Kelly’s Steak and Seafood Serves Up Some of Happy Valley’s Best Beef and Freshest Fish

By Jeff Cavanaugh

Kelly’s Steak and Seafood has built a reputation as the premier steak and seafood restaurant in Centre County. And while in most cities premier is synonymous with pricy, Kelly’s serves up the best steaks and seafood available at a great value for family dinners, special occasions and everything in between.

Kelly’s Steak and Seafood is not hard to miss – thanks to the historic twelve-foot steer on the roof. It is also a can’t-miss dining experience for locals and visitors alike. Executive Chef Sean Kelly and Chef Tien Kelly are meticulous at their craft and ensure that Kelly’s uses only the freshest and best quality ingredients for each of their mouthwatering dishes.
Kelly’s offers a wide selection of delicious 28-day aged Nebraska steaks, and all steaks are topped with famous Kelly’s steakhouse butter. Each of Kelly’s steaks is cooked to perfection, but the 20 oz. bone-in Delmonico topped with a bleu cheese Portobello cap and a tomato-pepper relish is to-die-for.

While many restaurants struggle with an identity crisis when combining fine steaks and fresh seafood, for fear of compromising the quality of one or the other, Kelly’s has mastered the pairing of land and sea. It is their selection of wild-caught Alaskan sockeye salmon that is the real gem on the menu. Whether you order it grilled with lemon, vermouth and garlic; coated in toasted black and white sesame seeds and oven baked; or stuffed with Blue crab, macadamia nuts, spinach, mushrooms and cheese – you will come back for more.

They also have one of the best happy hours in town from 6 to 8 p.m. every day of the week. And once the weather warms up, Kelly’s has great outdoor seating on their deck – which is heated, covered and curtained to make sure a passing summer shower doesn’t spoil your dinner.
Kelly’s can also accommodate private parties, weddings or reunions of up to 50 people in one of their two private dining rooms. The venue can host parties of up to 75 people on the all-weather covered deck and patio.
