We loved Kelly's so much we went two nights in a row! Every dish we had was wonderful! We took advantage of their daily specials and had some delicious lobster tails. When we return to the area, we will surely be going back.

My wife and I shared a couple of orders of bivalves. We started with New England clam chowder. Very tasty. Then on to scallops scampi. Also very good. Plenty of parking available. Not crowded when we stopped in for an early dinner.

About 50 feet north of Kelly's Landing is the Southport Raw Bar, which has what you are looking for. You can easily move from one to the other, and get the best of both.
