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.

This restaurant came highly recommended so we had to try it.
The atmosphere was great, we sat outside on the water looking at cruise boats and other decorated restaurants at night. The table was cute with a glass top with sea shells and sand underneath. Now the food was just ok, we both had fish, grouper and maki. Nothing special.
So make the choice for food or atmosphere.

Kelly's is a must when in Naples. Great food, service, Hallowe'en decorations, beautiful shell displays on the glass top tables. We love that it is a standby where everything is consistently top rate. Never a disappointment.

Kelly's used to be a premier place for seafood in Naples, as a Naples native, it was a rare treat to go to Kelly's as a kid and young adult. However, in the two times I have been as an adult the food was of average quality and over priced. It has turned into a bit of a tourist trap, fun for an out of towners dinner near the water but not premium quality service or food. The tables are glass with sand and shell inside and the entire restaurant has an Old Florida feel, unfortunately on my last visit I noted an Old Florida smell as well and I can't foresee a circumstance where I would visit again.

If you are looking for a touch of how Naples use to be years ago you have to eat at Kelly's Fish House. The view of the water is great the glass top tables still display sea shells from years ago.
We love the fried shrimp dinner but there are many great choices at Kelly's. During stone crab season you can eat fresh stone crabs brought in by their own boats.

Very dated, but classic looking fish house overlooking a little bit of the Naples Docks. This place has been here a long time and it shows. the food is average, nothing special, but it was fresh. the hush puppies were excellent but they should not be the reason to go to a restaurant. All in all, we will keep looking for the best place to have fish in the Naples area.
