Very friendly place! The food is the top of the line fast food but its really just a good restaurant with a drive through. Great all around! I went for the surf and turf for the first time and can't believe I haven't gotten this before it is so good! I was staying at the Courtyard and there are 25... More

A landmark on Revere Beach, this institution has expanded it's brand to the suburbs, as well as it's menu. The staples are the classic thin sliced quality roast beef sandwich on a grilled roll (the large can feed 2!), Fried large full belly Clams with the BEST Tartar Sauce you'll find, giant freshly made real lobster rolls, and classic hamburgers...

Although the Danvers location does not have the history that the Revere Beach location has, The Danvers location does have a nice new fish tank for all to view. For families who have kids, the fish tank and free wifi are great distractions while your food is being prepared. If you are uncertain what to get, there really aren't any... More

I wanted to like Kelly's because it seems to be an institution in this area, but the roast beef was dry and tasteless, and the onion rings were a huge disappointment. I won't be back.

I remember the first Kelly's in Revere back in the 60s . Then I moved away. I've come back and wow! has Kelly's evolved into something great. The roast beef has always been the star, but is now rivalled by the clams, scallops and shrimp plates. The refillable soft drinks come with 100 assorted flavours to choose from. I can't... More

I concur with others who recommend the seafood here. The coating is crispy and the fish is moist and tender. The portions are huge, so be prepared to share or take some home. As for the Roast Beef, it's good, but not the best. If you want a truly great roast beef sandwich head into Danvers center to Supreme Roast... More

There are much better roast beef places on the northshore, Nicks, Supremes and even Bill & Bobs, but the clam chowder, lobster rolls and fried seafood at Kelly's are the real stars on the menu!

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.
