Dined for lunch on a Sunday. I had the Persian salmon fillet & hubby ordered a parma. We enjoyed our meals. Service friendly.

Always enjoy the meals at Kelly’s but their prices are getting dearer and dearer. Since we were last there, the prices seem to have gone up and one of our party asked where the Seniors Menu had gone. The service is great, the meals are...really good, but the prices are not really what you’d expect from what is basically an outer-suburban hotel. That said, I’d pay nearly anything for those superb wedges and the magic trio of sliders! (We were there just before the start of the lockdown and those wonderful, cheerful staff are very much in our thoughts.)More

Firstly thanks for your kind words, especially in these trying times! I agree everything seems to be getting dearer and nothing seems to drop. Even with China rejecting our goods! The seniors menu. As we were having a considerable amount of non seniors requesting seniors...More

Food was delicious and serves were huge. Calamari cooked perfectly although sauce could use more chilli. Baterred Barra was tasty and kids enjoyed their meals too.

Pathetic, this pub has been charging above what would be considered fair for what is produced for quite some time. Obviously every business has been suffering as a result of Covid restrictions BUT yesterday $29.90 for a Parma was excessive but then to add $2.50...for gravy is pathetic! They won’t be seeing our money again!More

Hello, I am currently sitting in the pub, and have been for a couple hours! I fancied a snack...Mac N Cheese sounds good (I don’t want a big meal), however I am not allowed...because it’s a side...but I can have some chips or wedges as...they are not sides they are “Potatoes Options”. Honestly what is going on, I was prepared to pay nearly double for some Mac N Cheese but your chef refused because it’s a side! This is utter madness, for you as a business it uncommercial, but more importantly is such a lack of customer service. I think you need to review your outdated and non customer focused views....especially when you have a sign at the front of the pub complaining about dan Andrews and the lack of business!! I wanted to support a local pub, my first visit...and why exactly should I return when your rules have prevented me having a snack, and your own staff members also believe it’s madness!! Poor poor customer service! I would like to say however your staff are absolutely amazing and the 2 managers on tonight are great!More

Food was good and plentiful. Very much enjoyed the Chicken Benedict and my partner loved the homemade Lasagne. Garlic Bread was genuinely fabulous, but we both said we didn't need it The staff were very nice, Janette was particularly friendly and helpful. We will be...sure to go again when we are in the area.More

Ate here 2 days in a row for different celebrations. Saturday evening I had the Nasi Goreng. It was nice but lacked the Indonesian kick, 7/10. Sunday lunch I had the Vietnamese prawn and mango salad off the specials board. This was absolutely delicious, 10/10...for that one. Staff were smiling and happy. One thing that took me by surprise was that if you wanted chips and salad with your meal you had to pay $7 for the salad or you could have chips and veggies for free. All up great time at Kellys hotel.More

I was visiting from WA and catching up with some friends for lunch so we opted to meet here as they had eaten here before. We all ordered different meals and were pleasantly surprised by the quickness of service, considering it was Saturday and the...dining room was quite full. I had the Crispy Skin Salmon and salad and was really battling to eat it all - should have missed on the Garlic Bread entrée shared! The service was quick, staff very friendly and the food, as far as our table was concerned, was delicious. I would certainly return to eat there again, when over again from WA.More

Hi wycomgal: Thanks for the fantastic review and rating. It really is appreciated. Methinks with the signing of Tim Kelly to the Eagles we might be seeing quite a few Sand groupers travelling East next year! Thanks again and have a great Christmas!!

My husband and I do not live in the area. We stopped off at Kelly's hotel Cranbourne for lunch. As we had our dog with us we sat outside. We were then informed we could not sit outside with our dog so we left. We...have been to numerous cafes and sat outside with our dog with no issue. Thanks for making us feel unwelcome. We'll never come here again.More

There was a varied menu with gluten free and allergy options; seniors menu, which included a small desert. The food was excellent, as was the service. I have no hesitation in recommending this bistro.
