Kelly's of Naples
Every aspect of Kelly's of Naples reflects the essence of a swanky steakhouse. From the white tablecloths and leather booths and seats to the wood-paneled walls and dim, hanging lights in front of a full bar, the restaurant carries an air of sophistication matched only be its menu. Kelly's chefs don't rely on fancy preparation to impress their guests; instead they rely on the natural flavors in their ingredients, with steaks such as a bone-in porter or filet mignon not bearing any excess seasoning. Chefs prepare some steaks tableside as well, such as the steak diane, and the menu's entrees even dip into the sea with crab legs, lobster tail, and a rotating selection of fish flanks. Choice entrees are served at lunch as well, and Kelly's Sunday brunch offers a unique twist on many traditional breakfast dishes such as the jalapeño eggs benedict. Bar-goers can keep it low-key with a menu of sandwiches and appetizers ranging from escargot to prime rib, and the barkeeps can stir up any drink with their huge stores of liquor. To complement the food, live music fills the restaurant every evening from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
