Never been before service was greats. We all tried different entrees and everything was ok.. The Beer was cold the Clam Chowder fantastic and the Onion Rings awesome... We will go back and try some different entrees next time.. Stay away from the baked potatoes if you go late.

“Once is enough”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

Based on Tripadvisor reviews we decided to try this restaurant. The place is pretty basic nothing special, the food was OK, my blackened fish was floating in way to much butter, the baked potato has dried out, there were 4 of us and nobody was impressed with their meals. The place is full of locals with everyone seeming to know each other. Our waitress was OK, but she was not very friendly, when she talked to some of the other patrons she was very friendly, to us she seemed to just tolerate. I guess if we were from the Northeast they would have fit in with the crowd.
We tried it once and I think that is enough for me, there are too many other good restaurants in the area.

“If I lived there, this would be one of my go to restaurants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

This is a small gem in Fort Lauderdale. Located on a corner of a strip mall, we ordered takeout based on the great Yelp! reviews and took it back to the Hyatt Hotel close by. We were very surprised at how delicious the food was -- my wife had the lobster roll and I had the fried oyster roll and they were both terrific. What was supposed to be just a quick sandwich & salad because we were too beat to go out to eat turned out to be one of the best meals we had in Fort Lauderdale. No matter what you order (and we recommend the seafood rolls), do NOT miss their key lime pie, which is to die for. If you love finding the little local hole in the walls that locals love and that serve honest and mouth watering food done right, you have to try Kelly's Landing -- it's almost guaranteed that you will come back. We certainly will.
