Kelly’s Landing (Fort Lauderdale)

Posted on May 24th, 2011 · American Fort Lauderdale Seafood


***** Kelly’s Landing, 1305 Southeast 17th Street, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33316, (954) 760-7009.

Got an absolutely terrific casual-seafood joint for you…Kelly’s Landing in Fort Lauderdale.

You can check menu/prices at

Kelly’s Landing has been around for something like 25 years. Best way to describe its decor–almost looks like a neighborhood Irish pub. Your tee shirt/shorts ensemble will definitely work here. Kelly’s is located in a nondescript strip shopping center- so don’t plan on watching boats while you eat on its outdoor patio.

Just so we are straight, this is a seafood restaurant…but the landlubber or allergic crowd will find enough chicken/meat dishes so nobody’s gonna go home hungry.

I really enjoyed Kelly’s. A recent dinner had me “trying”—crab cake (appetizer-$7), new england clam chowder (bowl $6), lobster roll ($16), fried shrimp ($16), sea scallop scampi ($19), cheeseburger ($8.50). Trust me on this one, the food is outrageously good.

Every so often old Jeff Eats comes across a HOMERUN…this was one of those times.

Kelly’ Landing is open Monday-Thursday 11:30am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-11pm, Sunday 11am-10pm.

    Now that you’ve tried Kelly’s Landing you should really check out Snappers Seafood in Boynton

    You like entertainment in restaurants so you need to see this That’s better than when I saw the original in the Brooklyn Fox at a Murray The K show
