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.

Last week we were vacationing with our family in Naples. We tried a new restaurant each night. Upon arrival we noticed the restaurant was not busy (this should have been a warning) but being low season we thought perhaps it was just a slow night. When our server finally approached us for our drink order she asked our 22 year old son for his ID (as she should have) and he promptly produced it. She looked at it and took it with her to the bar. Our son had ordered a beer. After a very long wait she returned and smugly said to our son "I brought you a water since you are not 21! We don't serve underage here!" We initially thought she was kidding around with him. Upon questioning her further she repeatedly said he was not over 21! We laughed good naturedly initially that he was indeed 22 and as his parents we should know. His drivers license clearly proves he is 22 years old. She then quite sarcastically and again smugly took his license to her manager who along with the hostess (have no idea how she got this job as she was very unfriendly) had to use a calculator to come to the conclusion that our son was indeed 22! At this point we decided to leave. At that point another waitress accidently bumped into our son causing her to drop her tray of water glasses. What a disaster of an evening. We promptly left and had a fantastic dinner at The Dock and our son had no problem getting drink order.

We arrived during happy hour. We taken directly to a table that the waitress said was one of the best...it was. We had a great view of the Gordon River and Riverwalk. The four of us had no trouble with the view.

The food was excellent and at Naples prices were within the norm. The lobster pot is excellent for $19.95. The fried oysters are excellent.

We will visit this restaurant again.

one of our regular "good seafood" restaurants. Never are dissatisfied. Price is a factor. Love the snapper, salads, bar, and local catch!

I'm sorry but eat over the water tin city.
Compressed food,not fresh but frozen.For Florida I expect at least fresh fish the server even admitted it was frozen.
Don't waste a good evening out here.
