Great looking venue

Family evening meal, no reservation and it was about 9pm. Greeted warmly by the host and shown to a quiet table next to the booths. Waiting staff were slow to arrive and slow to serve throughout the evening - but as they say generally in Cape Charles: "slow down, this ain't the mainland". Even so... read more

This place has a ton of charm and potential, so I was really disappointed in our experience there. First, the building is amazing. It is circa 1907 and has so much character. I was pretty excited to see what the food was like. There was one server and she had her hands full, so there was no time to be... More

Thank you for showing southern hospitality to this Texan who is far away from home! I sat at the bar solo and quickly made friends with 3 locals who not only took an interest in my trip up north but gave suggestions that ended with my re-routing plans over the next 2 days. The service was excellent, the beer cold... More

We didn't get to eat here because they were so disorganized that we just gave up and went elsewhere. We have eaten here several times before when staying in Cape Charles and the food and service was great. We hope that they get their act together again and then we will try again.

We went to Kelly's for an early dinner. The restaurant is in a former bank and looks a little like an Irish pub - lots of wood and dark. We ate in the former vault - really cool safe door! They have a bar with several TVs, we were told it can get lively with a good sports event. Since... More

On the busy 4th of July we ate outside at Kelly's then watched fireworks from our table. I have enjoyed meals here before and they managed to totally satisfy me again on a frantically busy holiday weekend with mixed seafood over linguine. Other meals at the table were crab cakes and shepherds' pie. Our waiter Alex was attentive, provided good... More

We had a group of nine for dinner. We dined here in past years and really liked this restaurant. This year we found the quality had slipped. They were out of most items that we looked forward to, and with exception of the salads, the meals were not up to their past level. Hope that they will improve.

We had our wedding dinner at Kelly's and it could not have been more perfect! The food was the best we had on our entire destination wedding/honeymoon trip and the service was excellent.

Limited choices for places to eat in Cape Charles had us ending up in this pub. It had a nice Irish pub ambiance and friendly waitstaff but the food was average. They did have a decent selection of beers though!
