I would eat here quite often when I was on the road. Years ago, it was the place to go.....I love fried scallops and that was what I usually ordered. On one occasion the scallops were chewy amd tough. I stopped going there for years and I was working in Revere, {home of the original Kelly's} and figured I would... More

The roast beef sandwich is second-to-none! Been great for many years...1st time at this location, but have many visits to Revere Beach. Excellent fresh food, and very good portions. Really enjoyed the dine-in option, fast and organized.

Will never spend another dime at this restaurant. The Kelly's down the beach was unbeatable back in the 90s. SO WENT DOWNHILL since then. The fish is lousy, the prices are so high and the portions have been cut literally in half. They should be ashamed.

I have tried many hot roast beef sandwiches and by far it is the best one here at Kelly's. I love that the beef cooked just right, not too raw and not too dry, the bbq sauce is also very good too. There are plenty of seats, parking and very good service.

All locals know Kelly's & its long history - its gained its fame for great roast beef sandwiches, competing against great pizza & subs found almost anywhere in the greater Boston area. Since the hotel was close by I stopped at the Kelly's in Saugus & ordered roast beef, while my wife ordered the crab roll. Roast beef - still... More

I have often eaten at Kelly's in Saugus or Peabody and I usually like it. But yesterday was the exception. I ordered my usual roast beef on a gluten free roll, toasted, and a side of french fries (I sometimes get a small salad). The meal came quickly, but as I ate the sandwich it looked like the roll was... More

Yesterday, stopped by for lunch. Had the scallop/clam combo - $25 & change. A few scallops, less clams, some fries and 3 1/2 burnt onion rings. Not too tasty. Fortunately the clam chowder was still good.
