We went twice during our vacation. The food was amazing, so was the service. I would highly recommend Kelly's over the Shanty!

Stopped in for a late dinner and drinks, which both underwhelmed. The building itself and atmosphere were very nice- we ate in the vault. I cannot say much about the food, it truly was just average...we actually ate a few bites and just boxed it up to go and tossed it when we got back to the hotel.

Kelly's was recommended and did not disappoint. It is in a historic building with lots of heavy wood decor and you feel like you stepped into an old Irish pub. The food was very good with all happy.

What more do I need to say other than BEST SHE-CRAB SOUP ON THE ENTIRE EASTERN SHORE? Seriously delicious menu and charming architecture. Sit in the part of the dining room that was the old bank vault!! Casual and terrific!

This was a nice little pub. It has a neat history of the building formally being an old bank. They actually have some dining area in the old vault which is cool.

The food was okay, but the service could be better. Our server was attentive, but there was little to no welcome or "have a nice day."
