Ned Kelly’s restaurant

Ned Kelly’s food photos

I finally have a favorite meal to order at Ned Kelly's.
The chicken wrap (I don't recall what they called it) was fantastic!
I was considering ordering another for take-out on another day.

The other plates are what my company had for dinner that evening.

Remember, you can click on a photo for a larger view.

Finally, I found a place that makes a no-alcohol pina colada with just the right amount of whipped cream. And it was at the right price too!

Our waiter was fantastic!

The meal was as we requested and he really did a great job of making it a truly excellent dining experience.

We were saddened to read this SJ-R article less than 2 weeks later.

The Australian-themed restaurant in Parkway Pointe shopping center closed Jan. 2 after 10 years. The corporate owner, Ned Kelly’s Inc., based in Fort Myers, Fla., also operated Ned Kelly’s restaurants in Bloomington, Peoria and Urbana, according to the company Web site.

Here is what another blogger wrote about the closing of Ned Kelly's restaurant.

and here is the link to their official website.

Our thanks to Ned Kelly's, for giving us a smoke-free place to dine before the clean air ordinance went into effect in Springfield.

We'll miss you!
