Krista, took great care of us during Happy Hour. It was my birthday and I received a beautifully decorated piece of Key Lime pie. It is one of the best I've had with Oreo crust. The pork nachos & Key Lime Margaritas were good too. Definitely stop by this hidden gem.

Nice outdoor seating with good service even though it was not to speedy but one should not be in a rush during vacation. The wheat beer was very tasty, the coconut shrimp appetizer was good to share. The seared tuna however was sub-par. Very thin and very over cooked.... Pet friendly place if you have a dog.

As far as deals go I would rate this as one of the top happy hours in key west. We tried out taste in all of the beers from the brewery all were very good favoriting the red ale. All happy hour appetizers are $6 which was awesome to try a few different things without running up the tab. Great... More

I heard Caribbean and wanted to try it. From the outside it looks like a quaint house. There is a sign outside informing visitors that this was originally the first office of the now defunct Pan Am Airlines. One member of our party is a pilot so his interest was piqued. We were guided through a bar area that at... More

A small group of us went to Kelly's for a celebration lunch. The service was extremely slow even though the place practically empty. Two of us ordered salads which came out well after everyone's fried lunches. The food looked like it had been tossed on the plate. I would not recommend this restaurant.

We go to Kelly's every year. The food used to be great. The last two times we were really disappointed. Nothing was fresh. It looked like every dish on our table of four went straight from the freezer to the oven to our plate. Too much good food in KW to come here until they get it fixed.

We've been to Kellys numerous times over the years to sit at the bar and always enjoyed the atmosphere. We went twice this trip and both times the atmosphere was less than average or fun. Not sure what's changed...

We always enjoy Kelly's, and when we in Key West, we always eat at Kelly's. If it's lunch, dinner, or just deserts we have never had a bad experience. Seating is casual in that you can sit a the bar in a covered area or sit in a garden sitting under the night sky.
