I don't understand how people can write a review of how good it is when they have been closed for 2 months or more. There is a great pizza place there now.

I'm sorry about the misleading TripAdvisor reviews. I have contacted TripAdvisor numerous times and asked them to take down our listing. For the record, the "Disappointed by reviews" submission has been flagged because they could not have eaten Spaghetti and Clams at Kelley's. That is not a dish I prepared when we were open. The "Great food and atmosphere" review... More

There was a lot of bees outside and so we had to move inside. Still loved the atmosphere inside though. The service wasn't the best. Our waiter wasn't very attentive to us. With that being said though, the food was fantastic. I had the crab cake sandwich and then we got the blueberry square to share. To die for!

We went to Kelley's because of the TA reviews. Very disappointed, I had the Spaghetti and Clams. No taste. Over cooked. My wife had a salad, horrible, limp, old lettuce, and watered down dressing. Avoid

Closed and has been replaced by an expensive pizza place. Limited indoor seating in dark area...plent of seating outdoors when the weather is pleasant.

When we visited the area a couple of years ago, we had the pleasure of a lunch in the courtyard of Kelley's Courtyard Cafe. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed a delicious lunch here. On our return trip to Fernandina Beach Kelley's was high on our list to visit. We were so disppointed to find Kelley's closed. Workers... More

It wasn't bad when it was open, but that is the past. It is either closed or about to be closed permanently as kelley's. Don't know what is coming next.

Echoing the previous review - Kelleys is permanently closed. A fellow working on the property told us that the owners retired from the restaurant biz. The new place is going to be a pizza, sandwich and salad joint. Farewell steak wrap. Farewell caramel pie. :(

Thank you so much for telling the world about Kelley's. It was our pleasure to serve you. I regret that we were not there for you when you returned. Thank you so much for not being upset (and giving us poor marks like the meanie before you). We have been very proud of our success on TripAdvisor, and have not... More

Stumbled across Kelley's on my last of a wonderful long weekend! This place topped it off. We wanted to good lunch before heading off the island and Kelley's hit the spot. The courtyard is sooooo relaxing and pleasant. The staff is understated, polite and friendly! The place is quaint and welcoming! Really enjoyed our experience. I had the summer salad... More
