Nice happy hour in the home of Pan Am

Kelly's occupies what was originally the office of Pan Am at its start. We stopped in for happy hour. Good prices and good food. The fish tacos were fresh and tasty. The fish dip was interesting and was enjoyable.

It has been 8 years since my last Kelly's review and I pleased to say they are our "go to" place for lunch now. Over the past few years we have grown tired of having to shout out our conversations over lunch. You know the places along Duval that need to play island music at an above average volume to... More

Excellent drink and appetizer specials. Nachos and fish tacos were delicious. The jerk wings were huge and saucy. The outdoor deck was fun and lively.

Had been here before and was not as happy this time. First time the on-line menu had more on it than the actual menu. Of course what I wanted was not on the actual menu. Drinks were good but of course they were out on the beer my husband wanted. Four choices of Sauvignon Blanc by the glass and good... More

This trip we decided to try different restaurants and came across Kelly's. What a great find. The food was fabulous. We sat in the garden area, so cozy and beautiful. Highly recommend.

Wow, what a great place in all respects. Wonderful environment, comfy bar stools, very friendly and attentive bartenders, awesome Margaritas, so much so I had to have three. Wings, nachos and fish tacos were wonderful and delivered quickly despite the crowd. So good, I am going again!

Excellent happy hour - really liked the chicken wings and key lime martinis. We found happy hour specials were a deal in key west versus going out for a full dinner. Kelly's active bar scene and recommended as a value place for happy hour . 1st would be boat house under commodore restaurant , 2 martins - get there early... More

Kelly's was one of the "go to" places in Key West for a good happy hour. Sadly that has now changed. The happy hour menu and drinks are very limited and staff not very friendly. Wings which were routinely very good were served cold inside and soggy. Sad to see this place change. Will not be back as there are... More

Read mixed reviews but decided to try Kelly's. We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Cashew encrusted Hogfish and Seafood Saute on pasta. Received excellent service from Travis. Prices were comparable to other places in Key West.

OK burger with a nice selection of beer and close to Mallory Square but far enough away from the madding crowds during the day. In the building where Pan Am was first founded.
