Food was excellent and more than we could eat. Waiter was great! We had the fish, oysters, steak and crab cakes. Dessert was cheesecake. Delicious!

We went here for drinks before a wedding the next day, and it was a nice little pub, the food was good, but our server was rude and making very inappropriate comments. I wish I remembered her name because she was obnoxious. Other than that the food was good and booze of course, is booze.

Kelly's was a cool little place. It's an old bank and we got to have dinner in what was the old vault. The atmosphere was very personal, and the staff were fine. We came a week before memorial weekend so it wasn't busy at all. But the waiter informed us that a few of the dishes we were looking at... More

This placed missed the mark mostly because of service. Food was decent. Not on my must go to list when we go back. Stick with the Brie burger.

We stayed in Cape Charles on our way from Florida to New Jersey. I decided to stop for a drink at Kelly's. What a fantastic stop. We met the owner/bartender Gene Kelly. He told us that Tuesdays dinner special is Fried Chicken, macncheese and corn bread. We went back later for dinner and fell in love with the comfort food,... More

Not a lot of choices in Cape Charles, so I was glad to find Kelly's. Pub food, burgers, soup, wings, sandwiches. Very good food. It is built from a very old bank building and has a lot of the original architecture and historical details, so it is quite beautiful and intriguing. I recommend it.

Whenever our house, Seashell Cottage is not booked we try to get down to beautiful Cape Charles. We routinely have lunch or dinner at Kelly's because we love the food, the spirit of the friendly people, and especially the ambiance of this small town Pub. The other evening, Friday night was buzzing and we patiently waited a very long time,... More

We waited over an hour and a half for appetizers that never showed up. We waited for a table for an extra 45 minutes on top of the original 45 minutes that was expected while our host drank beer and rolled silverware. Although the waitress was apologetic, when we were walking out the door there was no attempt to compensate... More
