I can't speak for all the food they serve there, what i ordered was a fish dish in a fish restaurante that didn't look like fish, didn't taste like fish, it had a pasty consistency and no flavor, I would've not given it to my cats ( it was taken off the check). When walking in there the smell of... More

My friend and I visited this restaurant and loved the laid back and friendly atmosphere. We both tried the local special pompano. It was delicious! Go if you love fish cooked well and helpful, knowledgeable staff!

Nestled on the water by 5th Street across from Tin City where we had originally planned to dine, Kelly's was a pleasant surprise. We were not impressed by the menus at the Tin City restaurants, so decided to go across the bridge to Kelly's. Something about the sea gulls diving in front, and the quiet calm of its waterfront deck... More

Food authentic, fresh, delicious! Service attentive, a little slow. Quaint, casual & historic, built in 1952. Recommend!

We wanted a nice seafood dinner to cap off our vacation, but for the $80+ that we spent at this place, we could have gone to McDonalds and had a better meal. The soup was lukewarm, the 1/4 lb of steamed shrimp, which amounted to a total of 5, were hard to peel, tasted frozen and in a very strange... More

The food was good and the beer was cold. The location was convenient with where we were staying, and the menu was what we were looking for. Prices seemed a bit too high compared to other comparable restaurants which may have been why the dining room was not packed. If they brought the prices down about $2 per item, it... More

Kelly's has been around forever. Located on Naples Bay at Tin City. The food is good, but the menu is very limited, primarily (90%) seafood and fish. The prices are terribly high for the environment provided. It's outdated, in need of upgrades and repairs. The blond tongue and groove would look good in Alaska. The staff is quite nice though...

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.
