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".

This was my second time visiting the restaurant. Their dishes are amazing and we had great service the first time we went. This time, the waitress was extremely rude to our party of four, two couples. We needed time to look at the menu and get settled; the first time she came to the table after giving us menus and drinks, we ordered appetizers. The second time she stood at our table and did not leave until we ordered our entrees after rudely telling us that the kitchen closed soon, which we were unaware of have just got there less than 15 minutes ago. I felt like a child being scolded by my mother - and to me that is unacceptable at a nice restaurant. We also are not college students, we are local to the area!!! I have never had someone be rude in that manner, especially at such a nice place as Kelly's. I cannot imagine what my grandmother would have said if she got the service we had!! While we were eating dessert she gave us the check and after finishing, not in the exact words, she told us to leave. We were not even close to being the last ones there and only stayed an hour (you must make reservations at $25 per person cancelation fee and you get an hour and a half for dinner for parties of 4). Due to the rude service, I am not sure if our friends - being their first time there, would go back. Luckily it did not spoil the evening and once again, their food is great. It is a give and take, but I will probably not eat here again for a while - hopefully when we do return, we will get great service like the first time.

Our reservation included a request to be seated in lounge at 6 pm. We arrived 10 minutes early and were told that we could not be seated until 5:45 reservations were seated. We were required to wait in the lobby for 10 minutes until we could take our seat in the lounge. Made no sense.

The food was excellent but the service was slow. There was a great wine list but limited quantities available. There was only one bottle of each wine we chose so it was a little disruptive selecting wine when you are in the middle of a meeting.

Excellent food and service. My wife had the flatiron stake and she loved it. I did the Create Your Own Crab Pot - it was wonderful. Highly recommended and we will be back.

Wonderful Cocktails, Appetizers, and great Seafood dinner. Salted caramel cake recommendation from our server for dessert was spot on to split between us for a bite of sweet to end our meal. Another great dining experience!

We enjoyed our dinner, but were seated at a table between the door to the outside tables and bathrooms so there was lots of foot traffic. The table must have been old as our menus and plates literally stuck to the surface (it was sticky to touch). The server said there was a problem with the varnish. Kind of a bummer when celebrating an anniversary and two birthdays - something I noted when making the reservation.

Kelly's is a State College area institution, and the seafood and beef dishes are outstanding. Nice atmosphere, excellent service. Last week while we were there the electricity went out shortly after we were served, and after about 20 minutes without lights, they comp'ed our whole meal. Last night the lights stayed on, but still a wonderful meal.

We opted to sit on the patio and were seated promptly at a table outside, with a nearby heat lamp (turned on at our request).

Our waitress informed us that a number of dishes were unavailable, including the ones that a few of us had been eyeing. So, a number of us got our our second choice meals.

Cocktails priced to be the most disappointing part of the dinner experience. The cosmopolitan and mojito ordered by two of our party were not drinkable. Apparently, they did not have mint for the mojito and used a mint-lemon(?) syrup instead. While this was explained prior to ordering, the impact on the drink itself wasn’t obvious until the cocktail was actually being consumed. Not good! Oddly, the cosmo looked nothing like our collective experience with that cocktail, and it didn’t taste right either.

The halibut cheeks, served with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables were delicious. The portion was on the smaller size, especially notable when compared to the portion size of the salmon. Two in our party ordered the salmon and thought is was very good. One person ordered the pot with shrimp, clams and mussels; sausage was also included. He finished the entire meal and thought it was very good. Only one person. Ordered a steak. He also thought it was tasty and well-prepared.

Had to send steak back as it was rare and chewy and we had asked for medium doneness. Smoked salmon did not taste fresh and the ravioli was salty and greasy.

Halibut cheeks are a rare and delicious treat, that must be tried. Accompanying potatoes and vegetables prepared well. Suggest they make it known a house salad may be substituted for veggies...or offer a small house salad with dinners at no charge. Lemon sorbet was a lovely follow-up....but tiramisu, which companions had, got very good reviews.
