Kelly's Gingernut Pub is a lively bar on the main street in Cape Charles. It offers nice selection of micro brews, including several local ones. And based on the fish tacos I had, the food is excellent.

We visited Kelly's twice over our weekend trip and both experiences were good. They have a diverse menu, and a decent craft beer selection. The food and the service were on point.

It was a lovely warm evening and we wanted to dine outside. But they didn't want to serve us outside on their front patio as we didn't have a pet with us. Here's your one star review for such inflexibility and horrible service. Thank you...More
