The food is usually good tasting but overly greasy, came by boat several times and by car others. While the food tasted good most of the time the service was marginal most of the time, as someone else said no one greets you except to...More

I had the pleasure to take my friend to breakfast at Kelly's the other day. Great breakfast as usual, the owner Albert Kelly came out to our table and served us personally. Great food and a great price. We will definitely be back.

Got the meat lovers omelette and it was awesome! Got a little pricey with toast and home fries (13.25!!) but it was honestly an excellent omelette. Place is a bit sketchy inside but I'd go back to pay that omelette again! Plus they had hot...More

Stopped in for dinner, food was good, service good, beer cold, & a pleasent overall visit. However I am sure it would be a lot nicer in the summer sitting out by the water.
