Though everything I have had here was good, the fish and chips stand out and the pancakes are out of this world. Come to think of it, I really don't know how they can make a pancake that is so much better than the rest, inconceivable!

This is a small, local cafe which offers a very good breakfast. They also have lunch and dinner, but I have not tried those. The omelettes are large and the hash browns are delicious. Love their coffee - it's rich and dark, not "old people's" coffee!

We went to Kelly's both mornings that we were in Gig Harbor. The staff was friendly and had hot coffee in hand when you came in the door. They had both booths and tables. One large table was filled with gentlemen that obviously meet in the am to coffee and chatting. The food was very good and the prices reasonable.... More

Lots of locals here, in addition to boaters and tourists, so we figured it was worth a visit. We had a fantastic breakfast of Green Eggs and Ham (you'll love this if you're a pesto fan!) and the Corned Beef Hash! I'm a tea drinker so I'll note here they have a diverse selection of high end teas in addition... More

I couldn't believe how tasty Kelly's ones. Low key diner with superbly friendly staff. We ate there twice, amazing omelette, crab cakes and burger. We plan to return again real soon. Big favorite, not just for their friendly staff or deelish baked goods but also because they have comfort food (fish n chips!) without using cheap ingredients!!

This is the quintessential "Gig Harbor" restaurant with delicious food, a great ice cream counter, and terrific service, surrounded by locals. We eat there often. Kelly's is noted for wonderful breakfasts too. A cool thing to remember is that kid's are free on Tuesdays!

Last night we had the Thursday night prime rib dinner here. It is always consistently good. The prices are good and the staff are very friendly. I have eaten breakfast, lunch, dinner and an occasional cup of coffee. My only complaint is the noise level. It can be deafening when they are busy.

Stopped here for a quick bite not expecting anything exciting and oh wow we were wrong! Some of the best fish and chips I've ever had. Also serve beer and ice cream and cookies. Lemon meringue pie ice cream and praline pecan are to die for.

My friend talked me into popping in here for food. Said he had been before and it was great....umm, not so sure. Yes, it looks mom and pop and the food is the same, but guess what? It was yummy. I wanted to go back , but we ran out of time.
