This downtown stalwart has been around since the Depot really was a depot. Rack up a game of pool or hoist a cold one. If pool is not your game, then try your hand at darts or pinball. If you can't stand smoke, then leave before the regular pool hustlers show up. By early evening this place becomes the epitome of the smoke-filled pool hall. Hamburgers, fries, chicken sandwiches, and daily specials such as chicken fettuccine grace the menu, all as good as home-made. Food is served until 9pm. Basic domestic beers are available in cans or on tap. It's a great bar to escape Minneapolis' burgeoning hipster scene; Kelley's remains as true and unpretentious as it ever did.
