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

Went to Kelly's for dessert. Place was pretty empty as it was about 1/2 hour until closing. We ordered the chocolate brownie with side of ice cream. Have to say, it was delicious. Unfortunately, not so with the key lime pie. The worst we have tasted...pudding-like consistency, without any lime flavor. When the time came to pay the bill, my... More

We stopped here for dinner while looking for a place not on Duval. The ambience was quite nice and the Pan Am displays were interesting. The food was good but quite overpriced. The ceviche was excellent. The kids' burger okay (a mediocre bun). The mahi was very good and the scallops were average. The chicken on the caesar salad was... More

If you're ever in Key West, be sure to visit Kelly's at the corner of Whitehead and Caroline Streets (one block off Duval St.). Between 4 and 7 in the afternoon, they have - without a doubt - the BEST happy hour EVER. They sell these killer Margaritas - NOT frozen, each one made from scratch - at the bar.... More

What I love about Key West is everything is a short stroll away. We had a large party of 12 so I did not mind the extra wait. I had a delicious Mango gazpacho. My husband had a whole fried yellow tailed snapper. The food was lovely and fresh. Too bad we weren't in Key West long enough to go... More

Nice venue with open air seating in a garden type atmosphere. Food was excellent. I had the scallops (recommend) and the wife had shrimp with pasta. We topped off with an ice cream sandwich. I would suggest sharing it. 😉

Went to Kelly's hoping to partake in their happy hour and then dinner. We sat outside first, only to be directed to the bar in order to get the happy hour pricing. Sat at the bar with family, and was planning on ordering a series of appetizers. Started with the wings, and the quesadillas. The wings were excellent, and came... More

Being from Buffalo, it's hard to get excited about wings, but Kelly's version was really good. Made a happy hour stop there. Place was a bit dead so it took away from the ambience. Beer was OK, three options that they brew, but not great.
