“Not what we expected. :(”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2013 via mobile

We expected some great food at this restraunt but all we got was slow service and some of the food was mediocre but most of the food was good. We ordered are entreé and it took an hour for us to get our entreé. Then it took another hour for us to get our main course. They was only one waitress and two people in the kitchen.

“Delicious pulled pork torta!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

I loved the small quiet place for lunch. Selection was good and the salad was bright and tasty, a great counterpoint to the spicy sandwich.

“Nice view and delicious food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

This was our second visit to Kelly's with two years in between and somehow the waiter recognized us, which was nice. Small, cute and relaxing, we seated ourselves by the window and took advantage of the binoculars to spy on various species of birds. The seats are almost like lounge chairs in their cushioning and it was very easy to sink into one and not want to leave. We ordered Bloody Mary's and although mine was fine, my husband needs his spicy and the waiter was very accommodating in bringing over various hot sauces to up the heat in his. I had the pork torta with a salad and my husband ordered the crab and mac with chowder. Everything tasted fresh and delicious and the portion size was perfect. There is enough variety on the menu to keep everybody happy. We will be back (again) and would recommend this to anyone visiting Florence.

“Seafood Chowder...delish!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

We had a wonderful lunch at Kelly's Cantina 4/22/13. It had a warm atmosphere and the service was excellent. We are still talking about the delicious seafood chowder. It's hard to find a chowder as fresh and flavorful as Kelly's. The crab cake sandwich was perfect. Even though we are from Colorado, we plan to get back to the Oregon coast in the near future, and Kelly's will be on our list of "must-do's".
