The owners are always on sight and listen to their customers and comments and suggestions. Irish entertainment on Friday nights is always fun too!

Four of us attended May Kelly's Restaurant to celebrate my mother's 96th birthday. The menu is varied, and the food is good, but not outstanding. I had a fish meal, my sister had beef, my mother had turkey, and my sister's friend had a vegetable entre. The service was alright, although the waitress was very busy and the service was... More

This is an older establishment in the area that needs some updating. We were there on a Thursday night at the end of the ski season. The service was slow as there was only one person working the bar area, where we sat to watch the Bruins game. The food was mediocore at best. The speards pie had almost no... More

We sat in the pub side of the restaurant, along the back. The walls were covered and inspired some great conversation! A lady whom we are assuming is May, came around and also wished us well when we left. We tried the potato cakes and they were unique and delish. For entrees we tried the sampler (more than enough for... More

The atmosphere and music are worth a visit to May Kelly's, but the food is disappointing. Nice place to visit after a meal for drinks at the bar.

This is a great restaurant, with great ambiance. The portions are huge, and my family and I split 2 meals, and never walk away hungry. The turkey dinner is just like Thanksgiving, and the service is excellent. I would highly recommend.

You go back to what you know and where you have experienced the service to be excellent, the food to be excellent and the price to be just right. This was a repeat visit during our annual ski trip to New Hampshire and as expected we were once again not disappointed. This time we chose one of the 2 for... More

If you want a casual restaurant in North Conway with great food and huge portions, this is the place to go. This time we had the chicken pot pie, beef stew and fish and chips with a side of onion rings over two days in the area. Always leave feeling really full and happy! The staff is extremely friendly and... More

We had just spent the day travelling to North Conway and were looking forward to have supper at May Kellys. We were kind of disappointed when we parked the car because the parking looked kind of full, figuring the pub would be full. But luckily for us there is lots of room in the pub. The atmosphere is wonderful lots... More

I enjoy the Sunday afternoon Irish music - and the food and drinks that go with it. Get there a little before 3, and settle in. It is a wonderful way to end the day.
