    This place has an abundance of character and a great overall ambiance. I have been in for beer and appetizers and always enjoy it.

    The bar stools are super low but the food and beer is good

    Tried the Talisker 10 year on the rocks. Not bad, but too much iodine on the tongue for my taste.

    Summertime means the back patios open. Big screens out for sports viewing and you can still enjoy the Irish tunes from inside.

    Irish stew Worth having.

    The waiters drop tar tar sauce on people's back.

    Awful service. The food is mediocre, and the staff doesn't seem to care about the customer. We went to watch the World Cup game and nobody knew how to then on the TV.

    Friendly service, great food, big fan of their Hard Cider!

    Be sure to try to throw a dollar at the ceiling. Look up as you enter; you'll see what I mean.

    Poor service and unexperienced staff. Group of 4 might have to eat their meals off of their lap if they get seated at a 2 top. Upstairs only has 3 beer choices. Watch out getting handed old menu.

    Irish nachos are the best!

    The service, the food, the atmosphere and the live music.. All amazing. We even went in on a Saturday night and still had impeccable service, I wish I had gotten her name to recommend her.

    Check out downstairs . . . Great little cigar bar. Decent selection of sticks. Not for those who don't like cigar smoke. Pretty smokey down here.

    Ask for the Hangover Shepherd's Pie. It enhances the Irish staple like nobody's business.

    Get the salmon fish & chips. Ridiculously delicious! & Make sure to request your fries crispy--unless you like soft fries.

    The Reuben is delicious and love the pickles!

    Finally a place in the states that has real Guinness, not the crap you see in sports bars.

    Kells new Red Ale is definitely worth a try, it's like a slightly creamy Smithwicks.

    Brad Donahoe · September 9, 2012

    It's an Irish pub done right: loud, abrasive, smelly and full of loud, abrasive, smelly people.

  • Doug C.

    First visit, came just to check out cigar lounge in basement.Good ventilation. Nice to inside during bad weather.

    Kells is an official Timbers pub which means they will play every televised Timbers match - with sound - all season long. View Timbers schedule here:
