My wife and I were staying at the Embassy Suites in Ft. Lauderdale at the end of February 2017. Not wishing to spend too much time at the hotel dealing with the mob scene at the complimentary happy hour we walked a couple streets over to Kelly's Landing. The reviews were great - and I know why! A good number... More

Kelly's is a busy New England style seafood restaurant that is a mainstay for locals around SE. 17th St. The prices are reasonable and the fish always fresh

The lobster tails were gray to black looking and had to be sent back, after waiting over an hour for them. The Ipswich clams looked more like strips than whole bellies and were too highly breaded. The waitress was ok but overwhelmed by the crowd. The whole lobsters were very hard to get out of their shells. Didn't think anything... More

This place is so delicious and the staff is so friendly. Every time we go on a cruise we stay at a hotel near Kelly's Landing so we can go there for dinner. We're from the Wahsington D.C. area, so we know seafood.

Coming from Boston and being a stickler on good clam chowder I have to say Kelly's clam chowder is the best I've had...ever! That night they had an haddock special that was also "wicked" good!

If you like Ipswich clams, this is your place. We moved to Fort Lauderdale from the Boston area. I have been looking for a place that sells good fried clam strips. Yes, I am a wimp - I can't eat the whole clams. It is a texture thing with the bellies. A friend recommended Kelly's Landing. I am grateful. I... More

This place has the best new England clam chowder around as well as other seafood dishes. The restaurant is small and there may be a wait time....but it is worth the wait.

In Ft. Lauderdale overnight before boarding a cruise ship the next morning and I asked Trip Advisor what a good seafood restaurant is and they weren't wrong with Kelly's Landing. We had seven in our party so I called around five and they said come around seven for a seven-thirty seating. They don't take reservations and the place is cozy... More

You dont come here for the views, but when the place is packed at 5:30 you know its the food and atmosphere. I had the fried shrimp and oysters. It wad good. I would ask the next time to have the oysters cooked more, but that's a personal preference.

I've eaten here for lunches, but this was my first dinner at Kelly's Landing. What took me so long? I took a friend from out of town there. We got there around 6:10, and had a 1 hour wait. My friend didn't want to wait that long, so we walked to another place for some beers and an appetizer. By... More
