“You'll Feel Like You're in Ireland!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

We eat at May Kelly's whenever we're in the area. The portions are huge, the food delicious and the decor makes you feel like you're in an pub in Ireland, not NH. They were having an informal Irish music session in the bar area when we were there this time, which just added to the authentic feel of being in Ireland. Great, great place!!

“Simply Outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

Delicious Irish Fare in a great atmosphere. The fish n' chips was the best I have had anywhere and the corned beef & cabbage was outstanding. Service was good and server was also attentive to our 4 yr old son. The only complaint I have is the temperature in the restaurant was too hot.

“WOW !!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2012 via mobile

We were vacationing from Florida, and found Mae's from our Hotel friends. What a dinner we had. We went on two for one Thursday's, I had the Haddock, which was wonderful, my wife had the stuffed Chicken, she loved it. The bread is fabulous, ask for seconds !! We both had the Cheesecake, we did not walk out, we waddled out !! Chelsea was our waitress, she is very attentive, and very nice. We love the North Conway area, and love Mom & Pop places, slow down while traveling and find the jewels like Mae Kelly's !!!
