We had an early lunch here and had a good experience. Our waiter, Michael, was very attentive and had a great sense of humor. Curry chicken salad was good - not overseasoned - but the pasta salad side was over-dressed - but still good. 2 in my group had different soups and both said theirs were excellent. Coconut shrimp was... More

The service was only ok. The food was sub par. I'm a craft beer enthusiast so I was looking forward to their own brews, but only to find out they were out of all 3! We come to the island often, but will probably skip this on our next visits.

I have been coming to KW for over 10 yrs and Kelly's was always a "must visit ". I was there recent for first time in several years and it was terrible. I ordered a craft beer I have had probably dozens of times and waitress said they were out but recently put a new keg on. It was terribly... More

We usually go by each year we're in Key West. This year, the food was BAD! (except the gazpacho). Ceviche was mushy. Mango spinach salad had huge pieces of onion and mango so small you couldn't find it. The only redeeming quality is that the staff is really nice. Unless things change in the kitchen, we won't be back AND... More

This is my 4th time in Key West, but my 1st time at Kelly's off of Duval. Loved the outdoor dining area and lighting. Waiter was very nice and went above and beyond with his service to us. The short ribs were out of this world and my husband had red beans and rice with pork steak that wasn't too... More

This place was suggested for happy hour. Bar was slightly full when we arrived with two bartenders, one pleasant gentlemen and a nasty rude woman that could have cared less if we were there. We actually got this a lot when places were slower, the staff seemed to be annoyed that is was so dead. I got a key lime... More

Went for the micro brew and key lime pie and were disappointed with both. The beer was bland and the chocolate crust of the key lime pie tasted of freezer burn. We were very surprised that 2 of the signature items of the restaurant were lacking, and the more we sampled key lime pie during our week in Key West,... More

We were pleasantly surprised how good our food was here and the service. We arrived early for our ghost hunting tour and the hostess said we could sit at the bar or have a table. We then decided to order food. Our waitress also told us about spirit encounters at this restaurant. The atmosphere is old key west. Loved the... More
