My wife and I stopped off on a trip up to Chincoteague. This was not our first choice, but it was off season, and our first choice was closed. Our disappointment did not last long. We shared a pound of steamed shrimp that were simply enormous, and tasted fantastic. We also had salads, which after the shrimp were not really... More

We travelled to Cape Charles in February and picked Kelly's for dinner the first night. The she crab soup was delightful, and the lamb burger cooked to perfection (rare for me). I took half of the sandwich home, and returned a couple of days later for the lemondrop cheesecake dessert. A little pricey at $7.50, but well worth is, especially... More

Went to dinner tonight to grab a quick beer and sandwich. The service was great and the food was great. However, I couldn't finish all my food and had to take the rest with me. I had to get out of there because the potent smell of cigarette/cigars was starting to waft through the air that was completely repugnant from... More

Good food especially the coconut cake. Have never had a complaint other than the bar which is a little slow but genial.

I went to Kelly's last night with my coworkers for the first time. I ordered the turkey panini with French fries. I was freshly prepared, very tasty, and the portions were generous. My only complaint was that the lighting where we were seated was too dim. Other than that, I enjoyed my experience!

I'll start with the ambiance because that's what I love most. The building is beautiful, inside and out...built in 1907 as a bank during the highpoint of American craftsmanship, now restored and converted into the coolest restaurant ever. I would call the architecture "red brick Greek Revival" with some very clever but respectful modifications. Take the time to inspect the... More

Had an amazing dinner ! The food portion was just right and the food itself was amazing! Not fancy at all, casual dining. The dining room is in the old bank vault which was very cool!

Four of us took an impromptu Girl's weekend in Cape Charles for New Years. Everything about the trip was perfect and we fell in love with the town. Spending New Years at Kelly's could not have been better. We had no idea what to expect, but were open to any experience. WE WERE BLOWN AWAY. We went in for an... More

I have been to the Gingernut Pub more than a few time and have always had a blast with the owner, Gene and his local friends. My girlfriend, Chrissy and I make it a point to stop in to Cape Charles whenever we are down that way just to see Gene. My food and service experience has always been great... More
