We ate at Kelley's last night and I was blown away by the incredible scallops, service and atmosphere! Our table was not ready yet but the staff actually put two tables together to seat us sooner. They could not have been friendlier and were only topped by their chef's generosity and incredible food. Great experience!

Had Quiche Lorraine here for lunch which was so light and yummy! A side salad, delicious, came with it. The ice tea was fresh. The menu offers a lot of lunch items. Our waiter was great and the entire staff were very friendly. Would definitely recommend!

I vacillated between giving Kelley's an "Average" and a "Very Good," and I decided to go with Very Good because it really was quite good relative to the other meals I've had in Fernandina Beach. We had a lovely table at Kelley's, and my mahi mahi was cooked incredibly well with interesting flavors (my husband ordered the same thing and... More

Service here is outstanding, and the food is even better. You have got to try the shrimp po'boy. Simply the best.

This is the perfect unpretentious, little joint that everyone loves on vacation- great, and I mean great service (thanks Laura!) wonderful food, (she crab soup, fried green tomatoes, great salads, beer& wine) and friendly conversation with the locals who also love this spot! If you have to wait for a table, it's worth it!

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this garden restaurant. Everything was great, food, service and the lovely outdoors garden we ate in. We would definitely go back.

We had lunch at Kelley's and it was very pleasant. I had the Steak Wrap, which is described on the menu as "a greasy vendor style guilty pleasure" and it was. I would have preferred a little less onions, but fans of Vidalia onions will love this. They use a thinly sliced beef identical to that used in a Philly... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here. The setting was lovely both inside an out, and our dinners (pastas and fish) were delicious (though halibut a bit tough). A surprisingly good selection of food (our servers were a bit quirky but nice) with excellent desserts (try coming in just for them!!!).

Very nice courtyard atmosphere that we were not able to take advantage of due to coolness the day we were there for lunch. Nice seating inside with excellent waiter! My wife and I shared a bowl of french onion soup (delish) and reuben. By sharing we were able to try the banana pudding dessert with pecan sandie crust. Yum! A... More
