Good service, good shrimp. Limited menu choices. We were pleased with our selection. We would visit again. The interior is small and the pub serves as a small sports bar.

Stopped in to see what this pub was all about. Had a great variety of beers on tap. I wanted to sample them all but there was to many. We tested a few and had some great food.

I love the reuben sandwich at Kelly's but also all the tap beers they have on draft. Overall superb bar food about 1 block to the beach. Definitely a hot spot after 12 midnight on south padre island.
