Great Seafood with outdoor seating under the trees

My husband ordered the grouper (local fish of the day) and said it was EXCELLENT and reaffirmed the menu note of "served simply grilled". Since my husband is a grouper expert, you can count on his review. It was served with rice/vegetables. Since I didn't come with a big appetite and it was... read more

We were looking for a place to have lunch and found Kelly's Caribbean Bar and Grill. Fresh and delicious food and nice selection of cocktails. Great service too. Will definitely come back!

We stopped here for lunch and it was above and beyond good. We had margaritas and mojitos. The wings were some of the best I've ever had. Very delicious!

Great food and nice atmosphere. We had dinner outside after sunset. We enjoyed a lovely dinner, local beer and island cocktails. Very relaxing and nice, yet casual dining experience. We had the jerk chicken and filet and both were very tasty!

About a block off of duval; because of that its a bit quieter than the more established locations. Good beer and food - excellent outdoor dining. Staff was friendly and food came out fast and correct.

The setting is very pretty, a nice garden. good seating and an interesting bar with motifs of airplanes, a reference to the owner's (Kelly McGillis) appearance in the movie Top Gun. The food has the attitude of being outstanding, which it is not. Solid American cooking, fried and blackened fish, not bad but nothing special, definitely on the higher end... More

Love sitting outdoors to dine. It was noon but the trees provided shade and the drinks cooled us off. Our waiter was friendly. Our sandwiches, fish tacos and lobster toasted cheese, were tasty and fries just right. The bar area was large enough for a crowd. Glad we went.

Iam a local and my family and I went to Kelly's for lunch. We had another great meal as my wife and I had the hogfish special. So fresh and cooked to perfection. The server we had was on the ball and was great with my younger kids. The General Manager stopped by to add more of a personal touch... More
