Kelly's is worth a visit

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... read 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

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

Lived on Martha's Vineyard year around for years.....but moved to the Mountains on the Caliifornia/Nevada border.......and I missed New England Seafood....Wicked seafood. I had a lobster roll and of course Hope had the Ipswich whole belly fried clam plate with extra clams added. We smiled as we ate with zero talking. If only we could fly in seafood from Kelly's...

We've driven past this restaurant many times without ever considering it as we don't eat roast beef and tend to go to more formal places for seafood. I was really pleasantly surprised by this place. The staff was very attentive and knew the menu well, the food was very good and the ambience was a little more formal than expected.... More

We were disappointed with our food the last few times at this Kelly's. The roast beef was well done, even when I asked for very rare. The clams were gigantic and too chewy.

It's a roast beef joint, so I had to order roast beef. The girl at the counter was not really able to describe my sandwich very well, but I ordered it, along with a tossed salad, anyhow. The roast beef was quite tasty, although really, it was too big and I ended up not eating all of it. The salad... More

I have been going to Kelly's all of my life. I have mostly gone to the one at Revere Beach. Part of the fun was eating outside on the benches or on the beach itself. It is still my favorite Kelly's. I have been to all of them except for the one in Natick. I have only been to the... More

Kelly's has been a favorite for many years, but more recently they raised the prices and cut back the portions. People didn't go here for low prices, but they did have a strong connection to the generous portions, which along with the product quality made them famous. I and others miss you old Kelly's of not so very long ago.... More

I have been to a few of their locations over the many many years. We had our usual fried whole belly clams, scallops, onion rings and fries. Price was reasonable for the quantity provided, however the quality did not meet the usual Kellys I have had so many times in the past. The food was extremely greasy, the french fries... More
