“The best Chowdah!!!!!”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 via mobile

The food at this restaurant was so good I had to go back twice the clam chowder is phenomenal! Definitely a must have. The food is exquisite everything was great during both visits the wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable regarding menu items and I even got to meet the manager. Highly recommend this restaurant for dinner in the Fort Lauderdale area. Fair warning there is always a line as this is a very popular restaurant for people visiting the area. But definitely worth the wait.

“Love this place!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Ate here several times during my stay. The food is good, fresh, and reasonably priced. Really good! Fell in love with the Ipswich clams. The scallops are to die for and these onion rings at every meal should be mandatory. Simple upper east coast sea shack food in Ft. Lauderdale. I can still taste it........

“Kelly time....”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Let me start with the food is good for what it is. Nothing fancy, just simple seafood. The place has a New England charm to it and seems to always have a lobster special. However the service, needs improvement. The hostess has been there for years and seems to think she can be rude to you because of that fact, She has that sense of entitlement because people are always waiting to get in. She needs a course in customer service and needs a better understanding of time. A 20 minute wait is much different than an hour and 15 minute wait, isn't that part of her job to understand the flow of customers and time management. However I must say that once we were seated the waitress was a delight and took real good care of us.

This place is not a sports bar and I see no reason why the TV should be on for 1 customer who then proceeds to be screaming at the TV because he can't control his emotions. This wasn't at the bar area, either. This isn't our 1st trip to Kelly's and I doubt it's our last but I would like to have a better experience the next time I do decide to go.

“Kelly's Does it Best”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

My friends and I love to go on Tuesday for twin Maine Lobster for $20. We always start off with a cup of Chowder (which has always been fantastic).
They have Great Beer on tap and great wines by the glass.

“A little bit of Beantown - now pass the Fenway Franks pal!”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

Kelly's is a nice replica of back home New England food. Chowda - fish - lobstah. A little pricey, but if you want to pretend you are back where Pats fans rule and Celtics fans are cryin' - go to Kelly's. It will make you feel better while the Sox play like crap this spring......Boston STRONG!
