Kelly’s, Revere Beach

A couple of weekends ago took a drive to Revere Beach since the weather was great! We decided that while we were there we should try Kelly’s as it is an institution. We tried the lobster roll and a basket of fried shrimp. We love shrimp so that is a default for us and gives us a point of comparison for all of the seafood shacks. Anyway, in a nutshell they were both disappointing! The lobster in the roll was watery. It didn’t have the nice firm texture and all of the pieces were just too small. The shrimp too was a complete disappointment. They were rather bland. Also, they were all so perfectly uniform it made me suspect that they were frozen. It may be nostalgia which keeps people coming back but I won’t be going back anytime soon.
