Good but too pricey

We ordered for a family of four and added an order of clams. Our lunch bill was $80! All of it was good but their prices are top high. The breading on the onion rings was thicker and heavier than before. The fried clams were excellent. I just still have a little sticker shock.

For slightly elevated roast beef shop fair I would recommend Kelly's. Even though there's shrimp is frozen and their chicken fingers are not from scratch, there are many highlights to this establishment. First of all before mentioned fried shrimp are slightly larger and higher quality than other restaurants of this caliber. Second of all their turnover is just astonishing, especially... More

Wow, the best clam chowder in the world, bar none. If you haven't tried it you don't know what you are missing. Their seafood is awesome even though they are known for their roast beef. The chowder beats Legal, Weathervane, Jacks, et al hands down!!!

Last time I went the service was slow and the food cold. Been going to Kelly's for years but go to the location in Saugus now. Better service and food preparation

After a Saturday afternoon whale watch in Gloucester, heading home and the group decided to stop for dinner. I am glad we stopped at Kelly's Roast Beef. It was very good. I ordered the small roast beef sandwich and am glad I did, it was huge and very tasty. I want to go again very soon.

Ate at Kelly's about a week ago - their lobster rolls had been recommended. We were extremely disappointed....not particularly tasty, way too expensive ($18.75), and about 5-6 inches to be split between two people. Never again.

This location is spacious and easy to get to. The food is standard Kelly's with a selection of roast beef and fried seafood options. The onion rings are great. You order at the counter and go sit for them to bring the order out to you. At this location, I have noticed that the staff seems to be more interested... More

Clean and spacious. Food was OK, but not great. Varied menu including roast beef, fish sandwiches (such as lobster rolls) and salads. You order at the counter, then sit down and they bring your order to your table.

Whenever my husband and I can't think of a place to grab a light bite, we always seem to agree on Kelly's. They have the best Surf & Turf deal in town. The lobster salad roll is grilled to perfection with a very generous supply of lobster meat. It also comes with a
