“Great food, good service, central”
Reviewed December 22, 2012

We had a good seafood dinner here. Server was okay, not excellent. A bit noisy, but good fairly central location near historic waterfront.

“Specialty is fish and they do a good job”
Reviewed December 16, 2012 via mobile

I had the blackened salmon. It was cooked well. I don't often order fish at regular restaurants because I've been disappointed way too much in the past when fisj is served over cooked at the Resto. Since fish was their specialty at mckelvies I gave it a try and was happy with my choice. If you're looking for a decent meal you can count on mckelvies. But be ready to spend ~$45 pp easy.
