Very Good!

Wife's braised ribs were so good, soooo good! My lamb burger was good. Service was very good. Building is interesting. I would for sure go back.

We were on the beach and didn't feel like returning to our house for lunch. We grabbed takeout sandwiches and ate them on the beach. The sandwiches were all good and the salad was made with fresh ingredients. The fries were excellent. The people were friendly

Loved the old architecture of this place! The food was very good and Gene Kelly was a very good host; showed us the before and after pics of how the pub was rebuilt. We went on a Sunday so it wasn't crowded.

Great atmosphere - they did a lovely job of turning this old bank into a restaurant. It is a bit on the noisy side, so this isn't a place to go for a quiet dinner. Quality of the food was average. Friendly staff.

We've vacationed in Cap Charles twice and both times made a point to go for dinner at Kelly's. We're two families and they were always ready to serve both the adults and the kids. The food is standard pub fare but very well done and I especially recommend their own creations like pub chips and pickle chips!

Stopped in for late lunch with my brother. The specials were awesome, fish tacos with all fresh ingredients were wonderful (says Brother) and my goat chess salad with grilled shrimp was divine. I would stay away from the nachos (saw many folks order and leave them on the tables). Neat interior space of this historic building and full bar as... More

When I walked in the door at 1 pm on a Sunday, the employees seemed a bit harried, though they were friendly. Given my lifetime of Restaurant/Hotel management I can usually spot a less than stellar experience before it starts. It looked as if it would be less than stellar, but once seated it all came together. With expectations in... More

Slow service to no service and the food was meh. I wouldn't go back. Not sure what happened, but it was rough from start to finish. I ended up leaving money on the table because it seemed silly to wait so long for someone to give me my check. No idea how so many things could go wrong in a... More

The food was quite mediocre, we ordered the fish tacos, a Ruben, and the crab and Brie burger. The menu lacked description leaving us playing a game of culinary Russian roulett which 2/3 of us lost and the remaining one was completely confused by his order. The table first of all was filthy, for it was covered in lemon seeds... More
