The waiter was nice but the food was a little slow to arrive, we ate late so it could have been why there were few people dining, however, Duval was very busy still and just around the corner. The Conch fritters were very good as well as the Lime Tarter sauce. I thought the coconut shrimp was a little tough.... More

We arrived the night before a lengthy shut down. Food choices and beer types were limited. This should have been posted at entrance in detail. Too many great places in key west to try again.

Chuck organized our wedding reception and it was a hit. The food and beverage were just as advertised and the location was perfect for our wedding party. Having a reception or party on the Kelly's balcony is something we would recommend to everyone.

Stopped here for lunch; party of six. One waiter was handling a dozen tables which made the service slow. But he did the best he could. Food and drinks were good but pricey. The dining area was basic. Needs more decorations.

Kelly's Caribbean Bar & Grill is a nice place to stop and relax from the heat and crowds in Key West. We stopped for a beer while walking around Key West basically to beat the heat of the day. Beer just average but the place is cool and relaxing with a laid back atmosphere. Beware of your bill, because they... More

Wonderful service and food. Very nice location. Very nice bartenders, that don't ignore you. Interesting menu. Would definitely recommend for lunch or dinner. Martin was very friendly, and a good server.

Kelly's used to be our go-to-place in Key West for happy hour. It's still okay, but it's lost the feeling of anyone caring. Happy Hour prices are okay, food is good, but the place has no energy, and just feels like a downer. Bartenders are inattentive and not really that friendly. Were there three times, and none of the tvs... More

We stopped here nearly every day of our Key West visit for Happy Hour. The drinks and food items were very reasonably priced, the bar staff was great, and we really enjoyed the Key Lime margaritas!

Words can not express how great this place is. My husband and I had our wedding reception at Kelly's on July 17th. We reserved the rooftop for a seated dinner and couldn't have been happier. Planning the event from out of town could have been difficult but Chuck made the planning stage so simple, affordable, and stress free. He was... More
