My friend and I were visiting the area on St. Patricks Day, so this seemed like the perfect place to have dinner. The special Irish food they served was delicious, staff was friendly, and I loved the way the pub was decorated. We will eat here again on our next visit.

Cape Charles during the off season on a Monday can be a bit on the limited side, but luckily it was prime rib night at Kelly's. Kelly's is a quaint neighborhood tavern/restaurant that manages to stay afloat no matter the season and for that, we as occasional visitors to the area are thankful. We came into town Monday afternoon and... More

My husband & I were bored coming back to the Eastern Shore (Maryland) from Virginia Beach area. Decided to drive thru Cape Charles as neither had been there in over a decade. So glad we did. Drove around town awhile, then decided to stop in Kelly's for a short break. Left 3 hours later. Just how a lazy Sunday afternoon... More

Great food, serving sizes are very large. Nice atmosphere. They need to put a light at their entrance at nighttime, as it can be pretty dark at the step going in (just a suggestion!). Good variety on the menu. The she-crab soup is awesome!!!

My wife and I stopped off on a trip up to Chincoteague. This was not our first choice, but it was off season, and our first choice was closed. Our disappointment did not last long. We shared a pound of steamed shrimp that were simply enormous, and tasted fantastic. We also had salads, which after the shrimp were not really... More

We travelled to Cape Charles in February and picked Kelly's for dinner the first night. The she crab soup was delightful, and the lamb burger cooked to perfection (rare for me). I took half of the sandwich home, and returned a couple of days later for the lemondrop cheesecake dessert. A little pricey at $7.50, but well worth is, especially... More

Went to dinner tonight to grab a quick beer and sandwich. The service was great and the food was great. However, I couldn't finish all my food and had to take the rest with me. I had to get out of there because the potent smell of cigarette/cigars was starting to waft through the air that was completely repugnant from... More

Good food especially the coconut cake. Have never had a complaint other than the bar which is a little slow but genial.

I went to Kelly's last night with my coworkers for the first time. I ordered the turkey panini with French fries. I was freshly prepared, very tasty, and the portions were generous. My only complaint was that the lighting where we were seated was too dim. Other than that, I enjoyed my experience!
