History of Tally-Ho
Restauranteur Bob Kelley
Present owner Bob Kelley purchased the restaurant in 1980 and opened it to the public. An Ohio native, Kelley grew up near Paris, France where his parents enrolled in culinary courses during their spare time. Their cooking skills paid off as all four children acquired them too, and Kelley became a connossieur of French wines.
