quality food at a great value.

a State College restaurant, strives to be the premier steak and seafood restaurant in the mid-price casual dining range of the Centre Region. Our main focus is serving quality food at a great value. Kelly’s Steak and Seafood philosophy can be stated simply; we want you to have a wonderful family-friendly dining experience. Every member of the staff at Kelly’s shares this sentiment – from the front door to the kitchen door. Our guests are our reason for existence; without them there would be no Kelly’s. We view each table as a chance to have a new “regular”, and do our utmost to assure that you leave happy. We look forward to serving you.

Under the creative direction of Executive Chef Sean Kelly and Chef Tien Kelly, our kitchen is well stocked with both fresh ingredients and talent. Our chefs have been trained at some of America’s top culinary schools bringing their enthusiasm for producing creative food to your table. Kelly’s Steak and Seafood offers a menu of food and beverages with a distinctive Pacific Northwest image. Our kitchen is committed to serving only the finest products, and receives daily shipments of fresh, beef, seafood and poultry. We serve only 28 day aged Midwest beef and our ahi tuna is flown in fresh from Hawaii. All of our beef and poultry and most of our seafood comes from the same company that supplies the White House!!

Our service staff is well educated, with regular training seminars in service and wine knowledge. You will be provided with professional service in a relaxed atmosphere. Each server has tasted every item on the menu and is able to answer any question you might have about Kelly’s Steak and Seafood.
