I don't mind paying close to $20 for a lobster roll that you need a fork to start on. However, from here I sadly got more lettuce than lobster. Very disappointed.

Not sure when reviewer got "fried clams to die for" but I haven't had good clams at the Medford location for years. Always very greasy and chewy. Roast beef is pretty good but the prices on most items have increased dramatically. Don't recommend Kelly's in Medford as there are better places to get the fried fish and most other menu... More

I have been eating at Kelly's for over 30 years. If you love fried seafood or lobster rolls, you are going to love Kelly's.

Went to Kelly's in Medford. The design of the drive through in the parking lot is not great. You really have to pay attention. The food is good but, they are overpriced. I still prefer Kelly's at Revere Beach ( the original) . I really do not go there very much, they do always have a good staff.

We had the fried clam platter and fish and chips. The food came out in a timely manner and was fresh, hot, and delicious. This was a first visit for us but we'll be back when we are in the area.

I went there today craving a lobster roll. It was pricey, but very tasty. I washed it down with a chocolate frappe, and also had a bag of potato chips. For a place out of town, it's worth the trip. I recommend it to anyone who wants roast beef or seafood. But bring extra cash, or at least a credit... More

A go to place for fried clams. The Kelly's clam plate is consistently excellent. While the roast beef sandwich is fine and the lobster roll is good, I recommend the fried clams.

We wanted to go to this Kelly's for a lunch gathering involving 23 family members. We knew that Kelly's is not really set up for this type of function, so we called the week before to ask the manager the best way it could be handled. She said that she would not be on duty that day, but that she... More

The food and service is great. Prices are a bit high for most items. The dining area is kept very clean. Overall a good alternative to most fast food chains.
