Here's a place that as a local is a regular stop. It has the best view of the river from inside which in rainy Oregon is a definite plus. Food is particularly tasty. Service can be slow but is otherwise good. A discriminating visitor might see this place as a find especially on a rainy day and if you are... More

Lunch was good, not a big place. Food was good, nothing exceptional. Service is average. I had a steak salad, and my husband had a Flat Iron Steak Sandwich. It has a nice view of the River. We were there for Rod's and Rhody's Car Show. I think they could have better service.

If you're in Florence definitely try and eat here. The Dungeness Crab Mac & Cheese was excellent and the Ribs were of equal quality. The place has a lovely soul and is a charming place to spend and evening with a nice view of the bay. The prices are reasonable and the beverage menu is full of good options. Our... More

Try the crab stuffed portobello mushrooms! Want to try something different? Crab macaroni and cheese! The salads my favorite!

Not the most glamorous of decors, but don't let that influence you. The food was outstanding: crab stuffed portabella mushroom, lobster roll, pork tacos, mac & cheese - I tried them all and very delicious, excellent prices. Unfortunately, as we sat in the back, I saw many people come in, look around, and leave because of the sloppy decor. Dear... More

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
