This place has all the makings to be a great restaurant - outdoor seating with great lights, cool bar, nice location; however, despite these things, don't waste your time. The service is terrible...TERRIBLE. We were seated right away but then it took 20 minutes for someone to even acknowledge us. Once we received our water, we had to track down... More

Why is this place still in business? It's a lovely, convenient location, but the food is average at best (conch fritters were nothing but breading), and the beer selection is the usual mass-produced factory brews you find any where. They had ONE supposedly house-brewed beer on tap. There are many many good restaurants and bars in Key West. Don't waste... More

Kelly's has always been a favorite of ours in Key West. Apparently it has changed hands and our visit this week did not meet expectations. Setting is lovely as always, but the food was somewhat bland and lacked imagination. Service was attentive and fine. Maybe it needs to change hands again.

We didn't care for the Shrimp Tempura but everything else was super. KRISTEN WAS A GREAT SERVER! It was my first visit but won't be my... More

Lunch is served in an outdoor courtyard, very peaceful and quiet. Try a beer from their Brewery, you won't regret it.

Roaming around Key West trying to experience the taste of the local breweries. Kelly's made 3, the wheat beer couldn't come close to say Bell's Oberon, the red beer was a bit better and they were out of the IPA. The service was very good. Not sure about the food because I didn't eat there. I would come back just... More

Just off Duval on Caroline Street, this spot is both convenient and less hectic than nearby Duval Street spots. Located in building where Pan Am airline was founded. Have expanded to do more food plus an on site microbrewery. Stopped by twice in three days, once for drive nose and once for lunch. Service was both friendly and accommodating. Food... More

Nice courtyard, but smelled of paint the day we were there. I thought the conch fritters were poor, but the conch soup was ok. My wife had a chicken bacon sandwich that was nice. Yes she did give me a piece.
