Trip advisor did not let us down. A truly unique experience. Recent visit visiting North Conway. Owner hostess makes you feel right at home and seats you, and checks on you and your experience. More memorabilia than you can look at, everywhere you look something interesting to see. We walked around after dinner to check out more. Service was excellent... More

We tried the Grilled Peach salad and the Meatloaf. Both the entrees were really good. Loved the décor of the place. It gives it a very nice cozy feel. Got some snaps of the old Irish items they have as decorations like the post office, old traditional shoes, old timey corn husking m/c, type-writer, old lanterns on the ceiling, old... More

Late one evening, after returning to town from a trip to the top of Mt. Washington, we were hungrily looking for a place to eat dinner. We had perused Tripadvisor for the best-rated restaurants, but had ruled out May Kelly's because we equated "Irish food" with just the traditional pub standbys, and have never been huge fans. Well, getting hungrier... More

I visit North Conway frequently (winters and summers mainly) and every time I eat here it's great. Good for couples or families. I highly recommend the corned beef, Gaelic chicken and meatloaf. If you eat any of those meals and are not blown away then maybe pub food is not up your alley. The prices are reasonable and service has... More

While in town asked for a good lunch spot and was sent here. Best food of the trip, hands down. We had the shepherd pie, chicken pot pie, curry chicken, wings and BLT. Everything was good, bread was deadly!! Ate two baskets worth. Well worth stopping by for food.

This was our second year in a row we visited the White Moutain's, and May Kelly's was again the restaurant of choice for my wife and I. We were not disappointed. I had an amazing meal...Shepard's Pie, and my wife had the sampler platter. All I can say is Wow. Well done again. This will quickly become a tradition for... More

I first visited May Kelly's about 7 years ago and it was fantastic. I just spent the week of August 15th in North Conway, NH along with my wife, son and my brother and his wife and their daughter. as well as another brother. I was hoping that my current dining experience would be as good as the first time.... More

We had passed this restaurant 20+ times and never thought of giving it a chance. Honestly, it looks cluttered & dumpy on the outside. Then we notice the glowing reviews and the promise of a grand view. I was doubtful and I was glad to be proven wrong. The view from the patio/deck out back was nothing short of amazing.... More
