Just a great spot! Kelly - in spite of being a New Yorker - is a terrific guy. I almost got him to cheer for the Cubs as we watched 'em win the World Series at his bar. VERY good food at a reasonable price. Jim (I think that's right) pours a good drink. What more can you ask for... More

Pub atmosphere with good food. Busy and plenty of locals. Quite a wide menu with a lot of choices. Well worth a visit.

Not a lot of local seafood on menu. Oysters on half shell were good. Mussels in wine with jalepenos came with half not open. Lamb burger good. Crab cake not even up to average and served with a tomato slice with a big core. Poor showing. F fries were good. Craft beer selection ok; nothing special. Atmosphere was good. Nice... More

Good beer, generous pours of wine, prompt, friendly service and yummy food! The potato "tumbleweed" appetizer is particularly good. We had dinner there the night before Hurricane Matthew, and liked it so well we went back the next evening in spite of the wind and rain.

Funky little joint in the sweetest little town served up a wonderfully spicy bowl of drunken mussels to my man and the BEST she crab soup I have ever tasted, to me! We shared a YUUUGE fresh strawberry, spinach and goat cheese salad and then each tucked into a crab cake sandy. The mussels were nice and tender and very... More

Found this restaurant on Tripadvisor. Restaurants are somewhat limited in Cape Charles. Restaurant is located in an old bank building. We actually ate in the old vault which was cool. The server was very friendly and helpful. We had the prime rib special and the boneless braised ribs. Both were excellent. The She Crab soup was very good. Menu not... More

We happened upon Cape Charles and Kelly's purely by accident and I'm sure glad we did! Kelly's has a great ambiance and terrific service. Our server, La'Reisha went our of her way and by her own accord to check if what my son ordered would come cheaper if requested differently - and delivered to us the cheaper (still same volume)...

I have visited Kelly's several times in a previous life, but my fiancée had never been there. So on our second visit to Cape Charles I had to have her visit for dinner. It is a converted bank from the early 1900's and even the old vault is used for seating. That's where we sat and both ordered drinks. I... More

We had delicious burgers. Loved the one topped with crab meat. Sadly they had no oysters; they had not yet arrived. We also loved the homemade yukon gold chips.
