Delicious lunch provided for us weary shoppers. We were able to sit outside and the waiter was extremely personable and clued us in on an upcoming soft serve ice cream shop. Great beer selection, well rounded menu for those who just want a snack and those who need a more hearty meal.

We had fish tacos, she crab soup and a crab burger. Alex our server took care of us and our pup. We loved the food, the service and the building was an old bank with tons of character. We ate outside but went in several times to take pictures.

Stopped in for lunch we ate outside even though it was chilly. The service was quick and friendly -- the food was excellent. It looks like a great place to spend an evening but we ran out of time. We'll be back.

We enjoyed dinner at Kelly's. We sat at the bar and had yummy Shepherd's Pie served by our very gracious bartender Chris. The ambience at Kelly's was mellow and relaxing. Not at all noisy. It was a very short walk back to Hotel Cape Charles and a good time was had by all. :-) We will return!

Went here for lunch a few times and dinner. Great food, great atmosphere, great Irish humor, and a very short walk from the beach. Upon entering the tavern you instantly feel welcomed and nothing you need is an inconvenience for the wait staff or the tavern crew. Would definitely go back again!

Excellent savory comfort foods and the wings are memorable. The environment of Kelly's in a restored bank make it a place not to miss in Cape Charles.

My friend and I were visiting the area on St. Patricks Day, so this seemed like the perfect place to have dinner. The special Irish food they served was delicious, staff was friendly, and I loved the way the pub was decorated. We will eat here again on our next visit.
