We came to Boston with a school field trip and needed a restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. Another restaurant recommended that we come here because of our students. We did not call ahead, but the staff set tables for 15 on the fly. The food came out hot and quickly. The kids loved the chicken fingers, fries, and... More

When I'm in the Boston area, I always hit Kelly's. Their stuffed pepper is amazing. The staff is very friendly, place is clean, and atmosphere is a blast. If you're looking for a good time, and great food, this is the place.

Stopped here coming from Winthrop Beach where we couldn't find any fun beach restaurants. I only gave it a 4 because it's not a great neighborhood. The bartender was fun, the beer is cold and the food was great. We had fish and chips. Glad we stopped there.

Recommended by a friend who used to live in the neighborhood. Fun, ethnically diverse East Boston neighborhood, lots of locals in restaurant/bar, very welcoming, historical boxing pictures, great waitress, good food at great price - 5 minutes from Logan.

You go to a place over and over because the food is good. You enjoy going because of the people there. Kelly's has both. The bartenders and wait staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The food is right out of Nana's kitchen (if you grew up in an Italian family you'll understand). It's not hip, trendy or stylish. It's just good,... More

It was recommended that we go to Kelly's for a drink while waiting for our reservation at Rino's. After settling in at the bar and after two hours and hearing from others at Kelly's that our reservation was going to take longer, we decided to eat there. We were so impressed with the quality of the food. My wife had... More

My friend and I stopped here for lunch the 1st day we were in Boston to run in the Boston Marathon. The people and food treated us like we were regulars. We actually came back 2 other times for lunch during our visit and by the time we left we felt like family. The food and service were great and... More

Eat in or Take out- either way you get a great meal. I had planned on having take out somewhere else put unfortunately my choices either didn't take credit cards or didn't deliver- Kelly's Square Pub does. This was so very convenient but not only convenient but it was delicious and a great deal. We ordered gnocchi and meatballs, ravioli... More

Flying out of Logan, we hit up this place for dinner. When parking and walking, the neighborhood looked pretty shady. But this place was cozy, nice enough. Had pizza and calzones, both of which were great. The waitress could not have been nicer or more accommodating. A close ride from our hotel at the airport, definitely worth checking out for... More
