Things are different than the last review – The old reviews no longer apply here. I visit on tue., and wed. nights and Showbo is awsome!!! See you there soon.
Hip Hip Hooray for Kelly's Pub!! – Leslie was 86'd -- that is just to delicious for words - God I love Karma - Kelly's Pub still smells like a bag of a**holes.
YOU PEOPLE ARE CRAZY!!! BEST BAR IN TOWN! – You people are crazy! This is one of the best bars in town. You obviously cant handle your alcohol and have been thrown out before. The bartenders work their butts off! I have never waited on a drink at this bar despite the fact that the bartenders are working alone and with no security. There is a really great group of people at this bar and they are better off without you. You should go hang out in PB were you belong!
Poor Service is an understatement... – I have tried this bar a few different times and it never fails -- When you want a drink there's no one around. The bartenders are sooooo L-A-M-E. Beware. Leslie is flat out rude, and thinks she's high and mighty, oh I forgot, she's a comedian too. Beverly --- well you have to experience that for yourself....Someone needs to give her a full length mirror -- she's like 80 with her pierced belly button --- nasty. Jennifer is cool, but she has to be the most vain person on the planet -- and she's running on about 1/2 of a brain cell. Who does the hiring here? Anyway, they have good french fries and good tap beer that's about it. Most nights are dead,and the bartenders spend their time smoking, doing shots, or par-taking in some form of illegal behavior. The drinks are way over priced and weak as hell. Good luck getting a drink, as a matter of fact --good luck finding a bartender to order a drink from. Go down to the Old Town Saloon and be treated as a paying customer should be treated. And you might not be the only one sitting in the bar. I did...no more Kelly's Pub for me. Ugh.
prices high for service – I do not know who owns this pub, but he should not be so cheap and purcase some new tvs !!!!
also I waited for ever to get a drink because the bartender was outside smoking and b.s.ing
with her friends, and when i commented on that she was all defensive and then it took even longer to
get another drink . the crowd seemed ok but things will need to change before i return to this dive!!
the mens room reminded me of a new york subway urinal only no bumbs were sleeping under the toilet
best guinness in town!! – kellys is a very fun bar but avoid tues and weds if you want the correct drink you ordered. apparently the best bartender in town has proplems with that. sara very sweet and new but good at bartending. jennifer best butt in town and ref outfit on sunday football a big plus and maybe the only one i have ever seen clean. leslie can be rude but some people like that in a bartender. and she packs them in on monday nights! just watch your money on the bar she may think its a tip!
NO CHANGE. – IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE I'VE VENTURED BACK TO KELLY'S BUT NOTHING HAS CHANGED, EXCEPT OF COURSE THE FACT THAT LESLIE WAS 86'D PERMANENTLY. THE OWNER , HOWEVER, MISSED HER PARTNER IN CRIME, JENNIFER. THE NIGHT I WAS THERE SHE WAS STILL THROWING BACK THE SHOTS WITH HER INDIAN PAL AND SOME OTHER LOSERS. I CAN'T BELIEVE HE HASN'T CAUGHT ON TO HER YET, SHE'S SO OBVIOUS! TOO STUPID TO BE SUBTLE I SUPPOSE? WELL, IT'LL BE A LONG TIME BEFORE I GO BACK, SOME OF THE REGULARS ARE NICE BUT THAT DOESN'T MAKE UP FOR THE LACK OF COURTESY FROM THE HELP. OH, THE KITCHEN SEEMS TO BE DOING BETTER.
Kelly's Pub; Best Bartender in San Diego – Kelly's Pub in Old Town is a great neighborhood bar, if you are there when Chriscilla, the manager and bartender is there. She is friendly, gracious, and very attentive. She never gets flustered when " in the weeds," and is always smiling. She is the best bartender in San Diego or maybe in all of Southern Ca. Although there is one draw back to this establishment and that would be the price of the food. The food is good if you can afford $9.50 for a regular old cheese burger and fries. Would be okay if it were a New York steak, but it aint all that.
Leslie the bar tender is phyco – Don?t waste your time or money at this place. . LESLIE THE BARTENDER IS PHYCO NO GOOD FOR BUSINESS AND SHOULD BE FIRED!!!!!!!! Apparently going bipolar on the entire bar is the way to get everyone to leave. Once again, LESLIE THE BARTENDER IS PHYCO NO GOOD FOR BUSINESS AND SHOULD BE FIRED!!!!!!!!
