Happy Hour is pretty darn good here and highly recommended. Enticing, relaxed environment, great music, friendly staff and local hangout. I learned a lot about Old Town while chatting with a local next to me at the bar. Making new friends is easy to do here. Their local brews and margarita's are very good and the food is equally yummy.... More

Kelly's was recommended to one of our group by the owner of the guest house she was staying at. I had Fish and Chips and the house-made beer, and my wife had a seafood plate on pasta with tomato-alfredo sauce and a Dark and Stormy. We shared a Coconut Shrimp appetizer. The house made beer is good -- I make... More

We have enjoyed Kelly's many time over the years, especially during Fantasy Fest. They offer a great location (near the start on Whitehead, away from the craziness on Duval) to watch the parade, with a wonderful buffet ahead of the festivities. We always meet the nicest people during the event.

We dropped by Kelly's because it was a local brewery, and found happy hour! The space is beautiful...the outside area has a tree canopy! We sat in the bar area outside. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable! And, suggestions for happy hour...you MUST try the fish dip! One of the best I have eaten! And, try the house beers,... More

We stopped because we were with my friend< Kelly. We ordered drinks and were given a dinner menu even though it was 2:30. The guys in our group didn't find anything they wanted to try but Kelly and I ordered appetizers. My conch fritters were really tasty and Kelly's coconut shrimp were good. The beer on the other hand was... More

Found this place a block off from Duval. It was late afternoon so they had a happy hour deal going on. We had some really awesome chicken wings. The service was poor. The place wasn't very busy but it still took forever to get service.

Had to wait for about 20 min before being seated. The lady kept apologizing but there are plenty of vacant tables for us to get seated. This could have been better. Food was good.

Great bar with a good beer selection and good happy hour apps. We ate dinner in the outside garden area and the food and service was very good.

We came with a group of friends and celebrated a birthday. Jeff was fantastic and made it such a fun and personalized experience we had to come back again before we left the island. We tried all the appetizers - favorites were the coconut shrimp, stuffed avocado, and the ahi tuna!
