This iconic restaurant has been around for many years, and we can certainly see why. The first location is in Revere Beach, now they have grown to many locations in the Mass. area. Its not just roast beef! They serve excellent Lobster Rolls, and good burgers too. Good value. Big Roast Beef sandwiches! Whenever i'm traveling to the Boston Area,... More

The roast beef sandwich was great. rare, warm, tender and tasty. The lobster roll was terrible, watery and tasteless. I felt that it had previously frozen knuckle and claw meat. I found no tail meat. Their sign says they use the meat of two one pound lobsters; they must have discovered tailless lobsters.

My normal disclaimer: my firm provides services to lots of companies and as such, I do not post negative or neutral reviews. Kelly's was one of the first "fast food" restaurants we ate at after we moved to Melrose. Wow. Oh wow. The restaurant is very attractively decorated based on there long time Revere Beach tradition. It is spacious and... More

Roast beef truly is fantastic as well as their fried foods. So if you want good quality roast beef, french fries or onion rings, you'll be pleased. Prices are a bit high for fast food but you're paying for location and the name. This is a good place to take kids because it's a fast food restaurant and noisy. Lots... More

I have been many places that say they have the best clams...Kelly's has the best clams, lobseter rolls and Fisherman platters around, even the roast beef is the best. My Family has been going to Kellys when it was only on Revere Beach. they have grown and still remain great.

We've been visiting Kelly's for years. Lately, almost exclusively, the one in Saugus. This type of Roast Beef sandwich is unique to the North Shore. Other local restaurants offer a similar menu but Kelly's beef is always fresh, warm, rare, and well seasoned. The seafood and chowder are also terrific so it's easy to find things for a large group... More
