Good, but service is off
We ate a late (1pm) lunch at Kelly's on a beautiful Monday in November, and the weather was conducive to sitting outside. We appreciated the chance to keep our distance from others, but I think those who opt to sit outside tend to get forgotten,...or at least the young man serving us seemed to do so. We both started with the she cr ... read more

The food was really good, it's a super cool place with an atmosphere about it that made me dig the place. But the service was not very good. Probably just an off day for them. The food made up for it for the most part.

Ordered the cod sandwich with fries and it hot the spot!  Awesome staff.  Adhered to the social distancing by having signs on tables that were not available.  Beer was delicious!  Try the Sycamore Mountain Candy American IPA!  Deliciously refreshing!

Only place open it seemed on this Monday night. Fortunately, they did have a handicapped entrance for my 93 year old parents! Food was excellent, and service was just fine. And, plenty of leftovers for lunch tomorrow!

Amazing place. Great find. Great food. Love the history of building. Will return.

Excellent. Food and service was fantastic. Beautiful old building that has been renovated, and still has the feel of an old building from the early 1900's. A must go to place for a bite to eat, and just relax.

Just okay
The onion rings were very good! Crab cake sandwich is full of crab and light on filler. While the sandwich was good, the sauce that came with it was NOT! I opted for a squeeze of lemon. We tried the She Crab soup but it...was cold and not very good.More ... read more

Very good food in a former bank location! Dine in the vault! My husband LOVED the Roast Turkey Panini. I enjoyed the house salad with grilled chicken. Very fresh. The veggie of the day was sauteed Brussels Sprouts. Delish! Good service and good food! We've visited many times, and will go again!

Stopped here on our way to the Outer Banks on a beautiful September day mid week. Pleasant seating outdoors within a short distance of the bay. Food was very good despite the great number of flies around. We sampled the turkey panini and lamb burger with the panini being large enough for  doggie bag for later. Would highly recommend ... read more

Everything must have been done by the pixies—the food, an actual backfin crabcake sandwich called “Crab Cake Sandy” on the menu, was a perfect match for the draft Guiness Stout. The Southern touch was added by the end-of-season flies (indoors and out), but what can ya do? It’s Virginny!

Delicious Food!
It’s September of 2020 so we went to Kelly’s because we could eat outside, however the flies were terrible on this night. We had read this in another reviews but decided to take our chances. We ordered but decided to change to take out. Glad...we did this and not simply go elsewhere because the food was delicious and the server ... read more

Fish Tacos and Smithwicks
We were advised to dine inside because of a fly problem outside and after reading the most recent reviews, I'm glad we took the advice. Kelly's had a cool vibe inside with a nice bar area. Tables were spread out nicely due to COVID regulations...and we managed to get a table inside what appeared to be an old bank vault. The fish t ... read more

Glad we stopped here, but the flies were off the charts, inside and outside.
First, we went into Tim's and it looked ominous, so we left and ended up at Kelly's. Super glad we did. We ended up sitting outside, and they warned us the flies were bad outside, but, what they didn't think we realized, is that the...More ... read more

The restaurant is set in an old bank building so the atmosphere is full of character. I had the She Crab Soup and it was DELICIOUS! The Caesar salad was excellent as well. Great staff, great atmosphere, great food! We will definitely go back!

I was pleasantly surprised.  The service and the food were really good.  The only reason that I didn't give 5 stars was cleanliness.  The table was sticky and the menus.  The atmosphere is cool, the building was originally a bank built in the early 1900s.  I would go back though and would recommend.  Menu is Irish Pub with some good ... read more

My wife and I have been here many times and always had a positive experience. Unfortunately we can’t say that about our last visit on July 19th.

Outdoor seating with social distancing
In these times, the ability to eat outside is almost more important than the food itself. She crab soup was good. Adult grilled cheese was also good. My husband liked the shepherds pie. It was all fine just nothing you’ll ever remember. Staff were friendly.
