Steakhouse
As the name suggests, Kelly's Steak and Seafood in Boalsburg, Pennsylvania is known for beef and seafood. Perhaps the best example of this on the menu is a 28-day dry-aged Nebraska steak. You can also order a flat iron steak topped with a wild mushroom sauce and served with a side of roasted garlic mashed potatoes or a filet mignon. At Kelly's Steak and Seafood, there is also a yellowfin “ahi” tuna steak, oven-roasted garlic prawns and a wild Alaskan sockeye salmon.

If you want something a bit more casual, Kelly's Steak and Seafood has you covered. Choose from the bison burger, Thai chicken sandwich or grilled fish tacos.

Kelly's does not offer anything from our menu "To-Go".

Kelly's is one of the nicer restaurants in the area. We have never been disappointed with our meal their. Their house salad dressing (lime ginger vinegrette) is delicious and their 6 layer chocolate cake is amazing (not too sweet). Excellent place to get a well-made cocktail.

Several negative aspects of the dining experience include tables being very unclean and sticky, steak was not cooked properly (half of steak was overdone while the other half was undercooked), server didn't know drinks, menu or specials, sides were cold (potatoes and vegetables). For a steak house not able to serve a properly cooked steak is amazing - overall a very unpleasant and unappetizing experience.

I reserved online. Wanted a booth for our anniversary. Hostess gave us a booth in the bar. Not very romantic. Extremely disappointing.

Our first visit. Our table for two was in the back room and the top was sticky or tacky to the touch. Either the finish was deteriorating or the table was not clean. The crab artichoke appetizer was sent back because the crab was not fresh. Salads were good. Entree's were just ok as my wife ordered a medium well steak and it was served medium rare. I had the Columbia River Salmon which was good. However, my patatoes and vegetables were not warm enough. In addition, teenage busboys were preparing additional tables. They crawled on cushions next to our table and other tables and ran through the dining area -- ruined any semblance of atmosphere. Finally, the restaurant was not busy on this Sunday evening, but our waitress checked on us infrequently. Overall, a horrid experience. We will never return.

We had had a great dinner. Stake was cooked perfectly and tender. They had a chicken with rice and shallot soup that was outstanding! Service was excellent too. The only thing I will say is make sure you have a reservation they usually won’t seat you without one.

The server was excellent but the food was nothing to get excited about. My dish was barely warm when delivered and the salmon slightly over cooked.

Unless I have a customer who wants to dine here I will not return. There are many better places in the State College area.

Excellent food and service. Came in for the Copper River salmon, a real treat that is only available FRESH a few weeks a year. Flown in from Seattle.

Our server was completely disinterested and seemed to be rushed, though he had lots of time to visit with folks in a nearby booth. He called us “guys” though we were one male and one female! He hardly looked at us, made no pleasant conversation, and just rushed off. The food was good but a little overpriced, and the noise level was way too high. We were celebrating a special birthday and we could hardly talk to each other.
Erik needs to be remind to slow down and pay attention to his customers. Maybe we were just too old to be interesting!

The staff was very friendly. The parmesan asks to crusted halibut was outstanding, will definitely return for this. The food was all very good. The waiter could have been a little quicker getting our order, but I will definitely still come back for the food!!

Food was delicious, ordered calimari appetizer and the portion was way to small. Kelly’s Salad was delicious and excellent portion size. Main meal was Delmonico Steak ordered medium steak came out well done and dry but was delicious and very good portion size for 2. Biggest reason for 3 star was how small the calimari appetizer was.

We love Kelly’s. Good food. Good service. We choose the bar because we like the informal atmosphere but it is noisy. The rest of the restaurant is NOT noisy but has same food and service

Have been going to Kelly’s for many years. It used to be a good place for fresh fish. Not anymore. Last week the swordfish special was inexplicably cooked properly on one half and raw on the other half. I ate the good half but did not complain.

Then this week I ordered the tuna steak which I have had many times. It is supposed to be seared which means each side is cooked to about 1/8” and the rest of the inside is raw. My steak was not seared at all. It was mostly raw top to bottom with small areas maybe lightly browned. Very unappetizing and dangerously unhealthful. This time I did mention it to my server. The entree was removed from the bill which I do not care about. Instead it would have shown basic courtesy for the chef or manager to speak with me.

It always takes skill to prepare fresh fish well. Kelly’s has lost its touch. Stick with steak.

My daughter, myself and a couple of her friends enjoyed a delicious meal at Kelly's Steak and Seafood last week. The girls were all finishing up their finals as they completed a successful freshman year at Penn State. The food was good quality and yumy , the wait staff was helpful and pleasant. It was a great place for a celebration!

Ordered a Cowboy ribeye with blue cheese but ended up being blue cheese dressing. The steak was tender and tasty but smothered in the lousy dressing. Won't be back.

Excellent food and service. The food is a little pricey and the noise level was so loud I had to yell across the table in the bar area to talk and then repeat myself. The front area is a little quieter.

The couple I treated avoid Kelly's because, according to them, "it's pricey." And that it is. For us that evening, four people, the average was $50 per person - $60 per with tip. That's a lot. I've been many times and will continue because I've gotten used to the sticker shock. So yes, I would recommend Kelly's to a friend but I would warn them what to expect when the check comes.

Enjoyed another wonderful meal at Kelly's. The food is wonderful, with interesting Chef Specials changing each month, and the service is always friendly and super competent. The noise level in the bar area can be a little high, so if you're bothered by that, ask to be seated in the main restaurant.

We had everything from a kids meal to a salad, burger, chicken, and steak and everyone enjoyed their meal. We didn't feel crowded in our booth as we have at other establishments when we have 5 of us for dinner. Dan was very attentive to us, kept our glasses full and met any other requests we had. We would definitely recommend it to others and will be back in the future.

Host and waitress (Caylynn?) very friendly, professional. Entire wait staff attentive. Noted it was a birthday celebration and our favorite restaurants usually do a candle or something small - nothing from this establishment. Live close by and may visit again.

For some strange reason we are always surprised at how much we enjoy dining at Kelly's. The service is always good and the food is even better. We are definitely fans and will return more frequently. The menu selection provides something for everyone and beverages are varied and reasonable.

Being regulars at Kelly's, we always look forward to a wonderful evening because we know we will not be disappointed! On this last visit, the food was awesome (as usual)!! Excellent Caesar Salad (they need to bottle that dressing)! An out-of-this-world delicious Filet (Kelly's cut done rare)! Wonderful wine and cocktails! And don't get me started on the Kelly's coffee (fab-u-lous)! And let's not forget about our waitress, Kayla!! She is the best of the best - wonderful personality, always smiling, always helpful and accommodating - what more could a customer want!! Thank you for a fabulous evening!! =)
