The pub's sandwich list is lengthy, including a veggie panini with portabella mushroom, roasted red pepper, pesto sauce, green peppers, basil, red onion and mozzarella cheese; buffalo chicken club with grilled chicken breast topped with buffalo sauce, ham, bacon, brown sugar and cheddar cheese and basil turkey panini with oven-roasted turkey, tomato, bacon, mozzarella cheese and basil mayonnaise, to name a few.
Tom Kelly's offers higher-priced options, as well, including ribs; filet medallions; scallops with crumbled bacon, butter sauce, homemade rice pilaf and veggies; Chilean salmon; chicken Rockefeller with spinach, bacon and asiago cheese; perch; and coconut shrimp.
The Reuben pizza sounds too interesting not to try, as well.
