I have been traveling to the North Conway region for almost thirty years now, and I made a huge mistake by not experiencing May Kelly's Cottage sooner! This was actually our second wonderful dining experience here, the first being in February. The hostess is outstanding and super friendly, she went out of her way to accommodate our three month old... More

We ate here on our last night of vacation and I wish I ate here every night of vacation! I was expecting another restaurant with mediocre American food. I was wrong! My expectations were exceeded! The portions are big and you should definitely share. My husband's fish and chips came with four large portions of fish! I recommend the Quahogs... More

Stopped in because it was rated so high. Entering it was not clear where the hostess station was, the place is a maze. The tables and seats are unique, we had a couch and two chairs. Brought our 4 year old grandson. The food came quickly enough to satisfy his attention span. I had the beef stew, it was okay,... More

If you have a day to enjoy and want to take a ride, or if you are headed home from North Conway, make a point to stop and have a delicious meal at May Kelly's. The first time there was on the recommendation of a clerk at one of the stores in North Conway, and we have been back there... More

We weren't sure what to expect, but the inside was adorable. Service was a little slow, but we were not in a rush. I ordered the sampler (under appetizers) and it had a small dish of three types of Irish stew. Was definitely a meal size, and was really delicious. Im not sure about the kids meal, but definitely a... More

Came here for dinner after reading reviews that were confirmed by the innkeepers at the B&B we stayed at. Arrived at about 7pm and boy was it ever a "happenin" place! It was bustling with noise and happy looking faces. We were warmly received and waited only 5 minutes, enough time to read a local newspaper review hung on the... More

We ate at May Kelly's for the first time tonight, and it is definitely a new family favorite. The decor is incredible. There is so much to see, with so many great little details. I've never seen a place like this. You could spend days just checking out all of the interesting things on display. The service was perfect. Our... More

Any time we're in North Conway we make sure to eat at May Kelly's. The food is awesome, especially the Potato Cakes! The atmosphere is fun and the staff is very friendly.

I have been a regular diner here for some time. This great restaurant is consistent in all that they deliver. The great food, service, hospitality and low prices are due to the owners being present, hands on and caring greatly about their name and reputation. One visit is normally enough to get a person hooked! (Meat lovers - give the... More

One of my favorite restaurants in the MW Valley. My last time here I had broiled haddock--the portion size was just right which left enough room for dessert (key lime pie, and delicious). I never seem to wait long here and if the weather's nice, the outside deck has a wonderful view of the Moats (and foreground ledges).
