After being disappointed by the other options, we came here. We had to wait for a table but the host was charming and helpful. They had a kids menu, great food and a good beer selection. Our server was helpful and attentive. They let you order off the lunch menu for dinner, which is helpful if you don't want a... More

We were in town over July 4th. Because of the weather, fireworks were being held the next night. We were worried that the few restaurants would be very busy, so we called to check and they said it was "about average". Not sure what that meant, we headed down. The restaurant was empty, which should have been the first sign... More

My boyfriend and I visited Kelly's last year and loved it. Had great food, service and an over all experience. Just recently visited, mid July 2014. The pub did not appear to be overly crowded, but we were asked to wait for a table which we didn't mind. After waiting 5-10 mins, we were seated and handed menus. We proceeded... More

My husband and I ate at Kelly's twice during our visit to Cape Charles- once for dinner and once for lunch. The atmosphere is really unique; I loved it. The food was very good, not exceptional (we ordered shrimp Ceasar salad, a pasta w/ chicken dish and turkey pesto wraps). The service was fine, but not overly impressive. The prices... More

My husband and I stopped here to watch the world cup game... the building is really neat and we enjoyed the setup. There was a good selection of beer on draft. The bartender was just ok. He was not very efficient, and he seemed to ignore us for much of the time we were there. I was not drinking, so... More

We loved our lunch here. The service was attentive and helpful--nothing above and beyond, but very good. The food was the clincher--we both ordered sandwiches and shared the cream of crab soup. The soup was so good that we recommended it to the diners next to us, who ordered one each and loved it just as much as we did.... More

We spent the July 4th holiday weekend in Cape Charles harbor on our boat at the marina owned by the town. We have eaten previously at Kelly's on prior boat visits to Cape Charles without complaint. This visit was a disaster from beginning to end, and a good example of what happens when there is inadequate management in the restaurant... More

We come here just about every time we visit Cape Charles, probably twice a year when we cruise here on our sailboat from the other side of the Chesapeake Bay. When you think of this sleepy, bay-side town on the Eastern Shore, you don't think you'd find a great pub, serving superb food and a diverse selection of beer (and... More
