Kelly's is a classic. The Roast Beef is always good, but their chicken fingers and fried clams are also worth a try. The drive-thru is convenient and usually open late.

Having grown up in NE I always try to get whole belly clams when I return to the area. I hate clam strips! I also look forward to a nice thick well breaded onion ring; detest those string onion things (put them back in the can). Well I understand why this restaurant puts Roast Beef in their name. My husband... More

Clams, clams, clams. I have been going to Kelly's on Revere Beach for 60 years. I am a huge fan. I had a clam plate, and enjoyed sitting inside rather than outside. It was fine. Big and expensive. But it just wasn't up to the original. The point is - if you are going to the world famous Kelly's, don't... More

Ordered the $23 lobster roll that came without lettuce and very little mayo. Stick with the original Kelly's on the beach as this place was terrible!

We really like this diner-type eatery. The roast beef wasn't our favorite (so rare it's still half alive), but we really enjoyed their seafood - especially the fried clams.It's close to AC Marriott Boston North Hotel, and it was a nice walk.

Your basic food fare but always seems a step up on the food scale for fast food. The addition of the shrimp was great

Food was made in a timely manner and was pretty ok was a lil greasy if you're into that kind of thing. Doesn't taste bad but didn't blow me away.

I wish we had a Kelly's on Long Island. The roast beef sandwiches were loaded and flavorful. If given a choice between going to Arby's or enjoying the taste of real roast beef, I will go to Kelly's every time.
