I'm not big on the fried foods at Kelly's (and there's a lot of it). That having been said, I LOVE the lobster roll. It's always fresh, bursting with flavor, and enormous. It's made very simply, with a bit of mayo and celery. It's really the best I've ever had. In addition, they make a great tuna roll (a bit... More

Great place full of true Boston men behind the counter. We had popcorn shrimp with home made Cajun dip and a side of onion rings and fries home made tarter sauce was yummy

My brother and I visited after 20 years. No doubt - this venerable dine-with-the-pigeons-overlooking-the-beach place is still the best around. They still have, by far, the best fried clams and lobster roll in the area. The lobster roll is expensive but totally worth it.

A true North Shore landmark, with the original and incredible Roast Beef Sandwich, super fresh and excellent fried seafood platters, and clammy delicious clam chowder. I can't be within 59 miles of the place without aa run to Kelly's! Comfort food for this former Bostonian. Best friend clams around!

Lines are long, service is slow, and food is average at best. Pretty much the McDonalds of roast beef joints when it comes to food quality.

We finally found this little gem while out looking for a place to eat that actually had a little parking that wouldn't cost an arm or leg. Great prices and even better food. Staff was very friendly and service was fast. We would definitely stop here again if in the area.

A key part of the Revere Beach experience, is heading across the street to get your Kelly's. Be it roast beef, which they're famous for and which was a heaping sandwich, or maybe a fish sandwich, which was a large (!) piece of fried fish, you'll be happy. Cross the street and you'll be able to chew and enjoy the... More

Now, .....I know I am from Montana so why should I have an opinion.... Well along time ago I lived in Boston going to school, and since my graduation, I have returned 23 out of 25 years to the area. Twice I came back three times in one year. I'm a dentist so I really don't travel to work. Each... More

Always fast and good value for the money. Take your food across to Revere Beach but don't feed the sea gulls. They like Kelly's too.
