The original kelly's Roast beef is on Revere Beach Boulevard, Revere, Massachusetts. They are known for their roast beef sandwiches. They also make an incredible array of fish dishes, such as a clam plate, scollop plate, fish and chips plate, and my favorite, the shrimp plate. All of the dishes come with onion rings and coleslaw. On a cold, rainy,... More

Even though the name is Kelly's Roast Beef and my sister says they are really good, I go here all the time for seafood. They have wonderful Shrimp and Scallop dinners at a reasonable price. I have eaten in and taken them home as well. With Lent coming up a really good deal.

First of all, when i saw the side order of Mac & Cheese on the menu(by Kraft), it should have been a signal that it was indeed, boxed Mac & Cheese you buy at a market for $1.00. (their price 2.95) I had ordered that as well as a roast beef sandwich, that was absolutely disgusting. The "meat" looked as... More

I had eaten at Kelly's in Revere as a child, and as an adult, the new locations in Saugus and Danvers - but I now live in CA - and it has been a few years since my last stop. I almost passed up the most recent visit based on some so - so trip advisor reviews - but so... More

Kelly's tartar sauce is just simply the best - ever. Consistently thick, chunky with just the right amount of tang. The mouthwatering tartar sauce is the perfect condiment with the perfectly fried fish. My new favorite drink is Pibb - cherry flavor - right from the cool drink dispenser. Self serve was fun and the many choices are sure to... More

Kelly's have been around for generations and started in Revere MA on the ocean. It is so popular that the lines were always long and the food good. The Danvers one is very slow getting the food out and don't know whey, the other ones are much quicker getting the food out. Fish dinner is best deal in town.

I remember begging my mother to bring me to Kelley's as a child. All the food was fresh and tasted homemade. It still tastes fresh but there is something missing. Maybe they source ingredients from a different place. The fish is fresh but it just bland. The roast beef sandwiches are huge and can be customized. The salads are great.

Stopped here with my boyfriend and his family on our trip to Salem. The food was okay, generic fast food, maybe slightly higher quality. The problem I had there was not the food, I didnt expect 5 star. The problem was the service. We were helped by what looked like a group of 15-17 year old boys who just looked... More

Full of at least 1 lb of lobster it is my sandwich of choice when we visit Kelly's. My husband likes the roast beef which they are famous for and also the giant hamburger! Food is... More

Good hotdogs. Roast beef sandwiches good. Clam chowder too thick with lots of potato and maybe 1 or 2 clams.
