We were at the Publix and decided to try it. When we got inside, we found that you could dine in, take-out, or have delivery. We decided the easiest would be to get the take out, and go home with it. I had the pork lo mein dinner, and my wife had the chicken lo mein dinner, which came with fried rice and an egg roll. It took about ten minutes to get the order, and we were able to watch it being cooked, so we knew it wasn't just something being warmed up. When we got it home it was still at a good temperature. My only criticism would be that there was not as much of the pork or chicken as expected. Overall, a decent price and portion size. We will be back again.

Had a work luncheon Friday November 15, 2013. Food and service were very good. Liked so much that I returned the next evening on the way home from the convention center. Will be returning soon.

My wife and I were at Kelly's Landing in May for our anniversary. We just wanted seafood, and had not been in that area of town for a long time. I had a bowl of New England clam chowder to start. It was the best I have had since our last visit to Cape Cod. The combination of clams, scrod, shrimp and scallop (Kelly's Fried Combo" entrée was also excellent, with my only complaint being there was too much to eat, so brought most of the scrod home for lunch the next day. My wife had baked scrod, and had the same problem of having too much. We both had a Killian's Red draft with the meal. The wait staff was very attentive. The restaurant has a very small capacity, so get there early (before 5PM), or you might have to wait a while.
