The Clams are Amazing!

I was lucky enough to have a Boston based work colleague drive me out to the beach for a roast beef sandwich. (I never would have known about it .) The place was great. The sandwich was good, but the clams were amazing! Not sure I have ever had something like them. They are worth the price!

I grew up going to Kelly's on Revere Beach whenever we had to go to the Boston airport. The fried clams, haddock and scallops are fabulous, as are their roast beef sandwiches and they also have great coffee. While visiting a cousin last October, we drove to Everett and while passing through Medford I spied this Kelly's. I asked my... More

Their seafood taste fresh I love their clan roll the clams are huge. The French fries are crispy and of course the... More

Kelly's is a small chain of restaurants that make great roast beef sandwiches as well as great lobster rolls at reasonable prices. They were cited recently as having one of the 10 best lobster rolls in Boston. We even use them to cater events for us.

Good roast beef sandwiches and fries but skip the onion rings. Batter on the onion rings was too heavy and rings were a little greasy

You can expect good food at all their locations. Salt isn't added to the fries or onion rings, and they are not greasy. Sandwiches are a nice size for the money. There's a good variety of choices for seafood or meat lovers. If you can, visit the Revere Beach location for the traditional experience of eating Kelly's on the beach.

I go to Kelly's when I want something quick but better than fast food. It's a Boston institution, and they still have their first "stand" on Revere beach. You can depend on their roast beef sandwich (try it with raw onion and barbeque sauce). It's a generous portion. For the quintessential Boston original grilled frankfurter, try Kelly's. They grill the... More

Kelly's is our "go to spot" when we want something fast and tasty - and the variety is more than enough for every taste or dietary need. For some of us the orders never vary - it's fish and chips - or even better - the full fish plate (with several types of fish, scallops, etc.) - everything is always... More

I was out at lunch and decided to go to Kelly's for a change of pace from the usual sub shops. I often take visitors here as it is a bit of a local institution, and the food is always made fresh and is very good. I frequently have the roast beef, which they claim as their specialty, but I... More

Went here for a quick bite - I live a mile down the road. By the time I got home, I was on the toilet for 2 hours. NEVER AGAIN
