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.

I apologize that the food did not meet your expectations on your recent visits. We take pride in the fact that all of our food is fresh and made from scratch in-house. Please give us another chance next time you are in town - just ask for Jason or Chuck. More

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.

We stopped for lunch while visting on our cruise. Service was fair. Food was very good but a bit pricey. We had a Cuben sandwich $12, a grilled shrimp ceasar salad $18 and a Key West margarita $8.

They must use one side for lunch and the nicer, more formal area for dinners. My wife and I had lunch there a few days ago and the food wasn't bad, I just expected more. The atmosphere was tired and could easily have been decorated a little better. The waitress was great. No complaints. Maybe I was just underwhelmed by... More

If you're a fan of Top Gun, then it's hard to not stop at Kelly's. The menu offers bar fare to full entrees, but it's recommended to invest in your drinks and skip on the bites. The beer cheese dip was tasty served with warm pretzels, but both the Caesar salad and the coconut shrimp were a bit lackluster. Nice... More

Our family (included 2 teenagers) of 7 had dinner at the Kelly's Caribbean Bar. The weather was cooperating that night so we were able to dine outside. The server was wonderful an the meal was excellent. Everyone in our party enjoyed the dinner.

This place was recommended to us by a local. We were a bit disappointed. The wings were only ok because the coating was very wet and sloppy. We ordered the cheese dip because it said it came with pretzel bread. Instead, it came with greasy tortilla chips. We asked the waiter about that and he said they were out of... More
