Kelly's American Roadside Diner at the Mountain Top in Letterkenny has added yet another award to its already impressive list of accolades.
The Letterkenny eaterie won the “Best Family Restaurant 2016” award at an event hosted in Jackson’s Hotel, Ballybofey on Friday night.
Restaurant Manager, Leah McNulty, said that she and her team were extremely proud and thankful to be win the award.
She said: “We are extremely proud and most thankful to be awarded the prestigious "Best Family Restaurant 2016" at the ‘Families First Annual Awards Ceremony."
The diner's valued customers had nominated the restaurant for the award in early Spring this year. This was followed by a judging process carried out by mystery auditors and online votes collectively and they ranked Kelly's American Diner the 'Best Family Restaurant in the North and West of Ireland'.
The award which was presented on Friday night is a celebration of the exceptional service and unbeatable value the restaurant demonstrates and is recognised throughout Northern Ireland and right along the west coast to Galway, Ms. Mc Nulty said.
The owner of the American Diner, Mairtin Kelly said: "Kelly's American Diner caters for every budget and boasts an extensive menu, including our famous Steak Saturday's and ever-popular early bird breakfast. The massive menu of milkshakes and slushies offering over twenty four different flavours, the introduction of the 'Heavenly Zone' menu earlier this year along with complimentary dvd players, unlimited juice and ice cream with all kids meal deals sets the restaurant apart as an exceptional experience for the whole family."
In addition to the "Best Family Restaurant 2016" award, the team at Kelly's is this week being presented with their "Customer Service Excellence" award.
This award is testament to the teams dedication to excellence where they ensure customer service and delicious food is placed at the forefront of their proposition, Ms. McNulty said.
After picking up the Families First "Best Family Restaurant 2016" Award at Jackson's Hotel, Manager Leah McNulty said: "We are extremely excited and delighted by this honour, to be recognised as the best is so humbling. I would like to congratulate the Kelly's American Diner team for this award and also take this opportunity to say a heartfelt thank you to all our loyal customers for the nominations and votes. We look forward to continue to provide the best experience and fresh wholesome food at affordable prices to you all into 2017."
