Visiting town and this looks like part of a fun local chain. Service was very nice. Food was just ok. Had the feeling it should be on one of those Food Network shows where some expert comes in and cuts the menu by 75%. Too many items, nothing really done "well". Better than a national chain, but nothing to write... More

Kelly's is a classic. The Roast Beef is always good, but their chicken fingers and fried clams are also worth a try. The drive-thru is convenient and usually open late.

Having grown up in NE I always try to get whole belly clams when I return to the area. I hate clam strips! I also look forward to a nice thick well breaded onion ring; detest those string onion things (put them back in the can). Well I understand why this restaurant puts Roast Beef in their name. My husband... More

Clams, clams, clams. I have been going to Kelly's on Revere Beach for 60 years. I am a huge fan. I had a clam plate, and enjoyed sitting inside rather than outside. It was fine. Big and expensive. But it just wasn't up to the original. The point is - if you are going to the world famous Kelly's, don't... More

Ordered the $23 lobster roll that came without lettuce and very little mayo. Stick with the original Kelly's on the beach as this place was terrible!

We really like this diner-type eatery. The roast beef wasn't our favorite (so rare it's still half alive), but we really enjoyed their seafood - especially the fried clams.It's close to AC Marriott Boston North Hotel, and it was a nice walk.

Your basic food fare but always seems a step up on the food scale for fast food. The addition of the shrimp was great
