Great, classic take-out at Revere Beach

This place is a rather well known fixture from yesteryear at Revere Beach, which used to have a Coney Island feel until the seventies, when all the amusement rides were torn down and up went the condos, and this place has stood the test of changing times. Now, there area number of Kelly's in the... read more

I grew up going to Kelly's back in the 70s. Nothing will ever beat the original. I kind of hated to see this franchised but even the new locations are very good. But nothing beats the original. The roast beef is always great - rare to medium rear. Have never had a bad sandwich at this place. They even taught... More

Visited Kelly's for lunch on a gorgeous sunny day. Perfect place to get a sandwich, walk across the street and eat lunch sitting on a bench looking out over a sandy beach. Roast beef sandwich was excellent - tasted and looked great. Good value for the money. Note that Kelly's is a take-out sandwich stand - no interior seating. I... More

My Dad's family grew up in and around Revere and this has been a family tradition for decades. Any time I'm near I have to stop by. The fried clams and/or haddock are just simply perfect. The roast beef sandwiches are terrific and piled with meat. And their clam chowder (chowdah) is also great. The coffee is just fantastic for... More

My family has been going to Kelly's for years. Even now that we live out of state, whenever we visit family and friends, we make a beeline from Logan to Kelly's. They have the best lobster rolls around, and at a really reasonable price. I've never tried anything else on the menu, so I can't comment, but the lobster rolls... More

My husband use to love going to Kelly's growing up on the beach, what a disappointment! Beyond awful, the roast beef was dry, the lobster roll had no taste at all & the bread wasn't even fresh. We'll just have to remember how good it was years a go. Barbra Gradozzi

Been going here since the 1970's and it's still great. You get quality food at good prices. My favorite is the fried clam plate followed by the scallop plate. They do good cheeseburgers and roast beef too. Parking can be tricky especially in the summer. Definitely worth stopping by if you are in the area.

This place is actually recommended by my manager and she said this was definitely a no-miss place on Revere beach. So here I am! Have had quite a few lobster rolls so I decided to go with the roast beef burger. Beef was juicy and tasty, fries that go with the burger were also cooked perfect. I would definitely come... More

My sister ordered a burger and had to wait THIRTY minutes for a burger. When she asked about it...they rummaged around the kitchen looking for it for 10 minutes...INSTEAD of making another one...didn't offer her a refund...she had to ask. My fish sandwich was extremely bland. The burger wasnt seasoned. The chowder was very runny. Basically water soup. Oh but... More

Why visit home? Family, Fellowship, and clams from Kelly's! Oh, yes, you can get roast beef and fried shrimp! But, clams with bellies are my comfort food with all the smells and flavor of home! Perfect place for lunch on the beach!
