319 Main St
The fact that it has been in business for 25 years says it all. Not only is Kelly's a good, fun and trendy restaurant, serving local favorites like pan seared grouper and smoked fish spread. The menu always has something unique and interesting on it to try like stilton and fig naan flatbread. And you haven't had grilled cheese until you've had their grilled brie sandwich. It's open for breakfast lunch and dinner. Make a reservation if your going for dinner during high season. Sometimes staff can be quirky but worth it for the fun factor,
Not only a good restaurant, Kelly's owns the Chica-Boom-Room lounge and patio bar next door. How convenient is that??? When you're finished with dinner amble on out to the patio bar for expertly made drinks like chocolate martinis, mexican wankers or a pink and perky! Happy hour all day and night on Sundays and different events throughout the week like jazz on the patio, book trivia, line dancing and live music keep things interesting.
Ready for more? Attached to the Chica-Boom-Room they also own they Blur nightclub. You can spend the rest of the night dancing to some of the area's top DJs and local bands.
All this in one location, less than 2 miles away. There were nights (in my younger and more depraved years) that I stumbled the 2 miles home and went back for my car in the morning. Thankfully nowadays we have Uber.
