I used to love going to Kelly's but today will be my last trip. It's Saturday, a busy day and there were only two people working, weekends need more people working. It took over an hour for the four of us to get our food and the waiter seemed very upset to be working. He never asked if the food... More

Kellys Cantina is a very comfortable place, with great views, great people, and awesome food. Crab cakes are a must have. Awesome dinner.

The menu offers some delicious sounding food, but our dinners did not live up to their descriptions. And they were a bit pricey for what we received. Our server was pleasant but not friendly. (The lawn chairs are not comfortable.) We felt like we were in intruding on the owner and her friends who were gathering on the tiny deck.... More

We went to Kelly's because the menu looked appetizing. So we walk into the restaurant & a female employee ( chef, waitress, or ??) is sprawled out on a chair watching tv. No greeting NOTHING. The bartender approached us & seated us. He mumbled something, could not understand. Then walks away. He came back to take our order 10 minutes... More

We were drawn in for lunch by the menu and view (which is very pretty). We ordered right away from a limited but appealing beach-town cafe menu (fish tacos, crab Mac and cheeses, a few sandwiches) and proceeded to wait. And wait. We waited about 45 minutes for our food. One of our group got a soup about 20 minutes... More

The town was lovely. After reading the menu we stopped in for lunch. The atmosphere was different, but it worked. We had a nice view of the river. The place is small but we were fine for lunch. The glasses of wine served were great! Staff was friendly. The food was tasty and different. Definitely a nice experience. Very relaxing,... More

I eat here periodically. The flavors are chef-like: unique and delicious. Kelly is a bubbly caring host. She also cares very much about her restaurant's reputation. If you have a concern, let her know and she will make it right!

The food and wine were good. A pleasant room with two very large windows overlooking the river. Binoculars are available for viewing the waterfowl.

Enjoyed the quieter atmosphere of the restaurant. All the food was good, the beet salad was excellent.
