WELCOME TO JIMMY KELLY’Sgr_ourstory_johnkelly
Housed in a glorious Southern Mansion in the heart of Music City, Jimmy Kelly’s continues to be a standard by which American steakhouses are measured. Founded in 1934 while the country was in the throes of the Great Depression and just one year removed from the repeal of prohibition, John Kelly made a promise to himself and his diners. Simply put, he would serve a great steak, a generous portion of whiskey and ensure the service was always attentive.
SOME THINGS NEVER CHANGE!
