Description: Kelly's Fish House Dining Room has been a tradition since 1953 and is proud to be the oldest seafood restaurant in Naples. Their food is simply prepared and great tasting. This family-owned restaurant is directly beside the Gordon River Bridge, cozily nestled on the east bank, an easy drive from anywhere in town. The casual Old Florida interior with warm cypress walls, knotty pine ceiling and many local commercial fishing artifacts give you a nice down-home feeling. The huge windows afford a great view of the Gordon River. You'll want to try Capt. Hooch's Sand Bar Lounge. This is the perfect place to be on a balmy evening, while enjoying the gentle breezes and watching the boats. Local fishermen tie their boats next to the Combs Fish Company building, the last working fish house in Naples.

“AVOID AT ALL COSTS !!!!!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

This place is way expensive and offers very poor value for money. The courses came at different times, the salad is something I wouldn't give to my pet rabbit and after the waitress joking and knowing full well that I didn't like sea food, she forgot to mention the salad was saturated in anchovy vinegarette!!! The fries were cold and anaemic and like something you might expect from McDonald's. The final bill was $90 for 2 beers, one glass of wine, one starter and 2 main meals. We have never felt so ripped off in our lives. The atmosphere in the place was non existent and anyone thinking about coming here should go across the water to pinchers crab shack. Gutted we ever went in the first place.

“Great seafood, view and you feel like a local.”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Kelly's (opened 1952) was a must eat again spot for me in my Naples visit. Both dinners exceeded my expectations. My only complaint was; they aren't open for lunch.
How's this for value? 1lb. lobster, two huge grilled shrimp, likewise mussels. Served with roasted potatoes, corn, choice of slaw or salad ($21 dollars). Highly recommend this spot for waterfront dining.

“Better seafood restaurants abound in Naples.”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

Menu seemed limited. Service was slow and forgetful. Waited far too long for our check at the end of the meal. The food itself was good, but not great. The ambiance was cheerful and old fashioned. The service and the menu were the big problems for us.

“HORRIBLE! Complete waste of money, feel sorry for the waitress staff because the food is absolutely terrible!!!”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Oyster soup was boiled water with overdone oysters. Pompano (the special) was on a small diner plate withZERO seasoning and was either steamed or microwave cooked. Baked potatoe was NOT baked, straight out of microwave, dish also came with 6 green bean! First time I've ever left lobster on my ate. Disgusting. Had a "boil" that had NO seasoning on lobster, clams, shrimp, red potatoes. Would have at least expected it on shrimp and potatoes. Served a plastic cup of margarine for potatoe. Even the crackers for the (still ice frozen) raw oysters were bad. Very sad, bad experience, not even an offer for a discount when the pompano had 2 bites eaten! Appetizer and 2 entrees came to $90. (I did get a refund on the oyster stew). I should have known something was wrong since the parking lot was empty but I assumed it was out of season and it was a Sunday. I've never said this about a restaraunt but they should really be closed down. So bad, I don't think it could have just been a "bad night". What a waste of $, I felt dirty when I left!
