Kelly's is the quintessential local Irish-style pub in a very small, but really cool, seaside town. It has a quaint and cozy atmosphere, friendly servers and delicious, simple food. I'm pretty sure our booth was in an area that used to be inside an old bank vault! I would go back for the food in a heartbeat.

The Bad: 1) The first order of wings they brought out were room temperature at best. Seems like they had been sitting out for a while. We sent them back. 2) The service here is really slow. Don't come if you're in a hurry at all. We cancelled our last round of beers because we finished our meal before they... More

I go here every time i make my way into town. When they have live music it seems like everyone from town comes here. I often come in the off season which creates a lot more inviting pleasantries than during the season from locals. they can make some mean drinks and are quite accommodating

It was a quiet Saturday afternoon but a very pleasant environment. We were pleased to be able to switch the TV to Notre Dame.

One of the few places that was open when we were in Cape Charles. The food and atmosphere was very good.

We had dinner at this pub, located in a renovated bank building. Was a very popular place for visitors and locals. The food was delicious and more than could be eaten at one sitting. Wait staff was friendly and regularly checked in with us. Prices are very reasonable considering how much you get.

I had a pub burger with cheese, wife had a crab and Brie burger, friends had a Reuben sandwich and a turkey wrap. All of the food was... More

This place used to be pretty good, but unfortunately, we have seen it go downhill in the past couple of years. The restaurant just looks and feels dirty and the food is no longer the caliber that it used to be. It's a shame because it is located in a cool old building that could have a lot of charm.... More
