I grew up in the Boston area and of course was Kelly's (at the beach) a regular place to visit - especially in the late (or should I say early) hours. This is a memory I've kept - and going back to the area looked forward to have lunch there - although time and travel made a visit to Route 1 easier. What a huge place!!
In order to experience as much as possible - we had the Surf and Turf - Lobster Roll and Roast beef sandwhich. Unfortunately, the real experience simply did not live up to the memories of times past. The roast beef had no flavor and the lobster the same. As with many restaurants, the quantity of their business did not help the quality. The soggy rolls and obviously just defrosted fillings simply wasn't worth the price and as I was with someone who had never experienced Kelly's, I really needed to apologize for going to someplace that had such a low quality. Maybe the beach still is good, but ths was my first and last time to go to this place.
