This is the first Time I didn't get seafood When I went here, I don't get good Pastrami in Ohio. Theirs was very tender, flavorful. I thought I got a lot for my money. Plus the View was great.

I can fly to Hartford and drive up to Western Mass. Instead, I fly to Boston just for the Kelly's experience. It's only minutes up Route 1 from the airport where I can savor the fried scallops [in that big white box] before driving Route 2 to relatives in Greenfield. Folks suggest making life simpler, "Hey I know another place... More

If you are in the area and hungry then the food is ok and they have good turnover on products but they are over priced and uninspired.

Very delicious lobster roll.. better than belle isle restaurant in my opinion! The bread roll is important to me and it is so good with huge portion of lobster meat. Yum yum! Don't forget to ask for extra pickles! Quick service and enjoy the view of beach!

I see other reviewers remarking on items other than roast beef. I have been to Kelly's several times, and just have to get the roast beef. It is perfectly seasoned and cooked. The sandwiches are piled high with it, on a toasted bun. Absolute heaven. The best meal on a nice day sitting on a bench at Revere Beach.

This is not the first, second, or third time I have been here but it is every time when I am visiting Boston. I do not recall finding any other place in the whole world where they serve better lobster roll than here. First of all, the value is just amazing given the amount of lobster meat, its quality, and... More

Fish fry is excellent, but all their offerings are tasty. Fast service, fun atmosphere. Open almost every day of the year, even in the worst winter weather.

I know they say the speciality is roast beef but the lobster roll was 5-star fabulous. Side of onion rings was generous in size but really lacking flavor. Needed salt or ketchup or ranch... something. They also gave me the wrong soda. Check you stuff when they call your name. Super nice staff. If you happen to walk by or... More

Any of the Kelly's you visit will be superb, but very expensive. If you are visiting from out of town you might as well go to the one in Revere. But, watch your purse and wallet. Not exactly the safest place on earth. As seen in the move Good Will Hunting.
