While the others at my table said they liked their dishes, I didn't like my combo dinner one bit. House salad had wet lettuce and one tablespoon of blue cheese dressing that tasted funny. Crab cake was gooey, indicating lots of filler. Shrimp scampi had four off-tasting shrimp swimming in a sea of oil. Mac and cheese was light on cheese flavor and about 1/5th as good as Stouffer's frozen. Stewed tomatoes was more like tomato gumbo (with chunks of celery for some reason). Chocolate mousse was some sort of phony whipped cream plus cocoa. I won't return.

This as my 4th or 5th trip to Kelly's. With each eperience the service and food gets worse. There were 3 adults and 1 (7yr. old child) in our party. The child was given a regular menu. Aftter 10 Minutes I requested a children's menu. One of us ordered the ribs and crabcake combo. Totally inedible. The ribs were pure gristle. INSTANT mashed potatoes. ? Why? also the potato salad was NOT good. Have learned now to not go there again but just wish that the owners would take the time to read some of these comments and do something about it.

I have been going to Kelly's for years. I have noticed a change over the last couple years. It's a shame. This was a landmark here in the northeast for years. I was going to take my sister for her 60th birthday. Thought maybe it was just me who thought things have changed. I guess not. I will find somewhere else. I wish the owners would just get a new chef or bring back the old one.

If nothing else, Kelly's is consistant. Lousy food & lousy servive. My wife & I went to Kelly's to satisfy her craving for seafood. Even though we're in our early 60's I think we were the youngest diners in the place. My wife's meal, other than a soggy salad was decent. Mine however, was awful. I ordered the sirloin steak & a baked potato w/butter. What I got was a slab of fat & gristle masquerading as steak & the tiniest baked potato I ever saw, with of course, no butter. I was almost finished by the time our air head waitress got around to bringing me some. It was the worst piece of steak I've ever had in a restaurant. When we were ready to leave air head waitress brings us someone else's check. We finally had to track her down to get the right check. You couldn't pay me to go back to Kelly's.

Well should have believed the previous reviews. Went her tonight and all was true, waited almost 45 minutes for food to show up and we got the all u can eat crab legs, they were tasteless and over cooked and rather small for 37$ we also were told when we asked about the wait on the crab legs that in order to request a refill on the crab legs our plate had to be cleared or down to a few legs. Took us hours to eat another one of us got a grilled chicken salad where the chicken was overlooked and hard. So dissapointed in this place definitely our first and last time. Go to hilltop crab house for good crabs and crab legs!

When my wife and I first moved up into the Northeast back in the mid 90's we simply LOVED Kelly's. After a couple of years we noticed changes, bad changes. The first was the poor quality of food. The lobster tails seemed to get smaller and smaller. The steak was a lower and lower quality. Next we noticed that the service was getting poor. Our waitresses would disappear into the back and we would lose track of them. Any time we needed something our waitress was mia. One time we waited 35 minutes just to pay our bill. The food itself became an issue when I ordered a blackened spicy salmon dish that was inedible. The fish was overcooked and over peppered. I asked the waitress if she could stomach it and she couldn't. I sent it back but was never offered a replacement dish. The final straw came when we spent nearly 3 hours in the restaurant. Most of that time was spent waiting, waiting for the waitress to place our order, waiting for the food to be cooked and to be served and finally waiting to pay our bill. The calamari I got was stuck together and rubbery. My wife's vegetables were overcooked and mushy. We have not been back in at least 5 years and have NO plans on returning.
