Fast Fresh and Good

Fast food vibe with home cooked taste. Roast beef sandwich was huge and delicious. Onion rings the same. Where's the beef....certainly in the sandwich

I feel like when I orders a lobster roll at a drive through I should have know better, but since it's was TWENTY dollars, I thought I could trust it. Huge waste of money. Oh and the roast-beef is supper fatty. This was just a huge disappointment all around for the money.

I had not been to Kelly's in many years. I remember that it used to be on the expensive side. However, that is now an understatement as prices have skyrocketed on everything. I wanted to get the clams, but not at $25 for a small side order. We settled on two roast beef sandwiches and a small order of onion... More

We stumbled upon Kelly's while looking for someplace to have lunch before we headed back to NY. Our daughter-in-law had suggested a couple of places and this was the first one we found. We were very glad we did. It's not a fancy place; you order at the counter and they give you a number to put on your table,... More

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

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.

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!

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.
