We were impressed with the food, service, and their willingness to put the Yankees on for us. The menu choices and daily specials are interesting and yummy. The beer selection is impressive. I was overcharged for my meal (the menu price was lower) but otherwise, no complaints! :) great place!!

We stopped at Kelly's last year for lunch and thought that it was great. On a recent trip to Virginia Beach we decided to drive the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel to go back to Kelly's for lunch. It was as good as the year before.

We loved the brick walls, the great pub atmosphere. What we were disappointed in was the undercooked fish (raw in the center) and the tough steak. The salad was good; the she crab soup was amazing. Service was definitely lacking (we were never offered water; the waiter seemed disinterested).

Don't be on a hurry here.. Although the food was good.. The kitchen was behind and took a while to get orders out. Very good Irish pub atmosphere.

We tried Kelly's on a whim, went in for a drink and liked the place. Chris is a great bartender and made us feel welcome immediately. We saw what some others were eating and decided to try dinner. Great choice! The Irish Nachos were very good and more than 2 of us could eat. We got the Fish Tacos and... More

A bit slower on the off season, but always a great place for excellent food as well as great music. Incredible supporter of up and coming bands as well as seasoned artists. I first came here three years ago and have been coming ever since.

Just finished lunch here. Forget that the place is charming as heck and the wait staff was friendly and professional. The FOOD was great. She crab soup is flavorful and full of crab. Crab cake was a monster and a good value. Fish tacos were more than I could put away. Great lunch!

I go here every other month for their Monday prime rib special. The prime ribs they serve are large and absolutely excellent. My problem is that my favorite beers are Heineken and Fat Tire. They never have Heineken and sometimes have Fat Tire. If neither are available I can settle for Yuengling but many times they are out of this... More

We were out for a motorcycle rode up the Eastern Shore. Stopped into Kelly's on a recommendation. It was quite nice. The Shepard's Pie was excellent, and the Irish Scallops were an interesting and delicious twist. The beer selection wasn't "awesome", but the was something for most palates. The service was quickly quick and friendly. We'll definitely be back.

Cape Charles is small and during the off season most places are closed. We like Kelly's because no matter what time of the year we visit our Eastern Shore home, its open and consistent. My husband and I visited Kelly's once again this weekend and as usual everything was good. The crap soup is nice, not the typical she crap...a... More
