This was the last night of our holiday and we wanted to finish with a good meal. Kelly’s did not disappoint. The food was great and the service was fast and pleasant.

I came here for dinner this week, with my wife and daughter. My daughter had steak and chips (which was fine). My wife had duck which she said was delicious. I chose the home cooked lasagne - which was the strangest that I have ever...had. There was no sauce in it, at all. Layers of dry mince, pasta and cheese sauce. It was home-cooked (as described) - but was absolutely tasteless. On reflection, I probably should have sent it back, but I was so hungry that I ate it all. So, stick to the duck or the steak. (Parking was also a challenge - make sure that you park at the front of the restaurant).More

The quality of the ingredients was noticeably good and it’s nice to know they use a lot of local produce. The servings were generous. Wine list was small and not very impressive looking but the wine we selected ended up being very nice. Staff were...pleasant. Dessert was the highlight of the meal with the sticky date pudding, lamington cheesecake, and apple and fig crumble all going down extremely well.More

Where to start? We were originally booked at another restaurant until we read the reviews for KBR (average 4.5) so we changed the booking to KBR. This was also influenced by the online menu and its heavy emphasis on the use of local produce, and...other products. great we thought - excellent to see that. Decor: old school as another reviewer pointed out and we are fine with that. Staff: friendly but definitely in need of far more and better training before handling floor duties. Our waitress admitted to only being there a few days and was really unsure of what to do. This is in no way her fault or issue. This is a management issue and needs to be resolved with new staff and recurrent training for all staff. There is absolutely no excuse for management to allow its staff to deal with the paying customers without proper training. Food: absolutely disappointing. We ordered Seafood Gumbo and the Crispy Skin Duck. The Gumbo was grey and swimming in grey goo. The presentation was a confused mass of some things cooked and others overcooked. Some were also suspiciously cold. As for the Duck it gave up it's life unnecessarily. Tough and bland and swimming in an overpowering cherry something sauce. If KBR claim to be representing local producers then those producers have the right to be represented with integrity and honesty, which we did not experience. We have no hesitation paying for quality food however the 100 dollar plus tab was a little hard to digest - a bit like the duck - especially to be told when paying "most people think we are cheap." From our experience last Tuesday evening, it might be time for a Gordon Ramsey visit.More

This restaurant was absolutely fantastic. The only thing better than the great service, by the friendly staff, was the FOOD! Although it was difficult to choose from the extensive menu, I love duck, & the duck was truly the best duck i have ever had....The macadamia chocolate cheesecake was the perfect way to finish a beatiful meal. I highly recommend this restaurant to anybody who enjoys fine food & friendly service in a nice environment.More

We stayed at Kelly's Beach Resort for a low key family holiday. Our last evening was spent dining at the resort's restaurant, KBR's Restaurant. An intimate venue, with a delightful, old school vibe. Think excellent, no pretentious service, and generous portions. The food was delicious....Great seafood options include seafood gumbo and the best surf n turf I have ever eaten. Kids' menu is available. So enjoyable and highly recommended.More
