress just did her basic level job. We told her that we were their to celebrate a birthday. She did nothing extra for this. And didn't even wish my friend a Happy Birthday or acknowledge it in any way. Even when we were leaving.
She was friendly enough, but not really very happy and friendly.
Dining with 5 other women, when we want to have an all out gab-fest was so enjoyable in the enclosure of one of the snug booth. While they aren't soundproof, it does make it much easier to have a conversation that everyone, including those hard of hearing, can participate easier in. The food was very good, with some uniquely pub items, of a Celtic nature. And our waiter was really outstanding--never felt like he was rushing us, but kept lovely reasonable check on us, and even remembered who ordered what--something I often find lacking in so many food establishments. I wish I'd gotten his name as he really was outstanding in his customer service demeanor and attitude from the moment I stepped in the front door.
We went to Kell's for the first time Valentine's night at 7 PM, so it probably wasn't a typical night. Parking was challenging. There were a lot of people there, but we were seated quickly and received very good service. Our food was yummy though, I ordered the Valentine's Day salmon over quinoa special and it was great. Everything was fresh and tasty. My husband (who is from Ireland) ordered the Chicken Curry (over chips/fries). It was exactly what he expected, an upscale-more fresh version of the curry he loved to get back home at the local chip shop. Due to babysitter constraints, we had to leave before the live music started, but it definitely looked promising ;-). We would definitely go back.
I went to Kells for my birthday this weekend. Kells is a beautiful and typical Irish pub - the feel of the place is fairly authentic. The service was outstanding with all of the waiters stopping by periodically to check on us. I had fish and chips and they were freshly made, and tasty. My daughter had the kale salad and it was terrible. We had a great table in front of the fireplace with a good view of the live music. Shortly before the start of the music people started pouring in and made for great people watching! I would go again, but probably not for dinner.
