Kelly's Roast Beef has a huge following and I always see it on Phantom Gourmet. When I arrived I felt like I walked into a McDonald's. I know it's pretty close to fast food, so that wasn't a huge problem. The girl at the counter wasn't very helpful. There were a lot of employees just standing around which was bizarre... More

The fried clams are some of the best in the state. The lobster roll was huge and far superior to any other. Lobster meat was falling out of the roll there was so much meat. No fillers involved just lobster. The clams were wonderful although a tad over fried. On my visit to the area over a e day period... More

I don't understand how people can complain about this Kelly's outlet. It may not be at the beach but the super-clean interior with the large cylindrical fish tank and old-fashoined carousel theme is pleasant enough, and the food is consistently well above average. I've been coming here regularly for over a decade and am never disappointed. On our most recent... More

I had not been to this Kelly's in over a year, and I remember it being better than this visit. The large roast beef sandwich is truly large, but the beef was overcooked, medium-well with hardly any pink and somewhat dry. There are better places for roast beef sandwiches. French fries are nothing special. The best thing about them is... More

Kelly's is "fast food" but a step above the normal chains. The Roast Been sandwiches are excellent. They have small and large, and the small is a very big sandwich. Along with my roast beef today at lunch, I had their onion rings. Good but not great. They were well prepared but lacked seasoning.....very bland (and I tend to be... More

My daughter got a clam roll and I got a roast beef with onion rings. The grease used was old and heavy tasting. And they did not drain the fried foods. They were dripping in oil. I got a stack of napkins and the 8 napkins were saturated with grease. I gave up and threw them out. My daughter did... More

I went in for a take-out order. While I was waiting, I watched a man sweeping and cleaning the dining area. Then this same man ladled up my soup, with his ungloved hands on the rim of the cup, and then grabbed my to go container. Some food was sticking out the side and again with his ungloved hand, pushed... More

I think the Kelly's on the beach will remain special...however, it's Natick location is worth a trip. The seafood is fresh, baked haddock, shrimp plate, fried clams. We tried them all. The onion rings are great. I remember the portions being larger, but...still decent. Skip the fries...nothing special. You order at the counter and they bring the food to you.... More

Dining room was cold, had the clam and scallop platter. Nothing distinctive about flavor, clams had sand in them, scallops were cooked properly. French fries were bland and unsalted. Should have gone to a name brand eatery.

Just because this place carries the name Kelley's, it doesn't mean it has the same quality of food. We have been three times each time thinking it would be better. No dice. The beef is overcooked, dry and tasteless. The sandwiches are a good size but I would prefer less meat and more flavor to what they offer. I hope... More
