I went to school in Boston and their fried clams are the closest to New England fried IpswitchI have had in Florida. YUM! also love their scrod and several other dighes. Good beer too. If you go on a weekend, be prepared to wait a bit. n season (Thanksgiving to Easter) the waits are the longest, but I love the food and think the wait is worthwhile.

Nothing fancy or pretentious. ALWAYS great seafood, fresh and well prepared.

Have never been disappointed.

Polished off one more lobster tonight. Wonderful

It'd been two years since last visit, where three previous ones had been very rewarding experiences, but this is definitely my last! Either the supplier, the buyer or the cook have changed, probably all three in my opinion: yucky flour-laden clam chowder, chewy Connecticut lobster roll (with pitiful lobster portion size), so-so fries with OK-but-really-small fish'n chips, but steamers were fine (no cuisine involved nor talent required, clams are steamed and put in a plate, period!), all in all a far cry from previous standards that ensured consistently good fare...not any more!

If you're hungry for the salty atmosphere and sea shanty feel of a Cape Cod lobster shack, Kelly's is your place. Crowded most nights, Kelly offers specials and on Tuesdays their two-for-one lobster fills the place early. A very kind staffer promised to seat us one Monday after we failed to get in the previous week. The special that night, Florida stone crab, offered a plateful of eight carefully cracked, tasty crab claws. My husband opted for the lobster roll and was happily sated. Our waitress was immensely pleasant and helpful in guiding us thru the menu, albeit minus a Boston accent. Kelly's is a bit stingy on the fries. Plates of towering fried rings looked the better choice. While Kelly's can't totally replace a Chatham or Orleans lobster pot, it certainly satisfies the hunger for New England shellfish in South Florida.

Food lacks flavor and is overpriced. Chowder was good but not worth the suffering of the rest of this experience. Service is SLOW with orders being incomplete. Their was some old lady who probably is the owner and was so very rude to this other table, hard to think they are in restaraunt biz. Many other options in the area. SKIP IT!
