Me, my wife and 2 other couple's where out on halloween night. I was the Designated Driver and we were making a few stops. We all met up at my house on the beach, they all had 1-2 beers a piece before we decided on where we wanted to go out. I loaded everyone up into my car and we headed over to kelly's. We arrived, and there were two gentlemen in the front who greeted us and checked everyon'es id and collected our cover charge. As we proceded further into kelly's, a very rude bouncer walked up to one of the other couples husbands and said he was staggering and he didn't wnat that man drinking. My friend replied "I haven't had much to drink, but i don't want any touble either" The bouncer interupted him and told him not to be a "Smart Mouthed B****, and to get the hell out of his bar." Well after hearing they we all turned around and headed out, at this point the Bouncer decided to make snide comments towards one of the women who was with us in a very demeaning manner. Who the hell is this "Collins" guy, i think i heard his name was, and who do i complain to about him?

and he "runs" Kelly's door like he owns the place--he has worked there for many years.(my spelling might be wrong).

I certainly hope you got your cover charge back if you left right away!

Call and demand to speak to Mike Kelly directly.

He has worked as a bouncer around the area since the 70's and yes he is an jerk. I had several disagreements with him at the Atlantis a while back. He was charged with raping a girl right in the parking lot of Kelly's a few years ago I'm not sure what ever came of the charges. Complaining will do you no good, Kelly knows what goes on there and just lets it go. Obviously he is ok with it.
I think his day job

You know, when your only real 'night life' around here is monopolized by that shit-splat of a watering hole I guess you just have to contend with assholes - employees & customers alike. I've personally never had a bad time at Kelly's. In fact, I've dragged home quite a few easy scores - mostly local 'ladies'- from there. The place has its merits! However, charm, class & atmosphere aren't among them. You pay your money & place your bets.
What a dump...

He is hideous. Lots of people won't go to Kellys because of Collis. He rips off people at the door, too. Be sure to make sure your change is right--he short-changed a friend. And there's that rape charge. The girl was probably telling the truth...why would she lie? It's awful that he has a good job with the town and at Kellys. Yuck!

Collis is a pure scumbag. I Have been going to Kellys occasionally since 1997. He has been rude, ripped people off, been way out of line on many occasions.( and I don't go that often. 1-2 times a year) Aparently, Mike Kelly doesn't give a shit, so he lets all this happen. I too heard about the rape, from a local police officer I was friendly with. He said, whatever you do, don't go out to you car alone. That should have been all over the papers, and at the very least he should have been fired instantly. I am amazed that he still has a job. Anybody know his real name? First and last? I would like to know what came of those charges. I am sure Mike Kelly hired him the best lawyer so as to not have bad press on his business. Sickening...

First of all, you need to spell "restaurant" correctly. Don't you have anything else to do except talk trash about other people? Way too much time on your hands.

Collis won't be remembered for all the crap you all wrote here. It's obvious you were drunk and obvious you don't know anything about him. Collis died yesterday. So all you haters can go to Kelly's and see if you like it better now that Collis isn't at the door. He's in a better place now. Stop judging others and maybe you'll see Collis at the entrance at another place.

Is that the big fat black bouncer always wearing sunglasses? Or the gay looking black bouncer with grease in his hair?

Probably a heart attack. He was at work with town-Manteo.

Ah dang...that was one nice guy..he may have been an ass but he was good at his job...I know for sure he works for Manteo public works, trained a lot of bouncers all over, loved his chopper, and I also have asked him to take his sun glasses off b/c I've never never ever seen his eyes my whole life while he was around. :) Boy am I going to miss him.

Collis was a good man, he loved his family and he tried to live a good life. RIP in Collis and thank your for everything you did for me and mine.

Yes, Collis was a good guy. I'll miss seeing him at Kelly's and around Manteo. Always saw him in his town truck, always waived, always had a smile. For those of you who didn't like his demeanor - too bad - because you really didn't know the guy. Kelly's can be a "crazy" place sometimes and people do sometimes get out of line. His job was to make sure people did not get out of line. Sooooo, don't come here on vacation and judge people you know nothing about!!!!
