I'm glad I chose this based on other TripAdvisor reviews. The waiter was helpful and attentive. I got the shrimp po' boy. It was loaded with fresh and properly prepared shrimp. I got there early for lunch so I had no problem getting a seat but know that inside has about 6 tables and outside seating is about the same... More

Kelly's is located in a beautiful courtyard reminiscent of Savannah or New Orleans with wonderful food and attentive service. The Mahi Mahi Mahi sandwich on Kaiser roll was almost a whole half fish fillet with remoulade served with tossed greens. The fish was very fresh, grilled and delicious. My husband's shrimp po'boy was lightly battered and fried, tender and piled... More

Great casual spot for lunch. Really enjoyed my BLT. It was served with garlic pickles on the side. I liked them so much I had to buy a jar.

We didn't sit in the courtyard because of the heat. Inside was nothing special, but it did have air. Hubby had a crab cake sandwich with a fried green tomato and said it was pretty good. I had the brie and cranberry salad with fried chicken - should have been awesome. The only thing with any flavor was the brie,... More

Atmosphere was relaxing, but the food was just so so. Sent the crab bisque back because it was tasteless with only a little bit of crab in the bottom of the bowl. The waitstaff was more that accommodating however and replaced the soup with a delicious tomato bisque with cheesy croutons. YUM! They also gave us our dessert on the... More

Visited here on a day trip to the island and this place comes highly recommended. From the time we arrived and left, very impressed with the friendly staff. Was greatly impressed to see the staff offer a coin to a child to make a wish in the fountain. Food portions were good and prices were typical of a vacation destination.
