We got the drink fast but the the server never came back to take our food order. There were three to four bartenders and we repeatedly tried to get their attention but they just kept walking by. We will. It be back.

This was our second visit to Kelly's and while we were impressed with our first visit (a few years ago) this second trip was not as wonderful. We do enjoy the patio experience and the atmosphere is appropriate for a quiet, breezy night in January. But, the food was meh... the calamari was greasy and rubbery...it tasted like it had... More

Wow! The waitress wasn't epreal friendly to begin with. We were waited on and ordered appetizers during happy hour. She brought them and never came back. After a period of time went by I asked another waiter for our bill. He was pleasant. We paid and left. She came running out after us and yelling we didn't pay. I sure... More

Although I have eaten at Kelly's several times on my KW visits, this time there was a Regatta going on and the patio section was closed. We went upstairs to the covered outdoor area... coffee initially was cold, brought me another, then luke warm... let it go; had Caesar Salad w/ chicken.. chicken was tough and the service was slow...

We had lunch at Kelly's. The food was good, but the kitchen was SLOW. Only 10 people in the restaurant at the time! It took over 30 minutes to get our food.

Kelly's has a great atmosphere. For happy hour, you can either sit at the outdoor bar, at a high top table or along the rail to watch the passers by on Caroline Street. The key lime margaritas are fabulous as are Kelly's microbrews. Both are happy hour specials, as are the sangria and a couple others. The beer cheese dip... More

This is a couple of blocks off Duval. We were staying at the Truman Annex so we went for Happy Hour almost every night. We enjoyed sitting outside and people watching. Very good 1/2 priced appetizers and drinks.

Nice looking place on a corner, we thought the patio looked inviting. Probably should have found another patio. Drinks were fine, food was ok, waiter was inconsistent. Kind of like a magician, now you see him, now you don't. The experience wasn't horrible, just could have been much better.
